English Titles

This morning I put an order for a couple of shirts that were on sale from Charles Tywright. Why an English company? Well I figured that not too many folk in my area will have them and it satisfies my Anglophile tendancy (although I have never been across the pond I do hope to go there next summer). While I placed my order I was asked to chose my title. WOW. The English system of salutations: not only the American minimal of Mr. and Mrs. and Ms. but they had Bishop, Rev. Admiral, Baron, Viscount, etc.

What an enjoyable shopping experience.
