i think generally H&M IS "SF approved". it's a good value proposition. i have a couple of H&M suits in dark brown and navy, and i get compliments often on the dark brown (i tend think, though, you get compliments whenever you wear a suit colour outside of the usual navy and charcoal, regardless of style/cut/quality). the suits have a slim fit british cut. i also like their dress shirts. H&M dress shirts probably have the best designs/colour combos at the price...
as others have said in this thread, the wise thing to do is to send that email to everybody thanking them and telling them how wonderful they are and how you've enjoyed it there. this is clearly an opportunity from your boss to give you a nice send off. think about it. the other option is he sends an email out -- if he did this, people will wonder if you left of your own accord or if you were fired. sending out an email means you go out with class.

auberge du pommier dinner. tasting menu. me and my partner unimpressed. good service tho. best thing was a soup with truffle, egg, and if i remember, cauliflower cream. that was frenchy and yummy. the had a good cheese dish. but that's more a function of just having a good supplier of brie. nothing else was memorable. the main dish, beef and scallop, was just okay. the scallop was over-seasoned. ew. if there's anything a fine dining restaurant should do...

If it works for you go with it, but it's not something I'm going to try. I am aware that the girl from the original post doesn't consider me to be unassertive in bed, she considers me to be unassertive in life. I was out with her at a college bar the other night where I...
i have slow roasted prime rib for years, and everyone who's ever tried mine has loved it. i don't buy into rubs, adding garlic, etc. etc. i'm sure those are good ideas, but a properly slow roasted prime rib needs no seasoning before it's done. i don't like to risk the salt drying up my meat. slow roasting a rib is ALL about the temperature and little to nothing about how it's spiced. instructions: 1. bring roast to room temperature. this will take hours. i...
abject poverty or no, you need to look acceptable if you want a good law firm job. go get yourself a suit now. depending on your body type, a H&M/Zara/etc suit is affordable and looks good. A men's warehouse suit is fine too, IF it fits well. since you're using the suit for law firm interviews, it goes without saying you should get a navy or charcoal suit, not black.

Bam. Much ado over very little.
isn't there a thread here that's been going on for years on this topic? yes, yes there has. anyway your suggestions are fine. since you want a tasting menu your options are more limited -- i also enjoy Splendido and Canoe.
