@DerekS The conductor is on the left in the picture, the Brooks Brothers blazer is on the right.

Yes, every so often someone does tell me what nice vintage clothes I am wearing and then I mention that they were new when I bought them.

As there has recently been some discussion about collar roll, a picture showing the collar roll on my old L L Bean shirt.  As you can see in the other picture, I (sort of) got my pocket square squared away after I took this picture.


People Of Earth, the "Officious Preppy Handbook" is a joke book (not a fashion book) and was in the "Humor" section in bookstores when it was published.  There is nothing wrong with polyester (or other synthetic) blends.  That rather tiresome woman who wrote that dreadful book ruined everything for everyone, and now clothing wears out or gets eaten by insects just like it used to before science tried to save us from all that bother.

The temperatures are to be mild by the afternoon today, so I am going to try going without a coat and hat, though by the weekend, both items will be necessary again, if weather prognostications are to be believed.

I've mentioned before, but I am curious about what Mr. Six is hiding with the blurred out pictures behind him. Perhaps something which would reveal his identity as a superhero?

Mr. Six is my new favorite person. TD!

Olajuwon would be a great subject.
post #2016 of 2071
Weeeellllllllll ... To alleviate that burden as quickly as possible I'll go ahead and say that I'm a LeBron stan. TD is the greatest power forward of all time and I respect his skills and longevity and appreciate his quiet dorky humor, but he doesn't really interest me. And I can't stand the Spurs as an organization (because I have a long memory and am petty).

But here's the full TD chapter, which is great. https://issuu.com/fdadmin/docs/freedarkoduncanexcerpt_02

Olajuwon would have been good for a style guide analysis but they didn't do one. I think they only did them for players who were active at the time of the first FreeDarko book (2008). And Olajuwan was a great player--whom I enjoyed watching play--but perhaps not that interesting.

One often encounters bizarre businesses when walking around in Los Angeles. Walked past this earlier today. It's a "Bridal Exchange". Today is Sunday, so it wasn't open, but it looks like a place where unhappy brides exchange things that they don't want for things that they do want The bride in the picture in one of the windows appears to have achieved happiness by exchanging her groom for a horse. (Please, no comments that the place should be called a "bridle exchange" or that if one has a horse one needs a groom.)

Brooks Brothers blue wool and polyester blazer, L L Bean yellow OCBD shirt, Beau Ties Of Vermont tie, Hermes pocket square, blue and yellow surcingle belt, Orvis trousers, and Allen-Edmonds Walnut Strands. On a large enough monitor you can also see that I have (sort of) managed to get my watch (well, the watch chain) into the picture. It's harder to get pocket watches into pictures than it is to get wrist watches into pictures.

I do not know if there is also a "Groom Exchange" where unhappy grooms can exchange their brides for horses and then have an inside track to (eventually) getting a few pair of shell cordovan shoes.

For fans of pictures of small parts of people rather than whole people (there must be some fans based on the number of thumbs these sort of pictures get) and for fans of brass buttons.......

Many years ago, when I got this blazer at Brooks Brothers, there was no problem having working button holes added. Back then, two buttons was the default number of cuff buttons on three button jackets (and three was the default number of cuff buttons on two button jackets) but you could have any number of cuff buttons that you wanted. I wanted three buttons, so they put three buttons on the cuffs.

Recently, there seems to be an odd practice of leaving some of the cuff buttons unbuttoned. I have no idea why people do this. Maybe they miss having fly buttons to forget to button (since the invention of zippers) so they forget to button their cuff buttons instead.

(On the off chance that any unhappy brides look at the posts in this group, the "Bridal Exchange" is on Olympic Blvd just east of Bundy in West Los Angeles.)

People's Choice: mossrockss and jcmeyer tie - we'll let @Caustic Man do the honors of the tie-breaker, given his stated adoration of my fit

On the whole, this set falls a little flat and the stats confirm as much. Some bright spots, including the episode where Cleav took on the English wind and won, but most everyone in here regularly puts up better. Eh well, life goes on.
post #2020 of 2071
I think @Sander is the outstanding fit from the last batch. That's a very well executed solid/stripe/neat/irregular pattern combination in well-chosen colors.

A few of JCM's favorite things:

  • Crusty’s quaint park

The ever popular "Piece Of A Person Picture" that also gives away how 5'6" me got my tie to come out (almost) right. If you look closely, you can see that my tie goes around twice (sometimes called an "Albert" knot), which is what I do with ties that are too long.
