    What's going on with the site?

    I can access this forum, but whenever I attempt to visit either the Fashion forum, or the Trad forum, it shows me not logged in. And when I attempt to log in, I get a message saying "security error" and instructions to use the browser to go pack to the previous page, but that still leaves me not...

    Are better sartorial days ahead?

    A glimmer of light in the darkness? A spark to set the sartorial world alight? I have now noted two different politicians appearing at major public political events proudly flourishing pocket squares! :loveyou::happy: A personal favorite of mine, the pocket square has been mainly absent from...

    Storms Travel the Interstates.

    Literally! :cool: I mentioned this quite a few years ago, but was struck by it again today. Viewing NOAA Dopler radar in time lapse shows storming apparently form on, and then travel the Interstate highways from west to east with prevailing weather patterns during certain conditions. As...

    Carved, Reverse Painted Cufflinks

    Double sided, of course, as the swivel backed variety don't deserve our attention. :pic12337: These cufflinks continue to beguile me, even after ages, because they're potentially both beautiful and unique. Most are vintage/estate/antique, all terms for not recently made. They're known by a...

    Ancient Rome, Live!

    Really cool CG animation of ancient room based on archeology and historical fact. Beautiful, actually. Was shocked to find the city full of handsome, beautifully finished masonry and vivid colors. Very different from what can be found today, but I should have known the havoc 2 millennia of...

    An Elegant Young Man

    So atypical, so refreshing! No . . . . inspiring! :icon_cheers: Summer is the time for a more relaxed aesthetic when wearing suit and tie. Lighter colors, more relaxed details that can look out of place in a sober winter ensemble. Perfectly cut and worn, proper fitting suit of handsome...

    Suede Brushes

    I have used suede brushes to care for my suede footwear for 30+ years. They, along with a suede eraser, and more recently Tarrago Nano Protector, have formed the basis for my suede maintenance. Suede brushes help clean the suede and restore the nap. My first brush, as were then all suede...

    Umbrellas

    While strolling among particularly stylish gentlemen of a certain age it's impossible not to notice Francesco Maglia. And so I happened upon him while perusing images of well put together older gentlemen, or as I sometimes term men of roughly my same age; geezers. But not only is M. Maglia...

    Who wanted a corduroy suit?

    I recall it being discussed in a thread, but couldn't find it. As I recall, most were lamenting the difficulty of finding one, and to my experience they became uncommon at least 30 years ago. I think it was also pointed out that to have a decent corduroy suit (Or jacket.) you need decent...

    Old Brooks Shirt

    Don't know that many will find this of interest, but it tugs at my fondness for things past. Wife was purging things from storage when she came upon an outgrown Brooks shirt of mine from somewhere around 20 - 22 years ago. It's a blue chambray tab collar in exact collar and sleeve length...
