Sounds like you need an iPad or 3.

Got one. It's okay for reading.

I can't wait till they make the 17" MBP's with Retina Display. Maybe next year it'll be time to get a new one for work. 

Looks like they discontinued the 17" actually.

Probably because Spoo doesn't like them.

Bowtie: Burberrys (it's pink and looks great with the SC, but maybe looks a little small with the collar) Thrifted by me
SC: Isaia Linen/Silk From NerdyKarim on AAAC
Shirt: BR. Come on! I'm sorry. (it's a bit small in the neck, but fits my arms well) Thrifted by me
Pants: Brooks Madison (gray) From MattR
Shoes (not pictured): AE Strands, brown Thrifted by me

The SC set me back a bit, but it was still a great deal. Everything else was super cheap.

If you'd lay your arms (at least 1) loosely at the sides, I'd have a better idea if that was too long.

The video is a fake concept video though.

I think they just can't get the retina display screens in 17" yet. I'm sure they'll be back.

Picked up a few interesting things today. All available.

 

First up, a Holland & Holland shirt, because I know some folks here like to shoot...

Collar - 15" ... P2P - 21.5" ... Sleeves - 33"

 

 

Next, Trafalgar braces, grabbed because of the really nice burgundy leather.

Now, hoping someone might be able to help me ID this brown knit tie.

The tag says, All Silk, Made in Italy and "C.C.I.A Milano 723293". Google search reveals it might possibly have something to do with Chanel?, but that's all I can figure out.

 

Also, not really a thrift brag, but today I went to the Harry Rosen outlet with some of the cash I've made from thrifting and bought something I've been wanting for a while. Paid a roughly B&S price.

 

Incotex chino-lino pants. Not available.

I really like the chino linos, I was stoked to find them in my size, for every bit of $3

How can you possibly write code on an ipad? That sounds like hell.

It's hard to tell the length of the coat since both of your arms are not at your sides for reference. I like my coats to end at my thumb's first knuckle. I think the button stance is a bit high. Maybe you can use 1 more inch of waist suppression. Love the bow tie. Which university do you teach at?
