    New vlog up....a review of the QBox subscription service...

    Well that was another disappointing QBox. I've never understood these subscription services and have never been tempted by LootCrate or Japan Crate. Too much of a crap shoot about what you'll get.

    Love the honest videos.

    Still looking forward to your review of your Tom Ford Spectre PTS suit.

    Great video as usual David.
    Though looked like a bunch of useless junk in my opinion (but you know why they say, one many junk is another man's treasure) ;)

    Wow... this classic quote is kind of ruined by modern word usage. :#

    Great video, by the way, David. Looking forward to hearing more about that camera pen!

    Terrific review, David. {[]

    The suit looks spectacular. It is a beautiful suit. I think it fits you better than what Craig wore in the PTS. His trousers looked more skinny than slim.

    Congrats on finding it at a great price (for Tom Ford).

    One thing I really love about ajb007 is how we try to help one another acquire various items. Regarding Bond clothing, members have alerted me when a desired item in my size turns up on eBay, and I've done the same for them.

    Nice review, David. Always refreshing to see a discussion of Craig's suits without the pedantic negativity that, like comments under online news stories, has crowded out more reasonable discussions and posters on some style forums online.

    I have to say that this suit has really grown on me. I have a similar pattern (but not cut) from J Crew without the windowpane overlay, but I like how it looks here the more that I see it. I've not tried on any Tom Ford suits in person but have twice almost bought them online from the 'bay. I think that you and I are very similar builds (5' 8-3/4", 42" chest 32" waist) - which fit or base is this suit? I recently bought a Zegna black and grey shepherd's check suit and I had to size up to a 40S, so I'm extremely grateful that I found one in a store before buying one online! The 40S fits me almost identically to the suit that you're wearing here...oh, to have standardized sizing!

    In terms of unbuttoning the last sleeve button being "snobbish" - here's an interesting way to assess that. How many people have come up to you in the real world and said "Wow, I really loved that suit and thought you looked fantastic until I saw that you unbuttoned that last sleeve button. Now you look like a douche to everyone here!"? I'm guessing that this is the type of thing (pedantic negativity as discussed) that never occurs in the real world.

    (In fact, I've had people comment on my last sleeve button being undone in a favourable manner; one woman told me that she never would have known that they were surgeon's cuffs otherwise and that made her realize that the suit didn't just look great but was also well-made. I guess I just could have found ways to shove my wrists under her nose until she noticed if instead I kept all the buttons done up...)

    Loved this...Great vlog {[]

    Another great video David. Hilarious opening! Good solid reviews of both items. I too am a huge fan of the way the TF polo hangs and wears. Ever thought of doing a review of the TF polo as it is so rare? I would love to get the details on it because I've always thought of getting a Sunspel tailored to fit like the TF polo. I keep analyzing the video to try and figure out how it does what it does, what the cut is like, etc...

    I second JB's request... would love to see more detail on that TF polo.. can't find any info online

    From the video that TF polo almost looks like it hangs more like a dress than a shirt or was it just some of the angles the video was shot at?

    Great question, David. -{ -{ -{ And you know that the man knows he's a clothes horse. :D

    Great video David. Very captivating. Craig knew he was going to get these questions and he tried his best to give nothing away. I share your thoughts at the end. It must be great to see him in person. I am in awe of you sir. {[]

    Nice vid.

    I'll be honest Dave, I'm not a clothes guy so I don't watch every one of your vids but whenever I do I always find them entertaining and informative.

    My favourite episode has to be reviewing the FE breather props.... ;)
