Never had a tie that I loved as much as my Drake's from the Andover shop. I didn't pull the knot tight, nor did I dimple it but just to demostrate that the lining has jsut the perfect thickness. Feels great, is tough and get compliments on it every time I wear it. Have to get many more from them. Marinella is good in that department too. The RLPL are a bit too soft for me, Alteas don't have the right feel to the silk and PRL are jsut too wide at the bottom to look...
Dude with cool height here: 6'2" leaning toward 6'3". It's weird though, in the US I felt relatively tall but here in northern Germany I'm just average Too much viking heritage in the area I guess (I'm blond and currently grow a full beard...). Oh, I'm 18 and weigh 180 pounds. Upside to that is that around here the height is not much of a problem because a while ago they increased the height of the "standardized" german they design things for.
Best frames on the market are Silhouette's for me. I have one of them: lightest frames in the world (NASA uses them for their astronauts), practically impossible to break as they have no joints and are made of a special titanium-alloy, rimless so you can have any shape of glasses you want, you can have them in a ton of colors (I have a very dark brown with a pearl stripe in the middle) and they are available in sizes so you get a perfect fit. They're all made in Austria....

You mean you prefer one of these either really thick (NY style) or incredbly greasy pizzas over a pizza that can be had in Germany? Most pizzas around here come realtively close to the original as I don't really know any restaurant that has pizza that is not...
Actually it's 0049 for Germany.
In that case display it proudly. It's just that I've noticed how americans wear their crappy cameras (lots of kodak's or even small analogue cameras) around the neck or shoulder... Especially when you're wearing cargo pants putting the camera in your pocket (-> not looking like a tourist) is just a smart thing to do.
I'm afraid to say following about Europe: Germans are infamous for wearing white tennis socks with sandals, shorts are common in the cities even among older people (of course all except business people). You shouldn't have much of a problem here. Following is what can be used for the "american-litmus-test": - avoid white tennis shoes- only americans wear them - avoid A&F-style baggy pants/ shorts- no one around here has that many pockets on his pants - avoid...
Sorry, but with the flash it looks as if you dropped some paint on your shoes... I'd strip it off, find a good polish that carries blue (I think Burgol does and Saphire d`Or should be available too) and apply it over a layer of a black foundation. You'll end up with shoes that actually underwent some kind of antiqueing (sp?) and will look good under any light. Besides, you probably don't want people to notice that you have blue on your shoes but just the nice effect on...
Having grown up in Beck's town means that I'm somewhat partial to Beck's. They actually make a few other beers for the local marked one of which is Haake-Beck Kräusen that is a filtered several times. Nice beer on a saturday evening. They make St. Pauli Girl too, just that no one around here has ever heard it.... Pisner Urquell sure is a nice beer- very clean taste and hey, you can see plenty of people drinking it around noon in Prague (been there half a year ago and...

Right now I'm in those precious last months before the final exams and...
