    The only mirrors we have in our 1928 apartment are from 1928, so I apologize for the poor picture clarity of the larger shot.

    A Trad "What are you Wearing"

    That's a beautiful Tweed sport coat (and outfit) from Monday. You should post it in the Tweed thread. Thank you re Tuesday's outfit - I love the white bucks and grey flannels. It's at the top of my Ivy list of things that I wish would come back. I like today's Chukkas. Well done all week.

    I hope he can do the raglan sleeves for you as they are such a wonderful part of the overall look. That said, I have a Pendleton one without raglan sleeves that I love..

I could "feel" that there was a better story behind it - meaning the Motion Picture Production Code had mangled it - so I...

    I'd need to see the sport coat in person to really know it's texture to say if it can hold up to jeans, but either way, the jeans should not be paint splattered. While I admit to being a fan of a sport coat with jeans, the look requires the right sport coat (heavy texture, rough hewn, etc.) and...

    The Tweed itself is stunning. Love to find something like that today (which could then join all my other sport coats hanging idle in my closet). Appreciate the PS comment :) . If not a pair of tortoiseshell glasses (I like that idea), how 'bout a watch chain looped from the lapel button to a...

    I agree with all this and thank you for the note of appreciation. I've only been paying it forward to your outstanding work on the Khaki History thread. That Ike corduroy jacket is outstanding. I'd like one of those. And there is a small chance it pops up as Ralph's team does go through old...

    I remember seeing this one when it came out and liking it, but don't remember much about it other than that Uma Thurman was gorgeous. I did notice it was in rotation on HBO, so with your endorsing post, I think I'll give it a second watch.
