1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I'm just curious as to what you guys carry on your person on a regular basis for accessories. Such as watches/ pocket watches, tie clasps/ clips/ pins, money clip, jewelry, fancy knife, hankerchief, or anything else. Please tell...

    What do you mean on a daily basis? When wearing formal clothes (ie morning coat et.c.), business suit or just everyday regardless?

    You mean to say that you don't carry a cane with a hidden sword inside of it? [​IMG]


    With regard to the original question, I carry 3 things with me all the time: wallet, keys and cell phone. That's it.

    Here's a representative selection of my basic rig but I regularly rotate various items(for metal and leather color) except for the phone and the mints.

    Rotary mechanical wristwatch or 1930s J.W. Benson silver half-hunter, wedding, claddagh and St. Katherine (seal) rings, 2 pocket handkerchiefs, mobile telephone, silver cigarette case which serves as a wallet. Very occasionally a collar pin also. If I am going out to dinner I may take a silver napkin holder and a vesta case/cigar cutter.

    LK, The Razor is so incongruous to your whole kit, may I suggest a more classical phone.

    I'm certain that it can be retrofitted as a portable or at least a car phone. Think about it.

    The Japanese have developed this digital Rolleiflex, which looks exactly like the TLR of yesteryear; perhaps, I could compell them to devise a celluar phone that looks like a bakelite phone from the '40s. The nice thing about Japanese technology is that they are willing to embrace older dynamics while respecting the historical tradition at the same time unlike Occidental mainstream viewpoints.
