Tweed is not even close to a year round fabric, and it is not appropriate as a suit in most settings a suit is demanded. Tweed suits are really only good for those who have at least 10 suits or so already, they're the kind of thing you bring out on rare occasions. For that matter, for that budget you're probably best served by 3 or 4 different nicer quality off the rack suits. Navy and blue, in varying weights. A lighter worsted or even fresco for warm weather, heavier...
If made to measure, you're not gonna find the exact one, but you're looking for a traditional plain knit shetland sweater in some shade of light blue. You can find 'em from a zillion makers at different price points and in different cuts, but here's the real deal. For more options, you should be able to just google shetland sweater.
Sports require tremendous skill, strategy, and coordination, both on an individual and group level, and there's no predetermined outcome. Those things all make them engaging and entertaining. Civic pride plays into it too. While I don't think it's healthy to spend all day in front of ESPN, you can do a lot worse for entertainment.
Short notice, lots of people with snow days, and not a whole lot of folks have or wear odd waistcoats.
Rachel Maddow is interviewing David Wondrich right now, and I'm drinking a Hot Buttered Rum.
Yeah, you can buy 10 year old aged Rioja for less than $20 at just about any grocery store. You can find some spectacular deals, and they're such versatile wines to boot.
Usually holes on belts are an inch apart. Less, in some cases. You're supposed to use the middle hole, and belts are normally measured to the middle hole. You should be a size 32.
It's not just a matter of a higher armhole, it's about the way the armhole is pitched in relation to your body. The amount of room available in the back- I've run into a several cheap slim jackets that just don't give anywhere enough room in the back for me- I put it on, and I literally cannot move my arms forward- one wonders what the designers were thinking. That's the issue with high armholes- done right, you have a lot more mobility. If the shoulders and back of the...
It's not about public/private, it's about whether the debt was created with a prior agreement as to the form of payment or not. Private businesses as well as government agencies can refuse pennies, or large bills, or payment in cash altogether, if it's specified before you receive the good or service you're paying them for. A bus or tollbooth doesn't have to take pennies, because they have not agreed to let you access the service yet. If you don't want to pay the way they...
You have no fucking clue what you're talking about.I've never done it because I'm not an ass, at least in this area, but people do pay shiat in pennies all the time. It results in a bad day for the clerk and absolutely no change to the thing the person paying is frustrated about, so it's a fairly useless thing to do. But federal law quite explicitly requires them to take the money. If a debt is created with no previously negotiated terms on form of payment, as is typical...
