It was one of the nicest days so far.

Better get my Inspector Gadget coat out of mothballs.

Wurger

 

You have rightfully earned your place in the SF hall of fame.

 

Thanks for all your help over the last couple of weeks as well. :cheers:

Brief review of the Drakes lambswool cardi as promised...

Knitted in Scotland; wool has a nice hardy, yet soft texture. Pleasingly, dark shade of navy. Brown suede elbow patches, which is a nice touch. Plasticky buttons are the only let-down, but a minor one IMO. Fit is very slim and I would advise sizing up. Overall, great for the shoulder months with a BD and chinos or jeans. I'm getting a lot of wear out of it.

Some pics:

Cheers for the run down on the Drake's cardigan! Looks nice mate.

Pulled the trigger on a Tom Ford suit today.

 

50% off, but still going to be the most expensive suit in my wardrobe, by a good margin.

 

But sooooooo beautiful.

 

Will post pix once the alterations are done. (Trouser hemming and 1cm shortening of sleeves are all it needs.)

 

 

Nice Coxaca! Would be great to see pictures when the alterations are finished. I hope you get some great use out of these fine threads.

You will bring joy into the heart of my mate the shooman. He just loves black captoes.

Wurger, that's a great collection.

I must admit, though, that I'd never get eight pairs of the same style and colour of shoe as (speaking personally), it just seems to be a bit of a waste when there are so many lovely shoes out there in so many different styles and colours.

Also, I tend to wear black shoes about once a month, so they wouldn't get much wear!

Actually, speaking of black, plain captoe shoes, that reminds me that I must make sure to wear my pair of JL City shoes sometime this week...

Connoisseur or obsessive compulsive, probably both.
