That much is for sure.

 

Which is quite shitty, because young guys like me aren't given a chance.


With the current job market I can't envision buying a car younger than 10 years old let alone a house :(

Girls - there's some cute eye candy. #notcreeping

 

 

Ideal. Location.

I've never been to Seoul, but I've got to say that I can't really imagine the centre of Tokyo, including places like Shinjuku, Roppongi and Shibuya, ever being described as "super tranquil" and "zen"!

buy 2nd hand - i do it and watches dont really lose value in the 2nd hand market - i trade them before they need a service and save on servicing costs too:)

What does everyone think about the waist? It is a bit loose (actually looser than it appears in the photo) but I suppose that's the look... I wanted to avoid putting darts in the back unless it's absolutely necessary.

Id agree the sleeves are a tad long but the body looks good, especially on your shoulders/chest. A popover inherently needs to have some room to get over your head without being baggy. 

 

Re: sleeves can you ask your mum/gf/wife/person with sewing ability to move the button position slightly? making it tighter in the sleeve with raise where it sits on your wrist and save the need to shorten it. Ive been wearing mine over summer so Ive been rolling sleeves untucked with shorts and loafers but in winter id wear it exactly as you do

Thanks for the advice everyone. I probably am comparing it to my dress shirts - good point CW. I might just have the sleeves altered by a tailor rather than me/my girlfriend butchering it.

My popover fits perfectly all round. Thanks for modelling it off me, Rob, much appreciated! biggrin.gif

Sleeve length, everything. It'll even double in winter as a shirt I can wear under sweaters. No-one'll notice that it's a popover smile.gif

Considering a quick (1 week - 10 days) holiday in one place (ie just one city, I hate rushed traveling.

Was considering Japan, again, but Seoul's a bit cheaper to fly to.

Other options are basically anywhere in Australia, SE Asia, NZ, or even India.

Likely on my own, though.

I've been to Seoul and didn't enjoy it but I wasn't on holiday.. Much preferred Japan, sg, hk over Seoul but everyone has own experience

g-banger, that is easily purchasable in dual (median) wage household so I fail to see what the problem is...
post #27569 of 58003
You don't get a lot for the money though, maybe that's what G-banger is getting at. If you make under 85k a year then it doesn't leave too much in the pocket for shoo purchases! And if you want a family and backyard forget it. I guess that's part and parcel of inner city living though.

Canberra is expensive enough but we have a high average income here (too many public servants). Where I live just across the border is catching up too lately, but we paid 450k for our fully renovated 3 bedroom house with a huge backyard 18 months ago. It'd be up around 485 now, same thing in Canberra would be about 550-600 depending on location.

As long at interest rates stay low house prices will stay high.

 

Raise the rate to 15% percent and see what happens.
