i was told Finamore at one point. I bought it, and have been unimpressed. sleeves almost certainly set by machine based on looking at seams
white marble looks great but can stain especially with red wine. Those stains IMO are not charming because they are likely to be the rings/circles from bottles and glasses left on it overnight after a party if you feel comfortable enough to be on guard for that, they look great There are a ton of granite option so if you like stone (I do) you ought to be able to find something also there are a lot of nice wood options from very functional (e.g., end grain butcher...
Looks great. I can vouch for the Louis cut. I have a very similar jacket to the first one and it is extremely light and soft to wear, and has a slimmer fit than most other Belvest.
My doctor (cardiologist) first had me try a dieatary approach but the results fell short so now am member of the so-called "steak and statin crowd" with lipitor. Total down, good cholesterol up. Dr is very happy with the results. I would urge to first try the dieatary approach as advocated above (i.e., with lots of research too -- if just to understand the issue better), but I wouldn't fear the drug approach if the diet doesn't work. If diet had worked for me I...
It is easy. In another thread I posted a pizza recipe including for the dough. I use the same dough For grilling, make sure the grill is real hot -- that's one of the primary benefits of grilling Make your dough, roll it out to size but keep it on the smaller side. Brush on oil to one side which will first go on grill. when you place it on grill, let it dangle a bit and let the dangling edge catch the grill farther away from you. This will temporarily stick...
For those semi-mathematically inclined I would suggest doing some research on geometric means (as opposed to arithmetic). Geometric means are the right measure for investing because we add to our investments either through re-investing dividencs or contributing new sums. W. Bernstein had an article that at least used to be findable on the internet on this topic and discussed the differences in optimal portfolios when geometric means are considered as opposed to...
Joseph Williams, Style, by a long shot for basic writing. For basic grammar and punctuation any number of references are good.
i have both and am a big fan of belvest. i like isaia but when i wear it i find that i say to myself this is a nice jacket, a lot like kiton but the fabrics are less nice (though still great), and other little nits to that effect. I don't find myself saying that with belvest. to me, they are more of their own style. They're from No East Italy (I believe Verona) and the style is more Milanese, than Roman in my opinion. One caution with Belvest as I have seen and...
very much so. it has tastings for beginner through novice and serves as a great resource and it's relatively inexpensive. make sure it's the for beginners book and not one of the others.
Have you considered Andrea Immer's, Great Wines made simple? It is IMO the best way to start through novice, and I still find myself turning to her. It will help teach a very solid foundation/fundamentals. Then after that the trick is to start popping corks, paying attention, and being honest about your likes and dislikes (plus keeping an open mind)
