    Glenplaid = buzz? [​IMG] Isn't that one of the most common cloth patterns? I know you've been obsessed with it for the last couple months but it's been everywhere since forever.

    backlash: the days of the commerce of the 1000+ dollar shoes. G&G, Lobbs, Kitons, Scafora, Dimitri Gomez, Corthay, et al when everyone and everyone was buying them, posting them, and flaunting them and they were all at full price.

    I don't remember these days. Skeptical of the black, too. [​IMG]

    yeah... full price? On SF? Maybe a pre-buzz phenomenon.

    They have gotten a bit ridiculous, especially with the runs of Ralph stuff from Woodbury showing up so much.

    I'd have put Barker Black at least at saturation. Unless there's some huge clearance sale.

    I've been wearing white shirts a lot recently, and have returned to knit ties over the past few weeks. I also ordered my first G&Gs a month or so back. No roped shoulders, thank you.

    I don't know if the white shirt thing is true; I just said that because I'd like it to be true. But I'm glad to hear you're wearing them more.

    My roped-shoulder sportcoat got a surprising amount of love last time I posted it. I imagine if someone came along with some really nice examples, he could win some converts.

    I'm already on the white-shirt bandwagon. My stripes are getting ignored of late.

    I wore one today with a sportcoat in today's WAYW and figured I might get called out for it. Such things are never done, I'm told.

    Glad others are seeing the bright white light of the white shirt. Maybe we really can start a trend.

    +1 on white shirts. I have six and laundering every weekend means lately its been plain white 3 or 4 days a week.

    As an aside, I see this thread becoming a hall of famer.

    i thought it was taboo on here to wear a white shirt with a sportcoat.


    All things i'd never think of, and have never thought of, pre style forum.
