A lot could depend on your complexion: are you the type to wear a lot of warm colors--yellows and golds and that sort of thing? If you are, there would probably be some synergy with those amber stripes. If you have a fair/cool complexion with blue undertones, and prefer white/blue/icy pink shirts with your suits, it might not be the best match. Not relevant to this suit, but does anyone else associate very closely-spaced pinstripes with the 1980s?
Obviously, if your date is blind, the answer is "anything you want". Hey, someone had to say it... Seriously, give us a venue...picnic by the fishin' hole, or opening night at the opera?
It's in my Netflix queue now, and I've picked up the Highsmith novels to read sometime, after I make it thru SR Donaldson's new Thomas Covenant tome...
Quote: i saw 'purple noon' first and loved it. then i went to see 'ripley' because a friend of mine had read the book, was a big minghella fan, and she said he stayed true to the novel where 'purple noon' had not. i haven't read the book but regardless the original film is better, with much better casting. one question: at the end of 'ripley', he kills his lover. doesn't this open up another can of worms and how he will dispose of the body, etc...? instead the...
Quote: I was mightily disappointed by Heat. Pacino was annoyingly overacting throughout (although DeNiro was terrific). Overacted? Ya think? Well, OK. I did notice that, but I guess I made allowances... "'Cause she got a...GREAT ASS... And you got your head...ALL THE WAY UP IT..." Quote: Replacement Killers is a weak ripoff of the much better Hong Kong films Chow yun Fat has made (check out God of Gamblers, for example) ...
Good luck getting these guys to divulge their sources. I could swear I've bought from closetchix but I can't find a record of it anywhere. My dark olive HF Canterbury from lovedesignersclothes was just as described--it isn't my favorite suit, but that's not his fault. I'd buy again. I just won a Barbera tie from finest4less. He e-mailed yesterday saying how there was a small pen mark on the back of the tie, and would I mind if he sent the tie anyway and refunded the...
Some favorites not yet mentioned: The Big Lebowski (obviously) -- for many reasons--it's as quotable as Python, and Jeff Bridges is almost frighteningly natural in the lead role. He has an elusive diffidence in most other films I've seen him in, but he knows The Dude inside and out. How you gonna keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Karl Hungus? Koyaanisqatsi -- There simply are no words. Actually the first of a recently-completed trilogy. Unfortunately...
Quote: Forum members seem always to be asking opinions about plaids on EBay. Often it's real hard to tell what you're buying, so you often wind up buying defensively-patterns so subtle you can hardly see them. I wonder if this isn't just a general timidity born of conformity. I unconsciously look at solids and pinstripes as universally "safe" and plaids/windowpanes as "daring" to "tacky" despite any personal affinity I might feel. Of course, here on...
I recently devoured this book after my wife received it as an office gift. It seems either you're the sort to get irritated by pervasive mistakes in written English, or you're not. As an admitted member of the former group who often empathizes with the author's desire to carry a permanent marker around town with her, I found it entertaining and not a little vindicating. It was also interesting to learn how many of the details we agonize over when writing--the necessity or...
19. I can't decide whether to be gratified or alarmed by this...
