    I love the opulence of that fur coat. Try getting away with that now.
    I was in Daffy's the other night and saw what I believe was a classic pimp. This guy was at the checkout, buying stacks and stacks of chachkes. An elderly black gentleman (about 70, I'd say), wearing a fedora with a large feather, which extended several inches above his hat's crown; a sweeping, over-sized and outlandish mink that swept the floor and hung off his shoulders; tinted glasses; large rings on every finger; and, of course, the classic fingernails. Everyone was looking, but some smartass kid started making dumb jokes, causing the guy to turn around, look over his large shades, and squeal, in the strangest accent and voice I've ever heard, "now that's quite enough out of you, young man!" He made quite an impression. BTW, this is a great thread!

    It's a different world isn't it. If I go there, I may not come back. [​IMG] Perfect for a man of leisure.

    To me, this is a timeless, elegant look. I like how it could almost be considered dressy sportswear today. I hope my future jackets and pants will hold up as timelessly as this example.

    This has a low gorge and wide, relaxed shoulder similar to Armani in the late 80's when his star was really rising.

    You can easily identify the era by the cut of the pants (rather wide).

    And, the belted back....although I have modern SCs and suit jackets with a belted back as well.
