Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly was great though.
Ardbeg 10yo. I just knocked my glass over and it poured out over the bed. My girlfriend, who doesn't enjoy the smell of scotch and can detect it 10 m away in an empty glass, will not be pleasd...
Just to make it clear: Bestiality is not legal in Scandinavia (well Sweden anyway). The law against bestiality (tidelag) was indeed removed but that was mostly because it was placed inside the law banning unnatural acts of sex, also including homosexual sex. Nowadays bestiality is covered by the cruelty against animals law. I really don't know if anyone has ever managed to plead out of conviction by claiming that the animal was actually enjoying it but i highly doubt it....
Sterling is great. I've flown with them to Prague a number of times. Much nicer than Easyjet and Ryanair but costs about as much. http://www.sterling.dk/sv/flight
Whilst writing this I am thoroughly enjoying a glass of Ardbeg 10 yo. Though a long-time fan of Islay whiskies I'd never tried this one and I can heartily recommend it. It requires great strength of mind to be able to stop drinking once the first few drops hits your tongue. Anyway, my question is this: how do the Japanese distilleries match up to the Scottish? I've heard that the climate in Japan is very good for whisky but I've never tried it. The bottles look...
Of course you should dress your best even at 19 if you have that inclination, It's important that you start early so you have time to make all the mistakes and try out all the options. I think the point is that for many of the members of this forum it makes perfect sense to pay 500 dollars or more for a pair of shoes because they've tried an enormous amount of shoes and decided on the best. Same thing with going bespoke, when you've figured out your personal style and...
I would contend that those shoes are neither dress nor Oxfords. This aside, I would give them a pass. The soles are just too clunky.
I've been wondering the same thing. A Farrutx shop has recently opened in Stockholm and I went to check it out. I'd say most of the shoes were of the light blue, crocodile skin with golden buckles variety. However, there were a few gems. Some of their ordinary dress shoes were actually quite nice looking. I'm more curious about the quality, the price was around 260 euros, are they worth it?

I'm getting the feeling that this is one of those occasions that you don your white dinner jacket. Depends on the temperature though, seeing as they are mostly used...
I'd say a general one is the old "wear your clothes; don't let your clothes wear you". This goes beyond looking comfortable; it also means that your clothes should help bring out your personality and not look affected or fake. This is, of course, something difficult to fix if you can't see the problem yourself so I'll move on to some more tangible rules of dress. 1. Always wear good shoes, you can get away (barely) with a lot of ugly, ill-fitting pieces of clothing as...
