    It's a sheep, not a pig.

    my old boss, who was a bit plus sized, heard me complaining about the way brooks brothers stuff (didn't) fit me. He turns to me, deadpan and monotone, and says "You'll appreciate BB when you hit 45 or 250, ever notice that their logo looks more like a pig than a ram? That's intentional."

    BTW they're opening up a BB in Princeton next to Hamilton Jewelers (where Lahiere's used to be). Thought you might care if only so you can go there and moon them.

    That restaurant was good, it's a shame they got forced out by the new owners.

    I have a question:

    I know that a pocket square should not match the tie and agree it looks horrible. However, when picking a pocket square, it's recommended to pick a complimentary color. Does that mean a complimentary color to the shirt or tie? Or can it be done with either or?

    Some would argue it should match the tie, but I prefer doing a contrasting color.

    ^ I've actually heard that it should match the shirt, not the tie, if it's going to match anything at all. I also think this looks best. But hey - what do I know? Just my two cents.

    Not many on here would argue that.
    It should complement both. It should not compliment either. Squares, like children, should be seen and not heard. :devil:

    I recently acquired a dark brown Harris Tweed Jacket in a herringbone pattern. I want to throw some elbow patches on it but I'm having trouble deciding what color to get and there doesn't seem to be many options. Should I put dark brown elbow patches or use beige for more contrast? I can't seem to find any medium brown elbow patches online.

    picture would help. Most of the chocolate brown tweeds I've seen tend to have reddish patches fwiw.

    Thanks. I haven't seen any reddish patches during my search. Only really glaring bright red. Do you know any place online to buy them?

    I added a picture of the jacket to the original post.

    For anyone that drives with a clutch. Do you remove your leather footwear while driving to stop extra creasing on your left shoe?

    i wouldn't do premade patches, it doesn't only widen your colour options.
