Y'up, I was enjoying my single days immensely at 25 and not married until 33 with the first rugrat coming along the following year.

You guys are doing it wrong. My kids will be off to college or somewhere other than my house by the time I'm 40!

Whatevs. There are upsides to each approach.
post #19294 of 37396
True.

Ten and eleven years for me.

Having started much later than @Murlsquirl I'm of the opinion that there is much wisdom in what he says. I'm going to be about 60 when my youngest goes off to college. Meanwhile, my brother (only 3 years older than me) is watching his next to last leave for school this fall. Little kids are tiring!

 

But @Rudals don't go having babies just to keep Mrs. Noodles busy. You've got a sound strategy for the next couple of years.

Absolutely. I would love to donate my retrenched Canali ties to those famine victims in Davos and Vail. I dub such largesse "paying it forward".

I will see your Canalis and raise you with Armani Collezioni and Hugo Boss.

My leather belt has cracks due to overuse. Can I apply shoe polish on the leather to restore it?

Saphir Renovateur or Lexol Conditioner.

I think I am royally screwed. I think there's a slight chance there may be a baby. It's been 3 plus weeks already. :crazy:

Tests so far say negative.

 

Anyone heard of ETON from SWEDEN brand? How are their shirts?

Nice long sleeves, nice fabrics.  Collar stays are fused into the structure, but are very good.  Plastic buttons.  Nice slim styles.  FWIW, it is a good $200 shirt.  Great fabrics.

Not me. Had a baby last year and who knows what the future holds, with G-ds help.

No, you will discover how easy it is for you to say no to that tie.

I certainly wouldn't want to start having kids any later than I did. That said, kids keep you young. Also, I certainly wasn't ready to be a husband or father much before 30 years old.

Elio, what do you mean?

Neither will fix actual cracks, in my experience (I'm taking it on faith that Noodles' description is accurate).  Nothing can.  Leather dye can help a bit to hide them in certain contexts, but I can't imagine it would work very well on a belt, which is intended to be flexing most of the time.

 

On the other hand, conditioner can be a big help in preventing cracks in the first place.

Cheers,

Guys, to cut a long store really short: does Luxire do CMT?

Yes
post #19305 of 37396
Yes they do. You can contact them with details to determine costs.
