    I don't know, though, maybe I just think longwings are ugly.

    That is the most substantial and coherent thought anybody has ever expressed about me here. Thank you . . . thank you.

    I think this is a great idea,except it may not work for winters as it gets really cold. I would prefer same color but with different weights. Are you going to have double pleats?

    Double pleats, yes.

    The OneTrouser, like the OneShoe, will not be absolute. I will need other trousers, too. Perhaps I'll wind up with a winter OneTrouser and a summer OneTrouser.

    Not enough people cared about my wife's Genovese so I lost the spirit.


    I did.
    It looked delicious.

    Like what I would want my OneMeal to be.

    Oh, and first to guess the exact cloth wins a prize.

    Navy corduroy. John G. Hardy. The light version of around 16 oz. What do I win?

    This gets so many negative FooPoints that they become positive again: +5.

    Madame Paulette shrunk two pairs of my Ambrosi/Woodhouse pants so I need new odd trousers. Woodhouse and its whipcord are no more. So, I have a new OneTrouser planned. Five pairs. Same cloth, same color. That is all.

    Holland and Sherry has a nice mid to light grey 11/12oz whipcord that would serve this purpose well. I dont know the book but the number is HS954000.
