Lolz.

I forgot how many times they said shit in that movie. Wife was not pleased with the 8 year old hearing that. peepwall[1].gif

Ferris Bueller's Day Off was a big hit here, but my wife was scandalized by the cursing. Didn't bother me.

Well, I did not mind the cursing either, but I though my son was a bit young for it.

My worst experience of this was watching Burn After Reading with my parents. I had already seen it and thought it was hilarious, but then with my mother sitting next to me, it gradually dawned on me that every other word was 'fuck' and that she was not getting past that fact. It was so uncomfortable that eventually I just had to stop the DVD.

Is it possible for suit jacket sleeves to shrink after dry cleaning? I had a more cuff showing than i recall the last time i wore this shirt with the suit.

Yep. Dry clean as little as possible. Air it out, brush, and have it pressed if needed.

Not necessarily. When they fibers get pressed they get shmushed together. Wear it a few times and it will probably loosen up again.

I hope so! It feels like they're a half inch shorter!

What iPhone app with voice command do you guys use to take pictures?  Something tells me my wife will be reluctant to cooperate...

Guys, I tend to think for an overcoat, you might as well get double breasted since the point is warmth and presumably, especially with wind a factor, it'd be better to get double breasted, do any of you have arguments for single breasted? What do you guys think about a dark brown double breasted overcoat? I wonder if that'd be a bit jarring as brown is more of a casual/country color.

brown is good.

 

i have a chocolate brown cashmere overcoat and it is probably my most used. goes with everything...except if you are wearing more brown.

I've got a 50% cashmere mid-gray coat and that cost quite a bit. I never asked but I imagine a full cashmere one is quite expensive. 

 

I've look through a bunch of coating fabrics and coats and chocolate brown (which is what I'm hoping to get) seems not super popular for some reason. Weird, seems like the perfect color to me.

There's a good selection of top coats on sale on YOOX. 

 

I got a 100% Wool Luigi Bianchi Mantova single breasted coat for $250. 

 

Plenty of double breasted options in brown (and cashmere) at higher price points (500s or so) but it was a bit of an emergency purchase and I've gotta stop being selfish and buy some x-mas gifts for others.

Also this is what I "wanted" but didn't "need"

 

Might fit the bill for you
