    Neah...I'm busy with some stuff that requires close attention in the next month or so, and my mornings are going to be packed.

    Same thing happened last year...after posting pics for about two months, I was absent for about ten before gracing the storied panorama of human folly known as WAYWRN again about two months ago.

    Of course we all noticed, but newbies need to be reminded that there was once a time when you were not here and those dark days might return again if they don't eat their peas.

    I'm not sure if I want to comtemplate SF without Vox's presence.

    Striped suits! Much better than taking pics in a mirror. Who takes these for you?

    I should still have time for snark.

    That's really the important thing, anyway.

    Camera is on a timer. Here's a Brioni MTM chalk stripe for you that might have missed:

    Not snoozy.

    I think that I have much of my new bespoke solids nailed down at this point, so I will be doing a few patterned suits in the coming year to begin replacing my old RTW/MTM patterned suits (although I will keep the Brioni above.) Maybe a black suit with a strongly demarcated white bead.

    There will be windowpanes as well, so you might need to avert your eyes.

    Ah, maybe I should be a stand for my camera. I asked because I wont take mirror photos and it's difficult to get people to take enough photos of you without arousing their suspicion. Yes, more stripes. I don't dislike windowpanes, I don't want to wear them for formal occasions but they're alright in a single breasted and on other people. I might wear a low contrast windowpane but I never bother except this one suit I have. You do a very good Kouros pose btw.

    Where do the girls come from, did we get female members or something or did the "my GF, let me show you her" mentality catch on after the fucknu/online business guido thread? Also did Yachtie lose like 25 pounds?

    Yes & Yes. Apparently. I can't say I disapprove of either outcome.

    It's funky that my 70s inspired outfit made the cut for this week. My favourite outfit from this week is probably Sterling Gillette's turtleneck look. Precise but still relaxed - tricky thing to pull off so well!

    Shirts are next. I have sworn to solve my shirt problem by the end of the summer.

    And the square is this one...

    Crisp. Black. Dangerous. Guaranteed to get pummelled by the Nacci-ists. Delightful. Classic. English.

    That's a great square. I'm not sure if white people and giraffes ever actually coexisted in nature outside of zoos but nice regardless.

    I coexist with giraffes, but only briefly while in battle, mano a hoofo.

    I was hoping to be the first one in with a Tammis Keefe hankie. Good job. Now I'm forced to settle for souvenir Rockefeller Center squares.

    You can be the first if you really want. I am perfectly happy to forget about wearing them for ten years or so.
