I'd have to agree, -- I suspect the definition of "speaker" is why that figure is lower. Here in Yurrup, probably 5 of 10 people I've run into speak enough English to answer basic questions. (And EVERYONE in the "little" countries in Northern Europe is semi-fluent.) Even in nooks and crannies like Corsica you'll find plenty of people who know some English.English is the "common" language in most of the world (French is for much of Africa and the Middle East). Best thing to...
That I couldn't say.
I am roughly same size with 39 chest. Medium fits me best, though previous season workshirts have actually been a little tight in the chest. Can't imagine a S would fit well unless you have narrow shoulders. But yes, measurements are variable, so best to know your chest/shoulder measurements and use that as a baseline.
There is also the US Embassy -- again, not saying that a few emails or phone calls would have an effect, but hundreds might.
^^And that was when we thought there were "only" 160 people waiting. I wouldn't expect a single report to have any effect, but if the police were flooded with them... I'm not totally at the point of saying this is our last resort. I sincerely don't want Drew or anyone else to get involved in the criminal justice system, especially not in South Korea, from what I've learned about it. And I don't want to use this as a threat. What I want, and I think what others want, is...
Yeah, I speculated 250, because on the (admittedly rudimentary) EG web site I lost track around 150 or so, and that was pretty much just North America, a few countries in Europe, and Japan. But there are a lot more, and if Tools for Working Wood (where I bought all the supplies to renovate 2 apartments in New York a decade ago is selling EG, then you can buy it just about anywhere...
I'd say Nordstrom caters to a less fashion-conscious, more conservative customer, but i wouldn't say they sell clothes of lesser quality than Bloomingdales. They carry Ervell, AMI, Yohji, Junya and a few other interesting, directional brands. They might tend toward buying items with broader appeal, though.
As has been pointed out, Bloomingdale's has carried EG in their SoHo store since 2011, I believe. Not sure how well it's doing, though. Nordie's isn't terrible, they have great customer service -- I used to buy all my "work" clothes there years ago when I lived in California. Their house brand suits and separates are good quality for money, tbh, and they have great sales on stuff like ties and dress shirts.Over the years they've tried to attract a hipper crowd, so having...
Re shorts/socks: I feel like unless you're going for some kind of conceptual look, shorts with anything other than ankle socks just break up your body in an unflattering way, especially if (like most of us) you have pale hairy legs. In any event, shorts are a tricky piece to pull off in a fashion context. Casual hot day -- no problem. But in other situations -- generally no.
Well, if mine ever arrives, you bet I"m gonna tell people that it's nicer than SLP. I'll also tell them it's made from genuine whale's vagina in the Bottega Veneta factory by Tomas Meier's personal tailor. That would explain the wait, at least.
