    Lovely linens, great choices.
    They do look too short for sure, even for your standards, which are trimmer than I tend to go for.
    The overcoat is tremendous!

    It occurs to me that you are the Parisian vox, i.e. NSM added a new destination just for you.

    BTW, how do you like your DB blazer? I have been wearing an NSM DB mid gray flannel (HL 30648) for the past couple months and like it a lot. I am planning to get at least 2 more DBs. My lapels are about 1 cm or so lower than yours, and I am thinking of getting them wider. . .

    UHB - "Urban Haute Bourgeosie" for the uninitiated..

    Incidentally I went to a Whit Stillman talk recently. He sounds like John Malkovich, looks a little bit like him too. creepy.

    I used to run into Malkovich at the grocery store. I haven't seen him in a while...I hope that he's not dead.

    Only old French Marxists still wear berets.

    I don't quite get it. Stillman has something like an East Coast patrician accent. and a full head of hair. Malkovich sounds like the MidWest
    and is bald. I guess the fact that they are both middle-aged mammals qualifies as a resemblance.

    I've seen Russian special forces wear berets. They were in the city square during the protests. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to ask them what they thought of Godard or Sartre.

    The context of my comment was the "Parisian Vox" remark above.
    Not that nobody on the planet wears berets anymore, Duh.
