Fudge! Putting on new tires took 3 effing hours. WTH! But it really handles wells and luv it.

3 hrs?! Get thee to a speed jack, Doodles. I can do mine in under an hr, including torque setting, and that's w/o an air wrench. Half that time is spent lugging (doh) the wheels up and down from the basement ( switching to snows). Those suckahs are heavy.

Lots of the new wool striped ties from NMWA would work. And how about this?

I'll stand by the suggestion ...

I bought a beater jacket as a bar jacket a while ago and while it has a few moth holes, it's pretty nice.

Wore it as part of my halloween costume last night and it got douzed in beer at a house party. The area by one of the vents is rock hard. Would a dry cleaning salvage it? Should I try wetting the affected spot?

This.

You are crazy. The PoW is a million times better than the sharkskin.

Mine is off the market. Just get a damn suit, Noodles!

I still believe in buying staples before indulging in cool but more eccentric stuff. Noodles lacks both a staple grey solid and a navy solid.

I support buying both.

Every man should own a grey flannel suit...even if it doesn't turn him into Gregory Peck.

Stitchy covered this. Your best suits should not be non-staples. He's right.

I hope you were joking. Skin peels (and other exfoliative treatments) do not make dark skin lighter. In fact, the darker the skin, the more a peel is likely to trigger a post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation reaction.

 

Just learn to love your dark complexion. Believe me when I tell you that being a "pink" is not a lot of fun. Skin cancer, rosacea, age spots, seborrhoeic keratoses...

I clicked through to that link. Couldn't believe how many horrible suits there were on that site. All the jackets way, way too short. Thom Browne has much to answer for.

Also attention deficiency is a spectrum, so saying you had adhd unless you really have it is a bit inaccurate and problematic even if you have neuroticism or show traits of it. Like if you're a little bit unhappy, you wouldn't call yourself chronically or depressed and compare yourself to someone who thinks about killing themselves every day. It's a pretty serious and overlooked problem and gets made fun of or joked about a lot, and it's not really cool imo. This goes for words like "psycho" when you don't really mean psychotic (or psychopathic). Being psychotic (having a psychotic episode) means having delusions, hallucinations, loses grip with reality, etc. It's pretty intense and I think not what you mean when you used the word. It does not mean "psychotic ax murderer" or "breathing down my neck and gets upset easily" or "control freak" "easily hysterical" or any of the ways commonly used. It's a real issue that can ruin careers and lives.

 

Don't mean to rant but there are 3 people right now in my flat who are on medication, and mental illness is a pretty touchy and important subject that shouldn't be made light of.

 

 

Agreed. My pet peeve is the common and tiresome conflation of schizophrenia with multiple personality disorder. (The latter "disorder" arguably doesn't even exist.)

Agreed, tie looks fantastic with that suit. But its pattern would clash egregiously with the narrow pinstripes of the suit you were recommending pairing it with.

My suit is a pinstripe. It's a litltle fainter in that photo than the one that was the subject of the original request. I bumped the contrast as much as I could without making everything else crazy. It's clearer in the large photo. Admittedly hard to know for sure. (It is a great tie though!)
post #14595 of 37482

I never said it wasn't a great tie.

 

It's a great tie.
