 Motherf....  I've looked at Loro Piana clothing in Japan previously, but never really paid attention to their prices. I didn't realise that they were asking such stratospheric amounts. 
 I bought a whole lot of wooden hangers from Mei +  Picchi about 10 years back and am still very happy with them:  http://www.meipicchi.com/index.php?mact=ProductManager,cntnt01,frontend_essentials,0&cntnt01product_group_id=9&cntnt01subgroup_id=35&cntnt01product_id=262&cntnt01returnid=20 I've also noticed that reputable alterations tailors will quite often have some of the wider, plastic hangers lying around so if you've got someone that you typically use for alterations,...
 It does look pretty good.  At the risk of nit-picking, though, what the heck is a star destroyer doing hovering over a castle *inside* the atmosphere of a planet?  I'm far from a Star Wars expert, but I would have thought that they'd break up in the atmosphere - they're designed to prowl around in deep space, not land on planets. 
 Fantastic recommendation, GF! I'll be sure to ask for some recommendations the next time I feel like a quick dose of salmonella! 
Is anyone else having trouble accessing the %&^*$ census website?    I've been trying the past hour but I keep on getting an error screen and a message telling me that the ABS website is very busy at the moment!
 I don't always agree with you, but we certainly see eye-to-eye on this issue.  The occasional display-back is OK, but it's become the default option nowadays. Manufacturers of all levels are slapping a little bit of decoration on to a movement, adding a display back, and upping the price of the watch because it's now got a display back feature and a "decorated" movement.  I'm not a big fan of most of Rolex's watches, but I do admire them for standing by their original...
 Yes, that was a truly, truly dreadful article. Unsurprisingly, it was by Louise Edmonds, who is the worst of Exec Style's stable of menswear writers. Most of her pieces come across as recycled marketing releases from fashion brands.    Congrats on the upcoming move to HK, and congrats on inheriting your dad's watch (and I hope that I'm correct in assuming that your dad is still alive and that he's just passed his watch on to you!).  If you want to get the bracelet...
  
 Bit of a pointless quote without knowing that the life sentences were for.  Were they for mass murders, rape, or other very violent crimes? Or were they, for example, for people who'd been sentenced under the unnecessarily draconian (and ineffective) "three strikes" laws and who were sent to gaol for life for three, relatively trivial marijuana and petty theft offences? 
 Thanks for the link, Ed.  I'll just leave this here:
