    Thats bad ass! if I just didn't read PTO about how you shouldn't have so many ties, then i may have plunged...the "R" really does it for me though....oh I hate you SF.

    Squeezed and creased, but the spalla insellata gets enough haters anyway.

    I think it's pretty obvious, eventhough this one is not finished yet.

    Rob, a lot of the newbs don't know how much flack you took early on with your fits (and lifestyle pics) and you stuck it out, steadily improved and you now have some very nice pieces in your wardrobe. That being said, you seem to be "stuck" in the mud where your current fits seem to always be slightly off. I don't mean the actual fit of the items but the things you put together. For example in today's outfit, those pants and boots make no sense in the context of the outfit (or the blazer/tie make no sense with the pants/boots). Sometimes your ties are off (wearing flannels/tweeds with fancy silk or worsteds with tweedy ties), sometimes the shoes are off, clunky whisky gunboats with a worsted three piece, loud pants with loud jackets etc. Anyway, I only tell you this because I was there in the beginning, I know you have thick skin and don't take this stuff personal and becuase you are one of the few guys here that is actually always looking to improve.

    Appreciate it Ed. And I feel it too. The past little while I just haven't felt it when I put on the garments. I think part of it is the fact that I got rid of all my non-gunboaty shoes, and I'm trying (maybe forcing) the classic American Trad bottom, with a more European Top. I also hear it with the ties, I just hate to feel like I'm wearing a "uniform" which is what it could easily turn into (grey pants, one shoe, loud jacket, navy tie). Every time I go that ultraconservative route thats how I feel, and I guess I just need to get over it. Again, thx for the feedback man.

    The flock has lost a member. Here I am mourning in the lush, unseasonably warm pastures of New England with brother sheep, who is doing a great job upstaging his elder:
