    Of course it is. It's almost required. Add a white tie, and you're there, baby!

    No, no, no...a red tie. I'd think an Italian would know better. Sheesh.

    I believe there are 15 posts per page instead of the old 10.

    I was going for that Roddy-McDowell-plays-the-Devil-on-Fantasy-Island look. That's style.

    Black suit is a formal attire, but as LabelKing show us, You can wear black suit in some situations like that. I wear my black suit for formal events, high style restaurants, concert/theatre/opera. I business situations I can wear my navy suit. Charcoal or med grey suit is the best for business in my opinion.

    Hot diggety dog! Between this thread being alive and Marc Grayson & Darren Beaman reliving the Wall Street shirt saga over on Devil'sIsland.com, I'm feeling positively young again. Like a whole, entire year has been erased from my life. Rejuvenating! Totally rejuvenating. [​IMG]

    The black suit thread is still here!!
    But it lost some of its data, did it not? I thought it was left at 50 pages before the crash.

    Well, it lost my username. So I just re-registered. No big deal...I'm just happy that SF is back.

    He's not Italian. Just posing as one to sell more Fashion-related books.

    Is this a friendly dig, or a genuine troll? Honestly, I can't tell.

    I am not "posing" as anything. There is no doubt from reading the book or even the dust jacket copy that I am American. The first name on the book is "Nicholas," not "Niccolo," after all. Lots of red-blooded Americans have Italian surnames. Also, several Europeans of various nationalities have read the manuscript, and all of them pointed out how "American" it seemed to them.
