    I agree. I wouldn't wear a suit with my Alden chukka's. Well, maybe if I had an old shabby linen suit, without tie. :)



    Makes sense, Manton. I liked this as an experiment. I might wear it again to the opening of a an art exhibition, or something like that. After this time, I've only worn lighter shirts with it. (It's an old pic.) Can you "handle" chukka's with a suit?

    Thanks, Stitch. I like to keep it simple.

    If I could be guaranteed of running into you at any particular moment, I am sure I would walk on Amsterdam. Would you post your schedule for this weekend?

    That is a good reason. Also the Hungarian Pastry Shop across the street that may or may not still be there. But I haven't been that way in a long time.

    Too many dead cats. Are you familiar with the catcopter? I believe A_Y flies one at the weekend.

    But that reminds me that if you do not own a RJ cat pocket square, you are not well dressed. Yet another reason why spoo, Fuuma, lasbar and RSS are better dressed than you. Get one from Kent Wang. I get no kickback from Wang and he charges me retail, so I am doing this only to spread the gospel of the RJ cat. The feline is the message.
    Are you sure that's not vox? He is missed.

    Ah, but it is. Any time it is conscious, it is costume. I leave it to Fuuma to argue this one for me.


    Can't compete. I have a very low opinion of the product of my alma mater's philosophy department, contracted before I e-knew mafoofan.


    I don't fucking work for you.


    That had better be lens distortion.


    No, I said that spoo is better dressed than foo. Then some Dubiously Honored Jackass edited my post to say I was a member of the :foo:rerjugend.

    You already have the hair. Don't be greedy.

    Possibly the best cookies in NYC. I lived a few blocks north of there (by the museum) for 7 years and my waistline still hasn't fully recovered.

    Maybe it was the student, not the department.

    If one is to define the relationship between costume and consciousness as bluntly and absolutely as you have, neither term retains any useful meaning: everything would be costume because, naturally, everyone is always conscious of what they choose to wear to some degree or another. As such, it's an idiotic argument. If you are going to reach for a conclusion, you need to test your own premises, not assume the most convenient ones.

    too much blue with the shoes, the shirt and tie are tough to see in the pic, but I'd wear everything here
