    It comes up for me. Sometimes it needs to be refreshed if it does not come up.

    Might just be my provider - I shall use my vivid imagination [​IMG] Actually on second thoughts maybe that's not a great idea... [​IMG]
    Website doesn't seem to be doing them any favours...the only model I have that's shown is the Dante chukka, in new styles...and I got that at TK Maxx over a year ago, so I'd say they need to update! They look cheep and nasty here...in fact they are pretty cheep, cheaper than the 'original price' stickers would suggest on the shoes I bought!

    The Impregnable were going to be the top of their range shoes as far as I recall. Are they Goodyear welted or blake stitched?

    I would suggest wearing a blue shirt with this suit and tie. White washes this out.

    For a pocket square how about something with browns and creams? Like this?

    Shirt is actually very-light blue, but yes, I can see how a true light blue would be better.
    I have a big collection of ties, but still only a few pocket squares... brown and cream will be on my list.
    Thanks!

    They where all Goodyear Welted, they had some plain black oxfords that seemed to be welted too but the leather looked very cheep and damaged already, so I gave them a miss, despite being pretty much what I was looking for!
    They also seem to be consistently larger than stated...maybe thats why they're in the discount store!

    Cheers..they're just an old pair of Opti-Rays that I bought back in the 80's [​IMG]

    Yeah the smoking thing is not the best of accessories...nine more years then I'll quit [​IMG]

    whats the watch?

    Nothing special...just one of my poor man's watches...Stührling Original "Open-Heart" automatic with a regulator dial...

    Wow, nine years must be one of the longest periods of procrastination I've ever seen! [​IMG]

    1. I quit back on 03 to buy a G5 while I was still in school and said that I'd start again once I paid off the loan or turned 40. I paid the loan off about a year before I turned 40 but stuck out the last year and started again last May...now I'll quit when I'm 50 [​IMG]

    2. Stührling does make tourbillons but, as you can imagine, they're not as cheap as plain ole open-hearts...though they are far less expensive than higher-end brands. I've seen some Stührling tourbillons in the $300 to $400 range.

    Because the suit has a plain heather look it might benefit from an end-on-end in more of a medium blue. The end-on-end gives a visual texture that is nice with any solid or heather suit.

    For the pocket square, simply brown and cream might be a bit plain for that cloth. Look for brown and cream but with bits of muted burgundy/red, navy/teal and gold in the pattern for contrast. Those colors will add more personality but when muted they won't be garish.

    This was a compliment by the way. I love the look, and not many people can rock it like you do. Just once I want to see you in an Olive, notched lapel suit with the sunglasses, tie bar, and ear piece. Seriously...it would be my inaugural avatar on this site.

    I didn't take it as an insult but I've received like 6 PM's over the last two weeks with similar comments [​IMG] To be honest I was toying with the idea of DTOing Agent Smith for the Celebrity challenge from two Friday's ago.

    I really don't know a heck about watches and movements I usually just buy ones that 1) I like the style/design of and 2) I can afford [​IMG]
