    Geezer Power!

    Looks like a ZZ Topp band member. Saw those guys play just after their first album came out. Would that have been around 1972?

    Yeah, the tie just doesn't quite go with the jacket. But, love the jacket.

    Yup, that's why his is my favorite design house.

    I'm sort of on the fence about madras. But, this looks nice.

    Pipe smokers galore in this one.I was born in the 50's and my dad occasionally smoked a pipe then.

    Future of Dressing Well

    I always dressed better than the norm where I worked, which was a professional setting. Yet, I was always the only guy in a tie or jacket. So, around here the casualization of wardrobe has been in full effect for some time. However, the Congress critters seem to dress up. :D

    Well, I've got the beard and around 65 pipes to go with it.

    Being a pipe smoker, I've noticed so many of the ads in this thread feature pipe smokers. Goes to show how that was far more common in the 50's than it is these days.

    A club tie with a trucker jacket is a no for me. Once owned a trucker jacket nigh on to 40 years ago.

    The pair of glasses I recently picked up are a departure from my pattern of picking up traditional frames-oval wire rims or Ray Ban clubmaster-type with tortoise shell. I picked up a rectangular translucent frame with a light gray tint. Stems are black in the front half of the stem and gray in...

    RL suede jackets are some of the nicest coats he does. When I see 1, I tend to love it, but I'd never afford the asking price.

    What should be my first classic hat?

    Yup, I get the occasional "nice hat" when I'm out and about wearing a fedora-primarily from the young. :)

    It's TWEED Season!

    Round glasses don't look right on my face. Just had a new pair made as my prescription had changed. Now need some distance correction as opposed to my years of wearing them just to read. I wouldn't hang my glasses from a jacket pocket like that, however, as there is a great likelihood I'd forget...

    I was just perusing the RL site-what can I say? I love his clothes. OK, have long been used to how badly over-priced much of his clothes are. But, have just seen an all-time whopper. A Purple Label cashmere polo coat, (lovely as it is). for a whopping $15.000. That's almost as much as we plan to...

    Interesting hypothesis, which makes some sense.

    Forget pairing those jeans with any jacket. Even as casual wear, I wouldn't wear them. While I'll hang onto a tattered pair just in case there's some messy work to be done, those would get tossed before they reach that stage.

    For some years now locally have seen few folks wear jackets and ties.

    Looks quite like 1 of my only 2 Polo shirts, though my little blue polo player on it is blueish.

    That is a bit of an assault to the eyes.
