Trump was right, you had three foreigners voting with you!

Four, if you count Mr. Crockett and Mr. Jones as separate people!
Last election I wore Oxxford, BB, and Alden. These are crazy times and I was just happy to have a pulse and get to vote. 😎

I just received the Epaulet masks. They're very well made, but I wish they fit around the ears better. Anyone have masks whose fit they really like? Do I have to go bespoke? :lol:
The masks fit much better now after a few wears. Apparently the elastic needed to break in to fit my ears.

Different material but same designer here, better price.


I don’t find the price for these objectionable. It's less than you’d pay for a high end sport coat and basically the same thing, right?
I’ve ordered from these guys in the past and their stuff is usually quite nice.

I don’t really think a Teba is meant to be sweater-like though. It originated as a hunting jacket.

Yeah, just this was somewhat similar. More of a sitting by the fire with a pipe and Scotch sort of sweater.

Yes, I agree but as hobbyists we do have a certain degree of expertise. Nothing wrong with imparting a little wisdom formed from experience. I’ll pass on constructive criticism to folks that I somewhat arrogantly think need it.

Nothing wrong with telling the young dude to remove the basting stitches from side vents or constructively pointing out over-large shoulders on someone’s jacket if you have a rapport with them.

No different from any hobbyist pointing out some nuance to a novice.
One thing people should always be cautious of is anyone who refers to themselves as an expert in something that mostly revolves around opinion.

Not sure why but I don’t enjoy wearing sweaters. I’ve owned many but never found them comfortable for one reason or another. I haven’t worn a sweater in years.

An informed opinion but, yes, still just an opinion.

I got rid of all but two winter suits. When it’s cold out I like a cashmere cardigan with my suit/sport coat. For casual wear I like thin cashmere crew necks. I get warm easily, though, and dislike chunky sweaters unless it’s seriously cold out.

was just looking through the fall catalogs for Williams & Kent and Patrick James. Nice stuff.

Korma and a Taj at my local Indian spot.
View attachment 1461708
What is your local Indian spot? Too often the Indian places that get recommended in DC are "higher end" and not the typical curry house I look for. During COVID I actually nailed how to make curry after months of cooking at home which has saved me a ton of money.
