    Rubinacci jacket in Worsted Alsport. I won't bog you down with captions: the subject likes to express her own story.

    Very nice jacket.

    Thanks. I call her Monday since she's my favorite jacket and the first one I wear each week.

    A Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150. It's just a little point-and-shoot.

    Simple, yet quite poetic. Did you name each of your OneShoe 'OS-1', 'OS-2' and so forth?

    That is such a great, classic combination of colors in the fabric. You can mix and match with so many basics that it would be an ideal travel jacket. Good choice!

    Beautifull coat.

    I have the same camera ; which setting do you use to make these shots (Simple MAcro, Food shot)? Do you tweak the photos before posting them?

    Friend, I have more free time than I'd like these days.

    That is an excellent thought. Up until now, I've just been moving from left to right.

    Mafoo, that fabric is amazing. The colors are [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks. It does seem to work with everything. I need more brown jackets.

    I just leave it on auto and take multiple shots to get the auto-focus aimed at the right spot.

    Nice fabric. Though I would like to see the jacket in full swing. Cant judge a jacket without seeing the whole thing...

    You guys have seen it on me a couple dozen times. I'll see if I can dig up a photo, though.

    Part time/guest columnist gig for Esquire. Serious.

    Up until now, I've just been moving from left to right.

    Well, amidst all the talk about your OneShoe army, I don't think anyone asked if you had or would name them, although you had discussed the possibility of adding some fold-down fabric tabs for identification purposes. Fwiw, I sometimes do the left-right thing myself, especially with shirts, just for the sake of variety. However, I don't own 2 identical shirts... Yet!

    And if I find myself passing over a certain shirt too many times, it usually ends up in the next round of donation clothes.
