I've heard that cordovan shoes fit looser than calfskin. If my foot is ~EE in the Trubalance, would a cordo E longwing fit? i hate this mail order shoe-shopping nonsense...

I'm sure there are pre-owned investment books from college or business schools that would be better suited for a new investor. Look on NYU, Dartmouth, or MIT websites. Try to find schedules and required books for the class. Then, hit Amazon.

Second, don't launder them too hot. Good...
Magnanni shoes - way too pointy for me, but I didn't realize until I wore them. Luckily, Last Call still took them back. Also, a Robert Graham shirt. When I bought it, I wasn't familiar with the label. I bought a conservative blue and white stripe with a maroon design under the cuff. Hit the Borgata and saw all the bros that swapped their Ed Hardy out for the Robert Graham at night. I wanted to puke.
the first thing i thought was "gym shorts"
i prefer the cleaner look of the half windsor with spread collars, especially for business. polo collar means four in hand. sometimes i'll do the four in hand with the thicker ties so it doesn't look too ari gold (nothing wrong with that - just not my style), but i'll play around with the tie to make it look more even.

Take the remaining money you would have spent on the Black Fleece nonsense and buy: (2) pairs of respectable dress shoes, dark brown and black. Nothing...

For 250-300 it's a good value for what it is in comparison to other mall brands I can't get my arm into a Canali suit so it wouldn't matter if the Canali was free. My biceps stops at the armhole, and it's not like I'm Lou Ferrigno. For the record, I...
again, the Sony MDVR-700 is what you want. looks and performance. plus, the fact that almost all touring DJs and producers use this should tell you they're good. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...uctId=11038999
