    [​IMG] - Cap toe looks a lot more elongated in the pic as I pulled my trouser cuff back and focused on the shoe to get more details - I do need to upgrade my shoe collection though (as well as my photography)... [​IMG]

    Edit: Pocket square is white background - I think my linen would've been better but was not available. Thanks re: the tie, its wool and I quite like the texture.

    I usually come back to the same combinations over and over.

    Actually, the last time I recall you wearing this, you had a green tie and a white linen ps. I remember it because it inspired me to try the same combination. This also looks great, as always.

    That looks really nice. It looks very relaxed.

    I like that on SF, I'm still considered a young guy. Being closer to 40 than 30, I usually think of myself as middle aged.

    I'll always be 25 at heart though.

    You don't hit middle age these days until after 40.

    As I'm closer to 60 than to 59 at present, hearing someone whine about the onset of middle age makes me grit my teeth. If it comforts you, however, I still think of you as a young guy :) . Also, please note that though chronology is inevitable, maturity is entirely optional. :satisfied:

    I can tell you that "opulence" was heavily featured in last night's show at the Met Museum, as the first gallery was devoted to jewels - including some quite large diamonds (Golconda, the world's major source of diamonds until the 19th century, was one of the Deccani sultanates). The locals must have picked up on this - the members' preview was quite well-attended - both the galleries and the Petrie Court (where refreshments were served) were full to overflowing.

    Alas, back to an ordinary Wednesday . . .

    Suit - BB
    Shirt - Lewin
    Tie - Andrew's Ties
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Cufflinks - Metropolitan Musem of Art
    Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand

    TBH, I'm quite happy growing older. Most (non-physical) things get easier, finances are better, et c. As you say, luckily, maturity is optional.
