I've been casually house hunting for a while, and I'm particularly picky single dude. I find a beautiful 4-bedroom house built in the 1930's... it's got all the architectual details I hope for... nice hardwood flooring throughout, spacious rooms, high ceilings, crown moulding... basically, space and character. It's also just been renovated throughout and is priced rock bottom as part of a state-funded program trying to revitalize home ownership in certain Syracuse city...

I had a hard time taking that off after trying it on. Quote: Originally Posted by SoCal2NYC Yes, he was more important then. But to the guy going ot...
Reduced to $145.
Agreed that you must polish them, and also +1 on never using the quick shine lacquers, paints, etc. They will only ultimately serve to dry out the leather, and will crack and flake in short time only making your shoes look crappy. Polishing protects your leather from the elements and from drying out; it's essential you renew this "protective layer" regularly and not just for appearances sake. I'll also add about polishing: If you can, find an experienced shoe shine in...
2009 brings hope to phase-out most of my current suits in favor a few better made ones (a Freeman's hopefully and if budget allows maybe a Mr. Ned custom). I've recently made a trip to Carl at CEGO for my first fitting and to pick out a handful of fabrics, so 2009 also brings with it the exciting point where I can start tossing out my poor-fitting OTR (and mediocre-fitting MTM) shirts. I'm really looking forward to receiving Carl's work. As if new suits and shirts...

Straight across the front with the jeans lying flat, I get: Leg opening - 8" Thigh width - 10.25" Waist - 18" (across the front) They fit slim in the legs. A bit more info on the Even Stevens.
Reminds me of something Rye GB aptly said about a pair of my shoes in the WAYWT threads....

Anything you haven't had a taste of yet. You'll be surprised how you might find something you'd never otherwise think of very interesting (or find out you truly hate something). Sociology can be pretty interesting regardless of your field, or a history course to give you a deeper perspective on a culture or issue, or dabble in a language even if briefly: Even a little Latin will give you an interesting background on entomology and a million other random things; a little...
