    Thank you, Darling.
    And yes, I guess the Arizona sun didn't do much for me either.

    Zemke, you can post one of those photos; just cut off my head.

    6StringShooter, I found these shoes in Venice in November. I wear them all of the time.

    Hem, is it a new suit or did u go vintage again?
    Made to measure or designer?

    I'm a big fan of the brown suit look. Many people eschew brown as its not a power color like a blue suit. But surely its perfect for the classic minded.

    The doublebreasted suits you.

    tho it might be able to handle a littl nip in the waist as in your avatar's suit.

    It is a vintage, but I believe vintage circa 1985 or so! I had the jacket remade and the photo doesn't quite do it justice. The lens distorts a bit, but it has that slight pull that I like and it really couldn't be taken in anymore. The fit is perfect; anymore and it would be open at the bottom button.

    I like brown also, as stated above.

    Thanks for the nice comments, My Friend.

    Ok, what are the particulars. I could use a pair of those dress boots.

    Regards,

    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    Hello, Mr. Powers,
    I'm afraid they really are no particulars. I bought them from a small shop in Venice for 120 Euros.
    They're comfortable though and I like the color.

    Well, I'm terribly upset, HJ. It's still way too stinkin' hot here to even go near a suit, so here I am, nearly bursting at the seams to sport a sharp DB number again and what do I see? You lookin' a gazillion bucks and like you just stepped off the set of a 30's movie. Now I've really got the bug!

    The suit's a winning colour, and great lapels!

    Very good looking suit there Hem, the color goes good with those shoes. Let's cut the guy a little slack, he is in Boston in the dead of winter, so of course he's going to bleach out. The drape on the jacket is excellent.
    A wife in Vegas?, take my advice, that's like going to China with a sack of rice.

    Thanks Benny, I appreciate that! It won't be long when our situations are reversed!

    Very nice, I like it quite a bit. You are a master of the curled hand pose, like you used to be military at one point, thats one habit you never get out of.

    120 Euros for shoes, my goodness, I long for the days when I graduate from school and can afford to spend money like that.

    I can't even afford to have my blue pinstripe DB tailored, let alone my WWII Navy Uniform. Blah.
