DeSense, that made me chuckle: I was working out exactly that arithmetic when I read Professor P's reply, and with the same mental image of a school maths exam!

I'm ashamed to admit I had to do that manually. Still working on the solution, somewhat 24+x = (42+x):2 +7 ...

PS: Got it: above [-24:  x = (42+x):2 -17 = x/2 +4 [x2, -x : x = 8)

Yeah but Noodles is only 25 or something.  Not that I'm judging you.

Ask Tits for help, he's a math professor if I remember correctly......

That's great.  SF quiz: "How many years before mimo's relationship becomes respectable?"

People are getting to work in the morning and finding even more "WTF?!" than usual....sorry for starting this!

That's the beauty of SF

Here's another one: if she was exactly half my age when we met, how much of a danger am I to children long have we been together?

Soon I will go to speak to her father.  He has more than one firearm and his own law firm.  Keep the pictures for posterity, chaps...

Let's just say that you should be lucky that the two of you didn't meet a year earlier........

6 years. Good luck, mimo

Uncle Nemo! I am an old man myself!
I am 32 and my soon to be wife is 24. Oh you bet I like that. Heee ha~~~
Yeah, and break a leg. You gonna need it. (36 v 18, you were waiting in the blocks for her to turn "legal", right? Or you're hiding something from us...)

(PS and to not spam OT more: I think 16 is legal in mine too, provided parents approve. Scary in a way. To conclude mine (wife, went for 2nds too) is 10 yrs younger and was my age divided by 2 plus 7 when we met. Phew.)

And already in the green on Pingson's respectability chart.  Well done.  Now, let's get back on track: show us your tie.

(DS, legal in my country would be 16, but as that's the age now of my eldest daughter, I'd rather not think about it!)

FIT PIC, NOODLES, NOW!!!

Another Tweed sports coat and corduroy trousers combo. This times with a alpaca wool vest.

See details (Click to show)

(Thank you!)

One too many bits of fun there, I think, Don.  I like it, but I think with the jacket done up it would tie together better (and look more flattering) - is the jacket a bit small to fasten comfortably?  It's lovely anyway.  I think with all that going on I'd go down a notch in colour on the trousers, but you're certainly cutting a dash.

One specific small change though: the tie and PS are both quite orange - as is that fierce overcheck.  They're all great, but too much together.  Changing even just the PS to something based on greens/browns or even navy, in a dull shade, would just soften the edge off this.  I think that tie and PS should always be of different colour families, or at least different ones dominating.

I never close the jacket, if I wear a vest or a pullover. And the jacket is not a bit to small to fasten comfortably - my waist has 2-3 kg to much at the moment.

Thanks for the thumbs, yesterday.

So a suit with an "interesting" tie is probably all I can do really, I understand that to be truly "classic menswear" everything should be toned down, but I guess I'm flirting with the other end of that scale, with my liking of bolder ties and the likes of the crazy Duchamp and Canali designs that are out there.

It's not about being toned up or down, it's about what is coherent. I own a Duchamp tie or two myself, and I'm (very) British BTW, so the 'it's all a different culture' excuse won't wash with me!
