I've never been to Ethiopia, nor do I plan on it. However, Sidamo is one of my favorite single orgin coffees. Not only for the taste, but the fact that it is more less grown in back yard coffee gardens. Sadly, the industry is entirely unjust to Ethiopian coffee farmers and workers. Their market price (which isn't determined by open trade) leaves the majority of farms bankrupt. Farm workers earn $0.50 / per day, when much of the developed world is willing to pay 2-4 dollars per prepared cup. Ethiopian coffee farmers are now moving the majority of their crop allocation to a chewable narcotic called chat. If you are interested, check out the documentary Black Gold.

I'm terribly dressed today. A pair of black slacks that attract 'orrible dust and an ill fitting shirt.
Thankfully, my tan grenson archies and blue socks divert the eye....

Just say that it's sprezz and no one will bother you about it again.

I'd untuck the sweater.

Nice fabric on the jacket. What's the contrast like with the trousers?

As per the advice of several of you in this forum (and others more closely linked to my real life), I made a change to my glasses frames (I needed a new prescription anyway - aging does that to a person), and also decided, with the new style of glasses, that the facial hair did not "fit". Hence the different person you see before you in today's posting. Also, taking criticism from last week (Friday's suit was thought to be too boxy - a conclusion with which I wholeheartedly concurred - it's seeing the tailor today), I decided to see if my most fitted suit would still fit me. From the photos, I think that the chest is a shade tight, but the fact that I can don it at all is gratifying (I bought it at the low point for my weight in recent times, and it's been various forms of too tight every since). For your entertainment, then (possibly) . . . (The re-do of my image does make my signature line rather passe - sorry, Tibor.)

You are looking much better, sir.
The new frames suit you perfectly.

Nice mods, crusty!

The frames and loss of facial hair have really changed your appearance - this looks good (not that I thought the previous look didn't suit you).

The suit jacket does look a tad snug, but not beyond wearable, might be worth seeing if the button can be moved slightly (it might also open the quarters a little.

Welcome! Your poses remind me of one Crusty who used to post here.

First fit on here in a while. I've been hanging out with the cool kids on the otherside of the playground, and only been popping back for the odd catchup.








(sorry for the poor quality pics).
