Aye, Jacob Marley's spirit.

I just figured there would be someplace left in NYC even if you had to bring them to one of the ritzy hotels?

How many tweed trousers do you have?

Can you give us an early X-mas present by taking a group pic of all of them?....especially with you wearing one of them?

One holiday tradition that I like over there on Devil's Island is when some of the few remaining posters fly to Oz in December every year to gift a bathtub full of mid-stream urine to it's most frequent poster. He's led in to the washroom with the lights out. The lights are then raised, everyone zips or buttons up, and yells, "Surprise!" After much mirth and tears of joy, the recipient shouts, "Hey, mates...I only drink my own urine!" Guffaws and hijinx ensue...until the miner from the Outback arrives. Then there's gravelly violence. I assume that you are off the guest list for this, although being left off the Rubinacci London guest list can be a contra-indication.

Is this before or after the vegan health feast?

How do you know? Was it awarded the Spoozy badge of reverence?

You need to learn to ration your talents, you're becoming jaded and over-exposed.

Why don't you send them to Jefferyd for an authopsy?

The wicket grows sticky when you try to define "tweed."

I have probably 10 pairs of odd trou that are unquestionably tweed. Thick, rustic, wonderfully warm tweed. But there are probably 10-15 more that are dressier and lighter weight that are tweedy but perhaps open to quibbles.

I often have five pairs made up in the same cloth ... 5x the charcoal, the mid-grey, the light-grey, the chocolate brown, the mid-brown ...

Sounds sensible to me. Although, for practical and budgetary reasons, I plan on having a fall/winter OneTrouser, a spring/summer OneTrouser, and a few key one-offs.

Sounds as if you have made this approach work for you.

I still say the OneTrou for someone who mostly wears suits is a bit of a cop out. The OneSuit would be much more bold.

May I suggest 25 pairs of tweed?
