I don't have them on my shirts so I'm genuinely curious why you find them impractical.
i thought they did that for a reason for bonds character.
The cocktail cuff tends to catch on things much easier than a French Cuff with a link to keep the turn backed fabric neatly cinched in. Maybe you need to be smooth like JB to wear them
I have also heard them referred to as Neapolitan cuffs and as I am living here for a few years I might be able to get away with a few. Perhaps on a simple pale blue shirt they may add a small touch.
I am not an overtly showy guy- but I am all for a tasteful flourish here and there. These cuffs seem like a reasonable allowance- but I thought I'd ask for your thoughts- I appreciate your responses!
The Grammys? Haha no I don't know, but yesterday some artists looked really really bad.
You might well think that. I couldn't possibly comment.
Strange that you should ask this- my wife and I were just talking this morning-
We receive packages from Japan pretty often from my in-laws. They have all arrived in a reasonable window, but we have to pay a customs fee. But here's the stinger- my mum-in-law has been paying this fee already, but the delivery company has been charging us again. Assholes.
PM me if you want to discuss this further. I might be able to be of some assistance.
P.S. I have a good friend from Japan who is a sushi chef in London. If you are into sushi let me know.
Very bold. Looks very fun! Is the tie pin decision inspired by Phineas Cole?
Just in case the question is missed by posting it elsewhere - I'm wondering where does silk reppe fall in the formality scale?
I'm not talking about repp stripes, but silk reppe construction, as in http://www.drakes-london.com/woven-solid-reppe-silk-bespoke
I notice my wardrobe is in desperate need of burgundy/wine coloured ties, which would pair well with everything I have, but until I get some money, all I have is a solid burgundy reppe silk tie, which is actually the first tie I ever bought. Would it be coherent to wear it with odd jackets? I'm thinking it's a bit too shiny and thus formal, but I may be wrong.
Shirt is pale blue. Suit, not SC
^ That square...
Thanks. Now I'm just waiting for my beatdown...
Square fail or no?
Suit is a lighter navy, not midnight as it appears in the photo,:
Also curious on thoughts about this:
Those have been slow in coming.
So if it's the 0520 is not greyish at all, what does Manton and Foo have against it as a blazer fabric? Seems like a great choice to me. I don't want new England navy, but am particularly looking for something lighter, that can work as a day time blazer and suit. Blogger blue if you will.
