    Four things:

    1. You are always natty+. Statistically, I have to limit pics of you because you have so many good ones, and you are also one of the few who are generous enough to provide delightful context to your photos...which is cheating! (Just kidding.) You're debonair...deal with it, bro bro.

    2. I love cotton suits, but while that suit is very nice, some of the details don't convince me. I think that Mattypoo and I both mentioned a few things about it.

    3. I have a lot of prejudices about bow ties. I like them soft, tied carelessly, and small in dimensions...your plaid tie was your best bow for me. The Churchhill above is nice, but slightly perfect in a way that paradoxically knocks a point off.

    4. And the most important thing: Voxsartoria's Weekly WAYWRN Subjective and Totally Unfair Digest is not necessarily a "best of." It is subjective. It is unfair. It is a digest. And if I have time to think about it, I try to make the selections relate to another or to themes that I like seeing in the course of week.

    How's that?

    I was pleased Phat Guido was honorably mentioned again and was not going to comment....BUT THOSE BLACK SHOES ON THE TAN SUIT ARE HORRENDOUS...YUCK

    Perhaps PG can take a retake photo at a latter date...but with brown shoes to please the faithful

    - [​IMG] I still have a laugh as I must be one of the most OCD affected poster as I do not just list the brand but also the material, colour & at times the year or model..

    What do you call that stitching on the lapels again, PG? When do you have it put on a jacket?

    I really like this.

    ... wait.... am I supposed to be looking at the tag inside the tie?
    If so, I can't quite read it. Cleaning symbols?

    I'm always grateful to be included, but did I seriously get in twice last week in the same outfit? That's brilliant. Bill, please explain...

    In the first photo, you are merely the accessory to Ambassador Bingey. I give you props later on.

    Well it's either this or they eat everything and all of a sudden there are hundreds of them. There's a shocking new trait apparent in most people of the past generation or so to distance themselves from the actual process of animal slaughter and the enjoyment of meat eating which I find nonsensical, delusional, and quite disrespectful to the animal itself.

    Rabbit shooting isn't really an enjoyable sport, it's a necessity to the people whose lives depend on agriculture. I do my bit to help out when I'm away from the Metropolis.


    +1 James...Hugh Fearnley Whitingstall is great on TV as he makes the carnivores face their victim.

    Shooting rabbits is fun Down Under as they are a vermin so strange that they are even mutating against calicivirus....we will be back to the 500 milion figure of the 1950s...
