    Am I a clothing addict?

    It's easy to read newspaper headlines wrong. Every time I see "IMF blah blah blah" my mind reads "Impossible Mission Force blah blah blah". I knew a guy who used to work at a shipping gazette here and put the word "reefer" (refrigerated shipping container) into as many headlines as possible...

    Tie Etiquette

    The main point of the comment was that I got better treatment/service because I was wearing a tie (and a suit). Wine is served even in cattle class, as is beer and spirits. Come to think of it, cattle class also has cheese and crackers, though they're those jatz-type things in little plastic...

    I was treated like "business class".

    What is wrong with these shoes

    When I first starting wearing nice (and pricey) leather shoes I also noticed a few regrettable knocks around the toe cap area. For a couple days I paid a lot of attention to how I walked and what I did with my feet. I noticed I was knocking them going up stairs, hitting the toe on chair legs...

    Conditioning Suede?

    It is without a doubt a very worthy addition. I once had coffee spilt on my favourite EG suede wholecuts and after a quick shampoo they were good as new. Plus, even with regular brushing and cleaning, the colour darkens/dirties after a while and the Omni'nettoyant cleans all that out. You can...

    Who else works out regularly - like Upr_crust (and me)?

    I was getting into running right before I got my dog and had to replace it with walking. With at least an hour, sometimes more, of walking a day, there's not much extra time for running. Gyms in Hong Kong are no place to be, so I try to fit in a workout routine at home whenever I can. Lot of...

    What was the make of your bag? LE is Lands End?

    Hardsided briefcase tips

    Thanks for the responses guys. I currently have a softsided briefcase (with unpadded interior) from Satchel & Page that I used for regular day-to-day work. I like the simplicity (and working buckles). However, it's a little rough/rugged in finish (can't really tell from the photo) so I'm...

    I also read red and was confused until Mr.Inappropriate corrected you (and me in the process).

    Tie Etiquette

    This. I like to wear a suit and tie when I fly, I've been upgraded more than once on flights where cattle-class was overbooked. Other passengers I saw were in jeans and tees or something similar and I believe it was the way I dressed that directly led to me getting the upgrade over another...

    Hardsided briefcase tips

    Was this an issue with your particular case, (e.g. a thin width) or something common to this type of bag?

    Hardsided briefcase tips

    I couldn't find any previous threads on this, and I think the trad forum is the more appropriate place to post this, so... I'm looking to getting a hardsided bag to take to work with me. I currently have a leather briefcase but it's softsided. I'm not sure of the exact differences between a...

    Bernoulli, you don't see a cuffed jacket everyday! Very nice. Black tie is fun for the clothes alone, I wish I could go to more. I even thought of joining the masons here just so I had a chance to buy a few more DJs and get to wear them every month. Otherwise I have no reason to get a DB DJ, a...

    Thanks for the info Upr. I did notice they looked quite large for studs, but seemed to carry the theme with the links and ring very nicely.

    What Are You Wearing Today?

    Working from home again. Continuing last week's experiment with casual clothes. As I don't have much of a casual winter wardrobe, and my casual suits are all for summer and not even suitable for layering due to the materials (linen, seersucker, etc., which would look silly in winter) I have been...
