    Never would've picked that color shoe for that fit, but I like them. That sweater looks better on this fit than some of the prior showings. Nicely done.

    No, there's GTH and there's looking like a circus clown. If you wish to wear something bright/loud, it's best to keep it to a single item and keep the rest subdued.

    But that's just IMO :foo:

    I like how the relatively subdued cardigan and trousers make the shoes pop out.

    NYR, out of curiosity, who takes your pics? Do you always go out with a tripod close at hand? Totally serious and I'm not trying to be funny at all.

    A girl can dream.....

    Haha. I have at least another year before I smarten up. Thanks for the compliment.




    Was that you in the white van that had free candy and cashmere cable knits scrolled on the side? [​IMG]




    Maybe if I lost the square it would be a little less over the top? Thanks for the advice either way.

    Cool look. I feel like this would flow better with some royal blue trousers and a casual boot. Maybe some cuffed selvege. Looks cool either way.

    Really nice look. I'd have gone with a chunky back belt, but it looks great either way.

    Missus likes your shoes.
    I will steal the cardy.

    also, between you never looking at the camera, and my death stare, I think we might average out to one normal human.




    His children. He trains them well.

    You've obviously never used one, really easy to get a book. I have four of these + regular bookshelves (lots of books) and they are both easy to use and don't take much space. Now they've become a bit ubiquitous so it is better if you mix it up with another solution to have some diversity in design.

    I have stacked books before... If you actually need to use them frequently it becomes a pain in the ass. It's pretty, just not terribly functional.

    Which I realize that you may not actually care about.

    Our house is so bad we have two classics sections in two different rooms.

    See, the cool thing about stacking books though is you don't need a shelf to stack books. you can stack them on other things to keep the piles manageable. I've been told the book hoard in the room with all the windows was once a dining room table. I'll also confess to having used a large number of art history books to build temporary shelving for some linguistics paperbacks once or twice, I wish I had pictures.
