    Oh, and one more thing. Those aren’t wrinkles. It’s the way the fabric falls. Soft, drapy corduroy. So comfortable to wear. Thank you.

    Thanks, Fred and all of you for such nice comments. And yes, I guess wrinkles are the price you pay when you live out of a suitcase. Although to tell the truth, I wasn’t very concerned about it because honestly, I’m a bit of a sloppy dandy. I’m more concerned that I did not have time to have them cuffed at the tailor. I do like a cuffed cord. Until the next time….

    As someone who has followed both UP and SP independently, it is a real thrill to see the two combined this way.  Awesome shot FEC!

    Wrinkles in shirt or pants denote an individual who spends his time with His hands busy multiplying the fruitd of his labor. Beware tge primly pressed man who sits at a desk, doing nothing but managing from a screen. Great shot, great wrinkly pants, fabulous all around!

    I just got a Brooks Brothers bow tie, and though I;m a girl I love borrowing from the boys and pairing it with a cute skirt.,

    Love his cords!

    Ha! A banker from Europe (as opposed to the United Kingdom - important!) going out in Knightsbridge. At first glance I thought that guy looked like a young Colin Firth.
    Trousers colour is perfection

    He looks stellar, but everyone take a second look at the woman in the background. I love when ladies take neckwear and make it their own. Even though she’s not in focus that bow tie still pops.

    looking good as always, however i think the Gucci bit loafers are one of few things that look better in black.
