    Laatste wat ik heb betaald (2009) was iets minder dan €18,- per paar (verzonken).

    Help me pick an aviator sunglasses from the following pictures, any other suggestions are also welcome.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The most important factor is the shape of your face, so it's hard to offer suggestions that will actually work for you.
    Well, all four sunglasses are in the same size and their shape suits my face well. I just want to know which one out of them looks the best to you guys.
    When I'm faced with a decision like this where I actually like all of the available choices, I work in reverse and eliminate the one that appeals to me the least. So, in order of least appeal to me... Number 4: I don't care for the end pieces and butt straps. [​IMG] Number 3: I don't like the bridge. [​IMG] Number 2: This was tough because these look very sleek to me but... [​IMG] Number 1: The retro coolness of the tortoise shell rims speaks to me. [​IMG] Hope this helps.

    Sometimes when I wear a dress shirt for an extended period of time I end up with a rash on my neck from the fabric rubbing. The shirt isnt too tight but it ends up starting to suck after a while. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

    -in before the cloth tape! Don't know the answer to your question though, but a few first thoughts: -maybe your shirt IS thight, even though you say it isn't? -maybe it's too loose? who knows? (pic would help). -maybe your neck does not like the fabric of your shirt (description would help, hopefully no manmade fibers) -maybe your neck doesn't like the dyes/chemicals of your shirt (see above) -maybe your neck doesn't like the chemicals in your detergent (see above) -maybe you're genetically disposed? -maybe you should see a doc? -maybe a search would help. in this case google. --> google answers - check it out --> a discussion somewhere else

    I have recently purchased my first real suit (Navy) for when I start my graduate position at an MC firm during the end of the year. I tried the navy suit on with a blue gingham shirt and navy knit tie. It looked quite good but on second thought this may be too much navy? What do others think?

    Navy suit + blue gingham shirt + navy knit tie = too blue?

    Tailoring questions:

    - if I need my tailor to shorten the length of a sport coat (not the sleeve, but the body, perhaps by about 3/4 inch), how big of job is that? and what might be a ballpark price?

    - for sleeve shortening -- assuming the cuff buttons are not functional and assuming the sleeve is overall fairly slim/tapered, what's the max length that a jacket's sleeves can be shortened (from the end, not from the shoulder)? Or is there no max (i.e., 3 or 4 inches is fine)?

    Thanks Digmenow for your time, I was a bit surprised that the Vintage Cartier screw sunglasses ranked low, they were quite popular among the 80s movie stars.

    We aren't in the 80s anymore.

    Lately, I often have the feeling we re-entered the 80s.
