    The owner of this particular shirt would certainly have chuckled at the irony of your assertion had he not died two years ago.

    Here are a couple of the more entertaining ones we've done. Hand embroidered like this requires 3-4 hours each.

    How about the shape of a gallows upon a cat's chest.

    Placing the monogram inside the collar is a chic and discreet touch. I ask that the company making the shirt leave their label off to make way for my monogram.

    All my Douglas aeroplanes used to have the heraldic crest emblazoned on the tail fin.

    Alas, no more.

    I have ether in my handkerchief. A habit I got from my friend, the Baron Rodolphe d'Erlanger.

    ... and bats in your Inigo Jones belfry, but I suppose that's what makes you so entertaining. SF's own King Ludwig, builder of sartorial castles in the air, or in the ether.

    Actually Gottfried Semper and peacocks in the War Garden, wandering among the battle scarred shells placed on marble votives.

    The only castle in the air I have is a Magritte.

    You grew up with peacocks in your garden too?[​IMG]

    Ah, yes, I remember leaving your war-torn country on a DC-3. You may recall that one of your Ministers (probably in collusion with the clandestine services of a foreign gov't) had asked several Trad banking firms to bid on loans for armaments to repel those horrible Marxist guerrillas who had posed a threat to your Principality. (That their leaders came from the ranks of the nobility went unheeded by your own advisors). I can't recall which (then) Trad firm ended up with your contract. Perhaps it was Brown Bros. Though I wanted to stay to the bitter end (was there ever an area, even amidst revolutionary activity, with more lovely cafes, cigarettes, and women?), but felt it best to flee. The collapse of your rule coincided (but is anything ever a coincidence?) with the collapse of Trad rule on Wall St.
