Gutted I missed this by just a few days. Mr. C, Crusty, T-1 et al, enjoy, please keep me posted for the next one in case I'm in town.
I have a Chipps garza fina grenadine in rust which looks very similar to Don's tie. Eric, if you're looking for one, Mr Winston has recently got his grenadines up on the website and they are very decently priced at around $50.
I seem to be currently in a phase of wearing odd jackets more frequently than suits, and in my usual OCD way I am now trying to acquire one pair of trousers to pair up with each jacket, in most cases made of similar fabric and of course in complimentary colours. It got me wondering if this is a common habit among the SF odd-jacket wearers (Claghorn?) or if its more common for gents to make use of the versatility provided by non-matching top and bottom halves, and...

When I completed my masters degree in 1991 I rewarded myself with the exact same watch that Dopey pictured. It cost $450 and although I've since moved on to a couple of Rolexes (thanks Stitchy!!) and it doesn't see much light, its still chugging away in the cupboard. I've got used to the size and weight of a submariner but still like the way that Tag looks. I'm a strictly amateur watch geek but would hazard a guess that Tags are sometimes unpopular because they seemed to...
I like the saturated blue shirt Roy, although I suspect we'll be in a minority here:
Surprised you didn't break out the orange trousers Don. I never trouble the big dawgs for many votes on these things anyway, so what the hell ... RL Polo Lacoste Lacoste Seavees
