    Ready for spring. Tired of this snow and boots business. I'm not sold on this navy corduroy square. I thought about wearing burgundy or brown, but they both seemed too matchy.

    She has a thing for buying her grandchildren shoes. She grew slightly wealthy (enough to comfortably retire...nothing extravagant) in late middle age as a result of a lot of hard work, saving, and investment. But she grew up really poor and only was able to afford one pair of shoes every two or three years as a child. She's suffered joint problems in her feet starting in her 20s as a direct result. Because of this, she has a thing for buying shoes for her grandchildren.

    Yes, it can be a little like that. But one gets used to it quickly.

    Jacket is Canali Exclusive, fabric is wool/cashmere and almost certainly Loro Piana.

    Thanks. The shirt is RLP and has been roundly (and correctly) criticised for its rather stingy lapels. They look ok in this photo though I guess.

    LOL

    3 and 4 are great.

    Wonderful, Pliny. Is that Kent's soft shoulder?

    @Pliny I'm echoing the sentiments of the gentlemen above. :)

    Who makes the coat? The cloth looks very relaxed.

    thanks, ..'normal'. It's taken me quite a few jackets, but normal shoulder considerably sloped seems to work best for me.

    Nice. I didn't have much luck my first try. Might have to give it another go.


    I thought it looked good too.

    Nice textures, but is that a suit or SC?

    I don't think so. Textures of jacket and trousers look decidedly different in the close up pic.
