    Funny stuff. The local radio this morning said that in light of this, police have been granted the power to confiscate alcohol at will during the meet. I suspect local plod will be swilling Grande Annee tonight...
    I will correct myself having just heard the item on the radio again. Plod's booze confiscation powers will apply to the Henley Regatta, not Ascot. So they'll be intoxicated near water, rather than near galloping horses. All's well in the land.
    I like that even more. I'll say that a plain fold hanky is not what it deserves, although I agree with the plain hanky concept.
    Thanks. I wasn't feeling the square fold myself to be honest, but three people called me while I was getting ready, so I ended up running late for my 11 o'clock. Was planning on finding a complementary silk (maybe red with navy, or red and cream) and doing a puff/points fold, but defaulted to the linen square under the time pressure. What would you have picked?

    nothing wrong with that fit and I would not get any waist suppression on it. my only suggestion would be for wider lapels on your frame and I think a 3roll2 jacket will have an elongating effect on you.

    I was going to say something similar. The fit looks good as is. No need for any alterations.The color, pattern combo and tie choice are all very nice, too.Â

    If you're open to a different style for future suits, I agree with Ed that a little wider lapel would work well with your build. Beyond that, maybe a softer, rounder shoulder. But that's a matter of preference.


    Wider lapels yes. I'd prefer seeing a slightly lower buttoning point rather than a 3-2 necessarily, though we're both noticing the same truncating effect of the current look.

    Thanks, gents. I agree, particularly about the shoulder.Â

    Simply put, posting here has ceased, at least for the present, to be fun, hence I am in self-imposed exile at That Other Website (though I have always cross-posted between the two sites since starting to post here actively).

    That's unfortunate, Señor Crust. I think your posts help keep this thread from narrowing into self-reflexive boredom.Â

    Some rain today so I wore boots.

    Nice! Quite like that tie.

    Dressing up for an art gallery opening tonight. The Drake tie itself is 1/3 of the suit's costs [​IMG]Â

    How about back-of-the-hand slapping?



    Does Vancouver, BC share the same monarch? They do, right?

    Is it because of her status as a National Treasure?

    I like white, voile or etamine cotton..stuffed like a silk square...for this sort of thing. Like this one. Voile or etamine, specially after use, has a nice, soft, diaphanous effect when you want something plain white but don't want something hard-edge as a plain fold.
    That's a great tip; thank you. [​IMG] Will see if I can find them in the UK.
    I wouldn't even be fired from my kindergarten job for looking at that pic.
    Judging by some of the recent scandals reported about kindergarten/nursery teachers in this country, I suspect your bosses would in fact be mightily relieved that at least you're looking at adult women.

    The one with the red edges you've worn yesterday would have worked, maybe folded in a couple of points. But nothing wrong with the solid because of the windowpane and contrast collar shirt, it's a good choice.

    I rarely use white squares but will employ one to brighten up a particularly dull combination. Never, however, in a square fold.
