I've been after a cardi like Berlinmad posted in WDYBT, tried one on a couple of days before that...fitted great, 4ply cashmere. £500ish. Toyed with getting one but then got an overcoat, which tbf, I did need. I've been fighting myself with getting the cardi ever since Berlinmads post. I don't need it but I want it. But then how many times am I going to wear it? Too much money for sitting in home in, I wear a boiler suit for work. So it'd be down the pub or out. Which means it'd end up getting used like the 10 sports coats I have in a loose rotation. I had more or less accepted it was the cardi or the overcoat.Absolutely. I know that we've discussed this issue over the years, but social media and discussion fora (clothes, watches, shoes, other consumables) really exacerbates things. It plays into our need to keep up with other people, to have what other people have, to keep on acquiring things.

If you've got kids, what did you do on the nappy front?
I've lost count of the number of times that someone has started with Allen Edmonds or Loakes shoes and then, within six months, moved on to purchasing Edward Green, JL Paris or St Crispins. Or, in watch terms, been happy with Citizen or Seiko but in short order decided they "need" multiple Rolex models and start telling everyone their "grail" is Patek Philippe.
Mr. “Permanent Style” is now down to trawling old episode of Friends to find a Tom Selleck character in ill-fitting JC Penny clothes who has been his life long inspiration and ‘style hero’.He looks like he got dressed at a JC Penny. What’s “luxurious” about this in any way, shape, or form?
Yes I saw that. The right type of grey shirt and other nonsense. Plus or minus moustache.Mr. “Permanent Style” is now down to trawling old episode of Friends to find a Tom Selleck character in ill-fitting JC Penny clothes who has been him life long inspiration and ‘style hero’.
Isn’t that one of the defining characteristics of an American sit-com?But it was terribly sickly sweet.
Cheers was good for a time and Fraser, which I came late to, was excellen. But they all lose steam after several series.That is true but a lot of popular era-defining shows all had theirs.
Myself, I enjoyed Cheers (and even more, Fraser) but the whole Sam/Diane thing and Fraser/ Lillith thing was meh
Not sure now, as I've not watched one for over two decades now. I've not watched the Brit equivalents either.Isn’t that one of the defining characteristics of an American sit-com?
Even though the 308 has about the same power-to-weight ratio as the modern Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ, it's still a very cool car.
I mean it's like any vintage car. It's about the vibe.
I was grabbing coffee with some work acquaintances the other week who are also somewhat into cars, and the one truth we all agree on is how much new cars are insanely better to drive in basically every respect.
But you can't deny the cool.
Fully agree with this.My dream car would be something with a cool and vintage shell with completely modern guys. I’ve seen some old Italian sports cars, 50s cruisers and 70s muscle cars retrofitted with an electric engine. Hopefully we will see more of this.
I tried doing this on a more modest scale with the two ‘project cars’ when I was younger, but it seems a lot more technologically possible and affordable now.
There was a fad for them in the early 1990s, I even went up to that vintage dealer in Wigan who specialised in them. A nice little grey one, like the one Ted Bundy use to drive, it was nearly GBP 7,000. Then like you I traveled in one coming back from a gig in the middle of winter. It's not a driving experience, it's something that National Socialism dreamt up and only they would want to.I used to really like VW Beatles, til I traveled 30 miles in one. Chirst on a bike I was still shaking like a junkie doing turkey a week later.
This is the DISAGREEABLE post where you post ugly and poor fitting garments that others post online.Hello all, not sure if this is the right place but here we go anyway. I'm just went in for a penultimate fitting. This is what it looks like thus far. I feel like it's somewhat off so any feedback is welcome. The back is getting cleaned up and the trouser length is also getting adjusted. Buttoning point also seems too low? Thanks!
