    Thanks, a lot of my jackets are like this - I'm of a strange shape. If my jacket is the right length in regards to my waist it's way bellow my hands...if that makes sense. With my arms by my side the bottom of the jacket is about 3 inches longer than where the tips of my fingers are. Two tailors have noticed this, my Purdey jacket is a good middle match.

    Re the cotton trousers- I was going to a lengthy show at the Albert Hall do wanted cool clothes! Good show too.

    I quite like fun socks haha.

    A hat should as a rule not be worn indoors, at least not in polite society anyway.

    Well, where my grandparents left off the military stepped in. Thanks to that I am unable to wear a hat indoors without sweating profusely and looking around the room for stripes.

    Maybe its just me but I don´t feel wearing caps indoors as bad as an actual hat, but all at the dinner Table are a no no.

    :lol:

    Agreed that hats should not be worn indoors.

    If the pic is where I think it is (Buttermilk Channel), it's a pretty casual restaurant. I still think people shouldn't wear their hats indoors, but it's hardly a coat and tie kinda place. It's also in brownstone Brooklyn, land of the Man-Boys (and I say this as someone who lives in brownstone Brooklyn... It's very unfortunate to see a 40 year old man dressed like a child, but that's the de facto uniform here).

    I will lament the decline of places requiring a coat and tie though. There are very few of them left, but I do appreciate them even more for it.

    On this MLK / Inauguration Day, the wind chill is near zero. Perfect LL Bean Norwegian day.

    Like the top half, jeans are a little too evenly faded for my tastes.


    Happy MLK day all. Since the green cord got little love on its first time out, we try again.

    Oh, the jeans are just a beat up old pair for doing chores before and after watching the inauguration.

    Really like your coat, today.

    Yes, I have a talent for strange facial expressions and yes, I have a dropped right shoulder unaccounted for in this suit.

    This is really excellent. The socks and shoes take it to the next level.

    I disagree...if one has made an effort to look nice, and adhere to common etiquette, manors in fact - I find it very rude/lazy if others don't. I make an effort to leave the room to use the phone, I find it rude when others don't. I find it rude when people can't be bothered to take a hat off...that's all it is - laziness! It's just manors,
