And boxers.

I too like toggle-back cuff links, but almost exclusively Dunhill which have nicely finished toggles. I hardly wear the ones with the cheap looking generic toggle any more.

During the summer, I wear Land's End polos. They seem never to wear out.

However, I'm in agreement with LK about the vulgarity of ballpoints. I currently have 3 fountain pens filled that I use regularly: Black Omas Paragon and Montblanc Oscar Wilde for daily use, and Namiki Emperor for writing letters to , not that my handwriting hasn't gone to crap.

One of my favorite pair of shoes for casual wear are brown suede Zegna chukkas with composite leather-rubber sole that are now so worn they have holes through them and will need to be resoled for the third time.

I have 5 pair of AE in only two styles and every color.

I have a collection of vintage and modern Parker Duofolds. They're exquisite.

I think IndianBoiz means the chrome Parker Jotter ballpoints that are standard issue for a certain class of middle-aged non-resident Indians.

Hi Dad.

Hi Dad.

Well I'm a young guy but yeah that's the one, basically. Who cares it's just a bloody pen.
I have to admit I'm looking for a nice St Dupont or Montblanc though. I'll ask Santa.

Your dad's Indian?

So you don't actually prefer the Parker Jotter?

Admittedly, fountain pens suck for scribbling notes on napkins.

Yes I do, it's a pretty solid, cheap pen. Yet inferior for SF standards I suppose.

Yes: Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, in the blue box, with the neon orange cheez powder. I may be a food snob who once considered a career as a chef, but I will never, ever turn down a bowl of this shit.

Tres cheap super skinny stretch cropped jeans from Tokyo station malls... D&G rip along the seams and not the arse and there is no way on earth I am ever going to try on 37trillion pairs in Barneys just to find anything 'worthy' that fits...

and $10 Thai fishermans pants when worn not in Thailand too.
