ok forget it, I got it... just came to me where the error in my thinking was. Solved.
15 years out of school and with a non-science degree under my belt, my maths is a bit rusty. Need to brush up for a computer-based test. The question is this: "Some tourists return to the same country several times in the same year. In 2000, it was noted that in Italy 80% of tourists made a single trip to the country, 15% came twice, and 5% at least 3 times. How many individual tourists visited Italy in 2000?" Then there is a table: "Tourists staying at least 1 night...
I'm a bit baffled by the admiration for The National in this thread. They are good but they hardly blow you away. They are certainly a long way from being the best live band I've seen. Not bad, mind you, but not spectacular either.
A few very good (English-language) ones off the top of my head: Jude the Obscure (Hardy) Of Human Bondage (Maugham) A Passage to India (Forster) - or any of his other novels Brideshead Revisited (Waugh) The Way of All Flesh (Butler) Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte) The Picture of Dorian Gray (Wilde) Lady Chatterley's Lover (Lawrence) Portrait of a Lady (James)

I've had five shirts made by ModernTailor. I picked average back/average shoulders for a couple of the shirts and bent back/straight shoulders for the others. Can somebody knowledgable explain how exactly this information impacts the cut of the shirt, because to be honest, after experimenting with this in five shirts I have the impression that it makes f**k-all difference - here's one example of each: average back+average shoulders bent back/straight shoulders

Very good film. Have seen Talk to Her and All About My Mother from Almodovar, both of which are also very good.
The tailors I went to in VN and China have invariably told me I needed 3.5 for a 2-piece. We're not the same build (I'm skinnier but also taller than you); don't know how that impacts the length you need.
To each their own - I have nothing against bd collars as such, but would certainly not wear a tie with a bd collar myself (unless the buttons are hidden). There is something about the combination that makes me think of a man who wears a belt and suspenders at the same time.
