    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.

    Yes, Il Vecchio. Infrequent poster, but these photos are indeed from the WAYWN thread.

    thanks. fantastic. I remember seeing the pictures when posted, but I couldn't attach a name to them.

    There are some very snazzy dressers around here. Il Vecchio's few pictures are just perfect. All of his stuff is beautifully patina'ed and worn-in. It makes me realize how new most of my things look - I don't wear my suits enough.

    Let's take a useful tangent for a moment from the topic of this thread.

    Those of you who love Il Vecchio...and you should...are loving the A&S cut. Brian Russell made for him both at A&S and afterwards...(I would have added Mr. Russell to my A&S Expats thread, but alas, he is dead.) Brian made for IL at A&S through the 80s, and continued to make for him after he left A&S.

    IL is a great example of how the soft A&S tailoring style works. Some more choice photos, not from SF's WAYWRN, but worth admiration:

    Il Vecchio is insanely stylish. Some of his tastes and flair remind me of a relative of mine who has an utterly impeccable and subtly diverse wardrobe, gets his stuff tailored "off Savile Row" and has the most sartorial grace of anyone I know. I'd also venture that they're around the same age

    What an atrocious jacket. Whoever sold him that must have seen him coming a mile away.

    The squared quarters on this reminds me of Kilgour's recent offerings...

    Am I the only one who thinks that il vecchio looks like Manton circa 2027 ?

    If Manton grows his hair out like a hippy, I will eat my hat. [​IMG]

    Well! I've certainly enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame. Many thanks for the very,very kind comments.
    I don't post very often because I always fear that pictures and views of an old coot just shy of 70
    aren't of much interest, but I hope that at least others will feel encouraged that they can still enjoy clothes and style in to older age.

    I'm already spending a lot of time trying to dress like an old coot. [​IMG] Seriously, il, your stuff is fantastic, and I hope you'll post more often. I would never have guessed you were near 70. As a tangent, I might suggest that older men have a natural style edge over young guys.

    So what's the difference between that A&S cut and Rubinacci cut where both supposely have a drape silhouette? i.e., what made his look work vs other failing bespoke examples?
