Classic @dddrees. I can wear some pretty unique shoes around the office with zero comments. A few weeks ago I had those on and a coworker said "Nice shoes!"...Really? The black captoe is what gets a compliment??
Regarding cigar, I don't mind it darker, but nearly black is a bit much. With ravello getting lighter again, maybe there is hope. Other brands still have the more traditional looking cigar (and other lighter colors), although quantities are usually even more limited than Alden.

I had two items show up today. I'm with ryden, the Portuguese Flannel is very nice and soft (also perfect in an XL for me). The large Gansey though is a little more snug than I like. I'll try it again tonight, but keep an eye on the inventory if a large.
