Re: Tropical ivy

/\  I can't remember if I posted that pic before, I might have, but I love the old guy's straw sombrero ....

I also remember Vinny the Chin's long-running crazy act, he gave bathrobes a bad name for a while but luckily they mounted a major comeback and everybody loves them again .....

Bringing it all back home dept.: Brooks Brothers used to have really great bathrobes, they were go-to birthday, Christmas, and Father's Day gifts

Interesting buttonhole deal going on with his...

As for Brooks... the styling on their robes from the early '80s (flap side and chest pockets, shawl collar) is the same styling Bean has for their chamois cloth robe which is excellent quality for about $75...
