You're not supposed to take on salary & give up top young talent too. de la Rosa is a potential 1 or 2 in the rotation & Webster is the Dodgers's #2 prospect. I hope Kasten (& Colletti) were able to get money back too.

First time w/ Chan, no? fwiw, the first pair of trousers I got from them fit tighter in the upper leg & crotch area than i...

Well, I'll post back with the final product, with a proper shirt (maybe one of the Ascot Chang's I had made while there) and shoes..
I wasn't suggesting that I had concern. I've never been to the HK shop, so I'm...

Here's what I have so far - still waiting for my shipment (just got back Monday)
Comments so far - realize that this was the first fitting (didn't snap pics on the second fitting)
Loro Piana fabric - was my first bespoke suit experience - so am anxiously awaiting the finished product.

The article says that the director wrote 2 of the shows and rewrote the rest. Looks like the staff writers weren't delivering what he wanted.
I'm surprised that I like the shown so far, especially the group tension subplots.
Spoiler alert: I was sorry to see the end of the free-riding, abusive husband, however. I think there were some good story lines to be explored. There's still other sources of drama -- the love triangle and the racists hillbillies, for example - but they are sort of standard fare.

Is this inside information or confirmed? The recent news reports sound like the Vz iphone is around the corner this time, but then months pass and a new round of stories report its inevitablity.

The diner used in the milkshake scene looks like it's been used in the movies. My first thought was pulp fiction.
Favorite scene was the kitchen scene with don and betty. She played out the range of emotions superbly. But the way the scene ended suggested the end of a meaningful role for her on the show. Have mixed feelings about that if true.
On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if Dr. Miller hangs around a bit. We do see past flings reappear from time...

I am very happy with the fit of these -- the others being a tad large out of the box. like I mentioned in the post, the pants I have on have a low rise which makes the...
