    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Wearing a Dunn & Co Harris Tweed jacket when visiting my old friends, Santa and Mrs. Claus.

    Santa let me hold his Staff Of Office in recognition of my lifetime of work supporting the Claus Cause.

    Verily Christmas mirth is wasted on Roycru's teutonic countenance!

    Alright, that's enough from my funny bone side. I like that shirt collar shape, is it vintage Brooks Bros. stuff?

    I don't think anyone would mind me posting this here. I have one of my bespoke, tweed malloy and Sons tweed sport coats up for the SF holiday auction right now, retail is 3000 and we are currently up to 2150 I think.

    This is was last tweed out the door:

    The winner will get a fully handmade bespoke which means a garment produced locally, an individual pattern produced and stored for them, multiple fittings and naturally a try on fitting. If you live out of state or abroad we can work out for you to come in at your leisure or we could do a stock size and ship to you.

    Styling, lining and cloth choice is up to the winning bidder.

    Best,

    Dave.

    Thank You.

    It's an L L Bean Made In USA 60% cotton 40% polyester (with a flap pocket, like a J Press shirt) OCBD shirt from that wonderful time before the "Officious Preppy Handbook" (which was in the "Humor" section, not "Fashion" section, in bookstores) was published, and people who didn't know that it was a joke book stopped buying all the wonderful fabric blends that the genius of Man had created.

    Humanity was the loser and moths and dry cleaners were the winners.

    (When that horrid woman wrote a second book "True Prep" in 2010, it was also in the "Humor" section in bookstores.)

    Thinking of getting myself this Peter Christian Donegal in the 2 piece suit. Is it a fairly heavy tweed Sarge? I'm looking for something with a bit of weight to it

    I have a pair of trousers made up from this Molloy & S. tweed. It is a little hard to pair with sportcoats so mostly gets worn with sweaters. I would like another pair from a similar tweed if I can fins something more suitable for wearing with a sportcoat. I remember there was a more typical birdseye in gray and that might be better for trousers than this chunky nailhead.

    Fortunato, I believe it may be a typographical error 'deeds/deets/details'. Our friend, I believe, was sufficiently impressed with the jacket to ask for the details as to the make up, maker, seller etc

    Best,

    German Text :

    Zwiegenäht
    Zwiegenäht, original
    Original zwiegenäht und trigenäht sind die haltbarsten Macharten die heute noch hergestellt werden. Wie der Name "original zwiegenäht" sagt, ist der Schaft des Schuhs zweifach mit dem Boden des Schuhs vernäht (beim trigenähten Schuh dann dreifach). Bei der rahmengenähten Machart hingegen ist beides nur einfach vernäht. Der Deutsch-Amerikaner Eppler, vormals ein Kompagnon von Charles Goodyear, entwickelte schon gegen Ende des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts eine Maschine mit der auch die Zwienaht maschinell ausgeführt werden konnte. Original zwiegenähte Schuhe sind am Sohlenrand zu erkennen. Das Oberleder wird nach außen geschlagen und ist im Schnitt sichtbar. Original zwiegenähte Schuhe werden bei Verwendung von schweren Ledern ohne Lederrahmen hergestellt. Im Gegensatz zu rahmengenähten Schuhen sind zwiegenähte Schuhe wasserdicht. Zwiegenähte, (trigenähte) Schuhe sind die stabilsten und strapazierfähigsten Schuhe die heute hergestellt werden.

    wish you all a good jump into the new year !!!!!!!

    This suit is made up from the London Lounge "Agnelli Tweed". It's very flannel-like (while clearly not a flannel), which brings up a question: what makes a tweed cloth a tweed cloth? It's not a weave, I believe. Or is it? This Agnelli Tweed is very soft, not scratchy at all (thank goodness as the trousers are only half lined in front), and not what one would conventionally think of as a "tweed". So is it just a definitional thing?
