Size approx. US 42. This is the Ltd. Ed. jacket designed by Tokihito Yoshida.
'01 Cohiba Corona Especiale tonight with a sparking wine. Phenominal cigar.
Roasted again today -- with rare exception (Blue Bottle, Four Barrel, etc.), all the coffee I drink is home roasted. Sunday coffee was a Kenya AA microlot and a custom blend. Both were brewed in my vacuum pot.
Ed, you are the man. These look great. I'm looking forward to additional sizes and expect to opt into a pair in mid-weight to heavier weight fabric.
Iron schmiron ... I got a commercial steamer and have never looked back.
There's an option I prefer to "going over the wine list" when with friends ... that's participating in wine dinners. We recently hosted two at the Bohemian Grove.

The new MBP line / the refresh was released today. Apple aficionados, what say ye? (While any posts are welcome, "Mac's suck" comments are not particularly helpful, like price comparisons to non-Mac options -- those opinions and options are common knowledge.) I found the update to be painfully predictable, and lacking the uptick in technology Apple has been known for in the past when it does it's first release.
