Ha! Yes, the sportswear and now street wear craze is a bit much. What do you do here?
I've worn button down shirts with suits for over fifty years.
I really like the blue hounds tooth SC. I've tried on a Sammuelsohn blue hounds tooth more than once and will probably own one eventually. I'm a little surprised that Betel seems to be the only one who ever sports one in here...
That is Very gracious, Thank You!
I suppose the short answer is that I'm an artist. Right now I work freelance making a lot of prototypes for the toy industry. I'm also a musician, but I've done mostly stuff for film and TV recently, and haven't played live in a while. Plus several other hats that I wear from time to time. Yourself?
That's awesome! Do you work with any local shops/businesses? I work in the natural food industry, mainly dealing with export sales.
Question for you; since you live in Portland and are a very well dressed gentleman, where do you shop (if locally)?
Thank you, next time I try to show some more
Thanks, Paul Rosen Heritage.

@Braddock, I was there, too! What are the odds!
Did somebody say pink and green?
Great page of fits.
All these great fits. I feel like giving up.
It's been a minute - largely due to the fact that its been a minute since I've worn anything resembling proper tailoring. That said, I'm (semi) respectable today because I'm headed to Bloomingdales NYC's tailored clothing event tonight at their 59th St. store from 6:30-8:30. If you're in the area and would like to chat please stop by and say hi.

The question is: will I be better dressed than the faculty candidate I interview today?
Follow-up: Should his hiring depend upon the result?
