    Nice. Last I heard Steve Jobs on the right spire, Bruce Willis on the left. But I think changed hands a few times since then. - T

    Bono bought Jobs's apartment.

    TC, nice try but you're still prettier. [​IMG] Just kidding. Your other half is stunning.

    Hardly. Henry is looking like Gerald Ford these days.

    Vox,

    I really appreciated that you started this, during the year. Now at year end , it's even better.

    I was going to ask that you give us a year in review, but I see you have started already.

    Cheers and safe New Years.

    JP


    +1 on that....This thread is dangerously near to "Pinned" status...[​IMG]

    You like it, the San Remo? I'm not big time enough to know people who live in the San Remo or the Dakota (to the left). I do know a couple who lives in the Kenilworth, the poor covered stepchild on the right, home of the merely rich.

    And so finally we have the latest edition of Voxsartoria's Not-So-Weekly but Still Entirely Subjective Digest. Christmas week was a bit slow around these parts, what with all the festive merrymaking, and I've been feeling lazy, what with all the mince pies. As such, today we're doing a special catch-up Double Digest, Betty and Veronica style:

    [​IMG]

    This being SF, perhaps I should instead be using the new, trampified versions:

    [​IMG]

    Anyhoo, on with the show. What with our holiday hangovers, let's start with something stylishly subdued:

    [​IMG]

    And a lovely sober tie:

    [​IMG]

    I don't know about you, but I'm feeling a bit taxed already. I'm thinking it's time to take teh edge off:

    [​IMG]

    That's better. Holdfast, ease us back into things:

    [​IMG]

    A nice outfit, but then he ups the ante with the scarf of the week(s):

    [​IMG]

    Vox, in a blatant bid for digest inclusion, gives us the bowler of the week. You'll note he also seeks to exploit my weaknesses by sporting chelseas with his bowler, Steed-style. Vox, you wanton hussy. I'm surprised you didn't opt for a satin tie and pearl tie pin.

    [​IMG]

    Steed, however, looks slightly askance at the bowler placement and suggests a jauntier angle:

    [​IMG]

    Maomao gives us a pleasing pairing of colors and textures:

    [​IMG]

    NOBD helpfully writes his own introduction:

    More grey flannel and brown suede.

    [​IMG]


    And Gregaz offers a fantastic shirt and tie combo:

    [​IMG]

    My, this is hard work for the post-Yuletide season. Let's have a nibble with the madeleine of the week:

    [​IMG]

    Is it any wonder my trou are too tight? Perhaps it's time for more comfortable clothes and a bit of fresh air:

    [​IMG]

    While we're dressing down, Gnatty gives us an instructive lesson in casual:

    [​IMG]

    I don't normally go for this sort of coat. Guys try to dress 'em up and they just look off. But Gnatty wisely goes the opposite route and dresses it down:

    [​IMG]

    As such, he receives praise for his frays.

    Meanwhile, Luftvier successfully navigates the treacherous waters of the bowtie and elbow patch pairing ...

    [​IMG]

    ... and, in the process, he earns the Timelord award for his similarity to the new Doctor Who:

    [​IMG]

    As the holidays draw to a close, we have to get in our last-second partying:

    [​IMG]

    Though some of us, to borrow a line from Don Henley & Co., can't hold out that long:

    [​IMG]

    But nobody wants to go home now, when Labelking's got it going on:

    [​IMG]

    However you spent your holidays, whether raising your glass during an evening out ...

    making new friends ...

    [​IMG]

    frantically checking SF ...

    [​IMG]

    braving the elements ...

    [​IMG]

    or sporting a tophat as you sipped a Holly, Jolly Mocha ...

    [​IMG]

    I hope you'll take a moment to pause to reflect ...

    [​IMG]

    on the year gone by and all the things you have to be thankful for:

    [​IMG]

    Happy new year, everyone.

    Great choices again, Doc. Thank you for keeping my 100% record of being featured in this whenever I post a WAYWN.

    Great digest Doc! Thanks, and may you have a pleasant new year.

    If I had a $100 for every time someone mentioned my physical similarities with the new Doctor Who, I'd be able to buy a Rubinacci.
