    They could if they spent more time on internet forums instead of wasting away in movie sets and A-List clubs

    It's his party and he'll cry if he wants to...on a similar note I am considering trying out black cordovan Vass monks with my upcoming tux as I haven't been able to find a pair of proper ones yet that fit well.

    Yeah, they don't know what fame is until their face is made into a StyFo smiley.


    I will always be a dreamer, my friend, and a bringer of delight to the world.

    Agree on Rolex or Omega but must take issue with IWC. In the broad context the introductory level JLC is nicer than the introductory level IWC, though the top IWCs are nicer than the top JLCs.

    All true, but you've missed what it does for their chests, shoulders, and face. A 4x1 has more effects than just the torso-lengthening effect. As on this tall man:

    [​IMG]

    That looks better overall than Hanks's 6x2 shawl, even though Hanks's coat fits better, and even though Hanks has a better figure. The reason is that black tie's triangle formed by tie and lapels around the white shirt needs either the length provided by button-one shawl or the angles provided by peak lapels to look its best. This is why button-two shawl or those high-buttoning two-button SB tuxes one sometimes sees don't look great.

    Again, I didn't say there was a problem with Hanks's coat.: it's not sartorially bad. I said that an opportunity for true excellence was missed.

    P. S. I also said that one should always choose 4x1 shawl over a button-two shawl, because the first pretty much always looks better.

    This is exactly what the Academy Awards are about, though.

    this is at best arguable, and imo just plain wrong. jlc is miles ahead of iwc in the haute horlogerie department. not even a question.

    I generally disapprove of must human clothing items on dogs but this, although too wide for the actor's face, looked pretty good. For a dog.

    I bet he got more heavy petting than Hanks, Clooney and Pitt, combined.

    Of course, he's not wearing pants and he's a better dancer.
