    Well, you should of course fly to Naples. That's really the only place you can buy clothing these days. Airfare is cheap these days.

    Disagreeable Menswear Post Of The Day

    Are you suggesting that some don't like standing in front of industrial installation art? I think the other one posted was in front of a bunch of curing meats CURED — Charcuterie, Salumi in San Antonio, Texas.

    As promised. Spanish sleeve thrown in for good measure.

    For variety. Always looking out for ways to drop the level of formality in a jacket and tie (short of ditching the tie). It's a look I think I've liked in the past, and there are plenty of associated looks that I can't stand. Like the inverted collar propped up by the jacket lapel. Just awful...

    I think I'll probably wear an OCBD unbuttoned, with a tie, at some point in the near future. Though there are many things about sprezzatura that bug me, this has never been one of them.

    I like the way the lion is looking at the man in the leopard suit.

    It is an excellent tie. As long as you keep making ties, people will still be buying them. --- I think when I joined SF, maybe 1 out of every 10 threads was an AV thread. Now it is closer to 1 out of every 5 (at the moment, it's exactly 10/50 on the front page). But throw in the threads...

    Kamakura Better than most (at least tat that angle). I'll experiment with what I have, but I doubt I'll ever get more OCBD's until these wear out. Just like spreads more. When they do wear out, I'll take a look at Kamakura (though RTW shirts rarely fit me. Got a thick proletariat neck).

    Yeah, if I'm not happy with it after pushing the tie higher up into the collar around the neck, the OCBD's will go back to being worn tieless. Don't know if a bad collar roll = disagreeable provided everything else works (and I think it does, parrot included, though it could be a bit more...

    Ask A Quick Question

    I'm pretty much stuck with dark navy windowpane fresco or navy peak lapel flannel. I don't know which would be more inappropriate for a funeral.

    Did your father influence your interest in men's dress?

    My dad's a solar physicist and sort of dresses like one. Generally a Land's End or Brooks Brothers (Land's End as I was growing up, Brooks Brothers now) shirt tucked into dark jeans or crisp chinos (he finds ironing relaxing. Depending on the whether, SAS loafers or Birkenstocks with dark gold...

    I think he just walked under it. I know, I know, low hanging fruit.

    Take away the chain and the square, I'd like this a lot. With the doubling up of the stripes, I think squareless would have been the right call here. As is, it's too busy despite a solid jacket.

    Cloth Halp.

    Thanks! Let me know the price. And I appreciate the offer to send the swatch; I may take you up on that at a later date (assuming you still have it)
