    Brooks Brothers sport shirts

    I typically buy Regent in number-sized BB and (15 1/2 33) and Milano on Letter-sized (M) I would imagine size S would be more like 14 1/2 neck.

    Awful quiet!

    Indiana got hot in a big hurry, but remains stormy. There was a tree down on the neighbor's garage. Then there was a guy up there with a chain saw. I could imagine SO many ways to maim or kill oneself doing that. I'm sure it will not be quiet Thursday. And the dogs will not be happy about it.

    A Study in Style: Shinzo Abe

    My one regret related to my time in Japan is that I didn't get some suits made by a tailor -- fiancé of a friend. His family had been in the tailor business for generations. I'm sure he would have made me something amazing. My sense was that tailor shops were a lot more numerous in Japan than...

    Bernhard oxford cloth shirts

    Looking at the size chart, S is 37in chest. M is 41-42. No mention of neck size in the chart. Can you comment on fit? The rest of the measurements suggest a rather generous cut to me.

    Items of 'classic' menswear you just don't like?

    At least some of my BB BF cuffs are 3". I just checked. And that's in size BB1.

    Items of 'classic' menswear you just don't like?

    Agreed. I don't get bit loafers, either.

    Items of 'classic' menswear you just don't like?

    That's funny, the one thing that I'm not wild about on my BB BF OCBDs is the very long cuffs.

    Löf & Tung anyone?

    Billy Crystal's "Fernando" said "It is better to look good than to feel good." But I must say, the above example is proving to be among the most comfortable of all the footwear choices in my closet.

    If you are willing to give gas another try, I love my Stihl FS130. The trick is to buy the very expensive pre-mixed gas. 95 octane. No alcohol. oil mixed in. Stabilizer also mixed in. They usually double your warranty if you buy a quantity at the same time as the equipment. The goat idea is a...

    I'm left wondering... If the goal is to design a lightweight suit to beat the summer heat, why go with a dark color?
