Where's all the Savile Row stuff? - Page 9

Interesting points.

I think that all the full shots of jackets in this thread are for one person, but from a person who has used several Savile Row shops over time. Since they all essentially fail to your eye, and since it seems implausible that these shops of varying stylistic inclinations and competing commercial interests would conspire together to produce failure, I gather that you do not like the taste or stylistic understanding of the person who bought these jackets and suits.

You've described what you consider "extreme poor taste." Would you give examples of what you consider extreme good taste? For example, photographs of yourself? If not yourself, is there any person here who posts photographs that does not have taste as extremely good as you (I assume that your good taste is extremely good), but good enough so that we can contrast with the stuff that you do not like?

And did you ever get that Prada leather coat?

Why are you asking about this? Are you some kind of internet stalker?

I like to mix a Neapolitan red nose with SR kit. Avoids the "matchy matchy" thing.

Stop all this silliness about red noses.

But a red wig would go well with pink sunglasses

Of course, the world's best bespoke nosemaker is on Long Island.

What's throwing some, I think, is that sock puppets normally do not have noses of any color.



And if I'm not mistaken, the most sweater-y and lived in jacket S. posted is Breanish, and Breanish is not for the squeamish.

This really belongs on the FNB forum. Or has there finally been a glut?

Let your fingers do the stalking.

If you count UK food (yes, including Ramsay), it inflates their crime rates even further.

Considering that you and your FNB-troll buddies have managed to amuse yourselves and sustain a forum for two-plus years doing nothing but bitch about me and Kabbaz, I am sure that you did.

Instead, you've come across as an ill-mannered and uneducated lout, and have been treated that way.

I'm not so sure. If there is such a heavy emphasis placed on proper communications in these forums, as you imply, then it seems the most respected people here would be adept at communicating, regardless of the tone of the newbie. Ne c'est pas?

Anyway, I wasn't feeling "treated", as a lout or otherwise. I'm still not. A debate is about the facts, right? Not about me or about you.

If you'd like to discuss the topic at hand, have at it. If instead you'd like to reprimand my loutishness (or whatever), well, you're spending your own time. The message to all forum readers though, is that when losing on the merits, attack based on rules of protocol and order...

Sorry, Old Bean. I don't post on FNB. My beef with Kabbaz has nothing to do with you. Perhaps you'd like to issue me an apology?

Considering that all your posts here so far have been either to troll me, bitch about Kabbaz, or carry water for FNB ... no.

That's not true. My prior posts on this thread have had nothing to with Kabbaz or you or FNB, for example. I do believe in calling people to task when I think they've gone too far -- that's true. And I don't think I've been wrong yet. Methinks you're being a BIT paranoid. "Here a troll, there a troll, everywhere a troll, troll"

Anyway, I am afraid I must go out.
