GS, I like that you're wearing chinos, demonstrating that they're not automatically "dress casual" attire. I like the modern look to it; was the crease a conscious choice? I'm moving away from creases in my slacks, but I like how it pulls together and raises the dressiness of your outfit.

I like to take the little punched out piece of bread and toast that guy up too, good for dipping in the yolk.
Though I'm unsure of the quality, you can get some pretty stylin' and socially conscious shoes from Adbusters. I'm not sure if I buy into the political ideologies or motivations behind them, but at least they look neat: You can find more here. Hope this helps, I haven't had experience with them but just trying to pass on a link for what looks like an edgy shoe if you want an alternative. They also make a very Chuck-like sneaker if you look around their site for it.
I'm wondering if there isn't a quality difference that comes from making just one product. The Japanese denim brands, seem, and I may be speaking out of ignorance here, to only make jeans. They know jeans. They know what customers want, they know how to construct them and how to handle the materials. They've been doing it for awhile. On the other hand, if brands like Hermes and LV are dipping into denim to expand their brand instead of make it their brand, are they going...

The actual capture is mostly for show I suppose (and the opportunity to pin some additional charges on these guys). The people they talk to are all over 18.

I've worked in ceramics before and had a fair share of my things break and shatter. The whole equation is cost of repair= usability x invisibility of seams. If you want to use the china only for display, then there are a number of inexpensive things you can do. Epoxy will hold ceramic welds nicely, and even elmer's glue can hold it if you're not putting water in it. If you want the piece to stand up to close scrutiny by people who will be drinking tea out of it, I'm not...

This will not end well.
Ah, I hadn't seen the money issue. I think the way to tactfully bring it up, if there's ever a tactful way, is to talk about the borrowing from Mom. Ask her if there's anything you can do for her, and be in a listening and not talking mode. I wouldn't even bring her husband into it unless she says something first. Remember, your problem is that you're paying Mom, who is, in turn, giving that money to Sis. This guy, although an attractive target for frustrations, actually...
Does your sister feel like this is a problem? I ask because things like this routinely come up in columns like Dear Abby, and the inevitable result is a case of Not Your Damn Problem. Your sister could have plenty of reasons why she's fine with him not working that she doesn't have to share with you. The situation is unfortunate but this sounds like a case of questioning your sister's judgement and feeling to a degree that you know how to run parts of her life better...
