    Well, we took a Facebook-like turn to Chinese industrial history. Next up: mint juleps and horse racing in seersucker and Panama hats! Oh, and socks, lots of colorful socks.

    Nice look. What trousers did you wear? Perfect opportunity for navy trews IMO.

    Funny you asked, because I did wear navy cotton trousers. I didn't mention them, expecting the opposite feedback so often received with navy odd trousers. That said, there is clearly a difference in the versatility of navy cotton vs. Navy wool odd trousers.

    Very nice. I've been wanting to get some of those BB linen trousers. They really are nice.

    Was an episode of Walking Dead filmed in the spot where you took those pictures?

    First, some things I like about Roy's fit. Referencing a previous conversation, it is a little off, a little rumpled, and slightly clashing. All mistakes, right? Wrong.

    There are some members here who are experts at matching patterns, textures, and colors. They look immaculate. They also look a little too perfect. Too put together. Each item of clothing looks like it was carefully selected and agonized over before being put on. Roy, on the other hand, has this devil-may-care look to him. He looks as if he couldn't possibly care less what people who "dress to impress" think of him. He's not trying to impress anyone, and he despises those who do. These are all my thoughts imposed on to the image of Roy, of course. Whatever the case, I love it.

    Now here is me. Perhaps a bit more polished looking than Roy, but I take that as a failing on my part, rather than an accomplishment.
