    Thanks Manton - I never quite remember the difference between birdseye and nailhead - is it a question of size/proportion of the dots?

    Size, shape and placement. Birdseye dots are bigger, rounder, and arranged on the diagonal. Nailhead dots are smaller, squarer, and arranged horizontally/vertically. This is nailhead:

    Just answering questions when I can, because I am a giving kind of guy. Either that, or an insufferable Claven-esque know-it-all. No need to specify which ....

    Hmmm...I wonder which?

    I might have to play in this contest.[​IMG]

    Very nice. Now this is what I consider to be a serious amount of gray.

    SoCal have you ever run into anyone else in NYC that dresses in the TB aesthetic (except for TB).

    I could imagine the conversation: "Nice socks."
