    There's one in the regular Fashion Forum and there's one in the Temporary SF Forum. Should Trads have one of their own?

    I'm not sure what it means. Are we supposed to post the details of what we're presently wearing? Cheers, Harris

    Yes, it's kind of silly but you can get an idea of clothing combinations. I can't say as I would be a great participant as I frequently wear the same thing day in and day out with slight variation. E.G.

    Bills M1 cuffed in British khaki
    BB tattersal blues on white
    generic brown braided belt
    C&B brown wingtips
    timex on navy/red/navy band

    PS forgot, Barbour Beaufort (no liner 50F)

    Gross weather in the big city today, so:

    Bean navy Shetland sweater
    pink BB OCBD
    olive foulard BB tie
    khaki Bean cords
    Bean low-rise duck boots
    duffle coat

    No sportcoat, and I feel uneay about it.
