    Luv, great work. With my students I often cite two issues, one how they think about their work and two how they present it. How they think is informed by me but How they develop and interpret it accordingly is fascinating. I learn much more than I impart. This is mirrored here thanks man.

    Perfect, in my opinion. Where was this purchased so that I may take a closer look, if I may ask?

    Do you plan on leaving the buttons as is or swapping them out for some color?

    L2B,

    Get the chocolate knit. It's excellent, though you probably won't have too much time to wear it until next fall.

    Thank you very much for sharing. A shame I am a 40R and that would never work for me but I appreciate the consideration.
