    About braces-
    Mom thought they were so old fashion, she recently died in her 80s. Granddad said that proper suit trousers came up on the ribcage aways. This give uniformity to the suit as a whole and lengthens the legs in appearances, and shortens the vest, he was from the 1890s. Short waisted trousers is more like and odd coat and odd trousers combination. But the younger generation changed the rules, as did the next generation and so on, as had been done with earlier generations (nothing new here). Today on these forums we have a mixed bag. I also like to see braces instead of them always being hidden, so the rule of never showing braces should stay in the past with the Brits. Seeing braces add curoisity about the person and shows some of his charactor, why hide that? White tie and black tie the braces would be a distraction, but with nearly all other clothes they are a pleasure to see. From my perspective some people are pushing the wrong rules.

    I prefer waifish models who subsist on diet coke and the occasional vodka (solely), because I think a woman's bone structure (a graceful back, gently protruding ribs, shapely arms and legs) to be subtly beautiful. I find bodies like this to be a bit too ample, bordering on vulgar. But it's a treat to look at and fuck about with.

    Prithy tell, on what point is there this established consensus?

    You said yourself that although you know there is a palpable forum penchant for fishtail trousers, you think they look ridiculous on people under 30 because they are no longer favored by them. If you wanted to learn and extract value from your participation here, you wouldn't waste time rejecting forum tastes on the mere basis of non-forum norms.

    Please. Vox flies for no one. His tailors, caviar, and boy slaves fly for him.

    Pants that come up to the ribcage are an awesome felon look:

    Hmm, that does change things. I thought he would go out on the town that evening and ride one of the bulls in the grandstand. After all, they have real bulls out there. Show those cowboys that an Eastern can ride, too. But, he can always bring the grandstand and bulls and cowboys and tailor to his elstate for the evening.

    It's impossible to tell how it fits based on those photos, but I would double-check that the collar is high and tight enough.

    Speaking of steak, I just went to the original Morton's and had their Chicago-style bone-in ribeye, medium rare. Nice hunk of meat.

    When I'm feeling adventurous, though, the David Burke Primehouse 75 day dry-aged ribeye can't be fucked with. The mold is simply pungent. I mean that in the most delightful way possible.

    Yeah, I know. Way back when, in England, shirtsleeves and braces were considered "undergarments." Thank God I didn't live in England back then. Punishing summer heat whilst wearing a worsted wool suit and hat? I would have died. Thankfully, nobody abides by these rules any more, and you can wear a shirt and tie around the office without looking like you're walking around in your boxers. Good times.

    Have you ever been to the UK summer? Unless you're in the southwest I think we're lucky if the thermometer passes 16 C (60 F)! [​IMG] Not exactly punishing summer heat...

    Is that from the heat given off when the townspeople burn this wicker thing?
