This might be the best thing I’ve seen in a while:

A reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan to a pretty girl seeking a rich husband

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here.
I’m 25…

My first purchase from Henry Carter recently arrived and I must say, I am impressed with the product.  My burgeoning love of tweed forced me to act during their winter sale and I am excited to wear it when the temperature drops in the coming months.  Count me in for when the next special order of Henry the wombat ties go out!

‘muji-rushi’ and wardrobe staples…
When I first started exploring the idea, in my own head, of a capsule wardrobe of staples that could make any man look well dressed, timeless and beyond trends, I was working in the denim industry in Japan. The idea that there are staple pieces, un-affected by trends or fashions, was something quite empowering. After all, the biggest issue with the fashion industry for most isn’t looking good, it’s looking up to date. If you can just focus on looking good, being comfortable and appropriate to the occasion, you have won the battle against any fashionista.
Be it a classic grey three-piece, a blue hopsack blazer, white tee or a pair of oxfords, the principle should be the same. It should be of exceptional quality. It should be of exceptional fit. It should stand out only for these first two points, no branding, no paraphernalia.
So when we thought to commision our first pair of denims, we had that in mind - a fit that was flattering, a quality of raw material and make that is exceptional, and no visible branding. Made locally in Hong Kong from a green cast Fukayama denim, with aged laurel wreath donut buttons and rivets & burrs, the unwashed selvedge denim is stitched in a classic yellow and orange thread configuration. The cut is a little more tapered in the leg, to best fit with a more elegant shoe, the rise neither high nor low. We added a brown suede patch, left blank, in place of a branded oilcloth.
My pair is in for it’s first wash, so fit pics will follow. ethandesu:

Went to Bo.Lan last night during honeymoon number two in Thailand.  We ordered the set “balance” menu and I have to say we both loved the experience.

Identity, Integrity and Self

  • You don't have to be skinny and on trend to look good, merely to be noticed in certain circles that are ultimately inconsequential. And on that note, you don't have to look good to be of worth or value. You haven't failed at life because you don't know how to tie a bow tie or which denims should be washed and which refrigerated. You are simply on a different track with different values to a small contingent of online personalities.
  • None of it really matters. How you live and whether or not you can count that life a success will, ultimately, only be determined by you.
It’s almost wedding time! Here are some quick photos I took doing some last minute organizing for the big day.  This, incase anyone actually reads my posts or follows my tumblr is the reason for my absence.  It’s almost wedding time!
