Quote: Um, what are you buying at 3 in the morning? Booze, cigarettes, various items to satiate the munchies, Advil, Altoids ... It's good to know if you need something, you can get it. And it doesn't even have to be illegal; most times for me, it ain't. Living in a city is the life, personally. There's so much collected in one place: want to skip from a posh coffee shop to a rare vinyl store to the Whitney Biennial to a pizza place to umpteen bars,...
I may be mistaken here, but I don't think the average Kelly or Birkin bag costs anywhere near $30K. A female friend said that plain calfskin ones start around $5K, and go up to about $12-15K for alligator (and the bags are all essentially MTM, since you request size, leather type, etc.). Special requests, like diamond inlays or Hermes silk scarf linings, would obviously drive up the price. Maybe the $30K was for a vintage bag with uniqe features? I'm not denying the skill...
Quote: A shotgun can get cumbersome when you need to make fast movements.  Plus, the recoil, limited round capacity, and size can be drawbacks.  I guess each one has it's perks. True. Still, I'd probably pick a shotgun because a) you're more likely to hit something, and most likely any intruders, b) it's more intimidating than most pistols, and therefore c) I'd hope the odds are I won't have to use it. Besides, with a decent stance, a 20-gauge...
Quote: I plan on purchasing a handgun when I turn 21.  I believe that home defense is important.   For home defense, I'd think you'd want a shotgun--handgun bullets have the nasty tendency to penetrate walls pretty well. Besides, it's easier to obtain the former, and easier to handle in high-stress situations absent rigorous training. Although, statistically, I don't know how much worth any sort of gun for home defense has. NavyStyles, like others...
Quote: Also, Robert Redford in his Cool Hand Luke days. You mean Paul Newman? If so, I second that. He was a little goofier in Butch Cassidy (co-starring Redford), but still a very cool mofo. As for wearing suits for clubbing, etc, I think you can get away with a simple lace-up or monkstrap. It'd have to be plain and slim--I'm thinking John Lobb's Perrier. No double soles, no wingtips, no cap-toes.
Quote: His character is cool?  I seem to recall him being cruel, juvenile and egomaniacal, for the most part. Agreed--and Malkovich was better as Valmont in Dangerous Liaisons. Seriously, there are vastly better style icons than Phillippe. Oh right, the topic. Paper Denim or Levi's jeans, T-shirts I've worn the hell out of/slim dress shirts, waist-length jacket/track jacket/leather safari jacket (from DDC, it's pretty cool, if seldom worn--but it...
Quote: But don't you think it will particularly pathetic on a "I-could-care-less" guy but one who is also overweight and has a severe acne problem? Sure. But a lot of things would look bad on said guy. I was commenting more on your assertion that one needs to be wealthy(-looking) to pull off this particular look, and that it's a privilege. There's nothing inherently privileged about this, or most looks, and people can wear it whenever and however...
Quote: Flipping up the collar is a privillege belonging to the few (you know what I mean*), and even then, best done only every now and then. Qualifications for flipping up other clothing items (e.g. sports jacket) are less stringent. .... *wealthy-looking (not necessarily wealthy), athletic, tall, slim, clear faced, socialable individuals Not really. Rockers have been doing this forever. It really requires more of a 'I don't give a fuck' attitude,...
Quote: The lapel, measured at the widest point (where the point is) should not be more than half the distance between the inside edge of the lapel to the shoulder seam. I thought that applies only to notch lapels. In any case: a) I like wider peak lapels in general, and b) go with what looks good on you, be they Helmut Lang-esque narrower lapels or YSL Rive Gauche huge ones. Depending on what the jacket's for, I'll go with either.
Quote: $22 to shorten a pair of jeans Wow--I pay about $12 to get an 'original hem' shortening of my jeans, but I'm in Atlanta right now.
