Haha ... I have no idea why you'd think I'm big. I'm only 5'7'' in real life.

 

I'm interested in flannel mostly for the texture.

 

You could look at the Loro Piana Soft Touch book - about 270-280gram but flannel texture

Ode to a Man in Dress Clothes

When I see a man
in a dress shirt, I want
to walk up behind him,
place my hand
between his shoulders,
to rest it there
for a moment. I think
about his socks, how
he chose one pair
that morning and the rest
are still at home
in a drawer.
And his shoes -
god those shoes, they break me,
especially when they're polished, what
does he do to make them shine
like that, yes, all it takes
is a pair of shiny black shoes and such
a wave of tenderness
collapses over me that I see
his ties, at rest
on their little carousel, imagine
that he held them up
in the mirror
at the department store,
unsure

So that's who's been stalking me and putting their hands on my shoulders!

Very nice writing, by the way. Thank you for posting it.

Stylish words. Compliments.

If y'all want to read some buffoonery read the "Visit to P/NP Frienze" thread.

 

Lotta morons. Several insights (Fuuma, FOK and Umbel).

I do have some trousers made with Minnis flannel at around 14-15 oz. I saved those for the coldest winter days or when I travel overseas.

What do we all think of Prince Williams Aussie get up? 

 

- Well fitted blazer

- White OCBD

- Stonewash jeans (or potentially light blue chinos)

- Brown suede chukkas

 

 

I'll get raged at for saying this but its a very 'aussie' look. 

post #48551 of 53794

I don't like that color of jean. Indigo or get out.

 

Everything else is sick.

 

But to be honest - I can't take my eyes off of Kate.

So this just happened in my house:

"Oh my God, is someone analysing HIS outfit?! WHAT. A. GIRL! WHAT. A. GIRL!"

"SERIOUSLY, COME ON!"

Then, in "fag hag" voice:

"Seriousllllly, Oh my God, You guyssss .. Did you see what Prince William was wearing last night?!"

So that's what my significant other thinks of this analysis, Oli...

Wouldn't they need to be RM Williams to qualify for the prestigious "aussie look" title?
