    As a charter member of the Buttoning Points Are Too Damn High party, I am liking the slow, steady descent back to more flattering button stances that I see on display with most of the coats and suits in these pics (well, LBM and some of the others notwithstanding). Few silhouettes are flattered by buttoning points a half-foot above the navel, which is about where they've been creeping up to in recent years. I attribute the issue to Thom Browne's influence quite awhile back -- an influence that took hold for quite awhile longer than it should have, and whose legacy still remains in the two-sizes-too-small look that remains au courant.

    A.J.V., thanks for the pics.

    Fok, very nice blue gloves.

    I had Paddington Bear in mind the whole time. My wife wears these hats and I call her my little Paddington Bear when she does.

    Neat link. Thanks. I particularly liked this page:

    I want to know if those are shorts Wooster is wearing.


    Is that a Glen Urquhart? I would have said it was a giant Russell plaid.


    No worries stitcheroo, at that point you'll be able to put together your own un-pitti in the same vein as the Bil conference (which is an un-conference that runs concurrently with and near to the Ted conference).

    Just went through 15 odd pages of this thread. Beards are clearly in.

    The 90s were a bad time for those of us who liked to look good and not shave.

    Granted, I don't think I started shaving until 1999, and I probably didn't really need to shave regularly until 2003.

    I've seen him around, although we've never met..He looks amazing..great taste and genuine style. One could learn a lot from him, no doubt.

    I never thought I'd say this , sounding like some fashionista twit..

    But the craftsmanship and quality of here is just amazing from a photo alone..

    ..wonder who made it?

    These look like unblocked hats to me. They should be returned to Bilbo Baggins as soon as possible.

    I will join the minority dissent on the Nick Wooster pic. The jacket has a very boxy, Thom Brownesian silhouette that does Wooster's body no favors. He looks short and squat.

    Thom Browne is way too New York for a Texas hillbilly to understand

    Amazing photos. My Wooster complaint is the hair...when is the Hitler youth going to finally disappear?

    Cheers! Looking forward to those interviews of Liverano and Isaia.

    Tombolini, Isaia, Drake's, Boglioli and Belvest (+Fedeli) were maybe personal favorite collections..

    And awesome looking gloves!

    And then some pics from Carmina.

    It's too short with creates most of the boxy effect.

    But the jacket actually has a nice shape, otherwise.

    Hatred is a strong word. More like distaste. I don't mind the guy, and I think he's done some very interesting things. It's also impossible to deny that he's perhaps the most influential menswear designer of this decade. The ideas he brought to the table are not only still in use, but in fact have become the de facto standard.

    I just don't love his cut. I think it works on very few people.
