  • Bruce, do you typically coordinate your scarves with your tie, overcoat or suit jacket/sportcoat?

    I typically coordinate scarf to overcoat and hat, then, if it works with the tie and the suit, that's just gravy.

    Oh okay. I checked out the site, there are very nice scarves on there.
    Bruce, I have a quick question for you. I was caught in a little bit of a downpour this afternoon upon leaving the opera. I neglected to bring my umbrella with me. Anyways, there is some discoloration on my wool suit jacket around the shoulders and top of the chest (it looks lighter). Should it dry and get back to normal on its own, or should I take it to the cleaners? I have it hanging up on the cedar hanger.

    Bruce,

    Thanks for the reply. Just to make sure I understand you correctly, iron and flat and then fold it by hand or using an iron?

    Iron flat, fold by hand when putting the shirt on.
    Hey Crusty,

    Sorry if this is a stupid question. I just bought my first French cuff shirt at Brooks Brothers. I was wondering, should I press a crease into the cuff so when I fold it, it is crisp, or is it more in a sense just rolled?

    Dear Jeff,

    Were I you, I would iron the French cuff flat, and then fold it only when you wear it. I have my shirts laundered, and that is the method my laundry uses for them. Ironing the cuffs flat reduces the stress on the fabric at the point where it is folded back.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of French cuffed shirts.

    Yours, as always,

    Hi crusty, I was wondering why I can't find your pictures in the What Are You Wearing Today thread, Do you know what happened to them by any chance?

    I only posted pictures yesterday (12/24), not today (12/25). I am taking a well-deserved break today from being dressed up, and from posting photos.
    Hello upr crust , my name is Frank and I'm new to the forum and I just wanted to say hello and complement your on your great sence of style and taste .
    I love the way you pick out your wardrobe for the day and you really have a keen sence of what goes well with what , I dont want to seem patronizing but I just wanted to tell you so.
    We live somewhat close by and even on a day like today with your more relaxed look ,you still "pull it off " and look sharp.
    I'm headed out for a bagpipe lesson with the pipe major so I have to run but wanted to take a minute to say hello and tell you "well done old boy"
    All the Best ,Frank
    Thank you for that post U.C.
    There was nothing but derogatory tone in his comment IMHO.

    . . . what THIS gay guy is wearing is the following:

    Today - Penhaligon's Eau Sans Pareil (unfortunately, no longer made)

    In general - Penhaligon's Racquets, Castile, or Hamman Bouquet
    Trumper's Skye
    Floris Cefiro
    Roger & Gallet Eau de Cologne Extra-Vielle
    Patou for Men or Guerlain Heritage (but only in the dead of winter)

    Hope that this is of use and interest.
