    Here is a most stylish gentleman, and his pictorial depictions of his attire. Personal Site.

    I like his style. I can imagine dressing like that.

    Some great suits, but he looks like Col. Klink from Hogan's Heroes when he wears those military uniforms.

    This guy is obviously putting his tailor's children though college. Some very nice items though.

    I was looking at his pictures and thinking, this guy must not be married, but then I read part of his blog and apparently he is gay, but I didn't read far enough to see if he has a partner.

    Quite a collection of clothing however and definitely quite a well developed personal style. Perhaps we should invite him to join Style Forum.

    Let me know if we invite him so that I can edit that post in which I called him a tool.

    his clothing is great (most of it) I question the, lets say wisdom, of putting pictures of yourself in old military uniforms on the net.....

    I hadn't seen the uniforms. I think he might be gay.

    Agree with Johnnynorman - a complete tool. If he was straight, I can't imagine he has a girlfriend or wife. No sane woman could put up with that. Actually, same goes for any gay guy I know as well (although they seem to have more tolerance for, interesting, foibles.)

    Why is he a tool? Not much of what he's wearing is completely bonkers. He likes clothes from a certain era and of a certain style and so wears them.

    Many of those clothes don't look dramatically different from what we wear today and I suspect that a fair few people on the forum might look to that style of dress for inspiration..

    He says he's gay in one of the entries in his blog - it's in a reference to columns by Andrew Sullivan about the Iraq war and U.S. politics.

    Sorry, I missed the earlier post that. I skimmed the thread.
