    The main thing I intend to get is a pair of mid-grey flannel trousers. I've been after a pair for ages, but never found exactly what I want. I'm hoping Ed's Panta range will fill this wardrobe gap. We'll see.

    The other thing I always keep a look out for is either a slim black Chelsea or slim black penny loafer. I know EG does very nice versions of these, but I'm not really wanting to pay EG prices right now, so will keep an eye out for alternatives.

    Apart from those items, I can't think of too much else I'm looking for right now. Maybe a few tattersal shirts, if I get round to it.

    I am actually having a new dressing room outfitted in the next few months in our master suite floor so that my wife and I can each have our own dressing rooms. For mine, the floor plan is U-shaped, with a bank of windows at the center of the U, and also a skylight in the center. There will be walk in closets on either side. I think that nearly all my clothes and shoes will fit.

    The room is currently a double study, but I am moving the study and the library to the first floor.

    It's fun.

    You want to get mirrors on all the walls, ceiling and floor, so you can catch a glance of yourself from every angle as you disrobe/dress Just a glance mind.

    Cheaper alternative to these as they are beyond my budget. Suggestions welcome

    Do you think that I should put in a urinal or two for WAYWRN photographs?

    I feel that the lack of porcelain in my photos undercuts my street cred.

    Yeah, go for it. May I also suggest fluorescent strip lighting to help create the correct ambience.

    Stuff I'm already having made up:

    Winter Shepherds Check SC
    Heavy Grey Herringbone Tweed SC
    Brown Plaid SC
    Light-Mid Grey Nailhead Trousers
    Very Light Brown Flannel/Cashmere Trousers
    Mid Grey Trousers
    White, Blue, Lilac Shirts

    Think I'm going to add a pair of brown moleskin Trousers and a Brown Shep Check SC to that

    I really would like a new pair of brown wingtips, but the shoe hasn't hit me yet, still not sure on what i want, and with all the $$ tied up with the above, it may have to wait until the year's end.

    Always on the lookout for chunky sweaters.
    Would consider a new donegal sportcoat if I found the right one.
