    Most of this photograph is occupied by a pair of Borrelli derbies made for them by Sutor Mantellassi. Forget that. I want to draw your attention, Ed, to the trousers peaking into the photograph.

    These are the least expensive trousers I have ever purchased. They are Kiton, but I acquired them through *Bay for...get this!...three packages of ramen. The guy who sold it to me really, really needed the ramen. I like to think he just likes ramen, and wasn't actually starving.

    My question: is it stylistically incorrect to wear trousers that dirt cheap even if made entirely by hand by Kiton?????

    That reminds me so much of the last time I had sex.

    This is terrible. I know SF denizens like less break than many others, but these trousers are WAY too short. And you should have your tailor let them out a bit - They're so tight we can see your junk.

    While your arm scyes are sufficiently small, the way your tailor has attached the sleeves leaves a lot to be desired.

    And those shoes... I bet they have glued soles.

    Or at least use a codpiece.

    Alright, I'm like most people and quake in fear of important business people...the kind who get paid money. I am going to meet with some really, really, really important New Yorkers this Tuesday...they do important stuff like write contracts and stuff, and some of them are masters of...I think I have this right...dirigible investments. I'm not a finance guy myself, but I do know hot air is involved.

    Anyway, when meeting with New York mucky mucks, I would like to honor my superiors with a sartorial homage. So, I plan on wearing these cufflinks featuring the New York state bird:

    We'll be eating at Le Bernadin. These cufflinks are kinda delicate, and more often than not, when I'm stuffing Eric Ripert's bland fish into my mouth, sometimes the links fall into the food, landing square in the center of the plate.

    But here's my question: is faux tweed from the Porter and Harding Glorious Twelfth book appropriate to weat with cufflinks of the New York state bird?

    I thought there would be some entertaining criticisms in here. For shame Ed, all show, no go.

    It's handy to have bespoke sex boots when one runs out of noodles:

    Well, voxsartoria, if you concider the meeting to be formal I would suggest you use a more proper and formal attire, like a suit, rather than a tweed jacket and what ever pants you plan to use.

    I think your first concern should be replacing those cheap buttons with some higher quality 4-hole buttons. You'll thank me later.

    I don't wear pants to meetings. It unnerves the enemy.
