Yeah- twill. Names like that are generally marketing for one brand's specific choice of fabric. I suspect that they're trying to imply that it's a fairly wrinkle resistant twill by using 'commuter'. Go to a good store and ask to try on a few twill shirts. If you give a price range, people here can make some pretty good suggestions.
Plymouth makes a nice martini, as does Hendricks.IMO, in terms of gin, it's good to keep a variety around. Some are great all rounders, some are specialists with very distinct and unique flavors. Hendricks falls into the latter camp, but that doesn't make it lesser than something like a Bombay that's pretty firmly in the former camp. It just makes it different. If you're only going to have one gin around, I probably wouldn't go for a Hendricks type deal, I'd go for a...
Such as pink linen. I had a meeting (granted, not a high stakes anything, just kind of a get to know you) with one of the better known lawyers in the city I was in at the time. He showed up in madras shorts, a pink linen shirt, and flip flops. Having your name on the building helps. His firm wasn't particularly conservative, but still.
I'm not sure. It was one of those really small ones they sell for snacking. A friend of mind left it here, oranges aren't something I really buy. Edit: Clementines maybe?
I think I've finally found a blood and orange recipe I really like. Warning, as I've made it it's a tad oversized. Size down as appropriate. Juice of half a small (size of a large lemonish) orange, fresh squeezed. Comes to a little less than an ounce of juice. 1 oz Maraschino 1 oz Sweet Vermouth 1.5 oz smoky blended scotch Brandied cherry (homemade ) Normally I'm lazy with orange juice in cocktails, but I think the fresh squeezed did make a difference, and using...
It's a don't because with brass buttons, it becomes a blazer, a distinct and iconic garment with its own interesting history. Simply, the reason is that blazers have never been worn as suits, and are an iconic look in themselves.If you want a navy suit, wear a navy suit. Just skip the gold buttons.
Boat shoes, camp mocs, sneakers. Venetian loafers aren't a bad choice either, but I don't like shiny leather with shorts. Suede or more casual oiled leathers, or canvas.
Screw that. I did Macbeth in 9th grade, and loved it. Arcane language or not, that is a stupidly awesome play. The entire class had a great time.
$80 is pretty dang expensive for a shirt, though the previous poster did mention that as his range.CT shirts are just fine in terms of construction and fabric, and their fit (extra slim, anyway) is spectacular for me. Fit is personal, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with CT shirts. If you like the fit, go for it. It's hard to find a better value. You can get better, but you have to spend at least twice as much to do so.Be warned though, they do have stiff collars. If...
It's called humility and self awareness. You should try it.
