    New here. Hi.

    [​IMG]


    The snarkers are wrong about your pocket handkerchief. The particular effect you achieve here has an element of historical referentiality that is quite fetching. If you look at the great 1950 film Father of the Bride and observe Don Taylor as Elizabeth Taylor's impeccable young fiance, you will see that his cotton handkerchiefs explode out of his jacket breast pocket and ride up very high as yours does here. Another example of a character who favors an "exploding" 'chief is Robert Hardy's Siegfried Farnon in the British television series All Creatures Great and Small. Since his handkerchiefs are mainly silk, they tend to flop over rather than ride up. But the look is equally insouciant.

    Well done, I say!

    This is doing emotional things to me. Absolutely wonderful and that shirt colour is playing superbly with both man & clothes. [​IMG]

    The king of the high, long pocket square was also king of the Delta blues.

    That's a delightful picture. Thanks for sharing it!

    I want that shirt.

    The shirt is a Band of Outsiders, and the wallet is a 1950s Asprey crocodile with solid gold edging.

    And indeed, the bag is a Want Les Essentials de la Vie De Gaulle.

    Other good looks from world of motion pictures include:

    - The Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz.

    - Gerald O'Hara, Scarlett's irrepressible but later demented father from Gone with the Wind.

    - Genjurō, the undefeatable protagonist of Mizoguchi's masterwork of Japanese cinema.

    - E. T., whose insouciant (note homage to your post) nudity in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial moved us all during it's all too brief single run in the cinemas in the early 1980s. (Aside: if you have not seen this movie, seek out a VHS, or if you have a high-end system, a BetaMax. While Terri Garr is not as hot as she was in Young Frankenstein...itself a wealth of sartorial cues...James Cameron's early masterwork presents layer upon layer of subtle, alien-influenced information about handwork.)

    - Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver. Mostly for the haircuts and ingenuity in fabricating custom fitments underneath one's clothes, but also for sheer spirit and refusal to let "the Man" dictate how one should face life.

    The refuge of the snarker is....more snark! Indeed, there is nowhere else for them to go. They burn the bridge back to common discourse behind them.

    EDIT: I like this take by Ted Leonsis:

    The era of Snark is over. It was all tangled up in an era of empty financial success...Snark is for the intellectually lazy...

    Can you name me one business based on snarkiness that has been successful? Can you name me one person that you know that is snarky and rude that is happy? Has great relationships? Has life success? Can you name me one blogger that is relentless in his snideness that is successful with readers and advertisers? How about one anonymous negative message board poster that is self actualized; takes initiative; and is a winner? I know why. It is because snark is so 2004, so pre the new reality....

    Snark is dead. The era of snideness and rudeness is over. I am calling the bottom.


    Wit, on the other hand, is never dead -- but there are not that many Oscar Wildes and P.G. Wodehouses on Internet fora.

    Not bad, J. Well judged colours. Slightly undone by The Waistcoat Issue, but that's modernity for you
