    These men are all millionaires but won’t get tailored suits

      The dichotomy of the tailored suit.

      A rich person hasn't the time to get measured, so they send in measurements.

      A poor person makes time, because it'll be the only good suit he has.

        Plenty of rich people have tailored suits. This twitter tier simplification is silly.

      old money vs. new money

      old money will have perfectly tailored brooks/j. press suits with tassel loafers duck-taped so the soles don't fall off

      new money will have ill-fitting armani suits they paid thousands of dollars for off-the rack because they don't know anything about tailoring because they grew up poor

            Good wool is surprisingly comfortable, wether worn in a hot or cold climate.
            Supposedly, if you wear linen or cotton under the wool, you wind up with a natural evaporative cooling that is way more effective than might be imagined.

            Your skin doesn't need to breathe unless you're wearing fricking latex or something. A normal woolen suit is not an impediment to your skin breathing.

            This is British “fitted” tailoring.
            This type of tailoring may not be “tight” but it is much tighter than a lot of other tailoring, and requires certain areas like the crotch to be much more closely cut.
            It can also require significant alteration if you lose or gain weight.
            Some wearers like this, lots don’t.

        >t. classless poorgay
        Most people will not look at a tailored suit and say "gee whiz, that's a tailored suit? Wow!" but if a suit fits really poorly, it gives off a subconsciously slovenly impression. Same idea as an ironed dress shirt; no one cares that it's ironed, but when it's not ironed it sticks out. It's called the idea of "long term thinking" or "thinking beyond surface level"

      These are at most upper middle class concerns, really rich people will wear shitty suits or even t-shirts and hoodies these days. It also serves as a signal of how little they have to care for conventions.

        Yeah, exactly. In the last century in England, there was a big discussion about 'U (upper class) and non-U', which found the middle class tended to use 'fancier', French words for things, in attempt to sound more refined, whereas the upper class stick to the same plain and traditional words that the working classes also use.

      >These men are all millionaires but won’t get tailored suits
      Form fitting “tailored” or “bespoke” suits, aren’t a universal fashion, and are somewhat specific to certain regional tailoring styles.
      British bespoke suits for instance, are routinely tightly tailored to a person’s physique.
      Not all “proper” tailoring is done this way, even when suits are very specifically made or adjusted for an individual.
      Spielberg’s clothing looks like it was adjusted and sized for him, and is typical of certain older European suit cuts.
      It sort of looks like the way the clothes were cut in the old Tintin books, which might be intentional, because Spielberg is and was a huge fan of Tintin.
      The loose tailoring of the other two suits
      Was not untypical during the 1990s, and honestly looks like the tailoring I saw people wearing at private schools in the 1990s and later, being worn by students, teachers, administrators, and even some parents, and these were not usually poor individuals, or individuals unfamiliar with etiquette or fashion.
      If they wore suits like this, it was for a particular image or because they found the clothes comfortable.
      These schools incidentally probably cost $50,000 per year per pupil or mire nowadays.

        All I know is in JP1 they were comparing them to birds but it wasn't until JP3 that they finally started adding feathers to the raptors and that's when I realized society had collapsed.

            Exactly. As soon as he died they stepped in and trampled over his ideas and warped them to fit their own. Hence why I said Michael Crichton did not support the feather agenda.

    I mean he's not great but sometimes he's good. In an interview David Mitchell (wrote Cloud Atlas) once said that authors have these whack a moles in their brain, ideas they can't get past, that they obsess over and always write about. I have em for sure, for Mitchell it's predacity amongst other things, for Crichton it's rich people channelling their evil into... theme parks. Seriously. Jurassic Park, Timeline, Westworld. It's all about being rich, evil and owning a theme park. A strange whack a mole obsession to be sure. But yeah some of his stuff is really fun, I personally love Timeline. Sometimes it's good to just read a fun story that's fast paced and imaginative even if it's not well written and doesn't make a lot of sense.

      The bee-in-bonnet I really noticed in Crichton's work is the b***hy aggressive careerist woman, often the MC's ex.

      I haven't checked but I always assumed he went through a bad divorce somewhere along the line.

        How is one man this based?
        >Crichton received an M.D. from Harvard Medical School in 1969 but did not practice medicine, choosing to focus on his writing instead. Initially writing under a pseudonym, he eventually wrote 26 novels
        >Crichton was also involved in the film and television industry. In 1973, he wrote and directed Westworld, the first film to use 2D computer-generated imagery. He also directed Coma (1978), The First Great Train Robbery (1978), Looker (1981), and Runaway (1984). He was the creator of the television series ER
        >During his undergraduate study in literature, he conducted an experiment to expose a professor who he believed was giving him abnormally low marks and criticizing his literary style.[9]:4 Informing another professor of his suspicions,[10] Crichton submitted an essay by George Orwell under his own name. The paper was returned by his unwitting professor with a mark of "B−".[11] He later said, "Now Orwell was a wonderful writer, and if a B-minus was all he could get, I thought I'd better drop English as my major."
        >In 2006, Crichton clashed with journalist Michael Crowley, a senior editor of the magazine The New Republic. In March 2006, Crowley wrote a strongly critical review of State of Fear, focusing on Crichton's stance on global warming.[77] In the same year, Crichton published the novel Next, which contains a minor character named "Mick Crowley", who is a Yale graduate and a Washington, D.C.–based political columnist. The character was portrayed as a child molester with a small penis.[78]
        >Crichton later summarized his intellectual property legal cases: "I always win."
        >Crichton became well known for attacking the science behind global warming. He testified on the subject before Congress in 2005.[97]
        >When drafting a novel, which would typically take him six or seven weeks, Crichton withdrew completely to follow what he called "a structured approach" of ritualistic self-denial. As he neared writing the end of each book, he would rise increasingly early each day, meaning that he would sleep for less than four hours by going to bed at 10 p.m. and waking at 2 am.
        >In 1992, Crichton was ranked among People magazine's 50 most beautiful people.
        >He married five times. Four of the marriages ended in divorce

        Rich, famous, handsome, creative harvard educated gentle giant doctor. More of a gigachad than the actual gigachad.
