If only you could refer to the suit orphans thread for ideas. Anyone who is into reducing waste and saving the planet should be for saving suit orphans.

DC has three restaurants on this list, including #1 and two spots in the top four. It's not NY or SF yet, but it's catching up very, very quickly.

I actually waited three hours outside roses luxury on Valentine's Day in the blistering cold only to be disappointed by the food. Maybe I'm just jaded. Or my taste buds were frozen. The place was really well decorated though.

Man up.

 

Navy trousers, a shirt with a pattern (small blue check?), textured tie in a warm colour e.g. rust grenadine, mustard knit, whatever, and some kind of foppish i-Gent touch or two - a novelty PS, a buttonhole flower, maybe both.  Dark tan or brown shoes.  Go on, try it.

Not with this jacket unfortunately. It is about the suitiest solid jacket possible.

I've no compunction breaking rules and I'm a good dresser by most standards. But this is too much.

I liked his gray orphan. It worked well. This is way more orphan-y that that though.

Boo.  You should try it.  Let us suggest things, post pics, see if anyone can make you work it.  But I'm first.  And I know you've got all that stuff.

You went to the wrong places, my man. DC area has some good food.

No doubt, Murl. But I'm talking about suburban Maryland.

Suburban Maryland around Rockville has good Chinese food. The rest is primarily chain restaurants.

Just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

Come on, it's a great game!  "Pimp Claghorn's Orphan".  When something sounds as wrong as that, it has to be right.

I understand and sympathize with both Clags and mimo in this situation. I'm torn...
post #20355 of 37395
I thought the point of the wager is that it's going to look terrible? Claghorn was sure that Noodles would be happy with his mid-year review. I say go ahead and do it, just make sure that there's no photographic evidence of the outfit.
