There might be quite a few journalists on this board too but we are certainly all painted with the same brush. No-one ever stops to think of a world without reporters telling people what is happening. Now that would be really spooky.

Let's not get into a Current Event's discussion here.  If you guys want to complain about the Wrold Bank, journalists, hardened capitalists, and liberal media bias, get ye to Current events.

I'm afraid I have to agree with you. The older you get the crankier you get. I tend to dump everyone in the same basket but I don't really care much. Just call me a misanthrope.

In that case, I suppose I should be much older.

Hella cranky these days for some reason. Fak.

Todays. Went with something a little different, a minty green dress shirt.

 want to compliment you on the lapels and the high gorge, which I like. But from  the other shots-  (could be the angle)  IMO the shoulders don't suit you as well as a natural would- hell, I don't think pagodas suit anyone much unless they are tailored really well.

AAS that jacket doesn't give u  enough contrast IMO .... your micro check gray ( right)  would be a better look, although that for a fit that casual even better sans tie and with a slimmer watch.  Apart from that I really like it.

On the sales and trading side they help companies/governments raise money through debt or equity and subsequently make sure there's a market in those securities, so that governments, pension funds, insurance companies and so on can match their assets with their liabilities, so that when the time comes for you to enjoy your pension they should have at least matched inflation. Or do you hate getting a pension too?

Yes, there was a bad culture from the early 90s to the late 2000s, but most of those people have been fired by now. Banks employ less than 20% of the people they employed in 2007. There are much, much tighter controls right now, and the new generation (my generation) has a very different mentality from the baby boomers. 

There might be quite a few journalists on this board too but we are certainly all painted with the same brush. No-one ever stops to think of a world without reporters telling people what is happening. Now that would be really spooky.

 

MF sure, the sector is highly regulated now.  Because it has to be. I don't share your 'then and now' observation re: bankers' or anyone else's probity.

I saw Moliere's Le Misanthrope  a few years ago.  Laughed like a drain. 

IIRC that guy got into a whole lotta trouble for refusing to dole out false compliments:)

Thanks for the kind words.  This is one of three non-navy summer jackets I own.  The micro houndstooth resolves to grey, but it's navy and cream which was off limits for the challenge.

The jacket isn't pagoda (Formosa?), it's just shoulder extension. I think natural shoulders won't work well on his build since he has narrow shoulders and he should get structured jackets. To be honest soft shoulders really isn't for a lot of people and many will be better served with an armored English cut.
