Take a crappy pic, mention that is all bespoke from RUbinacci / A&S / Cappelli / Lobb, let everyone kiss your ass, then tell you got it all from Boss.

There is also an opposite dynamic at work, namely that some posters prefer to nitpick the really storied brands/houses. So for all the slobbering that Rubinacci gets, it also gets a great deal of total BS criticism. "What about that 2 cm ripple under the left armhole? Totally inexcusable for bespoke at that price!!!"

I'm not so sure if the higher/irrational level of scrutiny is because of the prestige/price of the clothing or because of the online personalities of the persons wearing it.

Would Cric OZ or ECB ditch the Ashes if BCCI offered them a 5 test + 5 ODI tour to India / or by India at the same time ?

Disillusioned with what? It's just clothes, some people want to elevate it to an academic exercise and many of the posts/criticisms end up being attacks/pen0r measuring contests but who cares? Wear what you like, read the threaks that interest you and live your life.

it was an estimate but you can leave on fri from kennedy and return on sunday for $700 which leaves you $1995 for shoes or 1262.5 british pounds i think that will get you something
