I cited it only as an ancient rule, FWIW, not something that has to be followed today, or that I follow. Though I mostly used to. Not because of the rule but because I didn't like derbies. I don't get this. The Italians wear brown with everything. I don't think the rule is ancient at all. I've...
Quote: Originally Posted by TRINI You're confusing CBD with UCBD. Don't think so. Manton skewers UCBD in some epic thread I can't be bothered to locate at the moment, and rightly so.

Update - My tailor, William Field, will likely be by at around 6:00 pm to join us for drinks. Sign up here if you intend to be there.
