    Looks like your shoes could use some love. I’d recommend getting rid of that shirt if you can’t fix the curling collar points. Maybe try a good ironing with starch or try collar stays. I think this would look better with a wider tie. I like the look of the suit. They appear to have more shoulder padding than I would prefer. I like the high rise pants and cuff on the pants.

    Crusty has immunity. He has earned it. Anyone else would swiftly receive a double sentence ;)

    If the shade of blue is just “this side” of navy or better still midnight blue, you may just get A pass ...

    The vocative, mon cher: Brute. Given your stated preference for a certain author, you have no excuse!



    Now one interesting difference between anglo/franco worlds is that "tu quoque fili (mi)" is more commonly seen in the latter or rather in the original alleged Greek "καὶ σὺ τέκνον" which is supposed to be more likely given that his childhood language would have been Greek. Despite often thinking in English, I swear in French when cut off so maybe there's something to it.

    I don't always agree with @Alan Bee , but I do when it comes to double monks. Single is fine, especially EG Mercer, but double is just not my thing. Too precious.

    But @upr_crust is of course above such criticism!
