I just went to look at all the spoilered pics. Looks like you went with the Spectre Omega huh Andy? I saw these in the shop window and thought they looked very nice. Do you use the bezel as a second time zone like a 12 hour version of a GMT?

Why only the toecaps?
I really don't get this. If you're gonna get the polish out, why not shine the shoe, the whole shoe and nothing but the shoe?

 

The problem is that polish tends to crack on those portions of the shoe which flex.  The toe cap doesn't flex, so it gets the paste polish.  The rest usually gets cream.

 

Cheers,

Yes, my wife bought it for me for our anniversary last year. It's a lovely watch with an amazing movement. It's on my wrist a lot. I use the bezel exactly as you describe.

 

Unrelated to your comment, but relevant to @pravda's gracious comment (for which, thank you), the socks are Pantherella.

Wow, love those peak lapels. To hell with the 1920's, that outfit is badass in any decade.

I went with the riskier tie choice today (others were solid brown and solid green) and not sure it worked out. I am also torn on white vs. blue shirts with this jacket. Have a good weekend folks.

I've mentioned before (referring to the discussion of dress norms in the workplace) that I've been told by a former boss to not wear a light blue shirt and just wear white.

One sometimes encounters the word "Peacock" in some online men's clothing groups, but one seldom encounters peacocks on men's clothing.  

Earlier today, on my way to the barber shop, I walked past the Dolce And Gabbana shop (does anyone know if they are still in prison for tax fraud, something they have in common with Aldo Gucci, who also went to prison for tax fraud) on the Avenue des Chumps-Elysees (local term for Rodeo Drive) and saw a double breasted jacket with peacocks on it in the window.

Why?

I'm actually working on a paper.

 

Took a break and skimmed through a thread when I saw the question at issue raised with a typical set of varied responses: too long, just right. The floodgates opened for some reason, though it's never difficult for me to generate verbiage.

I don’t know the details of Claghorn’s particular experience, of course, but it’s by no means unknown for workplaces which stress formality of dress to require employees to wear a white shirt, at least in the U.S.  (Think 'white collar'/'blue collar' dichotomy for the relevant social stereotypes.)

 

Cheers,

That collar suits you. Necktie drapes nicely too. IMO.
