Prices have gone up quite a lot by the sound of things.

I like the boutique, but I haven't bought anything. They have three ranks for pricing: Plastic, which I believe is upwards of €500, then horn (€900 plus, if I recall correctly) and of course shell, for which prices can run into the thousands. The blonder the tortoise shell, the more expensive the specs. It's a truly beautiful material: Suffice to say the difference between even the finest plastic and the real thing is easily distinguished. It seems to glow. I'm Anglo-Saxon...

The colour in the eBay photos is magnificent, it's a shame they don't look as good in the flesh. I have a pair of Incotex cords in a sort of indigo / ink which has a touch of purple. I wear them with navy and a green tweed jacket with a fine purple check pattern. They look good with a charcoal overcoat too. If you are into British style, indigo/purple colours look good with fawn covert coats.
I've met him too. He's a nice chap. Very sharp and driven.

Another vote for Matt Smith. He's currently ahead of Tom Baker for me. I've been watching this show for 35 years and didn't think anyone would be better than Tom. A brave choice by The Moff, but it certainly paid off. I'm happy to see more episodes in the autumn, though nostalgia plays a large part in this sentiment: I used to love watching Who on dark evenings when I was a kid in the 70s. Viewing figures might be higher in autumn and winter, I suppose, but Doctor Who has...
