    I knew that the tie was not your aesthetic, but, considering your preferred style and mine, I came as close as I could to pB severity.

    Such an act would be impossible - something orange would make its way into the picture sooner or later. In the artistic continuum of conflict between "disegno" and "colore", you, pB, are an ardent adherent of the former, and I of the latter - you are Firenze, I am Venezia.

    I have "gauntlets" on one of my bespoke suits that my tailor referred to as turnback (an Italian who speaks only rough English) so I guess I have been using the wrong term (honestly, I just point to an example of a detail I want and say "like that"). The waterfall buttons refers to cuff buttons that are stacked versus just kissing.

    Again, I have to say that is one fantastic suit; what makes it work so well is that the basic elements are spot-on, without the details you already have an awesome suit. The details take it to the next level (especially those cuffs).

    Me too, and I also referred to them as "turnback cuffs". "Gauntlets" to me brings to mind heavy gloves. But it's a nice term, and I shall use it - thanks (as usual) for an education, Butler.

    Yeah, well I just got an apologetic email from PS informing me their stock was insufficient to meet the sale's demand..."We are so sorry...":censored:

    A turnback cuff is, as the name indicates,made by turning a relatively narrow piece of cloth back onto the sleeve. See TPW's Black tie coat:

    The Gauntlet cuff is sewn onto the jacket:

    My condolences. With sales at Paul Stuart, the early vultures get the goods - there isn't all that much left once the sale goes public (even when private, the selection of sale items can be sparse).



    Thank you, boychik - the tie was a favorite of my late husband's, as it happens.

    That explains my confusion. On my example, the actual cuff material is folded back (on half the cuff, from seam to seam) so I suppose it is actually a turnback cuff. It would seem that gauntlets are something quite different (which would explain buttons not being placed on the second layer of material). Now I know what detail to ask for on my next suit.

    That pinstripe suit is pretty nifty, I might add.

    I don't like those trousers with that shade of jacket. Lighter I think would work better.

    i disagree. i think the darker more camel khaki is better.


    too much of a pian to edit it, and my handsomeness needs to be shared. :bigstar:

    never. i assure you.

    Why do you say that?

    Do he and "Patrick Booth" look similar? They both seem to have similar builds and hair. Spoo is probably taller.

    because his values his anonymity greatly.

    they look nothing alike.
