Thumbed for wearing a suit in that heat. I feel your pain... But why wear DB in those temperatures?

Goodness, lighting and photography really does make a quantum difference.

It's not the better period of the year for taking pictures here... the morning is dark, I'm at work during the day and when I arrived at home it's dark again. Hope at the beginning of the spring i'll be able to take better pictures as each year.

Because after India I am off to Paris and I only brought two suits. Three day conference: suit+tie 1st day, tieless DB the second, and grey jacket+blue trousers the third. Diminishing formality as the conference advances, minimizing the number of items I need to haul across the continents. The suit for the first day is a 3-piece (only a 2-piece in India) that is my attire for the Opera in Paris.

Forgot to post from a week ago. This shirt is my first order from Proper Cloth which I tried out of curiosity. I used their online size generator, and the resulting fit was pretty much spot on. If order again, I will reduce the collar size from 15 to 14.75 and shave off a little from the waist measurement.

After some (large) absence here, I come back here and see that your enthusiasm for clothes and good taste remains the same. And though you don't follow the year fashion you keep elegant, always looking like a gentleman that you certainly are. I congratulate you as always. Good to see that still are gentlemen holding the old school phlegm slayer:icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

On the tone in this thread:

I'm pretty new here but hesitate to call myself a newbie since I have been active on other blogs and forums for quite a while. I agree that it would be welcome to have more comments and criticism in the thread. Always valuable and interesting, whether you agree or not.

But I have also noticed that a few members here favour the sledgehammer type of rhetoric, which just doesn't work on any level. I don't get insulted easily, in my line of work you need thick skin, but it's similar to loud sustained noices: in the beginning it's a little annoying but after a while it fades into a humming drone in the background.

There are plenty of people who write comments here that are sincere and direct, but also insightful, respectful and witty. I'm sure those comments will be read and considered. Others a humming drone_____________________________________________________________

It is delightful to see you back posting, Lisbon, and even more delightful to re-connect, as I expect that I (and my husband) will be in Lisbon in mid-February 2016 for a visit, as neither of us has ever been to that lovely city.

Thank you for the compliments as well, though I am unsure exactly what a "phlegm slayer" is - I would have thought that to be a cough drop smile.gifsatisfied.gif

Personally, I don't really care about the "tone" of the criticism as much as I find there to be little, if any feedback given compared to the past.  

 

  I feel that generally, many posters are not interested in others POV:  "I wear what I want, how I want, YOLO" and what have you.  Instagram etc may be the cause.

 

  I strongly dislike "thumbs" in place of feedback.  It is the easy button.  "I thumbed it, so I liked it.  No need to tell you why I liked it, or why. I didn't thumb because I don't and I can't be bothered to tell you why."

But accuracy of criticism doesn't in anyway speak to the manner in which it is delivered. I disagree that it is necessary to be "hard hitting" to be effective; I think these last several pages demonstrate that the opposite may be true.
 

 

If you read my first-post...it wasn't very hard hitting at all. It was clear and to the point.

 

But when people come in and start skewing what was otherwise very solid advice...a defense of a basic principle of shirting had to be taken.

I really never give any comments any more, and if, I only point at what I think is positive. I almost never get any comments my self. Well, might be om my Bob Dylan-disorder; incurable but delightful. 

 

To day in dusk, it's not dark yet, but we are getting there.
