@smittycl Thank you my friend!  A lot of people (who aren't sartorially minded) think that the DB is too old for younger guys to wear, so I hope to bring it back in the minds of the everyday people!  

 

Some people at work do say that Italians have "brought it back", but to some of us, the DB never left.

Did anyone attend?

Yes, we had a nice attendance - the local JCI group had invited us over.

Wondering why anyone would go around with bare ankles when socks come in so many weird and wonderful colors and patterns but bare ankles don't.


Brooks Brothers blue blazer, PPBD shirt, tie, and pocket square, Orvis Trousers, Rugby Ralph Lauren socks, and Allen-Edmonds tan suede Strandmoks.

Oddest thing I saw today, in Brooks Brothers on Rodeo Drive, plastic food like the plastic food in front of restaurants in Japan, except in Japan, the plastic food shows what the restaurant serves, but Brooks Brothers doesn't serve ice cream or cupcakes.  (I have no idea what the heffalump on the shelf below the plastic food is.)


Biggest mistake I made today (so far) trying a sample of the Brooks Brothers "1818" cologne (which some of you might have seen recommended by a certain men's style blogger) which made me cough for a few minutes after spraying some on the sample stick.

Sticking with Trumper's Lime in the summer and Taylor Of Old Bond Street Eton College (which I think smells similar to Creed Green Irish Tweed) in the winter.

Extra thumb for use of the word 'heffalump'.

Thank you.  Do I get any more extra thumbs for recently reading "The Red House Mystery"?

I just started reading Goldeneye Where James Bond Was Born: Ian Fleming's Jamaica, and in that spirit I was moved to emulate the literary Bond. Fleming often dressed his character in "a navy blue tropical worsted suit, white shirt, and black knit tie". Bond probably would not have worn navy blue shoes, though.

Andy, I could have done with different links (they play as a bit costume-y to me), but everything else is flawless :slayer:

If we're going to nitpick, Fleming Bond would wear black slip on shoes (ok, fine), short sleeve dress shirt (not recommended), and would probably have a neater fold to the pocket square if he had one (definitely recommended).

Yeah, I should have acknowledged the links were not canonical. But I only recently acquired them and I like them. So I wore 'em.

I should have said said Bond would have worn black shoes instead of saying he wouldn't wear blue ones. That would have been clearer. In some instances, Fleming does call out short sleeved shirts, but certainly not in all instances. He also has Bond wearing nylon shirts in some books and that ain't gonna happen for me. Bond might have used a TV fold, which I also won't do. But he may not have. I don't recall an instance where Fleming describes a pocket square. Neater fold?

 

Perhaps I should have said "homage" rather than "emulate". :)

Via di Medici. I picked it up at Daffy's, a discount retailer in the US. I've searched but have found an additional piece by the brand.

Alas, poor Daffy's - I knew it, Horatio, a discounter of infinitely low prices, though only occasional bargains.
