The collar was my disappointment on it as well. Something about it really throws off the whole jacket.Otherwise, if I could exchange for a M, I think I'd be happy with it for the $125 I paid.
Ordered the Utility Jacket (http://www.clubmonaco.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=13336577&cp=12266410.12280856.12770908&ab=viewall) in a L with the intention of replacing my J Crew Fireman's jacket which fits like a tent. Sure enough, the CM jacket fits big too. Was going to order a M along with the L to be sure of sizing but figured everything else I have from CM I wear an L, that should go for outwear too. M is sold out now, not a big loss, in person the coat isn't all...
Bumping this thread. I'll be in Manhattan for a couple days later this month. Schedule is fairly tight. Are there any stores in Brooklyn that demand a trip across the bridge?
Was 10lb away from my goal weight back in January and went the opposite way, regaining 25lb. 210 now. Off to the gym to begin the long road back.
Margin Call. All in all nothing special, a couple nice monologues, particularly Stanley Tucci's about the bridge.
I've been putting in a 60 hour work week regularly since university; it's not that bad if you have a short commute and enjoy the people you work with. If I end up having kids, I'll want to scale it back. I don't think I could hack it in a billable hours environment; I don't know if they live at work, have incredible powers of concentration or are screwing their clients, but the annual billable hours I've heard thrown around in conversation from some of the lawyers I know...
^ Yes, that's the one.
There was a thread awhile back about advice you would give to your younger self. I can't seem to find it but if you can dig it up I recall there was some good insight in there. Career: I would have job shadowed anyone who would have let me. I definitely was very naive about what working life would be like. Personal: Would have never started drinking. I've never had an alcohol problem but when I lay down the pros vs cons of drinking, it's starkly obvious I would have been...
Was speaking with a couple of my young cousins this weekend about what their plans are as they begin University this week; I offered them what little wisdom I could based on the choices I've made. My wife is a lawyer, and though she does enjoy it she says that becoming a chartered accountant would have been a better choice; less schooling, better hours, mobility. I work in corporate finance; I don't like the work but I enjoy the people I work with and the compensation is...
I have tried Charles Tyrwhitt Tailored Fit shirts and for the price I'm happy with the quality but they are too baggy in the waist. I am thinking of having a tailor slim the shirts down. I am wondering for future orders (made with the intent of having the shirt slimmed down by a tailor) should I order the slim fit or the tailored fit? I asked because the tailored fit has back darts where I understand the slim fit does not. Would the lack of darts be more conducive to...
