    Really, what is the need to be so rude, ernest puts forward valid points, as does LA Guy, Ernest can put forward the excuse that he cannot speak english (though I am sure he knows he is being rude). LA is rightly so reatliating, but some of his comments are just like childish stabs at ernest.

    I don't want, or mean to be rude, simply frank, on a world scale, Americans have a far worse repute.
    Fair enough. Â In my experience, (BTW, I am neither American nor French), most Americans abroad seem to be very aware of their bad reputation, and try to better it. Â The Germans, English, and French, in that order, don't seem to care that they are in fact representing their countries. Â My Spanish friends cringe at the very thought of the British and German contingents that make their pilgrimages to Ibiza.
    Please do not take this in the wrong way, but: 1. Spain - Least developed country in the EU, before the new eastern countries, so who are they to talk. 2. Only northerners go to Spain, I am a Londoner, I dont care what northerners do, I cannot even understand them.

    And the reason they do not care is because the upper classes in both the UK and Germany, more than make up for the council-estate scum.

    Lanvin = not what is was Suits = made by Canali I think so can we say it is a real brand? Shirts = from bad to worse = written LANVIN on buttons, only fused collar, no spit yoke, poor choice YSL = Suits = fused, poor fabrics (try to find a super 15O by YSL) Shirts = rather poor quality (1 ply for most) Charvet = Good quality but sleeves too short on RTW and PRICE..... H&K and T&A are among the best shirtmakers. Dunhill has nice products (try to find cufflinks in french brands&#33[​IMG] Savil row even for RTW is far better than YSL. Faconnable has nice suits. May be the only french brand for suits with Dior.

    You are ridiculious... You must be one of this turned sour guy who make a job he does not like, has a life he does not want, who has no succes with women.... And who try to relieve himself by saying others have not the life they SHOULD have to be like him. You may like working 9h day long for a wages that allow you bying Boss suits. Sorry I prefer being unemployed and bying Lanvin suits because I do not pay rent. Each in his life. You like yours. Congratulation. Keep it. Everybody should do like you? Like the others? Do not cross the line. What are your opinions about : - abortion - guns - religion at school [​IMG]

    I personally like the style of english products more than french while owning both (I have some Saville Row suits, and a Dior Homme suit) partially this is my body type but also because I like the understated look.

    There are other french designers that weren't mentioned (Dior, JPG, etc...) and while I personally prefer the English style, one could make the argument that French designers are more progressive.

    ernest,

    while not taking sides, I think you're missing his point. I believe he's trying to say that it is hypocritical to refer to working people as "low class" when you don't hold a job and depend on others for shelter.

For you culture, Guy is a french name. So please take Jurgen or Otto. It would sounds better with your Boss suit

    French fries does not mean it is french. French kiss never. Even if theses cuffs were french (mousquetaire in France), this does not mean french garments are better than english ones. One more time, french fashion is wonderfull...for women.

    What's a sactorial peacock? With a c.[/quote] Very hard to explain, spend a few years in London, you will work it out.. What does a.c. mean. Basicaliy, someone who does not give a dam what the end result looks like, they simply put great emphasis onto each peice in their outfit, and quality over style is always the case. They tend to wear colours like purple a lot. Silk shirts are a also common amongst the peacocks.

But it seems the addition of a c tends to deter understanding.
