OMIL schooled me (as usual) with the first pick; Pause by Four Tet. This is from 2001 but good music has no sell-by-date.
If you listen to NPR you will recognize track 7.
Yes, the Field tie from Pierrepont Hicks is in my Santa letter, but for this UK gift guide going with a Churchillian polka dot, via Beau Ties in Vt.
The Imperial War Museum has a specially commissioned polka dot bow tie as well.
What gift list is complete w/o some schoosh. Floris No. 89; citrusy, woody, the choice of Ian Fleming.
More?? A Cup of Jo is running a whole slew of great gift guides. And ValetMag has a good one too.
