    Ok Bruce looks good. I wear light v-necks with shirts and leather jackets, not so much with scoat unless they're tweed or something. We had a real classical italian style (tm) dude who did it well in relatively formal outfit (Montesqieu?).

    I studied Italian extensively in Italy, although it is not so great anymore. I never got the sense that "furbo" was necessarily a compliment. Maybe in certain contexts, but not universally. I wasn't in the deep south at any point (depends what you consider Naples to be) and can't claim to be an expert in the culture. Perhaps you know more than I do, but I've seen people jokingly get called furbo and not love it so much. Tend to agree with dieworkwear, though I don't think you intend anything negative. Italian cultures (the regional cultures being what count) run wide and deep.

    I liked your wearing one with a leather jacket. I just can't seem to wear one without looking like a dork.

    [in before someone makes an obvious joke about why I might look like a dork]

    I like Margiela sweaters with elbow patches in black or grey, they're relatively slim and light but don't look too sleek Italian. I do have some silk-wool (? cotton maybe) Malo or Borrelli sweaters that I'll wear with a velvet jacket or whatever, not sure I don't look like a cunt, seems to be allright and it's comfy.

    Wearing a big SNS herning sweater under this is also quite nice:

    I was looking at a MMM sweatshirt a couple of years ago in Vancouver. Really beautiful material, and feel somewhat regretful I didn't buy it. Have been wanting to check out MMM knitwear more since.

    I used to wear v-necks a lot, from age 5 (school uniform) to 35. But one of my brothers has always hated them, and one time he told me it was because they lack material in the place you need it the most. I laughed at the time. But I don't know if it's because of that idea creeping slowly into my head or simply because I moved to CA, but I haven't worn them now for several years. W/ a sport coat and tie, I think they look a good kind of professorial and I'd probably wear them again if we moved somewhere cold.

    Yea, maybe it's a weather thing. I could see myself wearing them a lot more with sport coats if the climate here got colder.

    Incorrect. It is actually New Jack City...


    Or was it Boyz in the Hood?

    So, what's the word about this re-direct error? I have been having trouble on and off for 2 days now.

    Whatever SF did, it does not play nice with Safari, and Chrome... :fu:

    SF must have changed something, like their hosting or IP address etc. Your ISP would have cached that information and therefore do not recognize the change until they clear their cache. May ISP companies should theoretically clear their cache regularly, but in reality most don't do it often.

    Therefore what you need to do is change your DNS server numbers to that of Google's until your ISP sorts it out on their end (See screenshot, first row 8-8-8-8, second row 8-8-4-4.... I did this and it fixed it)

    hope that this helps!

    @David Reeves, are you still planning to start that thread on padded shoulders? I think it would make for a great thread, FWIW.

    Every time this ad pops up on StyFo, I think it's @emptym

    All ethnically ambiguous looking people look alike

    There are many approaches to the single summit. But as you've observed, it isn't lonely at the top.
