    Funeral music recommendations

    Schubert: Ave Maria. Whether played or sung, Schubert's ‘Ave Maria’ is the perfect piece of music for remembering a loved one. A musical adaptation of the traditional Roman Catholic prayer, Schubert’s tune is both calming and uplifting. It has been performed by countless artists over the years...

    My wife makes mine so I'm not able to help but, I'm told that Darcy, have a good collection of fine quality men's shirts.

    " The Great British Hat Makers "

    Niklas, if the signature annoys you, cover it with masking tape, as others have said, removing it isn't worth the risk.

    SOLD *** 1950s Royal Stetson - 7 1/4 Bluegrass

    Let me second that, fabulous hats and such beautiful colours. I know that it's best to ignore the page, when you have a seven and three quarters hat size, you're in a small minority. It's why I get my hats made bespoke. Great hats though Bill.

    You know you are getting old when:

    There's getting old and there's getting old. Tonight we are off out to a 30's & 40's inspired dance come cabaret event. When I think back to how my grandparents dressed when I was young compared to us, now we are of grandparent age, I just couldn't imagine either of my grandmothers wearing the...

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    It's such a common slang word in British/English I didn't think about how other English speaking countries perceive it. Nick also means, to steal. It's also a small abrasion, whether that's on the skin or any surface. The phrase “nick of time” is in reference to a measurement of time, as in a...

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    Pain in the arse? The British influence gets everywhere. Not funny though, losing a debit card, I hope that the card was all you lost.

    Hawaiian shirts and fedoras

    That's a great "look," the hat and sunglasses compliment the effect. And the shirt, how could I not like the shirt?

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

    Have you ever heard: "Whoa?" That was the reaction to my attire at work this morning. By and large I'm a collar & tie type of manager, but today, with the weather unable to decide if it's wet or sunny, I was bold enough to wear the shirt that I posted in The Hawaiian shirts & Fedoras thread. It...

    Great photo Edward, you are almost peering over the rim of your specs, I'm sure that's an academic look. My headteacher used to do that, and the stare...............................pure napalm. (Loving "The Chap" logo.)

    Putting it all together

    Flow is, as you say, harmonious, pleasing to the eye. Black is often avoided to prevent your perceptive observance of looking clownish, but if you follow the flow as Belfast Boy suggests, you get an appearance that you might be surprised by. The hat is a natural straw colour, you can call it...

    So good to see your recovery progressing Bill. That Lowey Leghorn looks familiar, I'm sure I have seen that, or something like it. Tina had a look and reminded me of her vintage pattern catalogue. That looks like a croquet mallet that the fellow on the right is holding. How's your croquet Bill...

    Putting it all together

    Compliments to you on finding this thread, the last entry before your's being 2014. Spezzato style can work but I do take Belfast Boy's focal point comment. This is how I mix a multicoloured outfit, notice that all the colours are from a similar spectrum going from the dark brown of the hat to...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

    Do I like double breasted with trousers that have cuffs? Is the Pope a catholic? But in this photo the trousers should have been worn a little higher to prevent the wrinkling around the ankles. You might just see that the cuffs are turned up. And just for Max, the outfit is topped off with a...

    If you quote it in pounds stirling, it doesn't seem so expensive: £4.9K-£6.2K

    Oh yes, oh very much the sin of covet, yes. Tell you what Stefan, all fabulous as ever but what is an absolute scene stealer is that lovely grey jacket with feint white pin stripes in the first two photos. Part of a suit maybe? Heaven's gates are firmly closed to my entrance: Thou shalt not...

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    That is just about the most depressing post that I have ever read on this forum. Strange as it may seem, I warm to the sentiment behind it.

    Love it, absolutely love it. But there again, I might just be a tad biased. Look in the Hawaiian shirts & fedora thread.

    Hawaiian shirts and fedoras

    The pin-up girls in camouflage draws many a comment, but it's not until I suggest that a closer look might be revealing that I get: "Oh yeah, that's amazing!" Tina made the khaki baggies too, but then again, you probably guessed that. The work in progress as it was being made was photographed...

    For those still trying to figure out syrup, it's comical rhyming slang: "Syrup of Fig--Wig." Should you ever see someone whose toupee is like this: It's known as: "A dodgy syrup."
