    Buy every person in the world a puppy.

    There's a lot of hungry people out there, puppies can do a lot of good.

    Perhaps you could add a:

    double-breasted camel overcoat

    grey cashmere overcoat (single or double breasted)

    shearling coat (Kiton has a nice nylon exterior/ shearling lined coat)

    Loro Piana vicuna scarf

    silk suit/sportscoat/pant

    With winter coming to an end, I felt that would not be a sensible purchase, as my size may change, but I did feel that a different coloured coat would be a nice addition. Silk suit, as in 100%? Sounds good, but where would I wear it, I have a Pal Zilleri tux, for events my parents take me along to. Can you tell me more about what kind of events one would wear a silk suit/jacket?

    Being in a temperate climate with long humid summers, I can wear silk suit/etc for 3+ months a years when even the thinnest wool Brioni/Kiton/Jil Sander/etc seems to much. Isn't the London area warm enough in summer for silk and/or linen? I read the London Times daily and the style articles often mention silk or linen. And when you travel to New York in the summer to get the great bargins the London Times often writes about in NYC, you can walk about Madison Ave/Fifth Ave in a silk or linen suit and show New Yorkers how a proper Londoner dresses.

    Yes, Linen suits are popular in London in the summer. When you said silk, I though you meant a shiny satin silk suit, do you mean like a silk crepe or violle? I am not really one to go shopping in a suit, as I said before, I only wear a suit to school, as I have to.

    Most the silk I have is from Italy, and it has no more shine than fine merino or cashmere. You might go to a bespoke place when they're not too busy and ask to look at there fabric samples.

    I suggest the staple of black tie. Then one can start adding the small but essential accessories such as various onyx cufflinks, bowties in marcella or satin/silk, etc.

    Errr, the Internet did exist in 1986. The World Wide Web, however, did not [​IMG] Outside that I can relate to your post. About that time I wore jeans exclusively and owned what may have been the world's largest collection of Ocean Pacific t-shirts known to man. I was, in essence, Jeff Spicoli. Thank God I left those days in the late 1980s.

    You are a teenage male. Why are you worried about buying clothes? GET OUTSIDE AND HAVE SOME FUN. People expect teens to be teens, which means plenty of crazy (read: fun) behaviour.

    Soon, you will be an old fart like the rest of us; sitting around thinking about what suit to buy (and worrying if it is appropriate for some boring meeting), or where to take our 2-week vacation, or worrying about the price of crude oil or the trade deficit, or some other "adult" nonsense.

    You're too young to be worried about buying a pair of oxfords or another suit. That kind of talk is unhealthy. I know that many here will not agree with me on that point, but YOU ARE A TEENAGE BOY, your primary concern should not be spending money on more clothes.

    You should be more concerned with how you're going to approach that one hot girl you've had a crush on for the last 6 months, or maybe with being accepted at some university you have chosen, or whatever, there are really a million things more important. I apologize for the preaching, I will stop now.

    Dude, what happened between then and now? How does one go from Jeff Spicoli, the ultimate slacker, to Gordon Gekko, os "Greed is Good" fame. And don't give me that younf conservative, old liberal bromide either.

    (LA Guy @ Feb. 17 2005,17:53) Jeans and sneakers, and tee-shirts and hoodies. And a pullover here and there. You can never have too many of these staples. C'mon man, you're 17.
    Don't get me wrong, out of school that is what I wear, and I can never get tired of a new pair of Dior Homme, Richmond, or McQueen Jeans. But for school I have to wear a suit.
    Wait, so what do you wear to the boardroom meetings? How about when you tell conference from the 'home office'? Jon.

    That actually reminds me of something very funny that happened to me.

    I was doing a bit of clay-pigeon-shooting with some friends, and was having a conversation with this girl (she is stunning actually). We were talking about trust funds, Swiss bank accounts how much of the investors had started investing in different countries now, and all sorts of nonsense, (stuff you would say we teens shouldn't be talking about) . The instructor said to us, (and the person really pisses me off, because he always touches her and moves her into position to help her shoot, which to me just seems a bit paedophillic) "You guys seem much more intelligent than I was when I was your age, I don't even understand a lot of what you are talking about now". The girl's very apt and witty comment was "˜Westminster School Ya'know" putting on a very harsh Chelsea girl accent. At first, I felt hurt by the comment of the instructor; then I though to myself, well, look at you, your butt-ugly, you work at a shooting ground, and you are a sleaze bag, it is not a wonder you do not know what we are talking about. Latter on, the guy says to us, "leave the stock market alone now, and lets enjoy some shooting". I was going to say, we were not even talking about the stock market farm-boy, but I guess dignity got the better of me.

    Don't worry, I do plenty of 'teen' things, go to bars, the cinema, etc.etc. I'm not totaly lost, just a little...

    Sounds like a pretty good life you have - with a very nice wardrobe. Don't worry, something will come along that you want - until then - just enjoy what you have.

    You have only considered one reply in this entire thread and everything else you took pleasure in shooting down. This leads me to believe that the only reason you made this post is to make all of us aware of your extensive wardrobe. Bugatti's aside, you seem to love to shock people on this board with your enviable collections (highly ungentlemanly), and judging by the 5 pages this post has reached, it's working.
