How Do You Store Pantherella? In The Saddle...

Forgive me for what is obviously a pedantic nit-pick from a non-poster, but for someone so into his (and other people's) shoes I'm surprised you tie yours with the bow lined up like that. To me, it looks more elegant and neater if the bow is perpendicular to the line of the foot. No offense, I trust?

Loving this grey shirt, hating how I was out of focus because my remote didn’t want to cooperate.

Hi gents, first post on this thread, but been following for a while.

I recently bought 5 ties from Shibumi. They're sensational, and I wanted to share. So here goes:

Thank you, Mr. Shubumi, Inc..
They might show better if they weren't set inside the frame of a washed out suit backed by a washed out shirt.

Have you considered that since a foot moves up and down a lot, a wispy little bow might get jarred askew? Awfully inelegant granted, but O the price we pay when we decide to move about a bit.

A little perhaps, but I dont think that's what's happening here. There's a way to tie the bow so that it tends to stay perpendicular. The difference between a granny and a reef knot. As I said, a rather pedantic nit-pick. ;)

A special weekend edition for me, as I am attending the Metropolitan Opera this afternoon, and thus have the excuse to dress for the occasion, though it is a matinee. I've opted for one of my more favorite suits, a pair of cufflinks I bought on sale several years ago, and haven't worn in ages, and a cap rather than a proper hat, so as to ease any coat check issues at the Met.

Suit - New & Lingwood
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Tie - YSL
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis
Braces - Albert Thurston via Paul Stuart
Pocket square - Robert Talbott
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand
Overcoat - Brooks Brothers
Scarf - Johnstons of Elgin
Cap - Paul Stuart

Was driving past the Peterless Pan Fountain in Beverly Gardens Park in Beverly Hills today and realized hadn't taken a picture with it for five years so stopped and took a picture with it.

It's not much of a fountain anymore. It seems like the city's entire fountain water budget goes to the Electric Fountain, leaving very little water for the other fountains.

When I was a little kid there was enough water for all the fountains. (No, did not celebrate Leap Day by leaping into the fountain.)

Brooks Brothers corduroy jacket I got when Nixon was President, L L Bean (made in USA) brown and green on white Tattersall OCBD shirt with a pocket flap (just like J. Press), Rugby Ralph Lauren pocket square, Polo Ralph Lauren unlined pseudo BB#1 stripe tie, Vineyard Vines belt, Orvis moleskin trousers, Eddie Bauer argyle socks, and (made in 1984) Allen-Edmonds saddle shoes.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
