Nice colors! Not digging the very sad gorge angle & buttonhole, though.

Off topic: Yesterday my boss and I went to a Artillery Range in Meaford, Ontario for a 15 hour photoshoot in freezing rain and I got to fire a big ass howitzer with the Canadian forces.

I love the colour and overcheck pattern on your jacket Don.

I wonder if there are others who, like me, scrolled down and were a little disappointed that it wasn't a full suit?

Sadly, I guess a "rapey look" is the old bugger's equivalent of "bedroom eyes". (My wife took the photo.)

Was nothing more than a silly joak.

It's not something you're used to saying, but there's no denying that fit is uniquely AAS's style and he pulls it off in a way that none of us could. I'd probably use a different square and socks, but I think it works for him.

He does not pull it off. Its a bad combination. Its too busy and the items just dont work with each other. The fact that that its discernible as AAS style does not make it an ok combo. I like a lot of AASs stuff, and some of it I like a hell of a lot, but that one was a no go for me.

Wearing a combination of items I haven't worn before, so I thought I'd post a fitpic. The shirt is a light grey flannel.

Nice cardigan, who's it from?

 

BTW, what's the proper terminology? I'm still confused with the English terms, ie.: cardigan, sweater, jumper, etc.

Cheers, it's a wool/cashmere mix by Massimo Dutti. Probably their only men's item that's good value for money. As I understand it, a cardigan has buttons on the front, a sweater/jumper doesn't.

That's what I thought it was. Thanks!

There are some funny interviews with Christoph Waltz (I think it was with Conan) where he explains the difference between Austrians and Germans... very funny.

Irony upon irony...

I think you mean Mozart.

 

I myself believed that Mozart was Austrian until fairly recently, when someone challenged me on it. So I did some googling. Yes, he was born in Salzburg, but at the time, that city was an independent city-state under the aegis of the Holy Roman Empire (as was the rest of what later became Germany), not ruled by the Hapsburgs in Vienna. Mozart's family were German - his father Leopold hailed from Augsburg.

 

Of course, you could make a similar argument about Hitler, whose parents were also German. But unlike Mozart, Hitler's birthplace near Linz was most definitely part of Austria at the time.

 

Actually my mother was from Linz. We uncovered an old photo in her archive, which my father identified as being either a distant cousin or perhaps a previous boyfriend. Alarmingly, in the photo the gentleman was sporting a Hitler moustache and a side-swept fringe.
