@Gerry Nelson mind if I inquire as to the details of the linen fabric and the tie?

 

Hi, sorry I missed this. The tie is navy shantung silk from Conrad Wu and I'm not sure of the details of the linen. It's an OTR suit from Boglioli.

They keep a bitterness against this two country (a bit more against Germany). In 80's it was also pretty current to have a father or an uncle who died during WWII. Well, this kind of story is very common for this kind of region that has often been invaded. Well, I like your story, that's pretty interesting, thanks you for sharing it.

 

They speak a dialect called "Allemanisch", which is spoken in the southwest of germany, the west of austria and the german speaking part of switzerland, too. I have no problem to have a conversation with a old-established Alsatian, unfortunatelly they are a dying species.

When you ask a old-established Alsatian, if he is a german or a french, he will answer you he is an Alsatian.

I don't like the unbuttoned look here. The rest of the fit is boring and conservative.

As they say, you can't please all the people all the time.

Seems too big in the shoulders and upper chest to me. Sorry to say, but it looks to me like you're wearing someone else's jacket. shog[1].gif

Yes "Allemanisch" is spoken in other region, but that's not the same dialect, there is many many different "allemanisch" only in Switzerland, and in nord Italy they speak another kind of german as in west Austria and in southwest Germany.

That is certainly true. The "Allemanisch" spoken in Alsace is very different from the versions you have in Switzerland. Some of the Swiss variaties are really hard to understand, even for native speakers of German. Often you have to ask the Swiss to speak "hochdeutsch" instead, thankfully almost all of them can. The dialects in northern Italy are close to the Swiss dialects, the Austrian mountain dialects are a completely different thing (which incidentally is Arnold Schwarzenegger's mother tongue). The weird thing about the Swiss dialects is that they all sound insanely cheerful. Even the most foul curse words sounds like you've just been invited for a nice evening of fondue and glüwein. The only other language I know that sounds equally cheerful is Norwegian.

Very true. A significant portion of my ancestors emigrated from Alsace-Lorraine… some amazing stories of the old country.

As someone who tries to get away from the "I only wear white or blue shirts"-posse, I have followed the discussion on shirt colours with interest. Don't think I have any pale yellow shirts yet, but maybe that will be a project for the future.

 

One colour scheme that used to be a staple of every gentleman's wardrobe was "off-whites" (I'm thinking about the spectrum cream-ivory-wheat). But you rarely see that nowadays, at least not as solids (still see it as a base for tattersalls and the like). I quite like it, more versatile than you might think. Especially useful when you wear a sc or a suit with a textured fabric with muted colours, like tweed, corduroy or heavy wool. The two top pics are taken with an ivory shirt from Emma Willis, the two further down with a Drake's shirt in wheat.

 

What are the views in the forum on these type of shirt colours?

 

Not my thing, but imo you do Dandy as well as any on the board.

 

re shirts-  I like ecru for warm, and of course a pale pale blue for cooler fits-  grey or navy suits.

I can think of a language/dialect or two with the opposite effect-  Scots English, Quanzhou Hokkien, Jersey English, Klingon

Is that a Luxire fabric for the shirt? How do you find the feel of it?
