Many things at a dollar store cost more than a dollar.

Start my own shop/members-only club for dandies. Location TBD (I was thinking somewhere in Omotesando, Tokyo)

a high-end men's import shop at day:

- collect all those sartorial goodies from around the world (a great reason to travel "for work")
- sell at reasonable mark-up (not Isetan, typical Japan bad)
- order shows for all those smaller but quality tailors, cobblers, etc.

a place to relax at night:

- several functional rooms (dining, lounge, library, bar, etc.)
- pretentious wood paneled interior throughout
- plush couches
- a fireplace
- some sort of dead animal on the ground or wall
- huge library (only uniformly sized hardcovers please)
- some trick door somewhere that leads to a secret chamber
- great collection of scotch/humidor/wine cellar
- in-house cleaners that hand-iron
- some guy who polishes shoes like a madman
- a butler I will call Jeeves even if his real name is Pablo

Any leftover would 1/2 go into investments (1/3 equities, 1/3 commercial real estate, 1/3 misc) Other 1/2 would go to a slightly nicer (but not ridiculous) apartment with a harbor view, an Aston Martin (the new Bond one?), a collection of Jaeger LeCoultre watches, full Attolini suit wardrobe, bespoke shoes (still deciding on the cobbler), and a couple more Jantzen shirts (Ricky is my friend).

What would I do?

Hire a personal chef, a personal trainer and a cleaning service.

Buy a bigger house in North Central Phoenix - Sen. McCain's is for sale for $6 million right now.

Buy a vacation home in Hawaii; La Jolla; Vail, CO or Harbor Springs, MI (this would be a tough choice.)

Set up trust funds for my kids to ensure they are all set and can't blow the money.

Set up a foundation to support causes I find interesting.

Play more golf, ski and take up tennis again.

What's a "tatami" on the second floor?

Is that Tokyo?

I'd buy the all-leather Goyard trunk currently on ebay and put all the money in it.

More seriously, I'd probably try to invest enough of it conservatively to have some steady income. After taxes and lump-sum discounting, it would probably come to 5 mill, which is great but not enough to retire on right now and live lavishly. Let's live in fantasy and say that it's the full 20 mil. So I invest quite a bit, maybe buy a house in the 7th -- probably a few million euro, and finally be able to afford someone who wouldn't fuck up my shirts and other clothes. I'm thinking a dedicated live-in cleaner and caretaker. Sending out my shirts would probably cost over $15 a shirt at Paris prices, for someone who'd do it right. Oh, and some fresh seafood for the RJ cat.

Maybe give in to temptation to have a Breguet, even though I can't appreciate an automatic watch.

Custom order special carbon fiber luggage from Hermes.
And have them re-issue the Traite des Armes motif pocket square (if anyone has one of these, I will pay you very good money for it).

Get that sword umbrella.

Charity, broadly...

And some cufflinks from Arfan, Taffin and/or Trianon.

Is Trianon still in business?

I see their dress sets at auction often.

Tatami ...and not only is it Tokyo, its one of my favorite areas of Tokyo. Omotesando/Harajuku/Aoyama. Great park a few blocks away, with sunday goth lolita, cosplay parade, and street bands, plus the mecca of fine clothing and streetwear shopping that surrounds you. One of the top two tonkatsu places in Tokyo is literally three minutes away from your house, AND you are within a six minute walk from the subway station. Plus there are plenty of trendy bars and places to hang. Anyone wanna loan me $700,000?
