Think you got a bargain there matey. As someone who doesnít like gold and never wears it Iím glad you got them in silver.

Iíve seen silver Ray Ban Olympia Deluxe II on eBay and they look very similar but Iím reluctant to pull the trigger without trying them on, and doing so wonít be easy as theyíve been discontinued for a while. Not like Iím short of shades so I can be patient!

Same here. The idea of a luxary trainer is as weird as taylor-made jeans or dive watches for 5000 quid.

I agree about the other two but you can pry my submariner off my cold dead wrist!

I absolutely detest this look.

Hard three is the traditional Mod look. Top two buttons fastened.

Three roll 2.5 is what is often used to describe a jacket lapel that rolls to the top button. Most of these you can choose to fasten the top two buttons, or the middle button only which can display an elegant roll around the position of the top button. I have a few made like this.

But these three roll two things are really just a two button jacket with a superfluous and ugly button hole buggering up the look of the lower lapel. They are usually pressed flat so donít even show that elegant roll. Just awful, their popularity, especially among many styleforum regulars, baffles me. I especially donít like the way the top waist buttonhole is often cut and stitched in a very dis-similar way to the upper chest lapel button hole.

Decent them Syd.
I have Leviís K-1 Crammerton chinos (had to get the legs slimmed) and a pair of heavy Leviís aviator chinos too but neither sees much wear here in the land of endless summer!

Let me get this right.
I can't buy a pair of trousers from Suit Supply, that don't taper like a pair of "tights", yet this is the option they've come up with???! :o

I'm sure this is aimed at the hipster crowd who now sport loafers w/o socks and trousers hemmed 3 inches too short...

I was hoping that particular strain of fashion felony was on its way out now.
Mind, youíve just described the entire male population of a Suitsupply salesmen. I even asked in the Madison Avenue branch if it was an officially mandated dress code that they all wear high water strides. I was told Ďnoí but I find it hard to believe that with all the decent tackle they have access to that they all CHOOSE to look like losers in a Gerry Lewis lookalike contest.

I noticed I got an e mail from Suitsupply advertising their new suits with a choice of normal strides or those gruesome drawstring monstrosities.

But even more egregious that that is the link above having a bloody ginger as the model.

Oh , you are on thin ice with a gingerist comment like that. .

I know youíre form north of the border but please tell me youíre not a soul-less fire crotch too?

My sister is a full on Duracell. I have ginger genes. Thatís why I had to marry an African to try and clear that out of my blood. I was crapping it in the delivery room in case the bairn popped out with a giant luminous orange fro.

For those into corduroys I saw a nice looking rusty coloured corduroy trucker in the recent J Crew releases. Also what I think they call a Ďchore coatí - which I refer to as an Ďice cream jacketí - three button cotton drill unstructured blazer, in a few colours. Both reasonably priced but as most people in this forum are UK / Europe based Iím not sure if the delivery costs from the US put them out of reach.
