    Ish. Strict CBD would laugh at DMs, but the right DM on the right last, and preferably in black, does lend itself to formal ensembles imo.

    Don, like the suit, but I think that tie is not matte or textured enough for that suit.

    I am ok with the tie/suit Mr. Chris is wearing.

    Clags, not sold on that combo.

    I think because I have been too busy to forum the way I like, and only get to catch up at night, you all have benefited from extra thumbs. Im just so damn happy to see ya'll I throw out thumbs like nobodies bidness.

    Thanks! I grew it as a goof in 2008 or so, surprised myself, and never looked back.


    Aw, shucks. Thanks. Yeah, well, the coffee didn't get along too well with the trousers a few minutes later. Walking+drinking coffee+white trousers=BAD IDEA. Praise be to Oxi-Clean, they are all right now...

    Very pleased to be to be getting so much nice feedback from so many well-turned-out chaps. I just started a Tumblr in fact, where I riff on outfits from classic films; it's called KINOSTIL.


    Oh, I credited my barber when I thanked you earlier, but I forgot to credit Murray's Original Pomade, THE ONLY MEN'S HAIR PRODUCT WORTH A DAMN. Hold tight—y'all may be hearing a lot of that from me in future. It is something of a calling for me, getting white people to use Murray's. That's Murray's, THE ONLY MEN'S HAIR PRODUCT WORTH A DAMN.[​IMG]

    A Daks supporter. Well done. My newest tailor ridiculed me for Daks waists. Seems side buckles are considered "cooler."

    Today's Friday Challenge is to come up with an ensemble inspired by vintage menswear ads. That below is what I was able to find, and to emulate, perhaps.

    Suit - RLPL
    Shirt - BB MTM
    Tie - BB
    PS - BB
    Cufflinks - Penhaligon's
    Vintage watch chain
    Shoes - Stefano Branchini
    Overcoat - Adolfo
    Scarf - Fortnum & Mason
    Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center

    Your tailor is the one who is ridiculous. My favourite trousers have a Daks waist too: practical and stylish, IMO.

    Agreed. I think it's just the way parallel histories exist in different regions. Anyone remotely familiar with British tailoring knows the Daks waist, but in other parts of the world, I guess it is considered super unusual.

    It could also be that the pants in question were a casual pair of heavy corduroy pants, and I sort of agree that the Daks waistband on those came out super chunky and kind of dowdy looking...

    Who made the suit? It has a pleasant fullness. The moustache must go.
