I'm curious about that tie. Do you have a fit pic?

 

Here's a post from Henry's TUMBLR: http://henrycarter.tumblr.com/post/66540252380/one-of-the-new-arrivals-a-perfect-summer-tie-in#

 

I was on the fence because of the 8cm width, but decided I could live with that for a casual tie. But I'm finding the checks too large.

 

This seems to me slightly smaller scale though significantly more expensive:

I prefer the scale of the vanda but can't afford it. The HC tie is very tempting because of the great "introductory price" to HC neckwear

Larger checks probably work best with an all solid fit.

Not even worn yet, admittedly, so no fit pic. But agree on all you said. The checks are pretty large in scale (~8mm), so if you're looking for a regular more staple style, the Vanda would be the better choice, judging by pics alone. The price was/is unbeatable though. I see it with a solid (see Mr Claghorn) tan or brown cotton suit e.g..

Thanks both for the compliments. My wife once accused me of being frustratingly reasonable, especially as I am quick to admit when I'm wrong (usually stemming from a failure to see things from her perspective). We talked this out, so now whenever I realize she has a point, I let her vent for a few minutes before acknowledging it and trying to move the conversation/argument on. And whenever I'm "right" and have made all the points I felt I needed to make, I drop it until the next day and emotions have cooled down.

 

But I'm not all that young. I'll be 30 in a few years and have a good number of gray hairs.

Lol. "not all that young" and "30 in a few years" are some pretty substantial contradictions in themselves. One should start building a mathematical  counter argument around it that ends with QED. ;)

Enjoy your "age"!

One could always suggest that youth is not necessarily something measured in years :marchal:

post #4507 of 37396

I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing but my wife used to counsel troubled teenagers who ended up in prison at such young age. They were there for theft, assault, kidnapping, and rape. She is very good at diffusing a potential explosive situation and breaking down where things (I) went wrong. I usually am like, "Wow, I did that?!" We've yet to have an argument because she's really great at understanding me and expressing her feelings and thoughts. Despite the age difference and different backgrounds, we're really happy to be with each other. 

 

...how did we get here again from talking about Jungleroller's MTM suits?  

post #4508 of 37396

I was expecting Clags to be in his mid 30s before I met him. Very cool to hang out in person too. Not some internet geek in front of a monitor. :lol:

That sounds impressive. I always thought South Korea to be crime free? Theft "ok", kidnapping and rape, didn't expect that.

(got here? my bad :embar:)

We all just love talking about clothes and stuff but we're real people in different walks of life. Thus far I've met Clags and Stitchie in real life. Just sayin' yo~:D

Seoul isn't too far and I might make it in a not so distant future. As for Jakarta, EliodA is the only other member here, I'm aware of. Might have to ask him out for a beer soon. ;)

post #4512 of 37396

Seoul is nice but...it just gets really boring even with all the partying and stuff. It's a fun city but it just gets old after awhile. 

I like my suburban life with suicidal squirrels and deers jumping in front of my car in the road. 

post #4513 of 37396

Eh, Jakarta has quite some partying, too. And it can be "lovely" when you are a bachelor. Married and being 5 years "in" it is beyond boring. And I wish the x million motorbike-ists here were suicidal and regularly jumped underneath my car.

 

PS: Haven't had the proper opportunity yet: Congratulations and all the best for your nuptials! That was quite an endeavor to "witness" from close range. :cheers:

I'm leaving in the fall, so hurry. But you should definitely check it out. Regardless of what Rudals says, Seoul is a great place to visit for a while. My parents are hardcore Europhiles, but they sacrificed their annual Europe trip to come visit me in Seoul last summer. My mom is very open minded, but my father was not expecting to like it at all. They both absolutely loved it.

:rotflmao:

I laughed out loud at first but then I realized that involves killing people. 

Running over squirrels feels like driving over a soft pillow. It is...a weird feeling.
