    You were ready before you even got here. All you did here is fine tune.


    In other news, I finally told my own parents to get the f out of our lives after 1 year of nonstop verbal abuse of my wife. I hate Korean parents with just one son.

    I cunt punted them, MURL.

    Lol. Just so, your parents are in Korea (Seoul?), you are in Washington, how do your parents harass your wife? Telcos, webcos, skype? Just switch it off, no? :D

    Hmmmmm.....I may be meeting my wife's parents next month.

    For the first time.

    These are the ones who sternly warned her about the dangers of being taken to the West by untrustworthy Caucasian men for subsequent sale into sexual slavery.

    A most opprobrious contumely, as in fact no money changed hands.

    All jokes aside, bravo. Your folks have to respect your spouse and your relationship with her.

    ^ That certainly complicates matters. My wife is very thankful about the geographical distance to the inlaws (exception my dad) as well as own. 'Bit sad, I know.

    ("wee bairn", old English, are we?)

    PS: In other news, living high up in Itaewon-dong does wonders to my glutei maximi.

    Per Claghorn's earlier efforts to highlight opportunities for Noodlers to add some staples to their tie rotation at good prices while supporting affiliate vendors, Hanger Project just marked its ties down to half off. If anyone wants to delve into neats, ancient madder, or wool ties, there are some good options.

    My three favorites:

    Nice heldentenor! Most of my ties are OTR and too long, by like 5 inches. Kent Wang's aren't bad as the construction and knot seems to take up a bit more length than others. Anyhow, I got a Hober last year in the correct length and it makes such a huge difference. I'm planning on getting more soon. I'm in California and with spring/summer approaching I'm thinking that I should focus on getting some S/S ties and hold off on F/W till later. Any recs on what I should acquire? I was thinking about using some of the examples shown recently as a place to start, but maybe in linen or raw silk? Before I get too ahead of myself I thought this would be a good place to ask. Thanks!!

    If you're looking spring/summer and you need a tie that's shorter than OTR standard lengths, the first things I would consider are Hober's rough Thai silks. They're meant for spring/summer wear but I think they're versatile enough to be worn year-round in California.
