Well, I liked that picture of Cary Grant in a white DB smile.gif

Brown DB is for iGent farmer?

Are you certain this can be attributed to the DB?

on the contrary, it lends to his credibility.

this is HOF worthy. well done, Baron.

I think DBs are fantastic but have to be made. Good RTW DBs are few and far in between.

Getting punched in the face can actually look worse than it is. Unless you get caught off guard and your head rocks because your neck isn't anchored, you don't get KO'ed; all you get is pissed off enough to go stomp the other guy into the ground.

Believe me, barring a facial knife scar, there is no better 'get out of my face' fashion statement than a black eye.

As you were.

I had a black eye once as a result of some drunken play sparring with a buddy. I've never gotten so much attention from women in my life as I got that week. I was tempted to get it re-blackened but my buddy demured.

From the pictures I've seen, I wouldn't call you ugly at all. But you are hella tall.

Same here. Its notable that my DB overcoat doesn't get the same reaction - I chalk that up to the current trend for peacoats and the like.
