Boil 1.56

"Ahh for the days when aviation was a gentleman's pursuit."

It would appear that SideshowBob is a subscriber of The Chap, a publication that now stands at the forefront of a nostalgic but stubborn return to the splendorous glory of etiquette and attire. As The Chap so intruigingly inquires:
What, dear friends, has become of our culture? Was not this once a country where jazz beatniks rubbed shoulders with aged philosophers in smoky cafeterias? Did not dapper men in horn-rimmed spectacles once explain the mysteries of the world to us via our crackling wireless sets? Were not public libraries the places where all human knowledge was to be found, at the fingertips of avuncular librarians swaddled in tweed? Where has all this gone?
Caught atwixt romantic and anarchic follies here at O&K, we highly recommend the sober advice on Sartorial Agony, and the Manifesto.
