    This simply will not do. There is no shelf for my top hat.. no hanger for my monocle. I say good day to you sir, GOOD. DAY.

    Is that a regular cane, or one with a sword?

    That is roughly where I'm at. No spreadsheet for # wears, etc, but I do lust after a valet. Last Christmas my sister bought me an antique hardwood one and I kindly thanked her and got her to return it and keep the money, as she had spent too much on it. I did keep the vintage bespoke camel hair jacket she thrifted to help display the valet, though. We had named the valet "Uncle Charlie" after Charlie Watts, His Sartorial Musical Genius.

    She was willing to get it for you and you made her return it even though it was a well thought out gift? Sick burn!

    I know, horrible brother, eh?! It was a surprise gift, and I was touched, and intrigued, but just not sure how much I would use it, and therefore could not justify how much she spent. It was the thought that counted, and she was better with the money in her pocket.

    I joined as well, even though I know they will be about 4 inches too long. Couldn't pass up Cone Mills denim. I'm trying a slim fit with this one, not the straight fit. May look better with boots and the massive cuffs I know I will have to have on them.

    I have a valet--a gift from my wife years ago. At least in my experience, the idea is better than the reality. Only time I truly find it useful is when I have a 5:00 am flight to a place where I need to be wearing a suit on arrival. The rest of the time it just feels like an ostentatious extra step, and mine more often than not ends up just as the "lazy rack" for something I've taken off and don't want to hang up just yet.

    Oh, and shoes to keep it relevant: my rainy day beater black Jeffersons from the RDA sale last fall...

    Thought my natty Dundee’s we’re looking a little ragged yesterday, so I put them through the works this morning: water brush, Reno, brush, deer bone, brush, saphir cordo cream, brush, paste wax the toe, buff.

    You call it ostentatious (and I agree to some extent), I call it making an occasion of the mundane. Life's much better when things aren't mundane. It's kinda like taking the extra time to straight razor shave or brush your shell. I could very easily see it's use tapering after about a week of use in my house though.

    Yeah, it's marketing BS though... they're just taking them off the main site again
