HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1352

I like your old world look......

 

Its hard to believe you live in LA, given your great collection of tweeds (not this photo).

 

You remind me of the old LA when folks dressed more formally.

Here's picture from one of the very few rainy days that ever happen here sitting on my favorite bench on the Avenue des Chumps-Élysées with the Gryffindor tie, Polo Ralph Lauren jacket, Brooks Brothers PPBD shirt and umbrella, Tommy Hilfiger sweater vest, Hermes pocket square, Orvis cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds shoes.  

(No one ever notices that I am wearing a Gryffindor tie.   Sometime people ask if it's a University Of Second Choice tie.  It's rather annoying when anyone thinks that I might have gone to that sort of place.)

Sometimes its just best to resist our menswear urges. smile.gif

I like the look of the Bonafes but I've not heard anything about quality. I assume it's top notch but can you speak to it?

Edit: They're bloody nice

They are really nice priced and constructed in my opinion. The most important is fit and that's what they do. They fit really well. They are better than Carmina. Almost in the same realm as vass in my opinion

How did you work out fit, if you don't mind me asking?

Beard to tie matching is very well done.

That's just fuzz. I was born with more facial hair

You're so sweet.

I have a hard time thumbing that fit because I hate the slubby tie, but the overall look and colors are great.

One day you will wear both a slubby tie and loafers at the same time.
