    I'm always impressed by how good the crease is in your trousers. This may be the oddest compliment I've ever given.

    Very nice. This photo almost looks photoshopped. I like the brown and grey here, but I wish the shirt were solid white though.

    I'm an inquisitive person by nature, so couldn't resist looking the etymology up (http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/burnt-orange). Burning in this case refers using a thermal calcination process to alter the colour of a pigment through burning it with lime (no, not more fruits, the mineral!). Obviously, I'm sure many modern pigments are made differently, but the name clearly stuck. Presumably, all "burnt" colours invoke the same original etymology of calcination involved during their synthesis. Another little factoid to file away in the mental attic...

    Thanks AAS, no tweaking required (like I know what to do!) just good old English sun.

    Never considered plain white, now you mention it. Just had blinkers for that combo. Maybe next time, thanks. :cheers:

    White, pale blue or what you have all equally nice.

    What are the shoes Cleav, they're very nice.
