Folks in DC panhandling aren't as fancy as TweedyProf.

This short film about an Oregon boot maker's woes in finding an apprentice showed up in my feeds today. At the very least, it has some cool video of bootmaking.

But I do love a good SF rant. Carry on.

For got to add the separate pieces are a decade apart for beggars clothing.

I can see the coat and shirt together, but the tie makes me wonder with out seeing the pants and shoes. The gold or yellow seems to bright unless he has a gold pocket watch to balance it out.

Too right. As one should.

Take notes, n00bz - balance bright with bling.

I sort of disagree (about the "should"), but I do disapprove of baseball caps and flip flops at any decent restaurant.

It's about acknowledging where you are and showing respect, I think, and with current norms, a jacket and tie aren't really necessary to do that anymore

What heresy is this?!?!? Sator notes, "The captions says that this is for business and that the coat is dark BROWN! ^_^ The trousers and waistcoat are of shepherd's check. The tailor was Hawes and Curtis of Dover Street.". And this is from the 1950's!!!! The BEST of the 1950's!

Ok, maybe the tie isn't an absolute must, but I'd never go any place nice for dinner without at least a dark jacket.

 It might be some places but not others.

 

"Decent restaurant" and "nice place" are so vague as to be useless, I think, for making decisions regarding appropriate dress in individual cases.  

 

In any event the principle for restaurants is no different than for any other place:  know the environment and dress accordingly.

 

Cheers,

They are traced on so that you can see the detail of the cut and fit of the garments. Otherwise, they are not improved. They are mostly from the German tailoring magazine Rundschau: the point of which was to show the best techniques in tailoring. Yes, the best tailoring was that good.

Does this mean that a jacket has not been "done right" in some forty-odd years?
