The shirts are cut for studs but are sold with buttons (which are sewn onto a strip of cotton). They can be worn either way.

A Tom Ford.

Why not? RLPL had a really terrific chocolate brown dinner jacket maybe 5 years ago?

I assume that you are making a joke, but I would second this suggestion. Tom Ford's extravagance and overtly sexual style is a lot more conducive to an evening event than Thom Browne.

Lanvin is becoming nauseatingly ubiquitous. Not a bad label, but the moment has passed.

Yes, Thom Browne is more suited to one of those art gallery openings though I'd be tempted to wear really extravagant Tom Ford just to upset their hipster sensibilities.

I think Lanvin is becoming one of those obvious "in-brands", bought by people who think they are really on it but don't know any better.

Tee-shirts and sneakers are always the case--fairly inexpensive things probably with a few logos on there. Then there are the sunglasses.

Lanvin doesn't have too many logo pieces. Last season for the summer there were two polos.
But, yes, most of the people who recognize Lanvin as being "ultra lux" save for a month to buy the sneakers instead of a $2600 wool/cashmere double breasted blazer with grey wool covered buttons.

It's not that, it's this:

I grudgingly admit it's my favorite... very of the period... a Bond Christmas movie, to watch after watching the Avengers Christmas episode "Too Many Christmas Trees". Okay, maybe my holiday rituals are strange.

I kind of like the purple one, I think it could be pulled of with a color mathcing bowtie etc in a brown tux/dinner jacket ... But you are not EXACTLY formal anymore Since your on the french theme, how about a Ted Lapidus EXTRAVAGANZA You would have to stuble uppon one though... But anny late 60's couture dinner jacket would do i think, In brown

I was finally able to score the white shirt from Charvet in Paris....I will post pics once it comes in to give everyone a better idea of what these look like in person.
