    Claghorn's Jury Prize - in Clag's thread of 20+ thumbs up postings, the initials CJP have been taking on multiple meanings. I believe Clags was merely complimenting you, and expressing the idea that you might be awarded his coveted jury prize, were your posting today to make it to the other thread. (For once, I believe the local populace was NOT talking about dick, which is refreshing.)

    I'm confused. Is the dick refreshing or the not talking about it? Because, you know, with you who could really say? :)

    Doesn't February come round oh so soon? Looking forward to our next rendezvous

    We have snow, but not on your scale...

    You know, it's the pause that refreshes, not the dick. I'd elaborate, but were I to veer into the mechanics of mansex, the locals will suddenly get very cranky.

    No time to chat; barely time to post. Been a very hectic but productive day. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    jfrater, really nicely put together. You have multiple Rubinacci items too? The mind boggles.

    Cleav, those wholecuts are smick-as.

    No worries - not to go on too much but it's actually a matt mauve and navy blue, and not purple/purple. I agree that would be tacky!

    Love that SC, and nice combo overall jf. What's the jacket cloth if I might ask?

    Royal oxford shirting would play much better, IMO.

    Betel, really like the subtle interplay between the shirt, jacket and tie, but something about the jacket and square together doesn't seem optimal to me. Not sure what to suggest as an alternative, though I think I'd prefer plain white linen hank to that one. Do you have any other suggestions within your own collection? Perhaps something that picks up or compliments the jacket's tones better than the green and butter in the square? Wish I could better articulate it, but for me it's as much an exercise in identifying what works or doesn't and trying to figure out why (more GNAT level perhaps). Naturally YMMV, and you may be perfectly happy with it.
