    Oh, you're one of those. :) I'm going to their home opener. If you are, too, we should meet up. I would have to explain to my colleague how I know you, though. Might be awkward... :embar:

    I'd have to explain to my best buds....even more awkward. I will probably be there though, so we just might have to.

    I think Shen is getting more love lately because his fits have really improved, and people are starting to notice.

    Are you implying he bats* for the other team?

    Apparently you are.


    *Forced to use a Commonwealth term, as I have no idea what hitting a ball with that weird baseball stick is called.

    Introducing internet friends to irl friends is one of the great pleasures of life. Watching the reactions is always priceless.

    It's a baseball bat, so the verb remains bat.

    I posted these on GNAT but they are probably worth discussing. I find them really beautiful (from Magic in the Moonlight, Woody Allen's most recent picture)

    I assume they are true to English tailoring of the period. Note three-button jackets, lower gorge, wide lapels, structured shoulders. I think the pairings are really nice. Layering, even dark gun checks in the south of France. Not sure when the season is supposed to be...

    I wouldn't pick a tie that colour for the tan suit in the bottom picture (white with blue or red stripes maybe?) but other than that everything is spot on. The gorge isn't even that low; it looks quite standard and remains proportional to the lapels.
