    I often use the following bags:

    Berluti (leather)

    Alfredo Beretta (suede and crocodile)
    Finamore (cordovan)

    Santoni (deer)

    Bally (leather and fur)

    Aquascutum (fabric and leather)

    Aquascutum (fabric and leather)

    Etro (leather)

    Etro (fabric and leather)

    Etro (leather)

    A. G. Spalding & Bros. (leather)

    A. G. Spalding & Bros. (Fabric and leather)

    A. G. Spalding & Bros. (leather)

    Pollini (leather)

    Ralph Lauren (fabric and leather)


    Just a few bags I use quite often.

    I plan to buy a couple bags of Berluti. I like them.



    I wanted to upload a photo, but today a bad speed Internet. But many of these bags can be seen in the photographs that I have fasted before. You can search for them in my message, if it's interesting.

    Alligator lining may sound funny, do not argue, perhaps, but very practical in velvet. In any case - thanks for the comments! [​IMG]

    In Russia there is a saying, "The taste and color - no friends" [​IMG]



    That is the taste preferences of anything at everyone. And what seems to be fine one - the other may seem ugly.
    And that's fine. We are all different - so it is interesting to live and share their experiences. [​IMG]

    The photograph did wash out the yellow a bit more than IRL - and it is ironic for me to be accused of not ENOUGH contrast :nodding:.


    Mr. Butch (sounds better than Mr. Sugar, no?) Appearances can be deceiving, unless by "content" you are implying that I am enjoying a full gullet. :D

    ahhhh yes i understand now no wonder when i quote you, there is all this coding embedded well, i don't think i can get larger sleeves on suit jackets to accommodate the french cuffs just yet as i only have 1 french cuff shirt but perhaps in the future i will look into it some more... more maybe i'll unbutton two buttons on my jacket sleeve instead of just 1

    Thanks for the kind words and thumbs up guys.

    Gnatty and Holdfast killing it today. Gnat - whats the deets on those shoes, Vass?


    This I am having a little hard time wrapping my head around. You say the first picture is too saturated in color, but are you saying then that only subdued ties are to go with navy? Navy is as neutral as black or white for me, and any intensity of any color tie can really go with it.

    Here, check out another picture from the Armoury lightbox and tell me what you think (of virtually the same colors up top, and with a real camera)

    I'd see SB's point better if Spoo's tie was all shiny and not so deliciously woolly.

    Also:

    Can you really do this? Wouldn't people (especially in MC) freak out seeing it buttoned that way?

    I could put everything I own short of a car, motorcycle and house into your bags and you'd still have spares.

    Yes, you can do it. It's an old look, but surprisingly, it's been modeled on recent runway shows. Not that that should influence you.

    Suit looks good, all in all. There are many other "first suit" failures, but this is a nice one. Have fun on your bespoke journey.

    What are some of the other "first suit failures"? If it's something obvious I don't want to make the same mistake on my next two suits. Thanks.
