Thanks, M3. Closest I get to non-OTR shirts are the few times I've order some custom shirts from Brooks Brothers.

M3 looks sick! I was seriously thinking about trading my 335 for a 328, though. Got tired of having all that power I never used. But it's harder in LA, because cops are somehow drawn to me. Maybe you can actually drive it how it was meant to be where you live.

Back to clothes... Are you happy with your OTR shirts? I suppose some people are built for OTR shirts and others aren't. Your clothes fit you so perfectly every time, I am envious that you can get them RTW.

Thanks! I went with the only shell shoes in my rotation cause I thought they worked best - my tassels would have done the trick too I suppose, but I wore those the last time and wanted to play around a bit. I need moar shell. In my closet (s). wink.gif

Yeah, seems like the only thing you'd get that you don't get now (given the limitations you face) is worse mileage. Highway Patrol in the south seem to be a little more lenient as a rule, judging by the number of times I have passed speedtraps doing 85 to 90 mph in a 70 without repercussion.

I am perfectly satisfied with OTR shirts. They fit me as well as I expect an OTR shirt to fit, and when they don't a trip to the tailor generally gets them there.

Should I take Korean classes and bit a little more poor, or take the job that puts me back in a suit again?

Nice.

Take the job you like better.

Though I don't know what "bit a little poor" means. Spit it out, maybe.

He probably meant to write "be a little poor"...

Of course, people who know me would be fine with it, but being a social person and often exploring new things and companies, I feel a little pressured into conforming with society at least in some ways. Often that means sacrificing some of my sartorial desires.

Thank you, I dress like this quite often and I do move around among very different groups of people. I know certain elements of this steeze got picked up by fashion forward people a couple of years ago, but I think those trends has faded (at least here in Sweden). I feel comfortable wearing this and it's not exactly peacockery, so I guess people recognize that.
