Ultimately true.

You can't change on the knicks though. At least I can't.

Knicks was even easier as I don't really follow basketball. It is fitting for Brooklyn, two truly second rate teams, the Islanders and the Nets (part of what I love about BK is the charming inferiority complex it has to its big brother across the East River).

Back on topic, PB, thats a shocking makeup for you, truly shocking! All you'd need to do is tell me you're having a few white shirts done with it for me to think that the world has gone to the dogs!

I actually picked up a couple of white shirts two weeks ago.

BTW, I think Brooklyn has a SUPeriority complex compared to its big brother across the river. smile.gif

Oh and I am getting forward pleats on this one. The first time I am wearing pleats since I cannot remember.

Vest?
post #4596 of 10913
I thought about it, but I think it would go to waste because at around 17oz it is going to be an effort not to sweat as it is.

I was just talking to Frank the other day about doing one forward pleat on my next suit. What is up with all this Ercoles ESP Groupthink?
post #4598 of 10913
I think the 1 fwd pleat is a cool idea...I saw a guy at MSG with that style trouser and thought it looked good...one day, maybe on my Airforce Blue Minnis Flannel, whenever I get that made up.

Like women with their periods I guess.

I have 2.5 meters of Minnis navy fresco (0516) if anyone is interested.

I received 2.5m of this as a creative Christmas gift but it's not for me. PM if interested. A bit darker and richer in person than the photo suggests.

Why no love for it? I have a lenght too and it looks very good, I'm sure it will make a great sport coat.

Call me a coward. I guess I don't know how to wear it. I like my motifs more micro. Besides, I have a smaller houndstooth that I like just as well. bored.gif

post #4604 of 10913
Fwiw, I don't think small houndstooth looks good, bigger size is much more preferable for a coat. The cloth is hefty and spongy and I wish it was less bulky but color and pattern is nice. It would go well with chinos, jeans and obviously with grey flannel.
post #4605 of 10913

Yes, spongy for sure. Hmm. If no one buys it soon you may persuade me to reconsider. Though I am mostly a solids man, and from there springs my resistance.
