I wonder what you mean by "well-equipped" when you say you don't want to study natural sciences and anything involving math. Somehow I would associate the term well-equipped with courses like chemical engineering, physics, medicine etc. involving lab research. Also, why do you want to look for work outside the EU? Is this a personal wish or because you think there won't be any jobs for your qualifications in the EU? If it's the latter, let me tell you the chances of...
I think that's kinda shocking.
While I tend to agree with this breakdown the most, it places W.W. Chan customers firmly in the realms of six-digit salaries. I wonder if that's really true of all the Chan followers on SF.
Does moderntailor still do the 2-suits-for-price-of-1 offer when you order a suit for the first time? I vaguely remember they used to have an offer for first-time-suit-customers where they send you the first suit, then you tell them where the fit needs changing (without sending the suit back to them) and then they make a second (otherwise identical) suit with your fit modifications taken into account at no extra cost. Do they still have that offer?
Are chinos less formal than jeans in the US?Where I live (Germany), jeans is about the lowest you can go short of wearing shorts. Chinos, while obviously not formal either, are still a notch above jeans.

I have observed the same problem (points curling inward) in most of my custom shirts from the Far East. It's annoying as hell and if I don't find a shirtmaker in Asia whose collars are not prone to this issue, I may decide to change to more expensive European makers. Haven't tried starching or anything. Ideally this should not happen even w/o starch - it certainly never happened on even the cheapest RTW shirts I used to wear.
of all time: The Chameleons (UK) of currently active: Doves ^those two lists with The Cure, Siouxsie and The Banshees and EatB on them are not bad.

Like any other band, Radiohead has a basic, signature aesthetic which you can recognize from record to record. They work within certain stylistic limits, which are actually pretty broad for a band making popular music. If they made a new record full of klezmer music or big band standards, that would...
