@Slh It's hard to tell because of the unprecedentedly poor photo quality, but my left knee is bent quite a bit toward the camera  whilst the right is straight and that side of my body is also pitched a bit closer. I think the effect is that the trouser has draped forward from the knee-point down, thus the trousers appear no wider than my rodent-like limbs.

A marked improvement on the top half! I'm sorry to say that once I saw those trousers I was like "guh!" Black and/or navy trousers are so tough to do right because they usually look like orphaned suit trousers. Here the contrast between jacket and trousers is just too much. This look is casual and deserves a casual shirt. The one you are wearing belongs on a suit. Some might say the tie does too, but I don't mind it here. On the plus side really I like what you are starting to do with colors. Some might frown on solid colored silk pocket squares but I think it goes rather nicely with that tie. Well done.

Today, meetings in the north of the county so sturdy shoes and a barbour jacket are required

As for getting tenure, it sure is nice - so congrats to @erictheobscure! Thus far in my career I have only seen one professor completely fold his tent after getting tenured, the rest of us are all working as hard as ever. Alas, the influences of NPM over the last decade, and the changes this has led to on the daily academic work environment, makes you question that work ethic more and more. Anyway, I digress... Today:

Been busy for a couple of days doing a long-distance apartment purchase (the property being 8000-odd kilometres from where I am located now). Not so easy.

 

Anyway our offer was accepted earlier this evening so I am now again a laird, after some 18 years of vagabondage.

 

Just wanted to say that I really liked the latest fits from Shen and TweedyProf. And of course Braddock kicked arse as always. Many other good fits, and an incredible jacket kop from Caustic Man. You must be pleased with that one!

 

Oh yeah, AAS. I love you man, but that jacket belongs on a bed, not a human body...

Thanks to Pingson's fits, I can always get a pretty good idea what the weather is in Scandinavia today....

Take a deep breath. Just because colours are out there doesn't mean they always need to be tossed together in a desperate bid for something more "distinctive."

There is a pleasant quiet presence to this and it need not be changed.

Yes, rust wool tie. Wait...you're wearing my tie?!? Then what's in the package that's supposed to be on its way to me even as I type this? :butbut:

Gentlemen,

It's been fun on the road. London was fun, especially meeting up with Cleav, and I bought a few trinkets. Now I'm in Vienna, and have been in major museum mode. No purchases anticipated for this leg of the trip. FYI, for those of you looking for authentic high-button shoes, they can be found at Zak, in Kaertnerstrasse, or at Materna, in Mahlerstrasse, though for what cost I do not know.

Back to work on Monday. Will post then.

I’m deeply jealous.  I love Vienna, though this wouldn’t be my preferred time of year to visit.  We expect a full report upon your return.

 

Have you ever eaten at Steirereck?  If not, you should consider it.

 

Cheers,

Ever the gentleman, Upr was indeed charming. My surprise birthday gift from Upr, sported yesterday, is delightful.

Safe journey home my friend biggrin.gif
