Discussion in 'Classic Menswear' started by mussel, Feb 3, 2005.
Yes, but the relevant question is, was any business discussed at the party?
In honour of that oh so glorious day dedicated to love and that psychotic species that has been so wonderful to me over the years, I will be wearing, in all appropriateness:
A black suit.
Maybe we should all pitch in and send flowers to mussel, who got this whole monster thread rolling in the first place.
Yes, but do the rules permit sending Black Roses during the day?
Only if the stems are tapered.
And the thorns are "kissing".
AND THE WINNER IS:
The Hennessy Bras ArmÃ replaced Three stars and was produced between 1961 and 1973. As you probably know, Cognac only ages in oak casks, not in bottles. FYI: any value the bottle in question may have accumulated over the years would come from the rarity of the presentation of your bottle and the number of bottles of it left in the world, rather than from "additional" aging of the cognac.
Ah... any value it has is purely sentimental, Much like his old Fedora
Appreciate the information as I had no clue as to whether it was an old bottle or an OOOOOLLLLLD bottle
WOW.. I didn't check the forum for several days and the thread exploded to more than 50 pages. I kinda know black suit is not appropriate for business. I came across an Isaia black suit on sale, I just needed to hear from you I don't need a black suit so I don't have to regret later on I didn't get it.
It's funny how this thread evolved into. Booz, law, Plato, Socrates, my tailor can beat up your tailor, and kissing button.
There should be a poll on sleeve button placement. Let's do it.
That Isaia black suit in question, the source of a 50 pages thread, is now marked down to $350. It's a big bargain if you can find a way to get use out of it.
Wow. It's a pity that so many potentially helpful whiskey reviews are scattered in such a meandering thread.
Feel free to cull them and start a thread in the Food and Drink forum. I'm sure it would be appreciated by others.
Now I really wish I knew more about wine...
I'm a Laphroaig fan, Scotch-wise. Bourbon always seemed a bit too sweet for me. The oldier and peatier the Scotch the better -- ideally it should taste like distilled socks.
I own a black suit, and the damn buttons don't kiss or even really Eskimo rub, although it is a Darren Beaman original. I ordered it since I really don't move in circles currently where I need a DJ, certainly not a new one that would cost me $5000. I wouldn't wear my black suit in the daytime unless I was an advertising executive or something. It's smart enough for an evening thing in "business-slovenly" DC without scaring the khaki-clad masses. Oh, puhleez (to quote Chuck?) don't read anything elitist in that.
I know my black suit is wrong and it's a sartorial solecism. However, for my current situation it suits my tastes and needs. I am not a taste arbiter like Bresch nor a sage like Manton, with whom I side. Yes, a black suit is against the rules. I know it. There's scienter -- arrest me.

IMMSMC, that's a quote from you, posted on another thread, regarding cashmere socks.
