    How did you find out about the ivorymongers in Paris? Did you fill out a CITES declaration on re-entering the US?

    1. Our hotel was nearby and we stumbled upon it on a walk.

    2. Err . . . "maybe" would be the most truthful unincriminating answer.

    Perhaps on a future visit you can hit Maison Bonnet. Their tortoiseshell cufflinks and collar stays are sold at Arnys and Halary.

    Maison was too far away from anything else we were interested in, and I didn't want to drag my wife all the way to see a bunch of stuff I'd probably not want to pay for. Arnys, however, was very cool.

    How about:

    The Man with the Golden Tweed?
    Octotweedy?
    You Only Live Tweed?
    On Her Majesty's Tweedy Service?
    The Spy Who Loved Tweed?


    You should have been there for the brainstorming session.

    Why do you have a blog?

    Because I don't actually know anything about anything.

    For some of you, an NSFW link to a giant pic of a brunette in tweed lingerie, specifically, a Shepherd's check.

    For the rest of you, it will be completely safe because (a) the jumblies are covered and (b) you are reading StyleForvm from a poorly monitored state prison.


    - B


    So much airbrushing these days [​IMG] good pic though.

    I expect better from you next time.

    An excellent start! Now the only thing you need to do is to maintain this level of quality. [​IMG]

    One nitpick, though: IMHO, the world is already fed with prescriptive blogs. (ASW alone is more than enough.)

    Fair enough--I'm not in any position to be presribing anyway. I'm still trying to get a feel for what tone to take and what direction to go in.

    Will you have an RSS feed?

    I don't even know what that is . . . mind educating me?

    It's a way to subscribe to the blog. As soon as something new shows up, it shows up in my RSS reader so I don't have to check the website itself. I know Wordpress supports it, so maybe you just have to activate it. RSS is one standard, while Atom is another. For example, the main Wordpress blog has two links ("Recent Posts RSS" and "Recent Comments RSS") near the bottom for RSS: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/ --Andre

    It will just be a matter of time. It's a pain in the ass to reformat everything.

    Gotcha--thanks a lot. Sounds like something I should incorporate.

    Well, it's more a play off the 'no tweed in town' rule (it's "Sex and the City," anyway), but Vox, RJman, and FNB can still be my catty blog friends.
