Just got a NMWA gift cert for my birthday. Thanks for offering that as an option, makes it easy for me to let people in my life who have limited access to stuff feel good about getting me a gift they know I'll like.
If you picked up the flight bomber in large and are having second thought, let me know
So after 4 months of wear my Type 3 denim has started to develop rips in the seat. Too many squats? Kinda disappointed for $300 denim to rip so quick. I love them still. Probably get it patched up, Hedi charges $500 for his. Assuming this is a side effect of the washing process.
The jacket is a safe choice, so it's the pants I'm debating. Nothing like them, which means it's an opportunity, but the sizing has me uncertain. I'm a 31 waist and the idea of a 32 with a 13 inch thigh seems crazy. Waist sizing of the 32 seems big for me, typically a 29 or 30 in denim, which I realize stretches, often to 32".

At the time, Goldman was offering $100k + 100% of salary as bonus potential, which pushed them ahead of what Amazon, Google, Apple, etc were offering. Sounds like that's changed since then - if nothing else, the software companies are offering more at this point,...
You bought the denim, right? Also, outerwear should fit you.
Starting salary (not including bonus, benefits, stock) for a kid out of college at the large software companies (MSFT, Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc) is $100k. Which is still less than starting salary at a place like Goldman.
