    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think the ritz charlton motto "We are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen" is what a very good hotel distinguishes from a mediocre one. So it´s better to dress like a gentleman and not like a clown.

    +1 - if this was meant as a joke, it was a poor one. If it wasn't meant as a joke, then it's even worse.

    you mad bro? chills it was a joke

    EDIT: and I'm going to nip this in the bud right here.

    apparently, I wandered into the no-fun zone all of a sudden here...

    On the previous page there were speculations about DC being a hitman and an enforcer.
    obviously more noble professions & SF-approved than a theater usher (/sarcasm)

    I don't know how you might have taken it, but this was a mere post on what jobs require a DB suit at night not on how he is dressed, which is very sharp in my opinion.

    In any case, DC if you happen to read this, it was just a "for fun" post and if you are offended I'm sorry

    thanks, ich!


    long story short, i bought the hat from H&M as a gag, with my brother, maybe 4 years ago. we also bought bow ties and donned sun glasses. then we walked around teh mall watching people react to our get ups. iirc we had on super tight shoes, too. fun times.

    that being said, i have no particular affinity for the hat, and i only dig it up from time to time, just for fun.


    i rarely shop B&M these days.

    Oddly enough, I just happened to watch for the first time the other evening, an old movie from 1973 "The Night Porter".

    Very interesting film with a strong plot and incredible performances from Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling. Unfortunately it went terribly flaccid in the third act, becoming almost unbearably dull at times. Which was a shame, because the first and second acts were riveting. The movie is essentially Italian (direction, financing, cast etc all Italian), but set in Vienna and with dialogue in English. There's a Nazi subplot, but it's incidental to the core themes of the movie, which are deeply personal.

    Like that a lot, Claghorn, but the gap between the bottom of the pocket and the bottom of the jacket throws off my sense of zen. Ever think about flapped patch pockets? If you had the top of the flap even with the bottom button, the pocket would be set lower, closing that gap. Also, I like flapped patch pockets...

    The next jacket I have made, I'll have the second button set about a centimeter lower and the pockets lowered accordingly. The jacket has fairly closed quarters, so you generally won't see shirt unless my hands are in my pockets (which admittedly, they are fairly often [​IMG])

    Thats nice Claghorn ^^

    Drakes tie and wool-silk square + BB District check

    Demeter-Halmos Norwegers in Freudenberg calf, Goiserer sewn welt. This small Austro-Hungarian maker is no longer trading, but perhaps the father and son team make for Vass now- shame they closed because their styles were pretty authentic A-H.

    That is very nice, Pliny. How do you feel about wearing what seems to be a paisley madder in summer? Madders are my favourite ties but I think I'd feel a bit unseasonal wearing one here... maybe weather is a bit more autumnal where you live?

    Cheers Diaz, its Winter here in the southern hemi, but still pretty mild. The District Check im wearing it with is originally a tweed design, and the madder's colors go nicely IMO altho this is really a worsted.
    fantastic linen fit the other day BTW

    Thanks, and I didn't know you were in the southern hemisphere... makes a lot more sense now [​IMG]

    If I can finally go bespoke this year (don't know if I will have enough money after two holiday trips) I want my first commission to be a district check like that - shades of tan with a faint light blue overcheck, in either worsted or tweed. Looks very nice. I remember mafoofan wearing something similar.
