Ah ok ...

Do all DBs button similarly on both sides? If so, mind == blown.

You have gotta post some pics wearing these in natural light.

I remember the days when you could count on seeing a great Iammatt WAYWT post like you could a Vox one.
I looked great yesterday. Sweats and a t-shirt today. Want pics?

Sweet, Bill. You're like the Aportnoy of Rubinacci.

I am glad you posted them without wearing them. If I were to just come across these pictures on the internet without knowing the characters, my immediate reaction would be "Rubinaccis!"

I'm sure you'll post pictures wearing them eventually, and I look forward to seeing "Whnay's Rubinaccis!"

Don't take this the wrong way as I have the utmost respect for the house and craft of Rubinacci, but your pictures got me thinking . . . the best bespoke I have seen has always ended up with this question . . . "Your suit/jacket looks amazing, who is the maker?"

No, you aren't. Quit fooling yourself

I saw a lady in the elevator today wearing the same fabric with a matching skirt and a burgundy silk blouse. What are the odds? Do you ever wear your hair in a bun?

You actually leave the confines of your bunker and spend time in the real world? What a thought... BTW I grabbed a photo of you in the same elevator from the security feed. Nino cuts a fine suit.

I was performing my famous "string dance" here.

Pfft, dog boy is being kind, that's a shot of me before I started dating a girl whose family owns several bakeries. Might say I stepped in honey with that one...or, at least jelly filling. Ordinarily I would've actually had a jelly mustache but I used my pocket square to wipe it off, notice it is completely missing, accidentally inhaled I'm afraid.

Awesome, Whnay.

It may please you to know that I am giving up on the Fresco warnings. I remember a sociology lecture where it was theorized that the poor self-discriminate and punish themselves by avoiding the very services that could help them. Sadly, they wrongly assume they deserve a stigma and want others to shun them. I am theorizing that a similar principle is at work with tailors and fabrics and that people who wear items like Fresco cloth actually want people to recognize that they're nerds rather than conceal it.

Bill, please sport the Fresco blazer to the NYC get together later this month. I know it's not seasonal, but I won't be able to steal it from you otherwise.

Foof,

I thought I read on your blog that you just got back all your repaired digs from Rubinacci including the 1Bs that they converted them to 3R2.

Fresco warning? What's wrong with fresco?
