Another very productive day - I’ve nearly finished season 2 of WestWing..

| Tom Ford “Cary” shades | bespoke vintage cotton “SeerSuckahhhh” shirt | GA linen shorts | Supergas |

FYI my casual shirts tend to be about 2” shorter in the body

2 more weeks before I start at the orchard..

Today was very productive:

  • morning recovery ride
  • 2 x coffee stops to catch up with friends
  • private pilates class on the harbour
  • lunch w a girlfriend
  • snoozed
  • continued watching re-runs of “WestWing”
  • picked up Niece from gymnastics
  • daily pics within the MAGIC 2 HOURS
  • drinks & dinner with ex Alfa Romeo Car Club owners

What will tomorrow bring? More of the same..

| Tom Ford “Cary” shades | bespoke linen gingham spread collar shirt | RLPL cotton shorts | LeatherSoul Alden “MilkShake” saddle shoes |

"Gardening Leave" involves early morning rides, mid-morning break fasts & reading, lazy day then maybe a drink with friends - But thought to make an effort today as I’m getting messages/emails about me not in suits or jackets. Don’t hold your breath as I have all of Feb off as well..

Details | P Johnson cotton Solaro “Soraro” Jacket (part of suits) for GW | Muji map of Kyoto hankie used as pocket square | bespoke OCBD | Muji belt | Rapha jeans | Gucci “classic” horse bit loafer |

Last day of 5 day Same Denim Challenge - DONE!

A debate sparked between my Niece (10) & Nephew (8) regarding backpacks:

  • Niece said both but not loose

Sheesh!
