    New USA TV Series "SUITS" - The AAAC verdict...

    nice series ... the suits indeed look very Tom Ford. A bit like Quantum of Solace for Craig. I am not sure its Purple Lable. Good idea with the ticket pocket. I like "ordinary" lapels, though. An you have to notice that Harvey wears one suit a film (usually). Shirts are a bit bomring...

    Blue shoes and England's elite

    never ... seen anybody high up in the UK wear a pair of blue shoes. Oxfords or loafers - slip ons - black. I have a pair of dark navy Gucci loafers though, very nice. But they are becoming darker and darker with age and polish. Andrey

    What Crombie coat from the current range emulates the '60's 'Mod' look?

    i think ... the olive slim fit with a ticket pocket is more interesting . if you look at modern British gangster films - G.Ritchie etc. - olives are seen throughout. Andrey p.s. and check out Gangster No.1 - i think they had interesting coats on too
