    Well, one of the four panels is black watch. They're fun boxers.

    That's a lovely looking tie, Ed. I wonder who the maker is...

    More one for the casual thread, I suppose, but I'm enough of a creature of habit to also post it in here too:

    Derek, that looks very pleasant. It somehow makes me uneasy that your sudden arrival is in such pleasant guise. I can't help but wonder if we're yet to smell the fart.

    Anyway, some less wonderful pics: I went with another "bold tie" today, in respect to Orge splendid challenge that I missed. I have to say, I was rather happy with the way it came out. Sorry - one pic in the "car studio" before the battery died, some phone pics to supplement, below.

    N.B. "The ButchBelt": how to buckle up in a suit and tie, as advised by Dr SB.

    Haha...I bought it about twenty years ago, and it was my favourite...with a black suit, too, and what were probably my first pair of "proper" shoes - Loake black captoes. I was 21. Can't think when I last wore it. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

    the seat belt's fabric looks more expensive than your suit's. polymer count looks to be the same though.

    No polymers in linen, but I'm sure you're right about the price. Mwah!

    How to walk with a stick:

    Most people will turn the handle this way. It is wrong.

    This is the right position

    It will give your stick a better swing and balance

    Thanks for your attention

    Arnathor, I like the look in general, but I think it could use some color somewhere. For such a uniformly light palate, it doesn't look nearly as washed out as I would have imagined, but some color would be a nice touch. Additionally, looks like the jacket is a touch big, and the pants could probably be tapered for such a high break. Lastly, and someone can correct me if I'm wrong about this, but the jacket should be fastened the other way. At least, I have never seen a double-breasted jacket fastened with the right side over the left.
