Jeez, Jamison, those are really nice! (Just noticed them for the first time.) A little too small for me, I suspect. I particularly like the subtle antiquing on them, something not present on my two pairs of SC/GM shoes from Bennie's. Someone should jump on these.
Omegablogger, that's a good deal! I have a couple of John Smedley polo shirts, and they have the softest feel to them of all my polos. Their Sea Island cotton is just lovely. A couple of questions: Are the Leander, Milo, and Thorley all short-sleeve polos? And, for those that are short-sleeve polos, does the sizing differ from one to another? My John Smedley polos are Medium (but are not the models you've mentioned), and they run pretty slim. I'd have probably been...

I just picked up a really nice navy/burgundy paisley tie by Piattelli. It's the first I've owned, and I'm impressed with its quality. The silk is really vibrant, the construction is very good, and it has a fair heft to it. Anyone else bought any Piattelli ties?

I figure I'd take a 10 E in UK sizes. If...
