Fulcrum & Lever
The ice machine is busted and I’m learning to drink whiskey neat.
One of my Brooks non-iron shirts died by Indian curry recently and I’m not particularly sorry to see it go.
Having accumulated all these lovely madras shirts I’m thinking I don’t want to look as nerdy anymore.

I must have lost interest in Mad Men when poor Sally Draper walked in on her grandmother giving Roger a blow job.
Edit: Not her real grandmother, I now remember, but still …..
Gerard Butler gets to be the new George Clooney. Lucky Guy.
jkadushin asked: hey there - saw the post on Quoddy...didn't know they offer a 12.5. I have struggled with this myself and even more so b/c I am a 12.5C. I usually end up at either 12D or 13B. Do you know if they offer a C width? what other makers have you had luck with? My rancourts - as nice as they are - are still a bit too short at 12D.
You may be in luck as the Quoddy website does allow you to order a 12.5C. I have had mixed success with Rancourt. They have a “larger than usual” 12 last that worked for me with a chromexcel pair of loafers but the cordovan pair are a bit snug.
As you know, shoe sizing involves a lot of hit and miss, the problem being most acute with loafers. FWIW, I came away from an hour spent at a Crockett and Jones shop empty handed but with the belief that one of the British sizes was a good approximation of a US 12.5. Alas, they are a bit out of my league.
Glad to see Quoddy has gone in for this look. Great news for me as they offer a 12.5 which none of the other New Englandy makers do.
New Mexico to Rhode Island. Starts tomorrow. So where are the best places to waste some time along the Connecticut coast?
