    In that case, I suppose I'm betraying my Chinese heritage to adopt the mannerisms of the French(?), not the Italians, when it comes to my cuffs.

    Get one of those iammatt BD french cuff shirts, and leave the collar unbuttoned and the cuffs uncuffed.

    Covers all the bases.

    Has anyone here trafficked much in the Harrison Frontier bunch? Appears to be comparable-- or in the same category-- as the Lesser 9-10oz but with more mottled colors.
    Its pretty much the same quality cloth, I think the Harrisons is a bit heavier

    I already have my own style of modified OCBD, remember? My name will be attached to it for the ages.

    What about the buttons on the front? Two or three undone?

    I'm afraid I'm completely in your camp with unbuttoning two.

    It pains me to admit that you are right.

    I'm certain that he's a big fan. His truculent comments are just a smokescreen.

    I would get them embroidered BHO just to put his delirium over the top.

    You needn't concede that he is right. It may be ok for one of you and not the other.

    Well, now that I know there's a market for my creation, it's settled. First thing after work I'm going to go buy a van and start selling my vision to the world.

    I'm feeling very E.G.

    It's weird; I don't see many French cuffs around Naples. But every store sells cufflinks and both Anna and Mariano insist that French cuffs are always elegant and classic. Ultimately, I wonder how much the apparent preference for barrel cuffs is a function of current trends. Anyway, it's not like the vast majority of men in Naples would be considered elegant or well-dressed to begin with.
    Perhaps rather than relying on wandering around the streets of Naples, a more precise or scientific method of social social observation could be employed?

    Are you talking about the "new" 9.5/10 Lesser? It's fantastic...I really love it. If Harrisons have something that good, that is a great set of options to have in that weight.

    What would a scientific method be for determining the well-dressed portion of a city's populace? I guess I could find out what Flusser book sales are like in Naples and work up a matrix that compensates for each Neapolitan's post-2007 AAAC posting frequency . . .

    (I'm just kidding!!!!)

    Are you suggesting that since I am post-Neanderthal, I might have to go to three?
