$215? Wow, they've come down a lot in less than a year. If you want similar clarity of sound from loudspeakers, you need to focus on maximizing direct sound and minimizing reflected sound. In addition to room treatments - think practical, good-looking things such as bookcases - you need speakers with narrow, constant directivity. Earl Geddes (www.gedlee.com) sells probably the most advanced line of such speakers out there. Tannoy's big (10" and up) Dual Concentrics work...

Not that interested in the economics debate, but as a policy question I think it's more interesting to reframe it thusly: Would one rather have all these makers, turning...
I've always reached for sportcoats more. My "uniform" for basically all of my adult life has consisted of a sportcoat, often with jeans on my own time, an open-collar shirt, a pocket square, and whatever shoes I felt like wearing when I dressed myself. I've never worked anywhere that required wearing of suits, though I own a bunch and enjoy wearing suits.

I dislike creases in khakis for any use. Quote: Originally Posted by Spark Polo...
I bought two pairs of shorts I consider stylish this year. The first are lightweight flat-front khaki cotton ones from Edun with front pockets that button shut. They are not cargoes - the GF hates them! - but they have a convenient back-hip welted pocket that's the right size for a cellphone. I could not find a picture of them online. The second are cotton flat-front POW check "walk shorts" from J. Press. ZegnaSport also has well-cut, albeit wildly overpriced,...
Mix of 2 and 3-2, with some 6x2 on top. Not a big fan of 3, 6x3, or 6x1, or 4xanything.

Just my AU$0.02 so not worth much in US$.. Pulling up an old thread because I had never heard of this brand and did a search on it... I never saw a Xacus shirt until the pink linen one with two chest pockets and a button-down collar I bought on Sunday. I had never even heard...

Best OEM car stereo I've ever heard was a Dynaudio-branded Volvo system with a well-placed center channel. And I don't typically like Dynaudio's home or studio speakers. Which begs the question, why does a deaf person like you like it? Because someone had the foresight to slap an "audiophile...
One of the articles said that Jil Sander is consulting for Uniqlo. Maybe I need to check them out.
