I still have the system I installed in my 1968.5 Citroën DS-21 while I was in high school: -Denon DCT-950R headunit...
Yesterday, my Chimala buckle-backs came in from the Farinelli's flash sale. (They were on my doorstep on Saturday, but I was not home.) They are very nice jeans. I like the detailing and the fit. Chimala advertises these jeans as "relaxed fit." Yet, when comparing their measurements, I find they are the a little smaller than Nudie RRDS's with the same size waistband, and have about the same rise. (I expect, like the RRDS's, they will stretch out a bit.) The KMW 1950 and...
I like the glen plaid tie, but I would go tieless, with a pocket square, if I were you.

I have no idea who Roy Gregory is. Or I didn't until I looked him up. VP of Marketing for a wire company (Nordost). I've never seen one of P.T. Barnum's "demonstrations," either.

And unlike Pantherella's too-short OTCs, the cheap BR's don't slip down my calf during the day. So I will probably be buying fewer...

The part and build quality will affect the long-term function of a cable in a given environment. Like I mentioned in my earlier post....

Saw a few already. What really gets me is the odd relationship between beltline and cabin: the cabin looks more like a tank turret than a car. I guess that's the "chopped n' channelled" look hot-rodders have always gone for, so it'll be a hit with GM's intended demographic. But it looks odd to the kind of person who would've stepped on a Camaro to drool over an Alfa 1750GTV or MGB GT had he been alive in 1969.
