    I'm not a loafer fan much, but I like those. They strike me as an around-the-house loafer. Not something I would wear outdoors a lot, but perfect for loafing around indoors, or for a quick trip to the market.

    Rolex 50th Ann green Sub.. The original before they PHKED up with the ROLEXROLEXROLEX etched into the inner rehault..

    I was on my way to pick up the IWC BP 5004-01 when I got side tracked stepped on a frog!

    The last time my AD called to say get in quick (as they don't sit in the stores long enough), I again nvere got that as I got side tracked & went home with a PAM233J!


    How do you decide which watch to wear with so many nice ones?

    Just received the Hickey Freeman "Vanguard" DB from the Presidential Collection. Reportedly, almost entirely made by hand (button holes suggest otherwise) with handwork clearly visible in the collar, shoulder and edge finishing.

    The silouette is nothing like the typical HF's. Slim (to the point of being a size smaller than tagged), more darting, shorter hem line and more structured shoulder.

    Its off to the tailor to finish the sleeves and hem the pants.


    Also getting my MTO black suede Martegani's this month.

    Oh - and bought a pair of Suede EG's from Whnay.

    Almost done with my "What are you buying for winter" list.

    correction - I'm almost done for fall. The Winter list has yet to be written. Although I think I have only a few items on the list;

    Rider Cordovan Captoe Boots
    Light Grey or Blue Flannel chalk stripe suit
    Dark Purple with white pindots tie (eyeing Charles Alexanders 6 fold)
    Dark Red with white pindots tie

    Thanks, I'm curious to see if they've slimmed down at all, right now they are on my do not buy list.


    TC, well the fit is actually not too bad. It is a half size larger, I'm usually a 15.5 and this is a 16. It's not as fitted as I'm used to but not as tentish or billowy as I feared. However, I still may take it to my tailor when I get the chance and have it fitted a little better but overall I'm quite happy with it.

    Please forgive the poor quality of the photo. My phone dosen't have a white balance setting [​IMG]

    Thanks for the feedback. Looks nice. That appears to be a bit slimmer than the few that I own.

    No problem. You were not the only person to bring up fit issues with JWN shirts. Naturally I was a bit fearfull that I had just purchased a Sea Island Cotton tent but was happy to find that it wasn't. I guess not all JWN shirts are created equal [​IMG]
