    I'm not on board with parodying GC's language ability, but I understand T4 and C&A doing so. They introduced GC to this forum and thus feel somewhat responsible and therefore perhaps a bit betrayed by GC's less than exemplary handling of the vintage issue. Plus neither is a native speaker himself.

    What many people do not seem to understand - nobody is parodying GC's language ability... what is being parodied is the fact that he keeps on repeating the same stupid phrases over and over and over and over.

    Fair enough, but maybe you should also look at your own post


    As mentioned here I'm not a native speaker, and I'm definitely not accustomed with Australian expressions, but last time I heard someone call someone else a dick it was certainly not a situation that I would describe as courteous and respectful.

    The bottom one would go exceptionally well with a grey flannel suit or navy flannel blazer.

    Yes absolutely. I already have this one and it's a favourite of mine for fall/winter.

    Again, that's probably because English isn't his first language.

    In a somewhat related note, the phrase "years on its shoulders", has also been used in a recent write up by NMWA. SF inception at work :D

    He is writing in his native language and uses google translate - so your argument does not count, sorry.

    Love the brown blue stripe. Do you get bespoke, or standard configuration?
