    Like twirl around on poles?

    Not worth the trouble, Trini. At breakfast when I had just turned 13, a great battle was fought and I managed to secure possession of the Kellog's Signet Ring of Invulnerability, which not even the most derivative of Ralph Lauren poseur can pierce. He's just jealous.

    Anyway, if any of us had lives, we wouldn't be here.

    Looks complicated - does it require a longish scarf

    No, though I tried it first with a long (and wide: double folded) one. Someone posted a picture of the knot on the Dutch styleforum and my gf figured out how it worked. Here goes; hope people don't mind I post it here.


    (Not much light, so the pictures are a bit blurry).

    Step 1. Put the scarf on, like this:

    [​IMG]


    Step 2. Pull the top one of the two ends of the scarf through the loop:

    [​IMG]


    Step 3. Take the other (bottom) end...

    [​IMG]


    Step 4. ... and pull it through under the other end:

    [​IMG]


    Step 5. Put that end back through the loop, under the other end:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Step 6. Ready.

    And the (smaller and narrower) one I posted earlier:

    Lighten uP! Dont you think nit-picking something like the relative level of the pockets in a photo where he he obviously leaning just slightly is a bit ridiculous?

    Nice car coat. Could the SC be waisted slightly or would that spoil the sack aesthetic?


    Loved your red jacket the other day! I have one myself, but in summer weight.

    Thanks for the compliment about the car coat - nothing like a British-made coat! Rodex used to make all the Aquascutum overcoats, but, I'm fairly certain, they went out of business long ago. This one was originally sold through F. R. Tripler - a venerable NY shop.

    Sacks can be waisted or not depending on how I plan on wearing them. Heavy tweeds like the one I wore today are "sack-like" but my lighter material sack jackets - worsted, linen, cotton, seersucker - tend to have more of a waist.

    Those instructions were actually very clear. Thanks!

    Not on this forum. People obsess about minute details all the time - have you been seeing the recent foofing that's going on in [​IMG]'s thread?

    You might want to consider finding something to do with your life besides analyzing the difference in height between bespoke jacket pockets.

    Just a suggestion.


    I thought you were just being funny ... if you really did mean the above, then [​IMG] What bothers me the most is the tone you used in your reply to RJE - simply culling him for not having a life. By that note, none of us here posting/discussing have lives either (except maybe Vox).

    I didn't stagger the ends like I should have (I was in a hurry) so my ends are uneven in length. I like this knot though.

    Maybe I'm alone in thinking i want ppl to STFU when they post stupid comments like "one pocket is lower" about a jacket made by one of the best tailors in the world, worn by someone very well versed in bespoke clothing, who is QUITE obviously leaning just slightly.
