I have a pair of tortise acetate Persol eyeglass frames that I've had for a few years. They used to shine and be brilliant. I keep the lenses clean and polished but cannot seem to get the frames clean. There is a definite haze or film where my skin contacts the bows of the frame. It's dull and the frames are just lifeless. I've had this on previous glasses before and generally replaced the glasses. However, I'd like to keep these and maybe even swap lenses out and...

That's great advice. I...
Wasn't sure if I should be posting the deets. But this is the semi-anonymous-internets, right? :P I'll be a 13 at DHS working in an IT Security position. I'll apparently be in a position where I'll be interfacing with different groups and doing frequent executive presentations. My director specifically said the 13s and below are shirt and tie and above is a business suit. So maybe wearing a suit all the time is pushing it a bit. But maybe a sport coat is a nice...
First, I need to say that while I'm definitely an avid reader of this forum and long to be able to drop huge dollars for clothes and labels like some folks, I've got a baby on the way and will be dropping down to a single income at the end of the year. So keep that in mind with your suggestions. I will soon be transitioning to a job in Washington working for a federal agency. I emailed my Director to find out what sort of dress code I would be looking at. ...
Why did I read the title as "High-end arugula"? I was all geared up for a luxury salad discussion.

This goes for the American P.O.V., so not directly addressing your question. As an occasional kilt-wearer myself, I will tell you that the Kilt-Community is very sensitive to tartan lineage and authenticity. However, the general consensus is that you can wear pretty much whatever you like, provided you are prepared to explain and can justify it. For example, I am of very little Scottish descent. However, I have a great deal more Nordic heritage. There are actually...
The only think I can think of is that the act of flipping the collar back down while the button is fastened may put stress on the collar. But I dunno. That's a stretch. I keep the collar down, button starting from the second-button and then fasten the top button last.
I would edit that to remove those people's email addresses at the top, if I were you. Otherwise, they're liable to be "scraped" from this pager and added to some spam list. This is why I don't forward or post emails like this. I've had my personal, private email address "leaked" like this and immediately started getting a crap-ton of porn spam. I really reamed the person who forwarded my email address around after that. Just a bit if friendly advice. Nice...
