  1. Well,in the Ivy tradition exist also the charcoal herringbone sack suit.
    Perfect for a more formal wear!

  2. That is a great cover and very funny when you think about it.

  3. My current #1 item on my never-ending “To Buy” list: a light grey, unstructured herringbone sports coat. CC, do you have any recommendations?

  4. Yes, we “should know about the contemporary men’s wears in deed”.

    I don’t suppose I could get away with this at a white tie affair… If you received an invitation to a formal ball (full dress, the works), what would you do?

  6. White tie and tails and herringbone socks?

  7. I trust you’re joking, CC. White tie is even more of a set uniform than black tie. The purpose of both of them is for the men to present an elegant form that will set off the woman he is with. He cannot possibly do that if he is calling attention to himself with outlandish accessories.

    “In the matter of evening costume, you see,” I might be even more “hidebound and reactionary” than Jeeves.

  8. Cut some grosgrain or satin lapels and collar and velcro ’em on, you’re good to go.

  9. “Rugged?!!” Oh my…I’m at a loss for words.
