    In most parts of California, everything is versatile enough to wear year round. I can wear flannel suits in summer and fresco in winter and be perfectly fine. I still try to somewhat stick to seasonal style, but I don't worry about it as much because well, we don't have seasons.

    Thanks! I was just looking at those. That's a great place to start. I wish there were more patterns in Thai silk and linen. Most of my S/S jackets are solid … Hopsack, wool-linen-silk and linen, and most of my shirts are solid. I guess I could mix it up with some striped or plaid summer shirts. I think my biggest crutch is wearing too many solids. Most of my F/W jackets are patterned, but all but a few of my ties are solid grenadine or knit.


    Agreed. I like to pretend there are seasons, even though the weather doesn't change that much. I enjoy putting things away and bringing them out every year … even though it's not necessary. Fortunately/unfortunately, where I work there are more really hot 90° – 115° days than mild or cool days. I like 72° and breezy … I'm fragile :)

    I have them 1 year but the abusive behaviour never stopped. After asking myself if I wanted a happier future, I punted them out of my life for failure to respect me as a man and my wife as a person.

    They had the audacity to call my father inlaw to complain about his daughter. Theyve crossed the line time and time again. I am finished. I will focus more on my suits...I means my wife's happiness.

    Clag is very lucky.

    Nothing wrong with lots of solids. Look to the pattern ties (shepherd's check, plaids) and Macclesfield prints. Grenadine stripes and pindots mix it up too. But I could be happy with the right solid ties from Hober (I think I have 12 solids in Grenadines, Diamond Weave, from them)

    If he didn't have baby feet, I would send him black and brown. Bummer.

    So he's gotten two offers (he messaged me as thanks for linking him).

    Just wanted to comment that this thread really brings out the best in people, really attracts the best people, or both.

    My grandmother used to call them "aristocratic feet," thank you very much.

    Awesome. Hope it all works out for the guy. Lots of generous and awesome people on this forum.



    That just makes no dang sense.

    Small feet are useful in a ballroom, I suppose. Or something like that.
