    She does have a habit of running out of my apartment every single time I open the door, so yes.

    Fair warning - as much as I have one of the most Anglo-American (as opposed to Italianate) wardrobes of any of the posters in these fora, and my sense of color is diametrically opposite that of the theme for tomorrow's challenge, I'm going to throw my hat (indeed, my entire ensemble) into the ring on this one.

    With the sobriety of color scheme, either I will look timelessly elegant, or I will look like I should be laid for for burial - you be the judge.

    Well, you could have named her Electra...and she could have gotten quite a complex.

    If I wasn't feeling so lazy, I would go quote this in "things that are making you happy." But, srsly, Stitchy, you risk shunning!

    So much hat humour this week! Also, I hope you are laid to rest in the colours you most love. Let the mourners wear black; you're either off to paradise, or one Hell of a bonfire!

    Timo, absolutely stunning suit. Damn that's a nice upgrade you've done from Suit Supply (not that I don't like their products) but Partenopea is in another league!

    Thanks mate. I'll keep the PS issue in mind. That particular one hasn't had much airtime so I had a go with it. I know it looks like it just came out of its wrapper; that much is true.

    ('Wrapper' because i picked it up from a Muji store in HK's airport. Muji makes some rather interesting, and well-made, little pieces).

    Navy DB Steed MTM suit, blue and white stripe shirt, silver/grey oxford tie by Hober. Black oxfords are not pictured. Apologies for the usual mediocre photography.
