    Will you get bespoke pants that fly at full mast?

    The ship seems appropriate. After all, while showing it off he's taken the captain's pose.

    At my age full mast doesn't happen as frequently as it did when younger.

    Fortunately only when he turned away after he greeted me [​IMG] .
    I'd do this with a 3 piece suit when I'm 115% sure that I wont remove the jacket btw.

    I have heard he's a really nice chap so maybe this makes what he wears not so important.

    He looks very serious in those photos though, if I was wearing clothes like that I would have a much better sense of humor about it. I mean that sincerely, because surely those clothes are meant to display whimsy and a sense of humor?

    I think it'd look pretty amazing if it was lining a jacket.

    oh yeah. may be pretty good as a vest back as well if it was just clouds. I think Luca would really like Westwood.

    It is tie silk though, not actual lining (the lining's on his waistcoat isnt actual lining fabric as well), it was made by Sciamt for Dolcepunta as a "gag". [​IMG]

    I quite like the concept. I'm also pleased that he is willing to play with tradition, innovative spirit is the only thing that will keep fine tailoring going. Obviously this is a "show" piece, but all car manufactures create "concepts" so why should he be prevented from experimentation as well? Its not like he's bringing this out as RTW and saying that the masses will love it.

    He's a guy, playing around in his workshop, because .. why not?

    Luca totally has fun dressing in LH cloting it just doesn't come through in the photos. I've never met a moor down to earth person.

    I have met him twice and he was very nice ...

    Not peacockish at all.

    Photographs give one a peek into the life of another ... but to know personality requires meeting.
