    True, although I have to confess that I selected brand obsession as my personal folly, and finding a deal as my sport. As a result, my wardrobe is a study in fine fabrics and makes that are beautiful, incoherent and rarely fit. But they were all amazing deals.

    I though socks were grey this morning when putting them on in the dark. I actually really like the dark green with it

    No judgments here? Your tongue must be firmly planted in your cheek, or you've had a surfeit of hallucinogens this morning . . .


    I know the impulse only too well - a need to figure out how to use finely made oddball articles of attire. I've learned after long years of experience that it is usually better to step away from the markdown, unless one is absolutely certain of the rightness of the garment.

    Note to young Mr. Noodle - the thing to which you referred in your thumbs up comment is a collar pin, and I employ a proper collar pin only with shirts constructed to take such, i.e., made with holes in the collar for them. As to why - I find them decorative, and retro details such as this seem to work with my appearance and my generally owlish mien.

    I understand the obsession, but I don't see how anything that doesn't (or can't) fit you can be considered an amazing deal.

    Weeeel, it depends on what enters your calculous in determining if an article is a deal. With my obsession with sartorial makers (along with texture) i tend to weight a discount heavily, more so than fit. This holds true at least at the time of purchase. Once the article is safely in my posession the flaws in my calculous are quickly revealed and I tend to take your view of what's a good deal.

    I love the clothes, the fit and everything... really really nice outfit but I have a quick question, for Braddock or anyone else who knows the answer. Why is it a fashion trend now to show both ends of the ties...??? Does it have any meaning? Or it is just because some trendsetter started to wear ties like that and it cought on and now a lot of people do it??
    I mean no harm with my question, it is an honest doubt I have.
    Thanks in advance to whoever answers me.

    It's just personal/individual style.

    Some people leave a button or 2 unbuttoned on jacket sleeves.
    Some people always wear braces.
    Some people always wear white shirts.
    Some people always wear bow-ties.
    Etc.
