I love Spain and we considered going there for our honeymoon (my wife had never been and I wanted to go back) but ultimately decided against it because there is just too much to see and do and we really wanted to just go sit on a beach somewhere and could do that less expensively in the Caribbean. That being said, I agree with some of the other posters that Madrid > Barcelona. If it were me, I would spend 2 nights in Grenada and 2 or 3 nights in Madrid and then maybe the...
Wolverine and Titan here. However, even though it was slightly before my time, I like to refer to the Titans as the Tartars. Just like Oakland University will always be the Pioneers to me and not the Golden Grizzlies.
I agree that shade of sweater that CP is wearing is great. I have one that looks remarkably similar from Brooks Brothers that I've gotten a lot of use out of this winter. It works great with chinos, cords, flannels, and even denim.

Those look very nice. How long have you had them and how much wear have you gotten out of them? I bought on the current pre-order and am really looking forward to having them for late in the spring and summer.

I really like those a lot.Must. Resist. Purchase.
Color #8 chukkas on commando sole from Alden of Carmel
I went with the LeatherSoul pre-order of the #8 short wings since I like an "E" width and it's generally a bit harder for me to find on the shelf somewhere. FWIW, both previous times that I've pre-ordered something in color #8, they came in considerably ahead of what was originally planned. I think it's just the shades like whiskey, ravello, and cigar that have the big delays...
I agree with FrankCowperwood that the Rancourt penny loafers are much more casual than Alden. I have a pair in the navy color shell and I love them. The shape and the stitching work great with chinos, cords, denim, and even shorts in the summer. IMO, my Alden loafers look pretty goofy when I try to match them up with anything much more casual than a good fitting chino or cord but do look better than my Rancourts with most of my wool or flannel trousers.The casualness of...
