No I haven't. Last week my wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. One of her bridesmaids husbands bought us a the big thing of Makers. We still have about half of that. Might need to start drinking some more of that.

Bro. Don't sweat. I played more golf during the first month of bar prep than ever before or since. Probably combined. If ONLY I'd been into this hobby then.

Last 2 weeks are hardest. Rest is just doing what they tell you, which doesn't take 14 hours per day.

Bros been killing it. Those EG wing/specs.... drool.gif

Found this vintage Ho Aloha Hawaiian shirt. It has interesting metal buttons and pick-stitching. It's untagged, but probably a size small or extra small and available.

Also, found these loafers.

Nice stuff. And found in my neck of the woods too...

wink.gif Fair enough. You won't catch me going near Jack either, but I'd consider a small batch "bourbon" from outside KY. Black Maple Hills is damn hard to beat.

There's a whole sub forum, but this is where I feel comfortable.  The posters over there are generally an elitist crowd whom would judge you for wearing something as mundane as Band of Outsiders or APC.  I love wearing SCs and suits, but I mostly look like a fuddy duddy professor in them, so I've settled into the wonky SW&D finds.

Ahmad Jamal Live at the Pershing. Fantastic album! One of my favourites!

This was at the local record store (which is in danger of going under, even after a killer Record Store Day) for $4, I offered to proxy for a Bowie fan here but got no love.  Thought about picking up for myself.  Too bad shipping records isn't very convenient, could definitely be cool to start some record trading action.

Brought this very nice POW Check Sportscoat last weekend from PRL. Almost fit perfect apart from needing an inch taken up from the hem. Can't wait 'til the weather cools to bust this out.

So so so glad this is three sizes too large for me.

I know, 3 sizes too big for me, too.

Proceed with caution. The general consensus seems to be that shortening a jacket will make it look "off" due to the placement of the pockets, button stance, etc.

Pics to come.

Snap a pic with your phone, tells you the color. Currently madly in love with it.
