    I love corduroy, but I think I’d prefer this with a less formal collar and a woolier tie.

    Personal preference. YMMV.

    Cheers,

    You wish.

    Incidentally, I was told that Fraulein is somewhat offensive to some women. Frau is supposedly safer. [​IMG]

    What´s the difference between "You are one brave man" and "You are a brave man"

    Edit: And it´s no problem that I have big balls.

    There is no significant difference. "You are ONE brave man" can sometimes be a little more familiar or humorous.

    Just the color of that suit alone is a bold choice. The fact that it's cordoroy, even more so.

    How often do you see someone wearing a cord suit in Murica...or anywhere for that matter? Not too often for me. I get where Noodles is coming from.....but I do like Don's suit.

    Honestly? How often do you see someone in America wearing any of the stuff we wear? I'm not saying he I don't understand where he's coming from, I just don't think it's a terribly avante grade choice. It's a great looking choice though.

    I have never in my life heard anyone say "Fräulein" seriously. Maybe 50 years ago people did, but not anymore.

    Suits and odd jacket/trousers....all the time. They may not fit and they usually (99%) aren't something I would buy, but they are out there. I can count on two fingers how many times I've seen someone walking around in a cord suit....
