J. Press Emblematic: Four Province Shield

Not very springy/summery/seersuckery/madrasy but I saw this on HTJ and realized how vacant and incomplete my neck is without the navy one. Father's Day, anyone? On sale now.

Enjoy with: Electric Light by Seamus Heaney, Dubliners by James Joyce, Anything by Yeats, a Peterson full of Rattray's Red Rapparee, (granted, that's from Scotland -- I realize there's a difference...) and a glass of Crested 10 Jameson (all of which I have at my immediate disposal.)

Extra credit reading: Ireland's Four Provinces

Holding Court (In Style)

One more tennis related post and I'm done (for now.)

The classic and my favorite racquet of all time. (I used the 85 6.0 for a while in college.)

Apparel: Boast, Lacoste, Fred Perry, Wigwam, Adidas Rod Laver, Adidas Stan Smith

I'm curious, does anyone have a favorite after tennis drink?

The French Open, Renè Lacoste, and Roland Garros

Congratulations to Nadal on the win today. That was a well-played final. Besides all the great tennis action, one of the things I like about the rich tradition of Roland Garros is the ubiquitous Lacoste logo. I'm not sure why but I've always enjoyed the crocodile. (And I prefer it over the oversized RL polo players at the U.S. Open.)

The man himself with the original crocodile.
