I don't know why this practice would be more affected than anything else we do. But ask yourself, how did you feel when your friends embossed their envelopes to you? Personally, I would appreciate it if my friends did this and have considered embossing/sealing my own correspondence. There are many inexpensive wax stamps for holidays and/or simple designs (in addition to initials or crests) that give you some ability to personalize the stamp for your receiver. For...
I don't usually comment on movies but I hope by commenting here I can save someone else from wasting a few hours of time. This movie just sucked. One of the worst movies I have ever seen. If I ever run into Clooney on the street I will get my ten bucks back.
Can anyone comment on Brora 30 year old? My shop has one bottle which is probably causing me to experience a false feeling of scarcity. If bought, it would likely not be opened for several years.

I think your proposed wardrobe is fine, but you might want to go for real...

I have found that using the purple elastic band off of the asparagus stalks works great. It is also a great conversation piece. I keep a drivers license, and two credit cards with some bills (I try to mostly only carry $100's.) It stays in my front left pocket. What I like the most about it, is I never have to worry about it...
