 Yeah, people have a thing about watches with roman numerals? When I tried on a watch last week, the sales assistant was pointing to some similar watches, "but those have roman numerals" she said, waving dismissively towards some other brands on display with a sort of sneer. Was wondering what was up with that.
How formal is the wedding? I'd probably just go for a quarter/semi-brogue if you're looking for a tasteful black shoe that will serve mostly the same purposes as the Aldwych - something like the Loake Strand. It is also on the same last as the pair you already have, so you can be certain of the sizing.   Loake vs. RMW is all about how well a pair of boots meshes with your overall style.

With all the recent talk of fragrances, can we talk deodorants? I'm in need of a new one, and I was wondering if any SF gents have recommendations.

 I quite like that look - think I've seen another pic of that jacket with a PJ zig-zag tie? Feeling inclined to get something similar made for the summer...
Cheers, it's strange how much the Oak varies in photos. Those Blake look nice, too.
