Oh shoot, sorry man. I just thought you were calling me a lunatic out of no where when I am just having the worst day of my life and when I barely know you.

My apologies as well. :cheers:

Re performance reviews, in my experience the type noodles received is generally reserved for under performers or average performers when the organization is cutting costs. If neither of these things are true then there must be some other variable like personality conflict or politics of some kind (of which neither may even involve our poor noodles).

Either way noodles needs to get with the program and figure our what is going on.

C'mon dude. Noodles is me with absolutely zero filter. I just say everything that's on my mind. You really think Noodles and I are alike in real life? I really hope you don't think that.

 

But Noodles is one crazy dude.

You are a lunatic out of nowhere.  But you're our lunatic out of nowhere.

Intending no disrespect, all I can say is that I'm deeply jealous.  If that was the worst day of your life you've been quite extraordinarily lucky thus far.

 

Consider this.

I'll do it, but I'm copping out with my gray Howard Yount suit. It has brown windowpanes and patch pockets.

 

The only other gray one I have is:

Trust the force, Clags...wear the simple light grey (though in an ideal world, it has non-grey buttons).  But it won't be as bad as you think.

I actually tried three combinations this morning. Including one close to what you recommended. Then I said "fuck it" and put on jeans and a polo shirt.

I think this has to include a picture. I refuse to take clags at his word on such a matter.

^^ What he said.

Agree. No pics=never happened. Would be unfortunate if he were to be forever cursed with shoulder divots for breaking promise to styleforum.

Fortunately, I snapped a monotone look on my iPhone. Enough for y'all to see that I tried something.



(I was leaning over. The blade ended at the belt line).

I also tried with mid-blue trousers, light blue shirt, and a blue/burgundy striped tie. And then something awful with camel colored trousers.

If I had said I had worn it out of the house but refused to post pics, then you should doubt my word. But if I were going to lie about it, I wouldn't have admitted to welching.

 

But like I said, I'll wear a gray orphan. Just not that one. Easier one.

 

If I weren't honest in what I write, I couldn't have the man in my avatar staring at me every time I post.

This would make an interesting Friday Challenge (though some will be horrified by the very idea of it, I’m sure).

Claghorn, you really should get a dark grey suit at some point. I know grey isn't your favorite but considering how many blue jackets you have, one dark grey suit seems fair enough (especially since you have that moratorium on buying additional blue jackets).

It got lifted. She knows what makes me happy.

 

I was going to get this:

(I really like the fabric)

 

But will probably get this:

As 38L fits me like a dream (except needing about an inch taken off at the sleeves, which is fine as there is a fair amount of room between the buttons and the sleeve end)
