I enjoyed an '80s RG Panatela Larga this weekend -- very difficult cigar to role, but done perfectly. It started out with that distinct "aged tobacco" profile (no surprise), with a hint of those strains of tobacco that aren't grown any longer, then - after a decidedly bad spot during which I almost abandoned it - it was off to the races - brilliant to the end.

Just picked up a box of RA Estupendos. These were a regional release a couple years ago, and I was fortunate enough to pick up an unbroken box from a collector I know.
I've been working through a box of '98 Punch coronas (Habanos), a beautifully aged cigar. These are on the lighter to medium side and a preferred size. There are too few coronas produced these days. I've just received a few recent production Behikes, and I can't decide whether to see what they are like now (by reputation these smoke well young), or whether that would constitute unacceptable infanticide.
My father didn't own any jeans and I don't recall seeing any photos of him in jeans either. He likely owned jeans at some point in his life when younger, but I never knew of them. I used to lament that he was so "formal" (and limited) in his attire (i.e. that he always wore trousers and button shirts), but now appreciate his choice and his sense that suiting (or trousers and jackets) were what suited him best..
Photos speak for themselves, and yet don't do this jacket justice. Zegna mainline jacket (Ermenegildo Zegna) new with tags 100% leather suede jacket. Replete with all the details you find only in the finest outerwear money can buy. $3,495 new. Size 52 (Euro) / 42 (US). Sleeves run slightly long. Measurements upon request.
