There are many threads on tailoring in Bangkok throughout this forum. I live and work in Bangkok and I've used Milan Suit quite a bit for both shirts and pants. Recently I just had my first shirt done by Narin, and I like it a lot better than the shirts I had done at Milan. Part of the problem was me--I had some bad ideas, and he complied. Part of the problem is the fabric: I teach Art, it gets messy, I thought I'd save money by buying the cheapest cotton shirting. Not...
This may be a bit of a false dawn for those of us with larger feet. I haven't been by Emporium to check, but I was in Paragon this weekend. They had a nice selection of Loake. The largest size they carried, however, was 44.
I live and work in Bangkok and I've been using Milan Suit for a while. Kiet can come off a bit surly but he's an alright guy. You do indeed need to request removable stays. If you have any tweaks in mind that he finds to be non-standard he may be a bit stubborn at first but he'll do it your way. He only uses plastic buttons, he doesn't have real mother of pearl. they're decent though. I'm pretty happy with his pants when I choose the right fabric, but the metal slider...
I think it's worth reviving this old thread, rather than start a new one, just in case the OP still works in PP and needs another pair of shoes. I live and work in Bangkok, I need shoes, and have large-ish feet (12 1/2 EE to 13 range depending on the manufacturer and the last). I'll post my shopping adventures here. If i decide to have shoes made rather than buy them I'll either find an appropriate thread to add to or start one. First thing to consider in Bangkok: Most...
February many of these were audiobooks. i'm finding i listen to audiobooks more than i read, mainly because it allows me to simultaneously do something else. unless the audio performance was one i loved (like Heaney's Beowulf or hated like that Weiss fella's reading of Catch 22 i'll tend to avoid commenting on the reader's performance. 5.A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking 4.0/5 when this book first came out, it fried my brain. trying to imagine the implications...
since i've got some catching up to do i'll post a month’s reading at a time. 1. American Prometheus by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin 4.0/5 Not so much a fantastic book as a subject of historical importance (and one i find interesting). The prose doesn't sing, but the very detailed overview of J. Robert Oppenheimer's life is comprehensive, and it digs into far more than his flirtation with communism (and later persecution for it) or his crucial role in the development...
not exactly small, but not exactly towering either. except maybe standing next to Barea. to my eye Rubio doesn't really look that quick, although maybe that means he's also "deceptively quick".
tell you what, 'll decline your generous offer and stick with "not great" instead of "isn't a very good ball player." maybe it's just a question of semantics but to my eye "isn't a very good ball player" means you'd trade him for warm bodies to cut in order to generate cap room, or someone who you'd swap for Najera and think you won the trade. i actually do think he's a very good ball player, but i wonder if he's one of those whose style of play all but guarantees you...
a bit of an afterthought:: watching the Knuck-Knucks vs T-wolves and Clyde commented something along the lines of the rules have changed a lot compared to 15 years or so ago, in ways that allow smaller, quicker players, and more cerebral players to play their game without getting mauled by the big lugs. Lin is both. i think JJ Barea's coming out of nowhere was a result of that too. the game looks very different than the last time i watched a lot of ball (only a few years...
