such a bummer with the GLaDOS voice, their statement regarding it was like: "yeeaah you know we kinda wanted to make people interested and excited because everyone likes GLaDOS and she'd go perfectly with this, but we've decided to only do that for the trailer and not for the actual film (because f**k you)"

Robots with people piloting them inside like that reminds me of Gundam Wing.

I think it's more like "because we don't want to pay for licensing fees".

Well, at least you're well compensated for it.

This surprised me too. Plus, I would think that MS would be more open to working from home or other alternative work arrangements.

I'm surprised you feel this way. I find that if you have good suits they are very comfortable and don't really bother you that much. If you have shirts that fit well you barely even realize that you're wearing a tie most of the time.

If you're gonna do consulting, you better know if you like traveling. Oh, and working long hours.

I understand the sentiment, but this could actually go down a very valuable path. The reality is that for many people on this forum fashion and careers are both important aspect of their lives. If that's the case then it's probably a good idea to find out how to most effectively merge the two, especially since if you spend so much money on SW&D clothes you'll want to wear them more than two days a week. If members can leverage the experiences of others in order to find a way to incorporate more of their wardrobe into their workwear, that's probably a good thing.

You beat me to it. I was going to ask the same thing. More specifically, I'd be curious as to the quality of the fabric. I've tried ModernTailor twice, and have thought the fabric quality was absolute shit both times.

Or, do your Orangutan arms not get wrinkles set into the sleeves? Are you actually working or do you show up at your office, in your attire and just stand for 'x' hours with your arms still next to your side?

You guys tripping about "dressing up" are plain silly. As if a tie and shirt is considered dressing up.

"Oh no, I have to put on some pants today and tuck in my shirt!?" JFC

 

I only have a couple mid-range geller shirts (nothing really high end) but they don't really get wrinkled except for the inside of the elbows (I don't tuck in my shirts).  My uniqlo oxfords tend to look like they've been balled up in the bottom of the laundry bin before I even make it to work.

Light poplin fabrics wrinkle while heavy oxford doesn't, it's not really about quality level. BTW Uniqlo sells non-iron shirts if you really hate wrinkles. I've had bespoke and mtm shirts, designer shirts, internet mtm shirts. Nowadays I just get Uniqlo and throw away when they're worn out, I'm really not into non disposable shirts and tees anymore.

Dress codes make me stop caring and wear comfy things that I don't mind wearing out.

That way to access the contents is worse in every way than a zipper. Wouldn't recommend if you intend to open/close more than once in the morning and afternoon. Especially if you have to tread the leather straps through every time, at least it doesn't have buckles.

I already have a similar one so kinda used to it, and there are no other black simple blackpacks that are nearly as good-looking as that one for less than 200$ so blush.gif
