Austin, Texas, hm? Looks more to me like a minister from Kazakhstan with his wife from from Arkhangelsk. (Running on stereotypes today, I know... but that thing on both of your heads just triggers something. I can't help it.)
That's hilarious. I would not disagree with you. I wonder what our compatriot in Russia IST66 thinks. Are these still worn there?
Dead camera battery this morning, but home to catch the last of the fading sunlight.

I decided that I needed to look as capitalist and bourgeois as possible, hence today's attire.
Well done. The blue-red combination looks nice. Plus your ring, a fine detail. edit: Forgot to mention the cuff links. They look wonderful. Like Art Nouveau.

From what I see/know they still do wear fur hats. And not only in Russia. Why shouldn't they? They're warm and have the potential to look sexy (at least when worn by hot women in cold environments). Fur hats weren't invented by the Soviets, they just spread with the influence of the Soviets to Eastern Europe (back again) where they weren't worn before and became a symbol of the communist system, thus the Western stereotype of fur hat = Soviet era.

- can I just add that only one of the above feedback has credibility..
- I'll let you choose who to listen to.

- i notice you utilize the same main colors for your tie/ps regularly. might help to try some clashing yet complementary colors, especially for your p/s. oldog does this the best, and might provide some inspiration, even though he hasnt posted lately.

Thank you, Jan. The ring I had made for me some 25 years ago - the original stone was malachite (a striated green stone), but dropping it on the bathroom floor once too many times smashed it, hence the lapis lazuli cabochon currently seen.
The cufflink design is derived from a Louis Comfort Tiffany pine bough motif from one of the millions of objects in the Met Museum's collection. Glad that you like it.
