    So, some bullets about a plain fold hanky (you are doing much better with them BTW):


    • Almost all of the time, do edges out, like this example.
    • All of the time, fold it a bit sloppy, like this example.
    • Unlike a stuffed hanky or square, show as little as you can...just peek over the pocket. You have too much.
    • The hanky should always sit at an angle to the pocket. While I slope mine downward away from center, don't do as I do. Most of you will look better if you slope it upward away from center.
    • The most patrician plain fold is the single iceberg triangle, but it is very easy to do this wrong. Avoid it.

    My squares usually don't stay in place unfortunately. After a while they seem to fall out of shape, which makes me have to adjust them every couple of hours or so.

    Have you tried the squares from Savile Row's Paul Jheeta?

    This comment appears to be below your usual standards. At the very least I would have expected a Lewinsky joke...

    Well, in this case, I do not joke.

    Have you met Cindy Sherman?

    The last time that I heard this phrase, it was a pretty swell party.

    The limit of my schoolboy Latin has sadly been reached; had to google that one. [​IMG]

    Nice one though.

    Does it get any better than this? Bathroom mirror, leaning against the counter, arm up and crooked, sunlight over my shoulder. Oh yeah, I’m ready for the runway. Well, at least the blue gingham looked good in person. Cheers gents.

    Thanks for the thumbs-ups over the past couple of days. I've been browsing via iPad and iPhone, and I was unable to reciprocate due to a bug.

    If only. With his dosh, I'd have a Vox-like dressing room instead of my puny closet!

    Damn, I guess the iPhone camera quality made the paisleys more sperm-y than usual, because the tie is more textured IRL. Oops!

    Tripod owner/user here as well. :fistbump: The guys on my Benz forum razz me about that stuff mercilessly. I'm just tired of looking at nothing but laundry on the thrift thread. I've been pushing for guys to take shots of themselves in their finds and AF was the first to jump in the pool. I would imagine that he's scouring the hardgoods sections of the thrifts as we speak, in search of a tripod to thrift. I got my lightweight aluminum model for $5.He'll be along with one soon, I expect.

    The jacket looks a little big overall. The body looks to long, the sleeves look too long, and it looks like there is too much fabric at the shoulder blades.



    Overall, the jacket looks a little big. It looks too long in the body and sleeves, and it looks like there is too much fabric at the shoulder blades. Also, you need to press the pants... but I guess you knew that. [​IMG]





    I don't think the structured and roped shoulder is working for you.

    Hey mate

    Looking sharp as always!

    Is it me or is there a promising shift back to simplicity in this here thread; one which allows a focus on the fit / quality of the garments?

    Re-limited rotation: I'm in the same boat, having sold off all my Herringbone and other suits and jackets to allow for more from P Johnson. Currently, I have three P J suits, each with a pair of spare trousers, and am waiting on number four: a blazer suit in navy worsted. I intend to add a solid dark gray suit, a navy pin or chalk stripe suit and some trousers in shades of cream, mustard and tan to the rotation before this year is up. I agree, however, that as long as you have sufficient accessories to play around with, you won't be in strife.
