    Castoffs of The Rich and Famous

    Something meaningless to ruminate on.... What happens to the clothes of famous people when the (presumably bespoke and high-end) clothes wear out, the owner dies, the owner gains/loses weight, fashions change, or they just get tired of them? I assume they discretely ship the clothes off to a...

    manners Returning a gift...from my wife!

    Hello, Gentlemen. It's been quite some time since I last posted on AAAC, but it's good to be back. A bit of a conundrum, here.... I very recently marked another birthday and my wife, in addition to a trip to an overnight trip to a spa and a piece of art I love, gave me a somewhat pricey money...

    Byron suit quality

    I'm curious if anyone on AAAC has had any experience with Byron suits? I like the cut and hear they're canvassed. But beyond that, I haven't heard much. Thank you.

    Bonobos quality?

    I've been poking around the Bonobos site and like a lot of what I've seen. I understand from a couple of previous threads that the sizing on trousers is inconsisent, but their customer service is outstanding. What I didn't see was any comment about the overall quality of Bonobos' merchandise...

    Herring Paddington Fit

    I am considering buying a pair of Herring Paddington monk-strap shoes (made by Loake). I apologize for the fairly general and vague question, but how is the the fit? I'm always leery of buying shoes online. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Any special clothes for Thanksgiving?

    Do you have anything special set aside to wear on Thanksgiving? We're having dinner with my wife's family this year, so it will be very casual. Brooks Brothers Hudson wide whale cords, a sweater and horse bit loafers for me...though I will (as usual) be overdressed! Jeans may be more in order.

    It's a well-known fact that sandwiches taste better when cut on a diagonal.:icon_smile_big: What say you?

    Double-Breasted Suits: In? Out? Coming back in style?

    Other than my DB navy blazer (which I rarely wear anymore), I haven't owned a DB suit in several years. However, I've noticed the style cropping up more and more in magazines. Could it be that DB is coming back into style? Your thoughts, please.

    Which former AAAC poster do you miss the most?

    The Interchange has gotten mighty quiet in recent months. Maybe this is a good thing, maybe not. Though it sometimes got ugly (especially when politics and religion came up), it sure added a bit of drama to the fora. I was going through old posts the other day and began to wonder which...

    Supreme court ruling on campaigns

    Any thoughts on this? https://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/22/us/politics/22donate.html?partner=rss&emc=rss I have to admit I am a little conflicted on this one. While the spectre of watching Exxon extol the virtues of one candidate over the other gives me chills, being the...

    Tie/shirt combo opinion, please

    I am considering buying a Black Watch bow tie to wear with a red gingham OCBD for church on Christmas Eve. I am planning to go casual this year (3/2 H Freeman navy flannel blazer, gray flannel trousers, brown bits...no suit). Would that tie/shirt combo work or should I stick with a striped...

    It's okay to wear jeans today

    Regardless how you personally feel about jeans, I think we could all agree that you could make an exception today: https://www.denimday.com/. Breast cancer has touched far too many of my family members and friends. This is a wonderful cause and it only costs $5. Let's save some breasts!

    RIP Allen Edmonds Thayer

    We were doing some shopping Saturday afternoon and I happened upon a department store having an Allen Edmonds trunk show. I talked briefly with the sales rep and he told me they plan to discontinue the Thayer monk strap in 1Q 2010. They are going to introduce a dressier single strap model with a...
