( thats assuming you work 5 days a week - if its a rostered day off - does anyone still have those? - every fortnight then its closer to 5 months)
You're misinformed and out of date. Studies out of Sweden and Finland have shown that although loosening the belt buckle is a one-hand operation, it is also 2 steps - pull tab out from belt loop and back, and remove buckle prong. Side adjusters - use two hands simultaneously (practice makes perfect) - simply pull the buckle and your gut does the rest of the work by loosening each buckle for you. Average time saved in getting trousers off for attractive man/woman is 0.6s per m height of the pants wearer.

Also, I think Benny Hill started the "tie same fabric as your shirt" look. Now people do that and aren't even trying to be funny.

Why the fuck would you close/button your jacket? How else are you meant to show off that your tie blade is longer than the front?

A combination of things, but don't take me too seriously; I don't take myself too seriously.

 

I mentioned the 'clean lines' on a few premises:

 

- always button up the jacket when standing;

- tuck in your shirt into your trousers properly

- wear trousers with a sufficiently high rise so that there is no 'shirt paunch'

- make sure the jacket is long enough / buttoning stance is proper to avoid the same shirt paunch.

 

 

Even when I try, sometimes I fail; but life goes on.

Thought id try something different for a Monday, its paying off with complments all around:  MJB Denim suit, crisp white oxford shirt, orange knit HC tie, HC Irish linen pocket square, equus burgundy belt, oxblood coloured captoes :)

 

Just on a side note, how do the cooks in here feel about food processors?  useful, worth having?

I fail daily. That's life.

That's the one. I still have the Isaia and Brioni suits, Brioni shirts and lots more besides. The wife is getting snarly about space; I need to find some time to take proper photos and get them up for sale before my op shop hauls have me out in the street.

That would be the ultimate irony.

Can just see the story in the 'executive style' section of Fairfax: 'I ditched the bloke and made a killing selling his clothes!'.

Food processors? which sort do you mean - theres all sort of gadgets around.
Mostly I've found most machines more work than say - cutting with a knife or whisking with a wire whisker.
I do use an electric hand wand musher thingo for soup etc.
Oh and a Rice Cooker - the usual cheap from Asian grocery and a toaster - thats about it - all other things have been tossed away or hidden in back of cupboards.

Oli - I like bullets sometimes - but I find some aren't as nice as others. They seem to be getting bigger each time I get some which is only every blue moon.

nabil - I suspect my problem with waist, shirt paunch and etc wont be solved by a belt or no belt.

Denim suit? How 70's let me put some Yes on.smile.gif

As for food processors I tend to use ours a lot, as for wands I don't care for them never owned one and as for rice cookers forget it.
