    I'm in, just because I'll finally be able to release my inner peacock without SF disapproval [​IMG] I don't have any of the odd accessories, but I'll think of something!

    Yes, but back then dandy meant something different. It quickly acquired new meaning, but as applied to Brummell, it meant simple dress in dark or no colors, of impeccable cut, fit, and materials.

    This is almost surely an exaggeration of what he truly believed, but this is a famous BB quote:

    "If John Bull turns around to look at you, you are not well dressed; but either too stiff, too tight, or too fashionable."

    There have been a series of coincidental circumstance which have not only encouraged me to participate in tomorrow's exercise, but may prove to push me over the edge, going from P cawk to farkakt* in short order. Be afraid, be very afraid . . .

    *Note - Ask Stitchy for the definition of "farkakt".

    Looking forward to competing against you, I have planned something rather peacockish as well! May the best peacock win.

    P.S. UrbanDictonionary is always a valuable resource for people like myself who cannot wait for Stichy's reply: "Based on the Yiddish word verkakte. It can mean dirty, shitty, full of crap, or screwed-up." It's funny that verkakt is an actual Dutch word, which is derived from "kak", which means shit, and is a common swearword. I wonder whether the word was originated in Dutch or in Yiddish, but I'm guessing it's the latter?

    I like the substitution, T, well done. If I had an odd accessory I would join in, but I will enjoy as a spectator in any case.

    You don't have any odd hats, shades, pins, shoes, tie clips, cufflinks, monocles, gold grills, ?
    Rummage thru that closet. There is bound to be something.
    I refuse to believe you went to Pitti and didn't stumble over some sort of oddity. I mean how many US Veterans can say they went to Vietnam shacked with the local prostitutes and didn't bring back some kind of STD?
