Nickels, you're going to be losing a lot of money if you plan on keeping your end of the deal!

HA! Near impossible on my stiff/newer denim but on a pair of soft and worn down, not too difficult!

It was pretty hilarious.

It was not about the size of the diamond, but the cut and quality (showing that you care and that it was an important decision to you), a style fitting to hers (shows that you know her), and financially responsible (you didn't cheap out, but didn't spend outside your means).

As for your last statement, a friend of mine put it this way: it has to be more than your most expensive hobby (or toy) item. If you buy yourself a $2000 bicycle, but don't want to spend $1500 on a ring for her, you're doing it wrong.


My wife's engagement ring was my grandmother's. She was very touched to receive a family heirloom. I was also broke at the time so I had no money at all. She doesn't like "bling" and loves vintage fashion (50's dresses, etc) so I thought it would be very fitting. She loved it and we had her wedding band fashioned to match the ring. It's all about the woman and their style.

I'd have to disagree with that last statement, though. My wife has told me many times that she'd rather have something we both can enjoy for years to come (money for a vacation and the memories from said vacation, landscaping for the yard, etc) than a fancy ring on her finger.

, just got the stuff you sent.


I guess I'm going to cuddle with the first pair of selvedge jeans I own tonight. They fit better than any pants I've traded on here! Thanks for the extras as well. So excited to have this 'first' for me smile.gif

I'm not too familiar with Unbranded but with vanity sizing and all, I usually size down on my denim. I'm a true 36 but take a 34 from a lot of denim makers. Those were a bit odd though as they ran 2 sizes smaller. Glad they worked out for you!

It's always fun chatting about this hobby in person. It also helps in time-saving because you can ask the person whether it's worth your time to sift through the shirts or pants.

I have a tweed by them made by Zanella. That might be who made yours. Nice quality and colorways, and dual vented. Currently sitting at reasonable prices with no offers; follow link below.

Weird. I think they were a 30 waist? Guessing that was due to the wash though.

x100000. It's only enjoyable saying "oh, jesus..." to myself when I can say it with a smile when fueco talks about how he only drinks artisanal coffees or when 38R talks about being a pocket square expert.

Though, to be honest. I'm a little terrified that I'm going to have to take a piss really badly and struggle to get the buttons of jeans sometimes. I once was almost late for an interview because I couldn't button the button on my sleeve. I'm so inept sometimes...

I hope this means your medical school plans do not involve surgery.
