    Also with all of your expensive weapons, are you as good a shot as Burroughs?

    Anyone? Input? here is the location of the full episode I saw, "setting the stage"

    http://www.hgtv.com/videos/setting-the-stage/51475.html



    Was just watching Selling New York on HGTV, great show-- for some reason, the style of realtor Kirk Rundhaug struck me as having nice soft shoulders, good english heavier cloth/ chalkstripes, wondered if it might possibly be A&S? his style looks very british to me, very well turned out fellow in my opinion.

    thoughts?

    Eh, personally, I'm not impressed. Horses for courses, but I'm also willing to bet it's not A&S or anything related. The shoulders are way too straight and there is no drape to speak of. Also, it's got a single vent.

    yes, I suppose that is true. But, in watching this episode, i liked the suits-- and didn't think all of them were single vented, could have sworn there were some double vents in there.

    Foxx, do you realize that you post some very strange things?

    Great suit: great cut, great choice of cloth. I even like the ticket pocket. Not a fan of no-break trousers (too obviously contrived for me), but I suppose that when you walk around and wear them for a bit they do end up resting on your shoes a bit

    As was William Borroughs, who IMHO, made a grater contribution
    to the Literary Canon than that limp-wristed Anglophile.

    As was Tennessee Williams.

    Limp-wristed or from St. Louis? [​IMG]

    Bill...uhh...Vox, the size of the lapel is a good large size for my tastes

    Do your jacket/ticket pockets have flaps...which were pushed in for the photo?

    What does it mean by no trouser break?

    I feel a creme or tobacco colored shirt (preferably with stripes) would have been even nicer than the pale blue shirt worn in the pics

    The pale lavander color of this suit was not to my liking...perhaps oxblood shoes would have looked even nicer than the brown worn

    I can't figure out any more nice things to add...have a nice day Bill

    Very nice suit Vox. I actually like the width of those lapels.

    I do wish that you'd use collar stays though.

    I agree.

    Yes.

    What does it mean by no trouser break?

    I prefer that the hem doesn't go further than touching the shoe. This will produce a small break.

    I can't stand pants that go the other way, with rolling breaks. I am more forgiving of that, however, if the hem is cuffless, and if it is is slanted toward the heel.

    The world today is plauged more by pants that are hideously long than pants that are innocently short.

    I suppose is also depends on what you saw growing up.

    It's a brown Lesser nailhead from the 9.5/10 book. The ground is gray, and it is the combination of the brown with gray that makes this cloth rockin'.

    I can't figure out any more nice things to add...have a nice day Bill

    You, too, bubbah.

    Very nice suit Vox. I actually like the width of those lapels.
