    Looks tasty almost like nougat

    It's very nice and even a bit spicy.

    I knew a lady who worked as a hostess at an Indian restaurant. One of her responsibilities was chopping the nuts for the special Indian ice cream. She chuckled that it sold quite well, even though it was regular vanilla ice cream bought from the nearby supermarket. But hey, the nuts made it exotic.

    Nah, the real Indian icecream has a different texture also tastes kind of exotic compared to regular icecream it's not just vanilla and nuts but I agree some Indian restaurants rip you off pretty badly.

    TNow, question - you are wearing light specs with a navy pant and it works there. How come when I wore them with a (not so different shade of ) navy yesterday it was awkward? Because I had a SC not a suit? Yours are true white and caramel, right? Mine are a beige canvas and cream leather. Just curious really - as I said, Ive never had specs and am unsure of the matching/combining.

    Well, I guess it's in the eye of the beholder whether my own combo actually worked or not! For colour reference, yes, mine are white/mid-brown. Actually, I wore them again today (yes, two days in a row; shock, horror!), although with a more "traditional" specs type outfit.

    Wearing them with dark colours like I did yesterday will always run the risk of them standing out too much and looking wrong. I hope I avoided that, but I'm sure some will feel differently.

    New camera...

    It shows: more light and better colours. Is it possible to step back more and then zoom in a bit (and still get everything in the picture)? That way you get less lens distortion (because of the wide-angle), especially if you don't tilt the camera downwards, but keep it parallel to the mirror.

    I shall try.

    It was easier to be discreet in the bathroom with the iphone - less so with an actual camera.

    Fuuma +1. This may be the first engaging use of cognac coloured leather that I've seen

    It seems to me that what makes yfyf look taller is the fact that his SC is very, very short. This has nothing to do with clean lines. Look at the SC hem in relation to his hands. IMO, that is way too short.

    I was referring to his lapel length, actually

    Also, I'd only care to quibble about the length if it was disproportionately short. Which it's not. No-break hems tend to help, but the jacket in itself is balanced enough, which helps him achieve his sporty aims

    No, the coat is only slightly shorter than usual; it is his arms which are unusually long.

    Well done.

    Hehe. Wait 'til I bust out the lime green ones - they go so well with the yellow walls. [​IMG]
