    The Official-ish DC Thread

    Maybe I don't understand what money laundering is, but how can this be money laundering? Isn't money laundering when you make up some way that you earned money? If I remember right, the guy was (or at least claimed to be) a surgeon who suddenly began to like shoes, especially Corthay. They were...

    I was once in Leffot in Chicago (RIP) and the guy their said he had a customer order like 20 pairs of mto Corthay shoes in the wrong size. He was worried the guy wouldn't like the shoes, but the guy was completely fine with them.

    Remember Paul Manafort and his 15k ostrich jacket? People like that. And people much richer than that.

    Don't disagree, but the OP seemed interested in less expensive stuff and the Italian stuff is a bit harder to navigate through because there is such a huge range of stuff. I also find that two ply or four ply works fine for layering. I wear my chirnside under a sport jacket comfortably.

    Yeah. One of the Rota models sold by Michael Jondral is a bit wider in the leg than most of Rota's stuff. So I tried sizing up, hoping that would work. They fit and I wear them, but they are tight in the thigh.

    If you are like me and have larger legs, I find that sizing up and then getting the waist taken in is normally the way to go.

    I only have pants from them, but I like them a good deal. They fit me better than the Anglo-Italian ones do. A bit roomier throughout and cleaner lines. The fabrics are nice, but the make isn't quite as good. Good enough for me though, especially at half the price.

    With cashmere, it is often said that it's only really worth it to get the good stuff. The good stuff is costly, but it is more durable. William Lockie makes some of the best; I have their chirnside model from Ben Silver and it is a very sturdy sweater. You can get their stuff from Ben Silver...

    I'm just a Marylander. That's all I really meant, though I do agree that there is more to do on the Maryland side. You have the canal. There's that cool part where you can walk across an offshoot of the falls. Plus trails. It also shouldn't be crowded if you don't go on a weekend or holiday. On...

    Looks very good. Where did you get it from?

    Belted balmacaans look good from the front, not so much from the side or back. If you aren't wearing a jacket underneath, they aren't as bad.

    What is the deal with is Kirby Allison’s business model?

    I've never really understood why people care about reviewers getting things at cheaper prices. If anything, I'd be more concerned about a reviewer paying full price. I think the more people invest in something, the more they try to convince themselves that they like it. There's this idea that...

    This is not meant as a character endorsement, and he doesn't dress this well today, but I saw this the other week and it made me pause for a sec.

    I doubt that's RTW. Biden is 6'. Unless he found a semi-long, RTW just wouldn't have the right length. It's not like he doesn't care about clothes. He has been known to wear pocket squares. He also has been seen wearing a tweed jacket with the lapels popped up with a turtleneck and tassel...
