You're hitting some solid singles and doubles lately @TheoProf. I definitely like the looser drape v. the slim BB Regent fit, and the natural shoulder suits you very well. Someone mentioned spread v. BD collars looking better on you. The spread looks good indeed, but I think you can get away with BD collars as long as they have a hefty roll to them.

Luger, couple things: r rope shoulders a 'thing' in France (I'm making assumptions, apologies) and r those Weston's on your feet?  


Not Weston but a small brand, Lord Allister. This is a vintage pair of shoes I bought for 15EURO, in an excellent condition (9/10). I don't know if rope shoulders is a thing here, all I can say is that we are exactly between English and Italian influences.

thx.  The French look, if there is one, typified by say Camps de Luca, seems to be quite squareish and high shoulders, if not roped.  Weston's 598 demi-Chasse is one of my grail shoes.  I like the style so much I had something similar made but without the apron that runs from the quarters around the heel.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a Queen's Birthday celebration at the local British High Commission. In between the great food and drinks was a ... selfie cab?

From an American style blogger (with a quote from  the "Officious Preppy Handbook") why ducks are preppy:

One of the great advantages of an international group like "Styleforum" is that one gets to see people from all over the world since a few dozen of the billions of people on Earth post pictures of themselves.  The rest of the people of Earth might have been discouraged from posting pictures of themselves by the bizarre comments.

An example of this was a while back when someone posted a picture sitting down with his jacket buttoned.  Then there was a bizarre comment from a UK member who said that his father, who wore bespoke clothes and was an officer in the army (probably in the REME), always unbuttoned his jackets when he sat down and that not doing so was an unforgivable sin. The poster who posted his picture sitting down with his jacket buttoned never posted a picture again.

Yet, a recent picture by Annie Leibovitz for "Vanity Fair" shows that former officers in the Royal Navy (unlike former officers in the REME) sometime sit down without unbuttoning their jackets.

Pshaw. Everyone who is anyone knows that when a man sits down he must unbutton the top button and button the bottom one. There are practical reasons for this. As pollution has eroded the ozone layer and weakened the gravity it has become ever harder to remain comfortably seated. Unbuttoning the top button while keeping the bottom one buttoned allows the center of gravity to shift lower, thus making it easier to remain seated. Over time this tendency has become enshrined in tradition to the point that to not do so is considered rude when in the company of ladies. Things are, of course, somewhat different in Europe where the tendency is to remove the jacket and put it back on backwards when sitting.

If someone is so thin-skinned that they are chased away from an Internet forum merely due to receiving an overly hyperbolic comment about jacket buttoning conventions then they have much bigger problems than seeking solutions to sartorial conundrums.

This constant harping on about 'bizarre comments' is getting tedious. Are we supposed to post pics and make no comments or critiques? Or do we only allow praise and nothing more? If the answer to these questions is in the negative then it's inevitable that some of the comments may be deemed by some people to be unhelpful, overly critical, possibly ridiculous or even bizarre. That's the inevitable consequence we pay for 'free speech' on the Internet. One man's 'bizarre comment' is another man's humourous anecdote / helpful critique / pearl of wisdom / tough love revelation etc.
