Passing thought: Noodles is to the Noodles' Good Natured Advice Thread as J. Geils is to the J. Geils band. Noodles is prob. more fun than J. Geils, though.

Also, I thought you were a redneck (not used as derogratory term) American with a southern accent. Now, I have to read your posts with a British accent.

So if I've always been mean to my friends does that mean I'm actually secretly British and just didn't know it?

Boston's probably near enough, especially if you also drink tea, and can say "fuck off" silently just by raising your eyebrows.

I do the former. I'll have to practice more on the latter.

I wonder what it is about British accent that most people find it so...awesome. 

My wife has had her exposure to British accent while living in Europe and she says the British accent is more gentleman-like and sounds punctual/accurate. Her description of American accent was...buttery. I asked how she could say that when she lived in a country that spoke the most buttery language...

Your wife has excellent taste...in some respects. :)

YES!!!

She said, "너무 느끼하게 들려요."

 

The best English translation would be...greasy?

Yeah, I've asked a few women why they are attracted to a British accent and they can never really describe it. I think it's just some little girl's fairy tale notion of Prince Harry riding in on a horse and taking them away to a castle when in reality they'll be relentlessly hit on by a bunch of blue collar dudes from Sheffield who have been drunk since noon. Hyperbole but you get the idea.

I'm not too fond of a British accent, or most accents, on a woman because my mind inevitably wanders to what it would sound like while getting nagged. Yeah, no. I think the novelty would wear off for me.

My wife doesn't really hear my accent these days - she is always taken aback when someone fawns over it or asks me to repeat something merely to hear it again. Given the exposure of British television shows over here now I am surprised it is found at all interesting.

Don't forget white pants too.

Please do get in touch with Greg soon gents, so we can be sure to get the 8 required to get this made up (Tallia di Delfino wool/cashmere guncheck).

Sigh, the Formosa SC MTO seems like a pretty good deal. My problem is resources and not knowing how they will fit. I thought about trying them on by buying a suit and then returning it, but that seemed like an a--hole thing to do. So probably will have to sit out this first round at least.

 

Shift in topic, gents, but what's wrong with patterned linen SCs/suits. I've seen Manton assert that linen should never be patterned, but I have no idea why. Anyone have an explanation for this position?

Fuck his position in the nose.

But if I had to guess, it's because the wrinkling will distort the pattern.
