Brown : Farmer :: These shirts :                        
Not, Brown : Farmer but, brown = for farmer. You need to have the ernest grammatical touch.

The last Etro catalog we received has a few pants that look similar to the image you posted.  Did you get it?  The models slide down onto the runway.  Some look a little scared.
The lastest 'creations' of Kean as evidenced in the new collection have their inspiration from the tribes of new Guinea, and to some extent, the Native Americans. So, it is not as "stripy" as usual.

Etro is on it's way out. It looks really good on older guys, 50+; particularly if they have grey hair. It looks a bit done on younger dudes, however I still wear my shirts.   This season they are offering a GREAT peaked lapel, SB suit in prince of whales check linen, and a nice plain tan linen suit.
Mike, what do you mean by Etro being on the way out? Most of the people here in Europe who wear Etro are not 50+, and in my opinion, it would look totally ridiculous on an older 'dude'. Maybe this is strictly an American phenomenon?

84 of the catalog, shows a middle-aged man, "plump", wearing a prototype suit, brown with vertical orange (or red?) and yellow stripes, cool red and black pointed toe shoes. I can't make up my mind if it works or not. He also wears a big happy smile. Overall, I also very much like Etro, although some items are a little too out there for me. I appreciate those simply as art. However, I did observe many things I would like to see my husband try on. The women's fashion seems a lot less daring. As for the patchwork pants, even though I was joking, they look in the same branch as items 99, 05, 22...

So, what dog did they decide is the most Trad?
I didn't read the thread very closely, but I think someone put forth the idea that the Golden Retriever was the most American Trad, since they are so popular (perhaps this person was kidding, but since AA had a serious thread about American Trad glasses, I wasn't sure). I believe the next poster said something to the effect that Golden Retrievers are probably really popular because they're extremely good natured dogs. The thread pretty much died after that, I think. It made me want to add a post to the thread saying that I thought the most American Trad dog was the German Shepard or the Irish Setter (English Bulldog?), just to see whether I'd get any sort of reaction... Best regards, Jeff

I think it was the same guy in the last (fall/winter) catalogue...

The stores in my town which carry Etro have a total of 1 suit. And it's the most conservative pattern of the season. So that's not worth it unless I was a slave to the label type. Give me a well-made white shirt any day. Give me six of them---Kabbazz?

Speaking of Etro, I think Emilio Pucci shirts are another option. Although fewer people would wear them it seems.

I wonder what the men's shirts look like, the official website only show the women's clothing. Jon.

What? I rather like a few of those.
I am with you on that, as a matter a fact, I think I own at least 2 styles similar from Polo.

And you are admitting to this why?

The shirts are in the classic Etro pattern but cut in a traditional style.

Do you have a picture? Jon.
