    Since we're derailing, does anyone know the story of how @upr_crust has so many different suits every day?

    Yeah, I know. She wears them much better than me. Sad, isn't it.

    I think it's pretty amaze that the same frames suit u both.


    I dislike box-check suits, particularly where the contrast is strong, as it is there. As an SC tho that cloth rocks. Lovely restrained look all over, and the puffed solid square is spot on imo.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I think those frames suit us both because we both have relatively wide faces. (Mine is pointy at the bottom, but wide nevertheless.)

    Thanks Pliny. He was not really interested in dressing (well, perhaps not in the way that we are) but always looked pretty good. I may have said before that two of my most prized possessions are his 1960s Tootal scarves - of which this is the nicest:

    Here is a better pic of the scarf. John Simons London shop has a good selection of used 1960s Tootal scarves and cravats.

    Gentlemen, I've been noticing your collars and I've a few questions:
    Can anyone tell me if these are considered a point collar or spread? Or is it a big point collar?

    Which one is the closest looking collar to the above photos?

    Buying from the website might be an option for Kid Nickels, but as he's in the western US, and Moss Bros. is a UK-based chain of stores, he might have some issues with fit if the clothes are not as described on the website.



    Simple - three things:

    1). Be really old

    2). Buy lots of stuff

    3). Wear it in rotation before you die.


    The collars that you showed were what in the US would be considered spread collars, albeit with fairly long points - closest to either 7 cm or 8.5 cm spread collar photos.

    It's unusually warm here in NYC, hence the lack of hat or overcoat today.

    Shirt & tie - Tyrwhitt
    Cufflinks - BB
    Braces - Lewin
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Shoes - Finsbury, Paris
