Big guys though, there is no middle ground.  You are all in much of the time.  A single mistake (like Microsoft and dismissing mobile early on), and you are playing from a big deficit.  Running or owning own of those companies would be insanely stressful, and is only for very specific personalities.

 

This is interesting stuff; for all the content that gets post on styleforum, there's rarely any discussion about styleforum as a platform. You should write some of this up at some point, about your experiences running the forum, the backend legwork etc etc.

Morning, gents. Been a while. Looks like a great, active thread.

 

 

Very much enjoying this Christian Kimber Firenze square, highly recommended.

Lots of railroad tracks today

Yesterday in the office and out and about but feeling a bit flat as these are the last days I shall be spending in the building, which is scheduled for re-development.  It's rather tatty of course, but has a nice leafy aspect.  New (to me) John Comfort tie helped a bit...

Not known on the Forum for my sartorial tailored side but aside from Streetwear I find comfort in this aspect of my wardrobe. #Samuelsohn #DrinkwatersxIndividualizedshirt #Seward&Stearn #Hiltl #Alden #OmegaSeamaster #oddpocketsquare

An Empire Biscuit and I showing the importance of coordinating one's accessories with one's cookies. Shortly after this picture was taken, I (in 21st Century Speak) deleted this cookie.


Brooks Brothers blue blazer, wide stripe PPBD shirt, and white Irish linen pocket square, J Press red tie with little blue lions rampant, and (not shown in this picture) Orvis tan trousers and Allen-Edmonds tan suede Strandmoks.  

On the off chance everyone isn't tired of seeing the same old Orvis tan trousers and Allen-Edmonds tan suede Strandmoks in many of my pictures, here they are again, along with the LEGO-like yellow rubber station platform edge and one (of two) rails along with some rail anchors.


Extra Added Attraction-While on the other side of the local version of Checkpoint Charlie and in the local version of the Eastern Zone, walked past a shop possibly named after some of those who post bizarre and/or adversarial comments (often without ever posting pictures of themselves).

^^^ Am I correct in assuming that is a linen jacket and wool trousers? The two fabrics don't look right together.

Yes. Linen blend jacket but still. Agree that there is not perfect harmony between the fabrics. Tried with grey chinos first but that came off as too casual. Strange thing pants. I have loads of them but rarely the ones I need.

I get a lot of use out of these Brooks Brothers linen pants. Seems like a good match to the gray glen plaid sport coat.

At a recent function, where I met my old manager and mentor:


Charles Tyrwhitt shirt, Trenery sport coat, Tailor Store chinos (Shanghai Tianzi monk soes unseen).

Could work. I actually have blue linen pants but in a darker navy. Maybe that lighter shade is more versatile.
