Just got this RLPL bomber in. The best suede I've ever put my hands on. Suede ribbing at the hem and the sleeve and no lining except the sleeves. The leather backing is super soft as well. Incredible. Almost didn't get it too.
I went to the liquor stores around me, knowing that Weller 12 and Birthday Bourbon had been released the day befpre. Apparently someone came through that day when they came in and bought EVERY CASE of both that came in to every liquor store.
Very true. I was considering it in the scope of plastics, as I know a few plastics guys that have PAs close for them (as well as some that would be appalled by the idea), but I guess I didn't really think about the pros and cons with regards to general surgery applications. It makes total sense though to take it on a case-by-case basis
Is there any possibility of an ivory shawl collar dinner jacket this S/S from Formosa? I know Greg said earlier S/S Formosa hasn't been finalized, but this might be a nice addition to the tuxedo for summer black tie purposes. Along with another tobacco linen suit (OOS in size 50 for the two on the site )
I do know of a fair number of PS's that have their surgical PAs open and close for their procedures here in the States. Having a desire to join the field myself, though few years away from applying to residency and graduating, I find this topic fascinating and polarizing among surgeons.
Honestly when we redid our kitchen appliances, we got rid of the microwave/hood that was an eye sore and focal point in our kitchen and replaced it with a much thinner Viking hood (with recirculator and carbon filters unfortunately; condo = no ducting for the hood) and got a Panasonic Inverter microwave to put in the pantry. Turns out we use it probably half to a quarter as much as we did when it was above the stove. I think some times it just got used out of convenience,...
I don't know if any BHK is easily available anymore. I smoked my last of my OR BHK 52 box and honestly I don't know if I'd buy a current box, especially at the prices they command ($350/10 cigars was a lot at release, but every single cigar from my box smoked perfectly) and the quality I've heard about them anecdotally or from the general "rumor mill" regarding CCs.
I honestly want to try some Dunhill or Davidoff CCs because I've heard such good things about them. The...
In case anyone was wondering about the update on this, I called what I was fairly certain was all of the RL stores in the country that carry RLPL. I found a couple helpful SAs at a few stores, (Bal Harbour, Chicago, King of Prussia) and several unhelpful ones, but no dice on the jacket. Turns out last season's goods were sent back to HQ in North Carolina a couple weeks ago, so odds were slim that there were any left. The SAs at Chicago, Bal Harbour, and King of Prussia...
Is there going to be another tobacco linen Formosa for S/S 17? I missed out on it last season and my size is sold out now... I feel like the Drapers fabric is too close to my skin tone but the Caccioppoli would be perfect for London next summer.
