    I hear you; I blame iammatt.[​IMG]

    And yet, the button-down with french cuffs never caught on.

    Damn sartorial public. So fickle.

    Is this where the line forms for pix of pointy end silk knits on wooden tables?

    BB sold them in Fall '06, and they're the one SF 'thing' I cottoned to before I got here. Now Zegna has navy silk ones, striped and dotted, in the window on 5th. So they're done [​IMG]

    I mentioned in another thread, there's a BB Black Fleece version now.

    Next stop: Banana Republic.

    I've not seen patterned knits like Tomasso's before. Kind of like lacy stockings for men. I like them.

    They all read every word we type, seriously.


    And look for a Sean John issue in the near future as Diddy was admiring one of my BD/FC shirts last month.

    I used to only wear knit ties with sport jackets, but now I wear them with lighter, sportier suits too. Probably due to the SF influence [​IMG]

    I still don`t wear them with darker, business-like suits though.

    This one may be cotton, I am not sure.


    Nice suit. I'll even give a pass to the overcheck, which walks close to the edge.

    Worsted or something off-center?

    Who's the smaller dude standing behind him? His suit is in the same overcheck.

    About 8 weeks ago after buying a Black Fleece bd with fc, I ordered a few pinpoint bd shirts with fc from BB. They haven't arrived, yet, but I'm looking forward to getting them.

    It is a fresco from Woodhouse. I suppose that they call it something different than fresco, the book is Summer Comfort.

    Mini Me is also wearing the same fabric. That is how we roll.
