    Welcome back, MoK! I see your T&A tie, and I counter, kitty-corner, with N&L: [​IMG] I sort of liked this tie-knot as the centre of a sartorial swirl, but for a clearer picture: [​IMG] See, FNB? No problem with the dimple.

    Today, took a couple of days off, so no tie for me. Not on a beach like some of our more esteemed members:

    Awesome coat - deets? And I am starting to suspect (as someone else has already suggested) that the hands are always in pockets in preparation for the next shot - the gnatty shoe shot with the perfect no break pant length (achieved by yanking on the pants from inside the pockets).

    Super! Which bag did you end up getting?

    Scholar 3 comp in whiskey, my whole apt smells like leather now! (all 600 sq feet of it!)

    Good choice! That color ages really nicely ... a little slowly, but it does change with use [​IMG]

    just brilliant. I'm guessing the stripe in the tie is also purple, referencing the socks.

    All these patterns and colors are not easy to wear. But your tasteful combination really works! A masteful appearance. I enjoyed this.

    Interesting. I can't say that I would expect a man of your wealth and taste to prefer tanq ten in a martini as opposed to, say, Aviation. Am I missing out? Regarding the preparation, however,...[​IMG]

    I can see Tanq Ten with a twist. Not so much with an olive though.

    Welcome back - you were missed. Can you please tell Neo and Pand that they are also missed?



    Pfft ... snobspeak. I prefer Tang (regular) to most "premium" gins for the simple reason that they don't neuter the juniper flavor (what some may describe as smooooth, easy drinking quality). That said, I do have a soft spot for Hendrick's and Junipero. Yum.


    +1. I've tried lots of different gins, often recommended by the "experts," but I always come back to either Tanqueray or Hendrick's. I have a friend who insists on buying everyone drinks when we're out, but he'll refuse to buy mine (I'm partial to gin & tonics year-round) unless it's with Bombay Sapphire. Sad, really.

    Hmm. Must be preference. I don't care for Tanq or Hendricks in a martini. G&T, sure. Like your friend, I much prefer Sapphire (which costs the same as Tanq in my neck of the woods). Hell, I prefer Plymouth in a martini to Tanq. Plymouth being considerably less expensive. But I don't claim to be an expert, just a law student.

    EDIT: I'll have to get my hands on some Bluecoat luft, never had it.


    I would take Vox to be and Old Raj drinker, but since he is in the land of Rum, he might choose something lighter, more citrus based, and pedestrian.

    I'm sick. Vox is on vacation. PG is on hiatus.

    And apparently you shaved?

    Looking sharp. Just have to get used to the new you. [​IMG]


    Looks great MoK.. Welcome back BTW.

    Awesome coat - deets? And I am starting to suspect (as someone else has already suggested) that the hands are always in pockets in preparation for the next shot - the gnatty shoe shot with the perfect no break pant length (achieved by yanking on the pants from inside the pockets).

    lol, no, the break on my trousers is indeed, due to OCD compulsion and a tailor who understands me well enough to get it right the first time. Coat is actually from the Brooks Brothers "Country Club" collection a couple of seasons ago. A reasonable alternative to a sportcoat when I don't really need to wear a sportcoat.

    Nice shoes. You and PG had me really considering buying these, but I broke down and bought the Alden 403 in brown chromexcel. Chukkas just have never looked right on me for some odd reason..
