  I've got a Burberry trenchcoat with a button-in, camel-hair liner. It's really warm. So warm, in fact, that I've never needed to use it (although during the day in winter here the temps don't drop below 5 degrees Celsius/40 degree Fahrenheit).
  As Striker said, when you look at a pair of shoes on the Skoaktiebolaget website, if you look at the price in Swedish Krona, you'll see two prices - with VAT and without VAT. If you then click the currency icon up towards the top right corner of the product listing and choose (for example) US dollars, the price that you will see displayed in US dollars has already had VAT deducted. As an example, the Carmina classic wingtip has a price of 3600 SEK with VAT and 2880...
  Root beer is sarsaparilla, isn't it? For some reason, sarsaparilla (root beer) goes really well with a good serve of fish and chips. Edited to add: According to Wikipedia, Australian sarsaparilla is different from American root beer or sarsaparilla: Australian sarsaparilla has a different flavor from American root beer or sarsaparilla. Bundaberg brews sarsaparilla from "real sarsaparilla root, licorice root, vanilla beans, and...
Mayweather talks himself up, says that he's better than Muhammad Ali:   http://www.news.com.au/sport/boxing/floyd-mayweather-why-im-better-than-muhammad-ali/story-fndkzthy-1227313040617   “No one can ever brainwash me to make me believe that Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali was better than me. No one could ever brainwash me and tell me that.”
 @bespoken4me - I agree that the shoes on the "Classic Shoes for Men" site are over-priced, but I'm not sure why you're posting this here - did you mean to post in another thread? It looks as though you're responding to something but we haven't been discussing it at all (as far as I can remember).
 Galway, not Shannon (they're blucher boots, not balmoral boots like the Shannon). Bidding has now reached $1000.  Whoever bidders e***n and n***1 are, they have entirely failed to understand how to use eBay's bidding system and whoever wins is going to pay a whole lot more than they needed to pay. Still, that's great news for the seller.
^ Of all the chairs you've posted, I think that's the one that I like the most.   It's definitely much nicer than the "big bum" chair.
Some fabrics will show wrinkling more than others, depending on thickness, tightness of weave, colour and other factors.   I've got a few chambray shirts and in my experience, they showed wrinkles more at first but after being worn and washed quite a few times, they softened up and, once they became softer, they didn't show wrinkles as much.   Ultimately, though, shirts will *always* show wrinkles at certain points, particularly at the elbows, and there's nothing you...
  Stefan, the tie and pocket square both look nice but I agree that brown shoes would have been a much better pairing with the brown tie. My mum always used to tell me that people should never wear black and brown together and I think that her advice would have served you well in this case!
  I couldn't see her knees as she was wearing a long dress, but I'm sure that they're too pointy, too.  Seriously, though, perhaps there was a bit of professional jealousy at play there? I know that Leske's well known as a concert pianist in Australia, but he's not jet-setting around the world to play in front of adoring audiences whereas Chang's been doing that for the past twenty years (co-incidentally, since she was about fifteen...). Anyone who can play Bruch's No.1...
