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.)
