    Well, isn't it their fault for not inviting the Film Noir Buffs, mafoofans, and Mantons of the world, instead of just the Vox Sartorii (of whom there are few left who want to go, I presume)?

    What about me? I'm an aspirational, but low-class social climber too!

    Manton, put FNB on ignore.

    I do not know enough about FNB's background to say anything, but I think that I know enough about Manton and mafoofan to say that each represent one type of social force...meritocracy...

    It would be more accurate to say that I am an example of the Peter Principle.

    Ignore is for the weak.

    I used to think so too, but I've been using it on certain irritants recently, and it feels pretty good. Of course, I may be weak.

    The other day you posted a WAYWN in streetwear with an EG bedford. The fit was amazing but....Has it been tailored?

    thanks

    Thanks, J. Do you mean this wool plaid one>

    If so, it's not altered at all. It's a medium, which on me in a close fit for the Bedford. On other Bedfords that I have, I also do a large for a slouchier fit...like this knit one:

    Manton
    and mafoo embody meritocracy? Wouldn't someone like Ed Hayes or Piobaire embody that?

    Represent and embody are related, but not the same thing.

    And my point is tested more by what is expected and normal than what is surprising and exceptional.

    You can be so naive, sometimes (which, to prove that I have read this thread, is not the same thing as dense.)

    From the summit, the men toiling in the valley and the men living on the flanks look equally tiny, and there is nothing to distinguish one from the other.

    Pish posh.

    I can pick out the ones with big heads much more easily, even without binoculars.
