    Yet wearing multiple, brightly-colored beaded bracelets is perfectly chic...

    They're not SF approved...[​IMG]

    Not by me anyway.

    Why do you want to wear that flower lapel pin in the first place?

    Wear a flower, would be my suggestion.

    Question to the crowd: What on earth is going on with the pocket square in the picture? Looks like shredded to pieces to my eyes. Or am I just not recognising what actually is lace? But then - lace???

    I wear one as well on purpose in hopes of running into a Sr SF'er who will make a mockery out of me and my hot ass wife with an amzing body.

    True story.

    Sometimes things develop in a pleasant way even though they start out weird.

    In case the OP doesnt know, the SF's mightiest and greatest have already weighed in on the subject of lapel flowers
    Ah, a return to form! I like it. Except for that flower. I know it's all the rage, but it bugs the f*ck out of me--it introduces the taint of gimmickry to an otherwise very nice outfit.
    - thanks & in hind sight I should have never worn the flower so much & kept it as a random detail - talking about the RAGE, imagine you were me & receiving emails/PMs about where to get them.. - but the reality is I have only ever seen one other doing it right IRL - then imagine the RAGE when certain SF(s) who not only have no "personal" style start selling them as if they are Peter Lee experts when they have never met him IRL. - such is the 1% community we live in where we dissect the details yet IRL the 99% would not take notice or take care
    I like the flower. Its concentration online in one forvm is surely not replicated in real life, in which it can be a small affectation that is charming with the right personality...like, oh, unbuttoned BDs with neckties. I would agree that a room full of such flowers would be a bit Stepford Wives. That ain't gonna happen, though, except perhaps in one of those SF meet ups that I keep missing. - B
    I don't like it because it's a fake, cutesy flower. A little cartoon sailboat or smiley face would be no better, and it would look bad to me regardless of amongst whom and how many it was popular. My point about its popularity in this thread was that it shows how stylistic quirks can catch on like wildfire when critique and a mind toward objectivity are discouraged.
    The cuteness of the flower is the exact reason I bought one, and the exact reason why I've never worn it.
    My, my, my faux sprez hits me so hard Makes me say oh my Lord Thank you for blessing me With an ego to brog and VASS shod feet It feels good when dudes bob your knob This superdope homeboy don’t wear no Lobb An iThug known as such And this is a beat, uh, you can't cuss I told you MaoMao, you can't cuss this gshen that's how just saying and you know you can't cuss this Look at my camo man you can't cuss this You know let me bust the HK Spalla Camicci’ you can't cuss this Freshly scuffed kicks, 5cm cuffed pants You gotta like that, now you know PG don’t dance So move out of my seat Stalk a fly girl and catch this beat 40 yr old virgin, hold on Hold my tote while I check what's going on Like that, like that Felt lapel flower so pull on back Let em know that you're too much And this is my B.V., uh, you can't cuss M8 I told you, you can't cuss this Why you standing there m8 you can't kop this Yo sound the bells Samsonite case sold out you can't cuss this Give me a Men’s Ex or Leon Making 'em guess that's what I'm giving 'em Now they know when you talk about GW You talk about a sales guy that's hyped and full of shite Birthday girls are bored so pass them a mic Or a brog to learn What's it gonna take on SF to burn The fits?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that the WWI poppy worn in the UK (and other commonwealth countries) only in Novemeber?

    You are (almost) correct. Poppies are sold and displayed in November in England with the money raised going to the British legion which is a charity that supports all veterans not just WW1 as there aren't any of those left. This IMO is a million miles away from the ridiculous affectation of the felt flower.
    'The Last Tommy' is a very good book about our last WW1 vet.

    Almost certainly to commemorate 'the fallen', but in true Royal style, his is different to the usual, two-leaved, paper variety the rest of us get.

    Yeah, but the origin of the symbol is the poem "In Flanders Field," right? (Written by a Canuck.)

    Wow...this makes me feel really old. I spent a good portion of three youthful summers working on a farm that was tenant farmed by a German-American WWI American vet. H was a complex and funny guy who believed in luck.
