I'm having the same issue.
I've worked with a few people who look great on paper and are just the worst employees. The things that help them succeed in an academic environment make them shit at working in the real world.
Getting ties for the whole wedding party? Go to the BB outlet. If not, then get the one from BB. If you're talking about the standard semi-butterfly and not the pointed or batwing, I've had that tie for a couple of years and I like it. Good quality, ties well, made in the USA.
You really think someone shouldn't participate in a black tie event because they've got a vented jacket? There is most definitely a difference between someone eschewing the rules in favor of "creative black tie" and someone wearing a correct rig with vents. I'll pose this question. Which of the following would be preferable - a vented single button peak lapeled jacket, or an unvented 2 button notch lapel jacket?
If that reasoning were sound, then it would apply to BB's suits as well. Of the 4 fits offered, 2 have side vents. In fact, the cheapest suit offered on their website is sold as separates and the $448 jacket comes with side vents. Right or wrong, the single vent is a style choice, not a shortcut.
I don't doubt that there might be some cost savings, but I very seriously doubt that savings is significant enough to dictate stylistic choices of even mid level RTW for the sake of saving maybe a few bucks. Taking a quick look on the BB website you'll have a hard time finding a side vented tux, and with some rigs at $1900 the use of center vents was not a cost cutting measure.
I don't know that I agree with that. How much is there to be saved by using a center vent vs side vents? And I've always paid the same having a RTW jacket altered because, regardless of vent style, the alteration is coming from the side seams.
Ask Shirley Phelps-Roper where her bastard son Sam is. Apparently she does not like that.
Running errands this morning I go to make a u-turn on my street to run upstairs, drop off some groceries and head in to the office. I signal I'm turning left and pull the wheel slightly right so I can make the turn. I do this every single day without a problem. This work van for a cable installer comes flying up and proceeds to cross the double yellows to pass me on the left as I'm turning left on this one lane road. He realizes what I'm doing and lays on the horn, and I...
Getting married in June and have a block of rooms reserved for guests at a historic hotel that is walking distance from the reception venue and the bars downtown. Just received word that the university has purchased the hotel and they will be closing in May.
