2nd or 3rd tie from the left.

I guess you have not GNAT Part I, II, III, IV, and V. What your eyes are seeing is extra fabric hanging due to lack of buttocks. :violin:

Guys, thank you very much for the discussion so far.

I know the general grey herringbone discussion has been had up a number of times in different threads so I appreciate the willingness to go over it some more here along with feedback on my specific fit.

In the end, this one will probably go back for reasons brought up. That said, I'll keep it for a few more days to take more pics in different trouser configurations for the sake of education. And I'd like to explore a couple more of the fit and color issues brought up, but that may take a day or two as right now I need to head to work smile.gif

Have a good week, everyone!

May want to have a doctor look at that. I have so many questions that I don't want to ask, yet ...

I am not sure if you are asking Clag or generally, but for me it's Puerto Rican whole bean coffee, ground medium-fine, brewed in a Moka Pot with a pinch of salt.  Served as a Cortadito.

Anybody here a fan of Nespresso coffee machines? I have the Lattissmo model but I keep finding myself at Starbucks for frapps. :puzzled:

Where do you get your PR coffee from? I loved the local beans when I visited San Juan last summer and forgot to bring some back with me so I've been missing it ever since.

My wife is from there so we bring a lot back on our yearly visit and then ask family to bring some up when they visit us.  We still have to ration it.  When we run out, I'm always tempted to order from here but never have:  http://www.puertoricocoffeeshop.com/BeanCoffee.html  I've never found any locally here in the Midwest, though Starbuck's says they sell PR coffee in some locations.

 

Aroma del Cielo, Gustos, and San Pedro are our favorites, FWIW.

On an unrelated note, I am debating between three ties, mainly to wear with a Navy or Mid-Grey suit in the summer.  Would a Shantung work with a wool suit?

Second one is great (personal experience), first might be interesting, not a huge fan of #3

I tried combining a green tie with the fresco (mid grey) and I just went back to navy. Just looks so darn good. Shantung is fine with wool suits. Are you going for ConradWu?

Forget all of the exercise advice and stop drinking those things.

Those pics are CW pics, you can tell by the style. Greg poses his ties differently. Hober has crappy pics, so you can tell his. Vanda shows theirs differently also.

 

(SF problems - you can tell the tie vendor by the tie modeling)

This. Do you know how many calories those bad boys contain? It's pretty much like eating an extra meal.
