    We need a regularly updated centralized list in the OP so we can keep track of what to start buying andwhat to stop wearing.
    Inspired idea! like a taste period from worst to best? We could use AAAC as the foundation.

    I think you just shifted yourself into 'Overhyped'.

    Where does that leave the SF AZN Contingent?

    It was downgraded to pre-buzz status under the cycle's affirmative action policy. That's what happens when you've got too many overperforming Asians and only one underperforming Moo.

    Ohhhh, OK. I like how you continue to think that your opinion matters. Persistence is key, I guess.

    This thread hurts my head. Is it still ok to wear my knit ties?

    It never was.

    Buzz: Officepants

    Fuck Zenny I got all the way to page six hoping I'd be the fist to buzz Officepants I should've expected you'd beat me to it, but you could've done it on page one so I wouldn't have had to wade through six pages of this shite.

    Overhyped: elbow pockets, MOP buttons

    I think they're fine, but they are overhyped.

    That sounds pre-pre-buzz to me... Or did you mean patches?

    Derrrr, yes, that's what I meant.

    Elbow pockets are already at backlash, in the one minute since I posted that.

    With Manton's impending dinner suit order, I think it's fair to say that double-breasted dnner suits with shawl lapels are at least pre-buzz.
