So, you've just won the lottery what's the first thing you're going to buy? Or to put it another way, what have you got your eye on that you just can't justify the price for?

Easy answer: bespoke overcoat that's a cross between a coat in terms of buttoning and a cloak in how it billows out and it having a hood. Sort of Lord of the Rings or Star Wars inspired. I have vague sketches; they positively reek of the Dark Side and Mordor...

... I think that's what the smell is, anyway...

It's never going to be the sort of thing I'm going to justify buying for myself; it would have to be a gift, or the result of free money.

HF by the looks of your pictures you already have an awesome wardrobe going on!

I think my first trip would be to the jellewer for a new watch and then get myself down to Saville Row for a complete bespoke wardrobe, speaking of wardrobes I'd love to have an unlimited budget on a house build, the en suite and dressing room themselves would be amazing

Bespoke White Tie ensemble, and then off to concerts and operas across Europe. Both single and double breasted waistcoats, of course, so I can choose according to mood. If I were to get a second tailcoat, its lapels would be half-faced.

He'd be the Henry Clay Frick to my Andrew Carnegie persona
The Ted Sorenson to my JFK persona
The Reggie Love/Valerie Jarrett to my Barack Obama persona
The Mr. Smithers to my C. Montgomery Burns persona

I'd repay my Dad, then travel and decide where, besides Toronto, I'd want to buy some condos.
