    Steed (Edwin DeBoise) DB bespoke suit in Smith & Co. 11oz flannel (for those of you who care, this is a model with the front cut)

    How many bespoke have you got in your wardrobe?

    It is just incredible...

    Oh, come on now: I think that he genuinely likes the stuff and the company.

    While I've whittled my Oxxfords to an endangered few, I like wearing what I have left.

    Even [​IMG] slums around in his old Oxxford still.

    I don't actually--but it has nothing to do with the quality and everything to do with changed tastes.

    Really? Did you retire them after you got your last batch of jackets?

    Yeah. I only have two, so it's not like I have an entire Oxxford wardrobe that goes unused.

    It sort of reminds me of those British companies that were headed by noblemen--run at massive losses with no business sense.

    Isn't that how all businesses should run?



    BTW, I rather like the oxxford DB posted [​IMG], it's a nice F.U. pattern. Obviously nothing to wear to work, but I'd wear it to a museum fund raiser.

    i actually like that oxxford db glen plaid suit. very bold.

    Also not bad if you're a successful criminal defense or plaintiff's attorney. I also admire the FU-ness of the suit.

    I like that Oxxford DB (and the cloth is very similar to something I just got recently), but that tie is just awful, and even worse in combination with that jacket.
