Summer Tartan and White Bucks

The summer season is almost here. Nature bursts forth in gloriously bright colours and encourages us to respond with summer tones. I'm doing my bit. Afternoons spent poolside have resulted in a deep tan and blonder hair, which offset the deep crimson caused by one too many G&Ts. The warm weather calls for an appropriate summer tartan, which I am always happy to provide. In the exclusive candid photo (at left) I am shown languidly lounging about the place, delivering fogey views on an astonishingly wide range of topics, wearing a Polo RL custom-fit summer tartan shirt (Bleecker model), old Land's End khakis, and a pair of white bucks. If you look closely you can just about see a rare special limited edition J.Press heritage ankle bracelet--available to chosen iGents only.

Well done,AC. Especially the beautiful shirt. God bless Ralph.

I was togged in a similar fashion while out celebrating Royal Oak Day with the wife and daughter. (White Vineyard Vines trousers,Robert Talbott Madras button down shirt,J.Crew white/caramel saddle shoes).

Sorry, but the only acceptable ankle bracelet that a man should wear should be issued by the federal govt. Like the rest of the ensemble, though.

That ankle bracelet is pretty sad.

An ankle bracelet? And I thought they were only worn by women - easy women at that. However, terribly handy for clipping the old ball and chain onto

I agree about the ankle bracelet -- YUCK!

Ankle bracelet? I'm deeply concerned...

Admiral, 'a rare special limited edition J.Press heritage ankle bracelet' - ??!

Strikes me whoever's dumb enough to fall for that would also believe in the success of the multi-cultural paradigm and that we're all born equal...

Surely, you jest about the ankle bracelet.

I'm with Bourbon & Pearls.

Ankle bracelet? Really....out of character and of concern.

Bourbon&Pearls said...

Do tell Admiral: are you in receipt of their matching limited edition Prince Albert? Hmm? I won't tell a soul.

Sadly there's some character assassination attempts in the blogosphere. Stay true to tradition and "keep buggering on." God bless.

That's not just any ordinary ankle bracelet, it's a Chap ankle bracelet. Inscribed upon its delicate surface is the dictum; If wearer is found unconscious mix and then insert 2 parts gin and one part tonic water. wait 30 seconds. repeat as necessary then call nearest haberdasher.

Anon @ 12:11 ~ Thanks, same to you. Small dogs, as they say, bark the loudest (but their bite is weak). My detractors are right to be upset: they know that I know and am willing to say it out loud, and it scares the hell out of them.

First it is the ankle bracelet, the next out of character thing Admiral Cod will do is be caught watching Rachel Maddow on MSNBC...

I think it's simply too, too adorable that you and FEC bought matching ankle bracelets at that darling boutique on Fire Island.
