^^ Argyle wool ties seem interesting. Want to have a feel of them stuff. Going Windsor on the knit ties on the models are pretty terribad too. Monkey fisting 6cm ties is pretty facepalm.gif.

The collars either seem overly high on the shirts or that they use body building bulldog models with no necks or both.

Brown in town? Wear whatever you want, whatever pleases you.

Some of them are a touch high. Most of them see far better than the trend toward low collars that we had/have however.

I checked DJs in the city today and they did have a navy pinstripe HBone suit in my size. It's priced at $510 rather than $360 - still a good deal, do you think?

I was just at DJs too. Had a quick browse around ground floor as well as suits department. DJs seem to be getting desperate now I think. They now have 60% off a lot of stuff. Some of their mainline Paul Smith stuff might be worth a look and saw mainline Dolce & Gabbana suits going for $550 or there abouts (I still wouldn't touch them though). There a a few white Herringbone mesh polos on sale which I think is a worthy purchase at $46 as their collars are finished like soft shirt collars so they should hold shape.

I went into Sirricco earlier to check a few things out and it appears that some of their stuff is pretty well reasonable compared to elsewhere. Sizes seem very limited though.

Isn't it interesting that we all still go in to DJs. Those retail execs think all we do is shop on the interweb. How little they know.

I suspect you might have to try a few Siricco outlets since they don't all stock the same thing. My Italian wool scarves from there are still holding up pretty well after 4 years - great bargain at $20 each!  It's the place I go to when I've forgotten my umbrella :)

That scene is quite hard to read through, but push through it though as chapters such as this (and the clothes narratives) gives the entire story it's depth.

 

Plus it's good fap material if you get really desperate.

PJohnson also seem more than capable of producing the goods.

^^A velvet jacket is one of those badass items I always wanted. Tried a velvet sort of morning coat once just for fun and man was I sexy.
post #12086 of 55926
Yeah I have a black AG velvet jacket that I used to wear quite a lot when I went out back when I was still single and trying far too much too impress the fairer sex, and they absolutely loved it. I still have it but it's a size too small now, but cut very traditionally and not at all fashiony like AG stuff nowadays, though I bought it in 2004. It's still in great condition because it only got worn 4-6 times a year at most. Should put it on eBay one of these days.

I have the same jacket, purchased last year. It's very nice, and goes very well with summer chinos and (close your eyes, fxh) sockless loafers or driving mocs. At that price, I think that it is a very good deal, but that's just my opinion.

Gerry - no, not at all.

As is to be expected, the more outrageous shoes such as the spectators don't get as much wear, but I'm loath to get rid of them as they are such great summer shoes and they didn't cost me a great deal in the first place. I tend to wear my C&Js - the Drummonds and the Audleys - quite a lot, as well as the Santoni punch captoes, the Zegna plain captoe bals and a couple of pairs of EGs - one a punch captoe in chestnut and the other a pair of wingtip brogues in mahogany. So, in short, the most classic and versatile shoes get the most wear. Really, I could probably get rid of about two-thirds of the stuff in my wardrobe - shoes, suits, jackets, shirts and ties - and I wouldn't really miss it all that much.

Sorry I didn't see your post. A Single Man is a great "style" movie and Colin firth looks really good. Everything is very simple the way I like it and timeless. His house in it is especially fantastic as well as the merc he drives.
