    In recognition of your recognition of me, I will do something befitting on my BLOG.

    You already did something on Communist dictators in Mao suits.

    Aren't those the only reasons people read my posts?



    I said only in tweed jackets.



    Thanks! I just approved it.



    Au contraire.



    Thanks. I'm working on this RSS thing. My technological know-how stopped developed when I graduated from college in 2004.


    You really are picky.

    Will there be extra points for.. ahem.. pattern matching?

    Thanks for that.

    Given the tenor of the first post, is this going to be a more lifestyle/accessories blog than a clothing one? Just curious.

    You've been docked two FooPoints.

    Sweet. I added you too.

    Hey, the stipulation was clear! It would be wrong of me to break my own rule.

    You neglect to consider the possibility that I prefer no 'pattern' at all . . .

    Nah, it will be about clothes mostly, but generally about style-oriented stuff.

    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.

    It's funny you mention this because when I first read the new title, I was thinking perhaps "Tweed in Town" might be a little catchier and I liked the very minor alliteration.

    But after all, it is your blog, not mine. And I must say the new layout is very nice, minimal, simple and most of all pleasing.

    Thanks. You're absolutely right about "Tweed in Town" sounding better, but I wanted to avoid the T.I.T. acronym. Also, I figured 'city' puts a distinctly contemporary spin on the phrase.

    How open should the quarters be?

    Right, T.I.T.C. is much better... [​IMG]

    I like them open but tight.

    NSFW... kind of. Not quite there yet, but... Does only on a tweed jacket count? Because that one would be definitely NSWF.

    I once saw a guy in a pink bunny costume bicycle past me in Berkeley.
    Those have got to be scratchy.



    probably a pal of mine
