I picked out a Kitchenaid that had a low dB rating and had a third rack and triple articulating heads when we did a renovation last May. It's the best dishwasher at the price point I was looking at (~$1000-1200) and we've been more than happy with it. I think [url=http://www.kitchenaid.com/shop/major-appliances-1/dishwashers-2/dishwashers-3/-[KDTM404EBS]-5571596/KDTM404EBS/]this[/url] is the current year's model that's similar to what we have. Plus my parents and my...
I have All-Clad Copper Core (7 piece set I think, frying pan, high wall pan with lid, stock pot with lid, and small saucepot with lid) at my house at school (and an electric stove ) and Le Creuset at home (along with my Viking range). At first I was gung ho about the All Clad being better or whatever but frankly the enameled cast iron is so much easier to cook on, and much, much easier to clean. I probably cooked twice as often at home than I do at school, but probably...
I especially don't like doing it wearing raw (or even after a few washes) denim. Was paranoid wearing my LBM cashmere DB coat with my JBJs earlier this season, but luckily no indigo transfer.
Sent the San Felice, the 2010 Torre Oria and the Chateau Teulon home and put the rest of my FP wine in my wine locker. GF wasn't over the moon about the Chianti but did really enjoy the Teulon, which is good all around considering it's (marginally) less expensive. Did get a half case of that Italian Rose, but I think only 1-2 bottles are left after the holiday season I got a Patricia Green release (2014 "Ludicrous" is the name) for the Willamette wine auction for my...
Yeah I've got a handful myself as well, and usually the only alterations I have to get done are the hem and getting the buttons put on the sleeves, but I've had a few where I needed a sleeve shortened, or both sleeves shortened depending on how the arm hole and my shoulder were cooperating. Just seemed like natural variance with a handmade product, and the sizing seemed generally consistent (as in, my 50R or 50L jackets or suits fit like a US40 would) across multiple...
I too really like EOTechs. I have a basic 512 on my first AR build, my brother has the HHS II also and really likes it, and he got me the 300 BLK XPS2 for the build that I currently have waiting in NFA limbo. By NFA Tracker's predictions, I should hear back by the end of this month with a tax stamp to proceed
Yeah my girlfriend and I have been talking about doing a true "spring cleaning" and just getting rid of anything in our closets that we either don't wear or are keeping for no reason. She did her purge today and had a ton of stuff that she is getting rid of, and says she feels a ton better. I have a lot of stuff that I don't need or even wear, and a lot of it still has tags on it. Contemplating just sending it all to LuxeSwap at the end of the semester when I'm back home...
Had a late night dinner at the bar of a steakhouse in town. Had a pour each of M10, Elliott's, and Booker's Rye. Booker's Rye is the real deal, and M10 was excellent, as usual. Elliott's was spicy and okay, but I felt was the weakest link of the three.
One of my favorite purchases of 2016 actually came in 2017. Been looking for a pair of tobacco suede shoes (boots ideally) for a while, but nothing really popped up. Was considering doing an MTO with Edward Green either through Leffot or direct since I'll be in London in the summer for either a Galway or their Chelsea boot. Ended up seeing a pair of Lobb Jodhpurs on sale at Mr Porter and bought them. They're exactly what I wanted, a casual boot to wear often, and they'll...
I think the biggest thing was that we weren't sure whether it was supposed to taste that way (or whether it was turned/bad/etc.). So we were approaching it with a bit of apprehension. Maybe the experience with the second bottle will be improved since we know what to expect (at least if it was stored similarly to the other). Thanks Manton!
