    Getting lawerly here.

    You can take the lawyer out of the law but not the, uhh, lawyerliness out of the lawyer.

    Still have my length, unmade.

    Oh, really? Now, would that be more or less of an imprudent choice?

    They do have some very nice women's RTW, including some gorgeous cashmere tunic coats.

    Two blazer suits, one flap patch pockets, one plain open patches. The new one suit.

    I have to deny this on the basis that it rests on a logical impossibility.

    LL triple check so that you can matchy-match with AY and Will?

    We could pose for a small, medium, large picture, which would almost be as epic as a shoe circle.

    No, I was never able to get my hands on the stuff. Anyway, I think Manton would be less concerned about that than what I picked.

    Is Manton your mantonsimageconsultant?

    We could make money on that sort of minor spectacle.

    I think he'd say I defy him too much for that to be true.

    a = x [true for some a's and x's] a+a = a+x [add a to both sides] 2a = a+x [a+a = 2a] 2a-2x = a+x-2x [subtract 2x from both sides] 2(a-x) = a+x-2x [2a-2x = 2(a-x)] 2(a-x) = a-x [x-2x = -x] 2 = 1 [divide both sides by a-x]

    I remember, many moons ago (The late 90's) almost.....almost ordering a similar pattern and colour from the Tonik Mohair book. That ain't Tonik though. Plain weave cloth for summer?

    Angora? That would be a bit soft for the trousers. Harrisons Moonbeam is a Lambswool and Angora mix but it's jacketing. Incidentally, Mohair is from the Angora goat, but the stuff in the Moonbeam will be from the Angora Rabbit.

    Would you agree that the fronts on the Solaro look more square than what we're used to seeing online from them...more English?

    - B


    Unfortunately, yes.

    Yes. (Sorry for answering a question directed to someone else.) I think it goes well with Solaro, which makes me think of something crisp and military. In fact I'm not sure I like it with such soft shoulders. I've often thought about ordering a Solaro suit, but I think it's quite difficult to pull it off in one's twenties or early thirties, so I'm postponing it for now.

    a = x [true for some a's and x's]
    a+a = a+x [add a to both sides]
    2a = a+x [a+a = 2a]
    2a-2x = a+x-2x [subtract 2x from both sides]
    2(a-x) = a+x-2x [2a-2x = 2(a-x)]
    2(a-x) = a-x [x-2x = -x]
    2 = 1 [divide both sides by a-x]
