    Tuesday - cold, but a perfect day on which to debut my latest indulgence, a made-to-measure suit from Brooks Bros., made at their Southwick factory, rather than through Martin Greenfield. This afforded me the chance to have something made using their Regent silhouette, rather than their Madison model. The results are as below.

    Suit - BB MTM
    Shirt - BB MTM
    Tie - BB
    Cufflinks - Niletti Creations, NYC
    Braces - Lewin
    PS - PRL
    Vintage watch chain
    Shoes - Finsbury, Paris
    Overcoat - Adolfo
    Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center
    Scarf - Fortnum & Mason, London

    So good, Crusty. Windowpane seems to be a perfect look for you.

    An English garden can be recreated quite easily and the English countryside is glorious, but not irreplaceable.

    So what @Cleav will actually miss is: real bacon, pub culture, real news broadcasts, taxis.

    Oh, and Happy New Year everyone. I took a break from SF while on vacation, but I am back to the grind and, thus, my favorite diversion.

    I don't think I've ever seen a suit fit with gingham where Bengal stripe wouldn't have been a better choice. Gingham can't help but say 'casual' or 'summer' to me at least, even when it's more conservatively tailored as in this shirt...

    I like the fact that you're toning things down a bit these days though, and the fit and colour combination is good.

    I'm not claiming that the UK has no tabloid "news" and is exempt from reporting bias, I am claiming that there is scant opportunity to avoid such in the US, where it is the norm to conflate news and opinion.

    Well put, SeaJen. For example, I doubt too many British newscasters would declare Birmingham a "Muslims-Only City," as one prominent American network did yesterday.

    [Not picking political sides; just wanted a recent, egregious example].

    I completely disagree. While living overseas I had an opportunity to view more british news than I ever cared to. I was shocked by the tabloidy (is that a word?) nature of even the mainstream broadcasts. I'm not saying U.S. news is better, but British news is definitely NOT better either.

    Actually, British news often gets cultural things in the U.S. wrong, just as the U.S. gets them wrong for Britain.
