Friday 18/11/16 - Super Short Post & This Week's Wristwatch

Okay, gang, not much to say, especially after I re-read last week's post. Hell, did I really write about buying a new toaster? 
Super-busy at work as we barrel towards the Christmas/New Year period. So, this post will mainly be pictures. 

As for wristwatches, I wore my recent acquisition, the  Oris Diver Sixty-Five, all week. 
My wife has a small selection of vintage hardcover books that she picked up back in the early 1990s. 
I've always loved the handwriting in this book. Plus the fact that the inscription was written in 1903, and also that it still survives today, over a hundred years since it was written. 
Beautiful handwriting script. 

The other book with an inscription in it is even older than this one above. 

It probably would have been a darker ink when it was written, I'm guessing.

On Thursday, I felt like wearing a tie to work. I have about thirty of them, and I figured they should start seeing the light of day again.
The dress code at the office is neat casual, but I think I may just invert the whole notion of Casual Friday and start trying to dress a little sharper towards the end of the week. 
Even if only for my own amusement.

And today, I kept my tie loose. Been steadily plowing through my workload and I'm up to date, which is good, but the workflow can change quite easily. 
That's okay. I ain't going anywhere.

Well, that's another week down, y'all. Hope you have a relaxing/productive and/or amusing weekend. 
Thanks for reading!


  1. I do the same thing re: casual Fridays. We have one of those you-can-wear-blue-jeans-if-you-donate-$5 sort of deals, as well, at my work, so on those days I wear a blazer as well. This is all done for my own self-amusement, and I hasten to add I don't have any particularly fancy threads. But I chuckled reading this, as it's always been my philosophy, as well.

    1. B Mc, 'Casual Friday' has now pretty much spilled over into every other day of the week. When I worked in the city (up until four years ago), I used to see young guys on the train wearing shirt and tie, but no jacket. Did they leave it slung over the back of their chairs the day before? Or did they not bother wearing the jacket to begin with?
      Give it another ten years and we'll be turning up to the office in our pyjamas.
      Over my dead body.
      Jacket required, as far as I'm concerned. Even if it's just one day a week.
      Keep up the good fight, sir.
