    We're all missing the requisite Iammatt components to pull this off. Iammatt and every other forum member wears patch pocket tweed jackets and two-inch cuffs.

    No blue chambray shirts and no patterned linen squares = auto-fail.


    But you could substitute Black Fleece OCBDs.

    Do you have any idea how impossible emulating MattSR is for me?? Not that I was planning to but still...

    Ha, that's true; you're entirely screwed. But, do you really want a Rubinacci tie in the first place? I can't imagine it making sense with any of your outfits.

    Are you trying to explain and rationalize that, after all, you're NOT emulating iammatt since your pocket square and shirt steez is so distinctive? Smart tangent - but we're not that easily fooled

    I have a kiton jacket in a really obnoxious blue color, but does matt wear 3 patch pockets or only 2? I don't want to waste my time

    matt gets his inside pockets and pen pocket as patches too. He wears patch tighty whities - can get a little messy but worth it

    Sometimes I say what I think without having an underlying self-promoting agenda. Anyway, my shirts aren't that different from his, but my shirts aren't that different from most guys' on the forum. Who the heck doesn't wear blue shirts? Or OCBDs?

    I think the main difference is that he dresses more blended and I dress more contrasty. Also, he has way more cool stuff to play around with.

    I understand that, but since you both pluck your balls, what I'm saying is that you are both essentially indistinguishable.

    Proper English is "way cooler". Also, it's not appropriate to refer to wives as "stuff".

    If by that you mean psychotic analists, yes.

    Do you ever talk in earnest about anything that doesn't have to do with watches?
