    There was a lot of material this month...an embarrassment of riches.

    I hope to have time to do it justice...

    Nice week. Some good ones. I missed Holdfast's blazer-suit(?) post. That looks great. It's a little more trim than the usual.

    But, Stilmacher takes the cake.

    It would have been more elegant to omit them than to point them out.

    Yes, Cravate and he have a baronial style that is interesting to see.

    I wish that we would see English versions of this.

    I'm salivating already... [​IMG]

    Nice week. Some good ones. I missed Holdfast's blazer-suit(?) post. That looks great. It's a little more trim than the usual.

    Thanks - BB Black Fleece, so yes, definitely more trim than usual (at least in the trousers; the jacket is about the same as my regular jackets). The suit came with a choice of buttons - white/cream MOP or smoked-grey MOP. The jacket is partially lined (I think 1/2, from memory) and lightweight so I went with the pale choice of buttons so it could double as a summer blazer.

    My favourite pic was LK & companion, though stilmacher comes close. I also really liked Doc's bold windowpane/bold stripes look.

    True, but while my effort to digest the WAYWRN thread is weighted to what looks good (to my eye), it is not exclusively or perfectly so.

    A lot of times, there is just a detail or a theme that I like.
