    The help never seems to know its place these days.

    I had my valet beat him with the cricket bat I used during my Eton days.

    That will show the old codger what the reality of social place really is now! [​IMG] [​IMG] Now, as for the suit... it could be worse. while I love FDN's more normal trousers, this, uhm, "suit", is dreadful. Behold the power of teh stripy Before you say "hmm, looks normal" scroll down and look at the detail pictures. Maybe EG will like it?

    I was surprised to see this cheesy line for sale in Harrod's last November. They had given them their own, shop-in-a-shop. It was so tacky, so 70's pimp and so expensive. I think the Style Forum should have an intervention with their customers.

    Maybe not in Red.... but, the shape is beautifully done. This buttonhole easily beats Brioni, Borrelli, and Kiton.

    Well then I agree. I don't like the long (or short) straight lapel buttonholes. Frankly, they look ridiculous, no matter how "correct" they may be. This shape is much nicer.

    Everyone should look at the pics on this site. As the slide show progresses the clothing really becomes a comedy.
