I picked up a cream colored silk formal shirt from Budd. The cloth is thick and densely woven and lacks the cold silky smoothness of the typical silk shirt. I think it wears well for the winter, but too hot for other climes. The cream color is not particularly noticeable at night.
I'd be up for a Norwegian Rain pre-order if bright colors were available.
So it turns out that one of my winter tires, bought just last winter, has a bubble and needs to be replaced.
Consider the EG Holburn. Looks similar to the Arca but cheaper. I got mine from Leffot for maybe $4-500. It's a glued sole but for a shoe used a couple times a year it's not bad. You might have to special order it. http://leffot.com/edward-green-holborn-black-patent/
I don't think it's a big deal that the Force is used as deux ex machina. The Ancient Greeks used deux ex machina in their tragedies to make the impossible happen, thousands of years ago.
Interesting BBC program about why we wear ties. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03999kq#play
Yes. But I'm trying to pre-empt the possible question of "Can an Italian making a shirt in Italy be French?" Particularly given the whole "Is Eidos Italian" episode.
They sell Mast Brothers at Whole Foods, very expensive for what it is. For $10 per bar, I much prefer the ones from Alain Ducasse's Le Chocolat. Unfortunately they don't ship the US. I bought 200 euros worth of chocolate the last time I was in Paris. http://www.lechocolat-alainducasse.com/en/chocolate-bar
My shirts from Mary that I ordered in the summer finally arrived. Apparently she has left Paris but to me her shirt style is very French, particularly the shirt sleeve, cuff and tail
The Agnelli tweed looks like the typical drapey Steed with wasp waist to me. It looks to be a either a 3 roll 2.5 or a 3 roll 2 which hasn't settled yet. Original pics here. https://mobile.twitter.com/SteedTailors/status/677192026820079616
