If my legs were that pale I wouldn't worry about whether or not my sock was showing. Get a tan.
S&R Liquors. They have two bottles of Darroze right now, a '70 and '79 Cheateau de Gaube. Nice people and a nice selection of less expensive armagnacs including a few nice Casteredes.
Thanks. The 1970 Gaube is really exceptional. It is known as one of the "true expressions of armagnac." It's quite powerful. Think the artisanal brandy version of a 25 yr. old cask strength single malt scotch. You'll enjoy it. Trying to close a deal on four more bottles of Darroze I found recently (including a Gaube 1959). The oldest bottle I had was a 1893 Domaine de Cavaillon that I bought at auction and subsequently traded. Didn't get to taste it! The Tesseron is pretty...
The Germain-Robin XO is quite exceptional for its price point. I have resolved to collect Darroze Armagnacs. The 1970 is incredible, which is why I have two.
I had a single shirt made by MyTailor out of the Thomas Mason Silverline book. It was fabric F53256 (was $125).

Really? Apparently most of you live on your knees. People are proud that they are expected to answer their bosses e-mails at 6:00 AM? Proud of the "cache" (extra lulz) at being the first...
Between 8-9.10-11 on the weekends.You seem to be trying hard to justify those 5A-9P days. Sorry, dude.
What a stupid idea. Start going to Cars and Coffee meets in your area where people actually want to talk. Plenty of Ferraris and other nice cars.
I bought some Nordost Flatline speaker cable off of eBay. I don't "believe" in cables but do believe in looks (or lack thereof, I don't want to see cables) and quality of termination. They were cheap, construction seems to be of high quality and their color disappears nicely against my wood floor. Nearly invisible
