Just ordered three pairs to take advantage of a Father's Day 20% off offer. I'll admit though, even with the laces, I tend to be reserved.
The link I put it in should have gone to the Dress Laces (as opposed to their Home page) :wink:
Anyway, they all look great :thumbup:

That looks like a rather nice shirt Steve :thumbup:

Are you all ready for this :!: :?:

^^^^ Ray Bans? [-X [-X

Before I moved into wearing Prescription Spectacles full time my preferred sunglasses were Serengeti Drivers; polarised and graduated specifically for (wait for it) driving with a mid/light brown tinted lens. :thumbup: :thumbup:

I now have 'Transitions' lenses with a brown tint in my Varifocal spectacles.

My sunglasses always seem to last a long time. I have a pair of blue tinted Ray-Bans that I bought in 2003, and I keep a pair of brown tinted Ray-Ban aviators in the car as my driving glasses. I love those because they are light to wear and give great wraparound cover. I think I bought those in 2008. And my latest pair must be from 2019, a pair of grey tinted Oakleys. I dropped those in a car park in Cyprus the following Christmas, and there is a small mark on the left lens, so I’m averse to using them for driving now.

Your comment about sunglasses lasting you a while reminded me that I still wear my FG-58s that were issued as part of my kit in 1990. :thumbup:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

^^^^^^ 8)

I've always liked the Aviator style sunglasses from way back when and actually have 2 pairs of Ray-Ban's...
The Aviator Polarised Mirrored ones shown above and an Aviator Polarised Gold frame/Green lens pair.
I've also got a genuine Avirex B-3 Aviator jacket to complete the look :oops: :D
...and, as this is a watch forum, a selection of Aviator/Pilot/Fleiger watches.

I’ve gone wild today and ditched the beige and gone with a loud grey.

Today’s pairing. I actually owe my wife to these shoes and socks! It was this combo, along with a bowtie, that grabbed her attention and lead her to my profile on an online dating site. And the rest is, as they say, history!

Not sure that I would go quite that far...but never say never :lol:
I can certainly have a good go at a "Michael Portillo" wardrobe :D
