    Bonus iGent points to the first one to correctly identify where Thomas Stearns Eliot bought this suit.

    Easy.

    None more Brahmin than Eliot, even counting the conversion to official Albionism.

    The four piece suit is so little known today.

    April really is the best month for Eliot-inspired snark.

    After Accidie wol I speke of Avarice and of Coveitise, of which synne seith
    Seint Paul that " the roote of alle harmes is Coveitise. " Ad Thimotheum Sexto.
    For soothly, whan the herte of a man is confounded in itself and troubled, and that
    the soule hath lost the confort of God, thanne seketh he an ydel solas of worldly thynges.

    I just spent about three days reading this thread from end to end, and now I feel the slight letdown one experiences after finishing a good book. This thread is a fascinating glimpse into the lives and minds of men who command both a shitload of money and the good sense to squander it on elegant frivolities.

    Nonsense? No doubt...just my first thoughts when finished reading.

    But a great thread, even the bullshit is first rate. And it makes me wonder, for the millionth time, why magazine illustrations don't just show what the darned clothes look like.

    An analogous thread on Italian tailoring would be interesting.

    I just received a 3-piece DB made from the blue Brisa PoW from English Cut. If I feel particularly stupid and brave, I may post fit pics. As with the other Brisa, the cloth is surprisingly heavy. I will see how it holds up this weekend visiting the cool and wet Northeast.

    That's because for a warm weather cloth, it is - it's 13oz.
