Though not that long lasting.

I hear novacane helps with durability.

I wouldn't know. Then again, if you use the stick for selfies, there's no need for latex anyway.

Attach adhesive element to the end of a Brigg umbrella.

Stick camera device on said adhesive.

I also have a pair of Allen Edmonds Park Avenues. By wearing these with the suits, I believe that I can do touristy things without looking like a tourist. Think New York businessman going out to cocktails.

To go with this outfit, I'm interested in sourcing a classy selfie stick, perhaps something from one of the British or Neapolitan umbrella makers. I'd be open to a variety of materials (chestnut, whangee, malacca). Brass fittings preferred. Elegance is a must. Cost is no object. I want this to be an heirloom piece that I can someday pass down to a son or daughter.

Any recommendations?

Is this a joke? Asking about selfie-sticks and claiming that an Indochino looks "stellar". Get over it, accept you are a tourist - just like a myriad other people striding about New York's streets and enjoy your visit.

As to handing a 'selfie stick' down as some sort of heirloom in the making, I suppose one could laugh at the idea.

Then you would not have either bought from IndoChino or deluded yourself that these are anything but rags. "the epitome of bespoke" for suits comes from Saville Row or Chris Despos.

I am surely mistaken in detecting some hostility in your tone. I have modeled my own style after a few contemporary icons: the proprietor of the weblog Voxsartoria, the author Martin Mosebach, and Prince Charles. Perhaps none of them would purchase Indochino, but I believe that I have been able to achieve similar or greater effect at much lower cost.

I like this thread :rotflmao:

 

Hard to get 'classy' with a selfie stick though.

If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, the law's likely to treat it as a duck.

It's sort of how if you sell brass paperweights which are dimensionally identical to brass knuckles, they're going to be treated as brass knuckles, not as harmless paperweights. (Yes, it's been tried.) And carrying around a "condiment dispensing device" which sprays 400,000 SHU "high intensity food seasoning," onto your food (at a distance of up to 7 feet) at the push of a button, will still be treated as a canister of pepper spray. (Also been tried.)

'Bout the only dodge along these lines which still usually flies is carrying around a 4 C-cell Maglite flashlight. Even though everyone knows it's really just a substitute lead pipe. And even with the Maglite, it's often helpful to have some handy darkness available, to explain why you were carrying it around.

Of course, laws/regulations/interpretations/policies/etc. can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
