Shrug, it's got academics in it who say academic things all the time. Compared to his other books where there are neither I don't think it's an unfair statement since it's relative, but I doubt it's really worth talking about in depth. I was just responding to the idea that the piece was maybe a bit basic and simple, and saying that I think because Chabon could have written a lot more academically possibly says it was a choice to have the piece more personal rather than polished, researched or intellectual.

Bills Khakis have been my preferred brand of chinos for a number of years STP have these on sale the M2 sadly not pleated but good comfortable chinos and they last for years.

Just a quick picture of a wedding we attended yesterday. It was an extremely windy and super cold day/ night and we were at the Palm Beach/ boat house. I regret not wearing flannel instead of linen.

Watched Wonderboys (instead of reading, I know) last night during the Chabon discussion. Highly underrated film...

Great book and film.

Soundtrack is pretty good as well.

As Bob says, only a fool in here would think he's got anything to prove...

Are the LBM sizing consistent? If I remember correctly, you are size 36. What is the shoulder and length measurements on yours?

On a side note, looking forward to some new Caruso and Maco suits arriving. Hopefulky minimal alterations rquired.

I'm going to be working in Sydney next week. Any recommendations for menswear shops to visit? Could use some dress shoes and will have a day to do a bit of shopping.

Also, any family friendly tourist must see spots?

Where are you visiting from? If Melbourne then probably not much extra on offer menswear-wise!

Strand Arcade (off Pitt St Mall) is good for shoes, Double Monk upstairs, Joseph's downstairs (although been years since I bothered with the latter).

A ferry from Circular Quay to Manly beach is nice if a fine day.

Sizing is consistent. 3b are about 28.15" on 36r. Sleeves about 24.75" and shoulders 17.5". I have total three 3b suits. 2b on other hand a bit shorter 27.85", other measurements same. They are loose fit with roomy chest and waist and alterations take care of all this. I have two 2b suits from them. Pick stitching every where and my tailor hand stitches after alterations (extra charge). Working cuffs and completely unlined. Great summer suit .
