    As much as I love my fellow Russians, anyone with Berluti bags, multiple bespoke suits and shirts, a new briefcase for each day of the week, etc etc is most definitely not middle class, by any standard in any country.

    In short, Vitya ne pizdi. ;-)

    Such a strong words :D
    But I agree with you about middle class definition :) Especially for Russia, Ukraine etc.

    One of your better looks, but it still bothers me to see a tie without a sport coat/blazer/suit. I'm not a fan of the look. To me it screams software engineer.

    Is there a specific reason why you're wearing ties? Work?

    Judging from your style/pics, I think a pair of Paul Smith or Oliver Peoples Frames would be perfect.

    (As an FYI, there's no need to spend top dollar on frames( i've sold high end- Versace & Blinde) as fit is more important than anything. -- Many frames are made with the same materials(usually zyl acetate) in the same factory whether it be China/Japan/Italy and simply stamped with a particular brand)

    Rich or not, I want to see photos of your closet.



    Tie clip is distracting, no jacket looks weird too. -10 points if this is not your work uniform.

    Why not? A middle class can afford all that. He is saying he is not mega rich but is doing ok. If you have a strong interest for clothes and wanna spend all your extra cash on that rather then watches, cars, trips or whatever. You can go bespoke as well :)

    A few more generations America won't have a middle class anymore either.

    wondered if you might comment a bit on your cottonwork shirts? I've really liked the collars on all the shirts you've photographed over time; what details do you request when ordering from them?
