    Nice. Most will complain but I do occasionally like the "bland" look.

    Not into those shoes, though.

    In WAYWRN, I said P.'s outfit is exactly one cream silk square short of greatness. As is, too binary.

    Don't listen to him, PB. A plain white linen square always trumps a cream silk square. Always.

    How can you hate cream silk? If I could only have one square, it would be cream silk. At worst it is 80% as good as the ideal square. Often it is ideal.

    If I organize a group buy for Charvet cream silk squares, will you all sign up? With the condition that I never have to see white linen again?

    I was going to say yes until you said the last part about not having to see white linen again.

    To be clear, you can still wear white linen. I just don't want to see it again. You can Photoshop over it.

    You know, I don't need cream silk because the Rubinacci Victory square can fill that duty.

    No, no. Anyone who wears white linen has the issue. I'm trying to get you all to do what's right. It's just a crying shame I have to resort to bribery.

    I remember this was a heavier weight flannel for you. How do like the weight of this cloth?

    Indeed an awesome square. Though, I used it less and less these days. The way I poof, I wind up with the blue sky dominating the poof unless I contort to get it right. The one with the opera house ceiling gets picked a lot more frequently.
