    Brummell Vs. Classical Style

    I would say "Mr. Bunny" is Cogburn's finest moment - so far - on SF.

    The official thrift/discount store bragging thread

    does anyone else find themselves getting picky at the thrift store/goodwill? What AlanC said. I think you sort of go through stages when thrifting. At least I did. At first you buy anything that seems decent. mike I too have noticed I have been throwing back stuff lately: HF pants, a Ferre...

    FS: New Paul Stuart 100% cashmere sportcoat. 43/44/46

    Just a bump to provide some feedback on this exchange. All in all, very good indeed. Paypal took a while but the seller was quite patient, and shipping happened exactly when he said it would. The coat then arrived the next day and was as described, or rather not quiet as described. The seller...

    Cashmere Turtlenecks

    You might want to check the Filene's in Friendship Heights. I seem to recall some nice cashmere turtlenecks by reputable brands in the recent shipment they received from Mario's of Seattle and that Connecticut store I can't recall at the moment. I bought a nice cashmere turtleneck in July at...

    Free parking in NYC

    Keep in mind how much you value your time going and coming from the parking lot (as well as the train fares going and coming). At some point, if the value of your time is high enough, you can lose money by getting cheaper parking. I suspect that in equilibrium for the average user of a parking...

    The official thrift/discount store bragging thread

    A pair of Polo loafers which say inside "Bench made in Maine" ($9.99). Am I right to assume that means Alden made them?

    Why was my thread locked?

    phatty, as stated above, I am a hopeless rule-monger. I love nothing more than telling other people how to dress. So ask me your question, and I will pronounce a rule for you. Keep in mind, phatty, that the poster above is known to engage in secret writing. What he says he does not mean, but...

    Question on Poli Sci.

    If you are really interested in setting yourself up to actually be of some value to a Member, I'd suggest courses in Econ, business, engineering, taxation, and other things that people of my party know nothing about. It says a lot about our current condition that I cannot guess which party he...

    DC visit

    you may want to visit the newly opened CMart. It generally has a lot of Belvest and Canali, and I have spotted Seraphin there as well. I bought a d'Avenza cashmere jacket for under $500 a few months ago. There have been a few queries from time to time about this new CMart store in DC. I went...

    d'Avenza Roma navy sportcoat, pure cashmere, $477, retail $1595 I got this at C Mart in DC. I'll write a separate post about what else they had.

    Parking in DC

    Georgetown University has parking lots and a very light summer school crowd. You might check with them to see if you could park over there.

    The coupon is good until April 24. I can email it to you. Another email from FB says you can get a coupon on the website. www.filenesbasement.com.

    Washington, DC sales

    I went to the FB on Conn. Avenue on Friday. I received via email on Friday morning a 20 percent off coupon. The designer stuff was already 40 percent off, and you could add the 20 percent coupon on top of that, which I didn't realize all that clearly when I set out. Often the stores prevent you...

    Note on Manton's Plan to Destroy SF

    I can't help but feel that my bid to thwart Manton's plan has failed. Yes, but you have revealed yourself to be one of the inner circle, a listerner to the tapes, not a reader of transcripts. Barone's pocket square was peachish. He tends toward solid pocket squares rather much, no?

    Note on Manton's Plan to Destroy SF

    Most of his thoughts on these matters can be found in the audiotapes of his unpublished lectures, which still circulate like contraband among his followers. For Strauss, these were actually transcripts of lectures, circulated as above. Still, I like Walter Berns. I was glad to see him looking...

    Thom & Black Fleece in the WaPo

    In the same article, Robin Givhan takes a swipe at us, i.e. DC men. "The men of Washington are maligned for their attire, not because they refuse to dress in the knife-sharp, adventurous silhouettes of a Hedi Slimane or the colorful playfulness of Paul Smith, but because they don't wear their...
