    [​IMG] What a brave little dooby. Baby-steps is the way forward... The next thing you know, the challenge will be to wear the clothing ensemble from sunup to sundown, and walk a lap around one's building/house.

    I shouldn't take the piss-- but sometimes you just CAN'T resist.

    Clouseau's night time picture for the Cane Challenge was the best picture I have seen on there, an 'action shot'.

    For 2016 I agree completely.

    There were two memorable winners in 2015 - @Butler in a James Bond style shot and @Synthese and the Van Burens in the desert:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/506266/friday-challenge-21st-august-2015-the-black-art-of-the-white-jacket

    In the latter FC, Synthese and the Van Burens between them amassed 97 votes!

    Thanks mate, funny as when we took the picture i was really not sure about it. The 'flare' did a lot i think.

    On another subject - Penny loafer - you finally can't compare the actual Sebago 'classics' (made in Dominican Republic) with the USA made a few years ago. I could compare both 'in the flesh', a big difference in term of construction and leather quality (speaking of the same basic model, not mentioning the 'made in Maine' or other limited editions). Of course the shop where they still have a few of the good old basic ones MiUSA don't have my size left...

    Ok Gilles, when we come to Paris there's one place I want to get a piccie taken :)

    I include this album sleeve from 1966 simply because a couple of things caught my eye. Firstly Milt Jackson (5th from left) wears a 3-button suit, for which he has done up the top two buttons. Please ignore the fact that his strides seem to have caught a gust of wind. He also wears a puff-style hanky in his top pocket. By contrast, John Lewis (2nd from right) appears to be wearing an ivy-league style jacket, with a rolled-over lapel, over his weskit.

    [​IMG]

    I actually had the honour of meeting and shaking hands with John Lewis.

    Although I think I would rather have a coffee in whatever was Samuel Beckett's favourite cafe.

    Finally managed to get a pair of these. I like them a lot. Maybe a little baggy around the groin area but nicely fitted on the leg and a decent rise. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I also picked up a pair of Brooks Brothers Milano chinos. Slim fit, medium rise. Lovely.

    Yeah, you wait forever for a waiter to come, and he never does. You go back the next day, and it's the same thing all over again! :D

    Well, Wednesday is charity shop day, and today I picked up a nice pair of onyx cufflinks. Pic below.

    It was party time for volunteers in the processing room, and I brought in my iPad with its 100% soul playlist. One of my fellow-volunteers (my age, has a tattoo of an octopus on her left arm) came in wearing flat shoes, baggy strides, and a tank top! Bless her heart! :D

    Although @Rais does not purport to wear the Look as we know it he is very very cool IMO - and so is his sister.

    Yes, there is a sort of clean, unobstructed modernism there

    Lots of sales on at the moment, 2 worth loking at could be Herring Shoes and Sunspel,lots of real reductions at Sunspel if they have your size or you are colour blind.

    My latest buy is a Gitman for J,Crew long sleeve BD shirt in an odd blue colour,I have always fancied a Gitman but they are pricey,I think that you get what you pay for though the cotton seems good quality and its made in USA and seems well constructed,I came across it by accident on e bay new in packet,mine for £33 including postage !
