    not owning a car is cooler than owning a Fiat Multipla or a Chrysler PT Cruiser

    A friend of mine's father is the CFO at a major company. He bought my friend a "sparkling" yellow PT Cruiser for his first car. Guy's got a good sense of humor.

    Either that, or your friend's father thinks that your friend would do well as the driver of an old-fashioned Checker Cab. Tell me, were there rates painted on the passenger door?

    back in high school a friend of mine complained that she didn't get to choose the leather interior in her brand new bmw 3series cabriolet... meanwhile I worked night shift at the gas station and had a summer job assembling pneumatic & electrical automation components at a production line to be able to afford and insure a shitty car with cigarette burns in the upholstery. I would have killed for a pink PT cruiser

    Silk and line suit 50/50 blend by Dormeuil. I am loving this cloth, been wearing it since 7.00 A.M and its keeping its shape much better than regular linen or cotton. Tie is valentino, shoes Cleverley, pocket square Charvet suit and shirt by me.

    How warm does it wear? I've always wondered why a warm fabric like silk is mixed with linen so often, seems a bit counterproductive. The amazing drape on your suit might have something to do with it, though. Holland & Sherry seersuckers and pincords from the cotton classics book have a rather significant amount of poly in them, perhaps for the same reason.

    Its just amazing, its only 6.5 oz but feels really strong. I walked from 14th street to 30th and back, cool as a cucumber.

    Is it a solid or a fine stripe? It looks very like the Isaia suit I got hold of recently - same 50/50 linen/cotton blend too. Really lovely.

    Oh, nice - sorry, I missed the silk/linen bit - so apart from the soft blue colour (which is great), it's completely different than mine and much, much nicer, I expect. And you looks great in it. Envious.

    Spoo: you have rocked a few Boglioli jackets recently. Just a coincidence or have you been particularly pleased with Boglioli?
