Thanks for the Land's End recommendations, but I am reluctant to buy online (and were I do to so, I'd go straight to the source: Murray's Toggery Shop). I'm just not game to buy any more pants online (of any length) without trying them on first: small things make a big difference to fit. For example, the pair at Tommy Hilfiger were good in the waist, bottom of the legs, and leg length, but just a cm or two too short in the rise.
I was complimented in the street for my "swag" last night - good to see the youth appreciate linen shirts and red trousers...
Can anyone recommend a local source for some Nantucket red-esque shorts? Seems like everyone is doing a similar shade at the moment, but of the ones that I tried, they were either badly cut (Tommy Hilfiger), poorly finished (French Connection), or heinously overpriced (Ralph Lauren).

Stunning. In fact, I want one. Would you mind terribly if I sent you a PM to find out more about how you ordered?
Right, just for the shipping! How much was the suit itself? Also, what did you get in terms of cut/fabric? Enquiring minds want to know!
I have a surprisingly tasteful Emporio Armani watch that I bought myself upon graduation from law school (all I could afford at the time). It gets quite a few compliments when I wear it, which is rarely as it is, with hindsight, a bit too big for my minuscule wrists. My next pickup will probably be something vintage. There are plenty of 'lesser' brands that turned out stunning pieces in the fifties and sixties, before either going quartz or going bust. My dream is...
