    Thanks guys!

    The square is from Rota and I purchased it in Antwerpen in a very cool Menswear shop. The sales guy actually recognised me to my surprise.
    They really have a great selection there

    Buying a Dundee Cake several Christmases ago and wearing a Gryffindor tie and a brown tweed suit that I got at Brooks Brothers in 1965. Since this picture was taken, I have had the trousers shortened. My older trousers are all too long since I have become shorter as the various components of my lower spine have degenerated.......

    Still new at this, so please go easy on me. (Also didn't have a lot of options today due to weather and other circumstances.)

    FM, for the love of whatever you cherish, please get a camera. Or a phone with a camera. Or something that takes non-blurry/grainy pictures.

    Yes, that's Ye Olde King's Head in Santa Monica. I'm going there again this weekend to get some Empire Biscuits for Empire Day (May 24th).

    Here's picture from one of the very few rainy days that ever happen here sitting on my favorite bench on the Avenue des Chumps-Élysées with the Gryffindor tie, Polo Ralph Lauren jacket, Brooks Brothers PPBD shirt and umbrella, Tommy Hilfiger sweater vest, Hermes pocket square, Orvis cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds shoes.

    (No one ever notices that I am wearing a Gryffindor tie. Sometime people ask if it's a University Of Second Choice tie. It's rather annoying when anyone thinks that I might have gone to that sort of place.)

    I'm pretty much looking at this thread for shoe ideas at the moment.

    I like the look of the Bonafes but I've not heard anything about quality. I assume it's top notch but can you speak to it?

    Edit: They're bloody nice

    Thanks! I'm, uh, not sure... :embar: It's a fairly open weave like fresco from an Italian mill that is apparently kinda middle of the road (my recollection from looking them up initially), a notch below Loro Piana, but substantially cheaper IIRC. It's a lighter weight than I had set out to get, but I decided to trust the tailor's recommendation. I think it's ~10 oz.
