    Want To Look Like a Rugged Working Man, But Don't Want To Work Or Get Dirty...?

    I often wonder what Jeeves would think about today's world.

    Want To Look Like a Rugged Working Man, But Don't Want To Work Or Get Dirty...?

    Shucks, I just gave away a whole bunch of those to Goodwill. I should have put them on Ebay.

    18-month bespoke plan (Thanks Korea!)

    This is the lantern festival I wish I could see: https://www.arirang.com/News/News_View.asp?nseq=197268 You should take your wife if you haven't seen it yet. It's just a short walk from Seoul City Hall, going towards Gwanghwamun Plaza. It will be going on for another week or so.

    18-month bespoke plan (Thanks Korea!)

    Smoking is banned in a lot of places now. In Seoul they have glassed in areas on the street (often near subway exits) where people go to puff away. It's a little bizarre because they have little "back to nature" type ads in them. Drinking is one place that Korea is very different from the...

    18-month bespoke plan (Thanks Korea!)

    Just saw your email (I am usually on the Trad Forum). My wife and I love Seoul. It's a wonderful and exciting city, and unrecognizable compared to how it was in the 1980s when I first visited there. On one level, very super-modern and artsy, but on another level a deep Confucian culture that...

    Stubble?

    Many years ago I watched a documentary about India that focused on a poor elderly relative living with a wealthy Indian family. They treated him like dirt, he was essentially the family "gopher" having to do all the mundane tasks such as stand at the bank for hours depositing family checks...

    What's with these bead bracelets?

    If you are talking about what I think you are talking about, it started in Asia. About maybe 10-15 years ago, men started wearing bead bracelets with different minerals (jade, onyx, amethyst, pink quartz or red coral, etc.) because somehow it was supposed to impute different beneficial powers...

    Did you see KJP got married?

    Since we're bringing out all the old baggage, it's too bad "WASP 101" isn't around any more. Now there was a true cad and poseur.

    Did you see KJP got married?

    I can't believe people are going after Muffy again!

    Did you see KJP got married?

    Glad they got married. She seemed like a nice girl to me, and I was always worried over the years he would turn out to be a cad and trade her in for another model. But it turns out it was true love after all. More power to them.

    What Watch are you wearing today? Show us your Wrist Watch!

    Daniel Wellington is making a killing in Asia with their watch on various preppy bands. https://www.danielwellington.com/us You see a lot of them there. I think the watch is overpriced, especially since it is one basic design and they probably get the watch made in bulk for $20 a piece...

    Japan's embrace of Ivy style - great article on the how and why

    How one dressed has always been of importance in Asian societies. Confucianist thought prevalent in China, Korea, and Japan centered on a well-regulated society where everyone knew their station in life and relationship to others, and part of that was specific requirements on how people in...

    Should I have this watch face restored?

    Here is my two cents from someone who made a serious mistake in this regard. When I was a kid my Dad gave me his old Movado military watch that he had worn in World War II. (As he was moving up the business ladder, I think someone had told him he needed to wear a nice gold watch, not a...
