 this is BEAUTIFUL
At home for my sister's wedding and apparently my mom has put up a bunch of old photos around the house. Thought you guys might enjoy this one:
German members: what do you call it when someone masquerades as taking the high ground but is in fact just trying make their enemies look bad by comparison? I assume in German there is one word that covers this.
 Well let's hope Synth doesn't do any of that then.
 I had my eye on that for awhile, waiting for the price to drop, but now that it finally has, I think I've changed my mind about it. Lapels too thin, center vent, no chest pocket... it's definitely cool, but I think it wouldn't be right for me in the long run. Thanks for keeping your eye out for me though.

I think the phenomenon of certain eras having such a distinct look is going to be diluted somewhat now that the internet has made different styles more available. Don't get me wrong, there will still be a distinct "201x look" for suits when we're 10 years down the road looking back, but I don't think it will be...

Mid-2014 fashion realizations / proclimations   So first, on the issue of travel shoes, I should say that my MMM GATs have proven to be solid travel shoes for bombing around Europe on a couple occasions and other places too. I don't get the people saying their CPs are more comfortable because, for me at least, the GATs are vastly superior in terms of comfort and support.
