+1 on the sizing issue with OEII. I got a pair before Christmas and they're about half a size bigger than my other U last shoes.
Super-cheap BIN for a battered Swaine, Adeney & Brigg case. Could probably get it repaired by SAB or just roll with the old money look: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SWAINE-ADENEY-BRIGG-ATTACHE-BRIEFCASE-IN-HAVANA-BROWN-TAN-NO-INITIALS-NO-KEY-/251819428876

Two Vanda pocket squares: 1. Kimono silk in a burgundy colour with a geometrical dot pattern on it. Slight sheen to silk, with an additional matte pattern in the weave. 2. Leaf / branch print white cotton or cotton / linen mix - this dates from before Vanda when it was just Gshen selling pocket squares on the forum. Asking £11 each including worldwide letter-post shipping.
