A bit off topic...but has anybody noticed the HUGE list of possible titles offered to you when you sign up with Charles Tyrwhitt?

I wonder how many Princes, Bishops, Admirals, Wing-Commanders etc actually shop there?

Wishful thinking perhaps?

Definitely wishful thinking. I suspect that, like the pricing, it's part of their elaborate branding strategy.

The .ca top-level domain has a bunch of restrictions on who's allowed to register them -- Canadian citizens, Canadian registered corporations, government officials and departments, and so on.

Because of this, when you register a domain you're asked to choose which category you belong to, and domain registrars have a pulldown menu listing all of them, including "Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada".

Not really. I probably dealt with a "Sir" every day at places Like Gieves, Timothy Everest and RJ. If you have knights in there you have to have the rest.

At Gieves we had a military section with prices for restriping uniforms. The price list went all the way up to Field Marshalls and Admirals of the Fleet.
