We'll see. I don't anticipate a new job adding to my ability to post, but you never know where I might pop up.
Thanks for the heads up! Definitely looks like it's worth checking out. I found a couple odd jackets I like. There's one in particular that would be a perfect addition. Perhaps I shall bid...

you never know.

i have had great luck with LS as well. spoo posts his items in his LS thread before auction, if you see something you like, you can PM him and try and snag it before it goes to auction if he can work an agreeable price between you and the consignor.

I shall take the Spoo advice under advisement. Thanks, guys!

I'll check them out, thanks. Looks like similar stuff to that Wizard of Aahs guy, and I actually really like the suit I bought from him. It fit perfectly. Sent him an email, as well, to see if he has anything.

Oh, and did you, of all people, just call me skinny? You're like a foot taller than me and about nine ounces heavier. You knocking me for being skinny is like a telephone pole picking on a fence post.

skinny guys fighting about who is skinnier.

Office politics.

My boss is getting an advisors contract (read, is removed) because he is to big a threat to his boss. The guy can't fire him as he does his job very well, so he will be placed outside of the firing zone..

Fuck this, not only is my boss my friend, he's also the best shot we have for the coming years, as the thing we do isn't that easy.. And now he's 90% surely gone, because some incompetent prick doesn't have the balls to lead competent people, but instead wants to lead sheep out of fear.

Seriously contemplating creating a shitstorm for this fuck by airing some dirty laundry, but I'm not sure what the collateral damage will be..

I'll use the weekend to cool off as I'm definitely out of balance atm, but I really feel like making the ruination of this mans career a hobby..

Is that the fence post they have to tie you down to when the wind is up? The first time I met you I thought I had an eyelash in my eye and then realized it was just you.

Was that the time my son started crying because we'd just read Jack and the Beanstalk and he was afraid there was a giant hiding on your head?

He was crying because you turned sideways and he thought you disappeared.

Well, regardless of the cause of the crying, I've always meant to thank you for pretending to be the mast so we could play pirate ship and cheer him up.

On the other hand, I know if I just buy something cheap to hold me over until our finances are more stable, I'm going to end up hating whatever I buy.

I'd think those j.crew suits would fit M better until he earns enough coin to order a couple of liveranos.

btw- conne's poast made me remember this oldtimer classic:
