One of my favorite restaurants. I guess that makes me a small-timer.

The fish appetizer and the fish entrée are pretty good there. I recommend the fish, and then the fish dessert.

BTW, does anyone know how the term entrée came to mean the main course in colloquial American English? Is it a Huguenot thing, like most things?

Thanks in advance.

Washing is tough on the finish though. They get all banged up.

Leave your shirt on, and your hose if you're wearing garters. Mount from the rear and spank with vigor. Don trousers, shoes, and depart.

Hmmmm, I am a fish lover and Le Bernardin is a seafood restaurant. You may be on to something here.
Like you, however, I have long been befuddled with why entree means a main course in American English. Since I was born a Catholic (i.e. "mackerel snapper"), blaming the Huguenots has always seemed a good idea.

Fat chicks.

Ok, possibly not the best thread for a first post, but here goes:

-- All my boxers and socks without exception come from Marks & Spencers.
-- I also own a vintage tweed jacket from M & S, and yes, occasionally I wear it.
-- I own four pairs of Loake shoes.

Do these confessions consign me to forum opprobrium...?

I agree with most of what has been posted: 1. Grimslade is the only one (outside of my stalker) who has seen me in my usual slob attire. 2. Toggle back cufflinks are easier to install/uninstall 3. I wear jeans, boots & sweaters to work most days & am even slobbier on weekends (save Sunday) 4. I like mono-colored silk squares 5. I never get lasted trees but opt for C21 trees (Woodlore) 6. I drink McClelland's 10 year Islay 7. I wear LRL flannel trousers & suits 8. My fav white shirt is made by Sean John 9. I wear braided belts regularly

Just what sort of rabbit do you take me for? Then I might damage my shirts!

I can't really think of anything "inferior". Everything in the universe is as it should be.







Also, I wear my dad's old polyester ties sometimes.

Dansko Professionals.

They look terrible IMO but I find myself wearing them a couple days a week and I even have more than one pair. On my feet all day and never ache at the end with Dansko's.

I have a Tag Heuer watch
post #285 of 383
Nothing really wrong with that. Sure, a TAGs inferior to a Vacheron Constantine, but most things are inferior to something. A TAG is still a Swiss watch, and therefore superior IMO to a Seiko or a no-name quartz...

I'm not a huge fan of TAGs, but I don't hate them. I think they had a bit of a Porche image problem - like "only cocks wear them" - for a while, but I think the jealousies of the world have moved on. Some of the new model TAGs are actually quite interesting IMO.
