    As it so happens, I'm wearing cream flannel trousers today, Fox worsted flannel in "cricket white". So I made a special effort to photograph them for the weekly challenge. Apparently, I'm really getting into this thing...

    I also use Floris Elite, though I usually reserve its use for the colder months, as it is a warm, spicy scent. (I am wearing Penhaligon's Racquets today - which, of course, since I like it, has been taken out of current production - grrrrr.)

    I wore Floris No.89 for years and years, until it got difficult to obtain (I think Floris almost discontinued it at one bleak point). So I switched to Elite. My wife much prefers Elite, as it turns out, so even after No.89 became obtainable again, I mostly still use Elite. I hardly ever vary my cologne as, to me, it's almost like part of one's identity.

    Recently, one of my daughters was in a grocery store and knew I was in the store walking up behind her because she could smell my cologne. She has never encountered anyone else wearing it in her entire life. This was probably also a side effect of my being utterly unable to detect my own cologne on me, leading to a tendency to, um, overindulge.

    This is one of two lovely twins, handmade i UK. Living Voice they are named, mine are the OBX - R2, but they come in a range and you can even have them bespoke if your wallet allows it. http://www.livingvoice.co.uk/products-auditorium-speakers.html

    Very nice with tube or pure class A amplifier. I drive them with an other UK handmade beauty, Sugden Masterclass, warm, controlled and utterly musical sound, with lot of power which is a perfect choice for these speakers. http://www.sugdenaudio.com/masterclass.htm

    Do you actually have a wedding to attend, or are you just showing off? Stunning, in any case.

    The chair will return shortly, but I'm really liking the colors I can get like this.

    As always, thanks awfully to everyone who likes my pictures and, as always, thanks to everyone who takes the time and trouble to post pictures. I always enjoy seeing what everyone else is wearing.

    For fans of American Arts & Crafts, here I am sitting in the Greene & Greene designed Oaklawn Waiting Shed in South Pasadena CA, where people once waited for the Pacific Electric cars to take them downtown.

    Brooks Brothers tweed jacket, blue and white University stripe OCBD shirt, and argyle socks, Land's End paisley tie, generic Italian Silk pocket square old (55%-45% Made In Scotland) Viyella sweater vest, heavy cotton twill Orvis trousers, and Allen-Edmonds khaki grain McTavishes.....

    Almost great, but I would have preferred a light blue shirt and/or a belt to ground this outfit. (Belts seem to garner little approval here but I generally find them pleasing to the eye.)

    Virtuoso attention to detail. Would also be nice (although not necessarily better) with a subtly-patterned Ascot adorned with a pearl-face pin to match your cufflinks.

    One pattern too many. Clearly you like the tie and wish to feature it, so I'd swap out the shirt for one with a plain fabric.
