    Elevated Steve Jobs?

    But for real, have always felt that a decent-fitting black turtleneck has been under appreciated.

    This is very irrational I know, but that cardigan is so horrible (in every way - colour, texture, shape) it makes me angry... I love the trousers and shoes, though.

    : ) Good eye for Mickey, fritzl. I read the Alden thread...




    Yes, elevated! Not those ugly thin faux turtlenecks the iMessiah used to wear. :)

    I agree, a black turtle neck is a classic. Think Paris in the 60's (or whatever decade). This S.N.S. design is from 1975.

    I recently received a shell cordovan belt from Rancourt in color #8 that works very well with just about any casual outfit I put together. If you don't want to pay for a grey suede belt, a cordovan belt may be out of your price range. On the other hand, it's probably much more versatile than a grey suede belt and color #8 would still work with those chukkas probably.



    Not to beat a dead horse by bringing this up again since it seems to have quieted down for a few pages, but regarding the digi-camo pants from Epaulet and the wearing of military-inspired patterns or designs (or authentic military clothing) by those who didn't serve or those who are not currently on active duty, this former Marine will throw his 2¢ in:

    I mentioned in a post a few pages back how sharp I think NYRanger's digi-camo chinos look. I served six years on active duty in the Marines and they don't offend me in the slightest. I get more offended when I see Army personnel (or National Guard) out and about in their utility uniforms at airports or traveling basically anywhere outside of a base. That was always a punishable offense in the Marine Corps and I guess that is just something that stuck with me. I understand that different services have different regulations, it just still irks me. I also understand that my feeling is irrational.

    If a civilian wants to wear military fatigues, or something with a camouflage print on it, and they aren't doing so in order to pass off that they are/were in the service and fishing for some sort of special treatment or pretending that they were Johnny Bad Ass, more power to them.

    Regarding the Marine Corps sensitivity to their MARPAT design - the powers that be went as far as embedding many miniature EGAs into it and it was generally impossible to find the authentic garments at the local surplus stores near Camp Lejeune and Camp Pendleton because there were so few companies that originally had the license to produce it. This was a real pain in the butt when the uniforms where first introduced and folks like myself were recalled to active duty from the IRR a few years back. All I had were the old style utilities and had to stock up on the digi ones rather quickly. Unfortunately I was only able to buy one pair at the uniform store on Lejeune at the time. You can imagine how quickly those became rather ripe, even with frequent washing. :crazy:

    FWIW, while I was moving around some boxes a few months ago I opened one that had all my old digi style utilities and saw that they were made by American Apparel in Los Angeles. That must be worth some SF cred (maybe over in the SW&D forum though).

    Why would an Army guy who is abiding by Army regulations "offend" you?

    It didn't offend me that they were following regulations, it offended me that the Army regulations aren't the same as Marine Corps regulations. Like I said, I admit my reaction isn't rational.
