    Very cordial of you journeyman - yWhen people post things on the internet it is subject to critique, and often, less kindly than the way you have expressed. I don't think your words warrant an apology. And anyway, debates at times can make more of an interesting discourse than circle jerking each other.

    This I've found to be true, and something I'm grateful for.

    Shit blows up sometimes, but we can't please everybody, nor claim to be able to get along with everybody at the same time. We just.. move on, knowing:

    There might have not been a "need", but live and let live, yes?

    Around Chur Burger there's City Edge Cafe that has some (about 40-ish) really good sandwiches for less than $10.

    Kind of. When I was diagnosed as a diabetic, I really cleaned up my act. Diabetics tend to get swollen feet and, as I got my health back, my feet got smaller. Nearly all my loafers and monks are too big on me now, and I reckon I went from EE to E width.

    Trufitt & Hill's pre-shave oil turned up in the post this morning (along with a variety of other shave related items). Never having used a pre-shave oil before, I was quite curious to know whether it made any difference. I'd say it didn't let me have a much closer shave - but it was a far 'smoother' one. I was a bit more aggressive than I usually could be with the Merkur Vision, and yet didn't feel at risk of cutting the skin at all, compared to normal. I also felt the shaving cream lathered far better with the oil on the skin than without.

    As an aside, another thing that came in the mail today was the Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet Talc powder. Is there anything that could go wrong from me sprinkling a little bit in my shoes?

    Just got back a pair of Incotex from the alterations tailor. Didn't check on pickup (last bit of work was exemplary).

    The split/curtained waistband at the back has been sewn together. They were being altered from a 33 to a 34. I feel a bit bothered by this. Should I be?

    the purpose of the split waistband is to allow easy alteration, so to answer your question, no, you shouldn't feel bothered about it, it's served it's purpose.

    No, this is not true. The purpose of the split waistband is to allow for more comfort when sitting, while maintaining a close enough fit to prevent the trousers falling while standing.

    This. It's been a gripe of mine that some places when letting out trousers will not maintain this split waistband. I could go on about how it adds to comfort when sitting down, but honestly, I can't say I notice a large enough difference. As for the aesthetics of it, don't stress about that, no-one's looking at you enough to give a shit. And that's a good thing :)
