    I don't think you are too far off with it but I'd keep the RM's, swap the trousers for denim and the shirt for something softer and more casual like a blue OCBD. But then I fall firmly in the camp of not liking the whole barbour/belstaff look with suits/work attire.

    Yes, I'd also accessorise with a meat pie and football scarf, chunky knit, and a Triumph Bonneville.

    Interesting indeed. When I worked in commodities trading, we had quite a bit of discussion internally about going long the supply as well, as an alternative way to go long - particularly in places where asset prices were depressed for structural reasons and we could get a good deal. It's a trade-off between that, and the cost of diversification. Cargill for example is involved in virtually every business to do with grains - they even own or control port facilities and farm equipment businesses, and I think they have a seeds/genetics department as well - EXCEPT actually growing the stuff.

    I wonder what made Zegna decide to go long right now. Supplying commodities is a brutal business best left to specialists... better sell shovels than be a miner.

    Looking like a merchant banker, Foxy, (not in a bad way!)
