Got my linen for summer of the way; 2 linen shirts and since you guys bought up landsend.... I feel it's high time for me to get some shorts so here goes :)

EDIT: Is landsend's linen or madras any good? Thinking of getting some shorts in said material.

Drake's new website is pretty spiffy, if anyone hasn't seen it yet.

Re shoes at airports RM's are a real bitch. Metal shank sets off the alarms pain in arse at best of times.

As for women live and learn and eventually with persistence and luck you find one your compatible with to build a life.

Would rather go to Thailand and pay a bunch of them to crawl around, eat out of a metal bowl and pretend to be my cats.

For a minimalist you'd make a damn sadist no worries!

All Lands end shorts and linen shirts are good. Most ae Baird McNutt Irish linen.

Got my second P Johnson suit recently!

 

 

Wool and linen blend. More pictures and a review here: http://greedanddisgust.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/P-Johnson-Tailors-Review-Suit-Linen-Wool.html

 

A quick style question for everyone though: are those shoes too light to be worn with that suit?

for frequent travellers the rmw dynamic flex is probably worth a go - they've got fibreglass instead of metal for that purpose especially. also are a bit lighter. Factory outlet is cheapest, cheaper than nungen for sure. Sydney side its 250 for any pair of rmw although my colleague from bris says he got his pair at a agriculture show for like 60 bucks?

 

 

I think I will largely refrain from the conversation re females, other than to say I will continue to be persistent and patient, and much envy the folks who are luckier than I in this regard. Much like how I envy those who don't have to think about the orthotic capabilities of the shoes they buy...

Nice new addition to the wardrobe mate.  Just my opinion, but I think the outfit looks good with the jacket buttoned up but unbuttoned I think you'd need a belt or different colour shirt to balance them out.  Completely just my 2c though, either way looks like you'll be staying cool and looking sharp in the warmer months ahead.  Interested to hear how the blend holds up re: linen wrinkles.

 

edit: im surprised you asked if those shoes were too light, compared to the orange you rocked in your PJ suit review pics you've toned it down in your old age :p

I think the shoes look good. It's a light, casual suit and tan (split toe monk) shoes are sending a similar message without contrasting too much colour-wise.

Thanks for the Land's End recommendations, but I am reluctant to buy online (and were I do to so, I'd go straight to the source: Murray's Toggery Shop). I'm just not game to buy any more pants online (of any length) without trying them on first: small things make a big difference to fit. For example, the pair at Tommy Hilfiger were good in the waist, bottom of the legs, and leg length, but just a cm or two too short in the rise.

The pill, plus being constantly reminded by their parents that 'women can achieve anything, and deserve to be in charge of the world', has created this group of completely self-confident women that are more than happy to call the shots, where and when they want.

 

Now, it is well and truly a woman's world from 18-28. After 28, where most men don't change, but women start their long decline, whilst realising that having children would be a good idea, it's well and truly James Brown's world from there on out.

 

There is much truth in this. Interesting, Michael, that you picked the age of 28 - this is the age identified by Chinese mothers as being the threshold for “sheng nü" (left-over girl) status. It's also the median age of marriage for women in Western society (or so I've heard, no citations to back this up, sorry).

This. A man's ageing face signals increasing likelihood of wealth. In a woman, it signifies decreasing fertility. Like it or not, these are the perennial currencies of sexual attraction.

The problem comes from people who like to fight over nothing, cause a scene, and really want women higher than men.

 

FH, you again astonish me with the perspicacity of your opinions. You claim to be autistic. Could you be some kind of sociological savant?

OTOH I have met plenty of tradies with an awful lot more "upstairs" than certain academics. These are the ones who tend to build up their businesses, sell said businesses in their forties and retire with millions in the bank.

What swing is she working? The thing most people miss with these types of jobs (and not saying this is her lot) is that when you divide the wage / salary back by the number of hours worked, the hourly rate is quite average. Most rosters are 3 weeks on, 1 off working 12 hours days, so 252 hours per month, compared to the less than 160 hours most of us get paid for.

And no disrepsect to the lawyer types on here working 80+ hour weeks intended... Not sure if you get paid for every hour or not?
