    Your mysterious voodoo magic worked; it's baking hot & sunny today. [​IMG]

    Fit & pattern look very nice; I'm sure the material and construction must be so too. Personally, I find the collar a little too scoop-shaped/wide/open, but if that's what you like, it's certainly well-executed. Thanks for posting it; bespoke knits are not something seen on the board often.

    My inner nerdy side wants to say that venn diagrams aren't histograms; they're abstract depictions of logical relationships. So relative circle size is unrelated to size of the data set...

    On a more sartorial, and far less neurotically pedantic, note, I know a few drivers of rather nice cars who have a few bits of logo'ed gear too. They never wear it unless at a meet, exactly as you say. I don't understand it, myself, as the cars in question certainly speak for themselves anyway. The closest I've got to an answer is simple pride in the maker's traditions and that the gear is a rough equivalent of a club tie for them. As long as it's only worn in those kind of settings, I suppose you can avoid the phenomenon in that episode of Friends where Joey buys all the Porsche clothes, and one of the others says, "It looks like a Porsche threw up on you".

    Talking of potentially vomit-inducing...

    Suede loafers would have been a more obvious choice, but I wanted the shinyness of calf as a quirky contrast to the textured everything else. Not sure it worked entirely, but at least there was method to the madness! Square is silk, for the same reason of trying to break up the textures a bit.

    I just checked and didn't see anything familiar. Different photo's today, I suppose?




    How about that? :) I'll pierce a puppet again tonight and you get the same thing tomorrow. You're welcome.

    Sweater is beautiful, but I can't help but stay stuck on how great those pleated trousers look. My buddy swears he "can't wear pleats" because they "look like MC hammer pants." I keep trying to tell him that if he has pleats that are well done and wears his pants where they were intended to be worn (instead of around his hips), they'd look and feel great. This is a perfect example!

    Don't know why I thought you would know this, could be jet lag. This photo on their site is me. Actually my first WAYWRN photo.

    Not that I mind.

    Nice outfit!

    Your wedding ring looks similiar to what Spoo is wearing.
    Somehow I thought the gentlemen of MC would go for classic golden rings?

    TB, imo clapy has been lucky and has both a better looking shade of skin and hair than the guy you posted.

    Ah, I didn't know that.

    I think you can consider it a tribute, though I feel they should have asked for permission. Perhaps they didn't know the source, because in the past they have asked permission to use some of my photos. Nice pic, btw.

    Spoo, I like your shoes a lot. Unique without being weird.
