Photo worthy, for sure, but if I had that waistline, I'd lose the braces and be wearing a belt! For some of us, the dandyism suggested by our daily threads is but skin deep and the redneck in us runs all the way to the core. ;)
Ah, but t'would be sad, as then you'd miss out on all these dandy rascals!

The thing about Paul Stuart clothes is that whether or not a particular outfit or item appeals to you, you know they are well-made clothes from quality fabrics. I like some of the pics and items in this thread a lot and some less so, but almost every item and outfit looks thoughtful, of high quality and distinctive.

Yes. I prize what they've been also for their former sense of whimsy and willingness and ability to improvise within a traditional context.

FWIW, I have 6 or 7 of Paul Stuart's silk knits, and happily, they were purchased when their knits were 3" or 3 1/4. Lately I believe they're 2 3/4", and that small amount makes a huge difference in appearance for me. And they're not just silk knit but silk crochet knit in Italy and have marvelous depth of texture and shine. Only problem is they now charge about double what they did 10 years ago.

As evidently the weather gods have decided that spring is unnecessary in NJ this year. we have regressed from the promise of spring to a return of winter. (No doubt a prelude to lurching into scorching summer.) But it keeping with the temperatures and general ambiance, it at least offer an excuse the break out the cool weather clothing a last time. May I introduce you to Dr. Griffin -
