    The only way you could have missed it was to have him on ignore. Don't tell me you have also missed the fresco obsession?
    Completely missed that too. You like, he hates? He likes, you hate? I'm dying to know

    I voted for drape but I pretty much like all of the posted jackets.

    Sorry to be late to the big-endian/little-endian party, but for those that weren't computer geeks, the dispute which originated in Gulliver's Travels (having to do with which end of a hard boiled egg you open - which is ridiculous because obviously it's the little end) has been co-opted by computer scientists to describe the way in which a byte is arranged in memory. There are advantages and disadvantages to each system which is why the debate has raged on for so long.

    Oh, he hates. Oh, does he hate. More than that, he thinks fresco basically disqualifies a person from participation in modernity. He also insists that, whatever your personal experience with the cloth, you are wrong and that the universal truth is that it perfoms badly and does not travel well.

    Some epic recent exchanges with Vox and dopey on this.

    The condescension is ascending quickly. It may be funny if there weren't some sincerity in these comments. [​IMG]

    Foof is draped, and he cannot condescend to anyone except whnay, who is also draped.

    You love drape. Shall I hit you with the heavy artillery?

    [​IMG]


    I admit, I do love the properly deployed drape. A touch of it, anyway. But I still don't think I'd choose it for myself. Maybe in a few years.

    On the other hand, how many guys do we have posting really nicely done clean coats? No slight to Yachtie, of course, but there seems to be a critical mass of drape bespeakers. For a long time, there was little bespoke pictured at all, and now the most of it is drapey. If someone came along and started posting his collection of John Steed-esque clean coats, I'd be all over that, and I'm guessing it probably wouldn't be long before we'd see more of it.

    Helps your cause that you drape guys are so chatty too. [​IMG]

    Thank you, Your Uniqueness [​IMG] . I feel honored to be quoted by you. I'm a mere RTW wearer whose tie knot lies limp on my chest like a dead baby squirrel

    Don't worry Vox, you pay people who pay people to understand what I'm talking about. [​IMG]

    It was an apt comparison by Manton earlier although Vitamininc picked up on the CS implications which is commonly used (and for which it serves as a pun in addition to being apt).

    Arise, oh Le Bernadin diner. You are more than a RTW wearer...you are RTW lapel re-roller, a consumate closeteer.

    I still wear RTW a lot myself, so I feel your pain. We suffer together, like brothers.

    There are lots of CS people near me...even QI computing people.

    You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Beef Drapes?

    Sounds like a nickname for a lasered fat girl.
