    More vintage: A suite and a tie from the 40s. A Jaeger-Le Coultre watch from the 60´s I think. And a new Borsalino hat. The cuff links are dated 1930.

    This is a great reference for a shirt and tie sans jacket combo. You have to have a certain kind of attitude to carry the look

    I disagree. Like anywhere, you just have to know where to go . . . .

    As for recommendations, I lived there forever and had very little luck finding anything good down there clothes-wise. There was a little store (creatively called "European Fashions") in Aventura that carried some decent suits, but generally speaking it was the suck. The Ralph Lauren outlet at Sawgrass once had a slew of Purple Label suits for $500 each, but now it's an RL kids store. There are occasionally good things at the outlet stores (Last Call in the Dolphin Mall, por ejemplo). Puig makes nice bespoke guayaberas. Other than that . . . ???

    I'd be interested to hear your recs, since I haven't lived down there in a while (though I'm there frequently, I don't get too much time to explore).

    Better use of a little furry dog, IMHO

    I actually think Mr Claghorn's is better - doesn't look like he's trying so hard. And he's wearing socks

    Very, very appealing look, with or without the dog. Although that looks well-groomed too. I really do like that jacket. Quality speaks.

    So very wrong, but a genuine "LOL", for which I thank you!

    Bloody hell! Now we're into the Premier League. Proper white tie, smoking jacket...pretentious? Maybe. But absolutely correct, beautifully made by the look of it, and a total trump card in the style stakes. My heartfelt respect to you, Sir! Now, must see the tailor about that smoking jacket...fabric's been sitting in my drawer for weeks; time to get on with it!

    Stylish as always. What shoes?



    Not a fan of contrast collars personally. But anyway, retro maybe - I would say "classic". Another very dapper combo - great suit and like the PS too.

    I have this suit, MTM from some awful cheap Chinese operation. I've had it for ages, been adjusted at least two or three times and is still not right. But I can't bring myself to get rid of it, as perversely, the fabric was surprisingly pleasing. Apart from the lesson learned - only deal with a tailor you can physically assault if necessary - it still gives me a strange mix of pleasure on one hand, and frustration on the other. Anyway, good enough for the barbarians I'm dealing with today, and offset by my favourite tie and proper shoes.

    P.S. I do not, of course, condone the physical assault of one's tailor, or anyone else. But a stern expression is sometimes called for.

    Here's a close up picture of the fabric, a classic nailhead pattern in white/black.

    Black cap-toes from Church. I think the model is Consul.
