    This is an abomination; indisputably the work of Hob, The Hornéd One.

    If I were that model, I would have showered for three days and then joined a Buddhist monastery on some mountaintop for several years.

    Edit: Omigod then I saw EFV's post. Excuse me for a minute while I pull my head off and pour hydrochloric acid down the stump.

    True. Even if not literally. I haven't had a bike since my GSXR1000 got stolen (August 2005, Fulham, I've not given up hope of finding you, motherfuckers!), but the one before that was also a trumpet - Tiger 955i, the lurid green one. Funny, a lot of my friends have Hardly Movingsons these days and I'm under increasing pressure to rejoin the club...tempting. But I'll probably end up doing something stupid like buying a watch. Oh, and technically I don't yet own a car...

    Remind me to clean up my room next time I take a fit pic (and Stitch, sharp eyes; everyone else involved, sharp comments)...

    Lol. It's good to see you on waywrn. Dont think you posted very much before. We will take your word for it that it was a shoe tree. :D

    I feel like your todays fit has pants that are a bit baggy. Could help to get it tailored.

    Cheers. I don't post much in WAYWRN because I'm more happy to learn from others.

    Edit: the tree is still there! I guess this will be my calling card for WAYWRN posts.
    I did want to post the incriminating one because of the purple/violet tie which is not the easiest pairing (a final sale, described as "navy" [​IMG]). My feeling is some range of brown for jackets works best for purple (light brown, e.g. sand as I tried, or darker brown, as in today's). Navy and grey too, but that's safer. Anyway, had to post another fit today without incriminating evidence!

    BTW: you are, my friend, cranking out really solid fit these days. Well done.

    Good call on trousers. Those are HY old italian cut trews, so about as slim as I would go (8 inches at the cuff). Standing straight, the lines are usually clean. Not sure what happened there.

    The RL denim 3 piece looks pretty cool though. The color is neat.

    They took a line from AAS and creased the 'jeans' haha.

    I'd need to see it up close, but I might wear the denim 3 piece from RL. Not as a 3 piece. And only if it was free.

    Super cute kids all. And Timo, he does look a lot like you.

    Where the hell have you been?!

    I guess the 1st borns tend to look a lot like their fathers. I don't know if it is a fact but my wife is scared as heck. She said if we have a daughter who looks like me, she will need tons of plastic surgery.

    Dear All Bostonians,
    I have to be in Boston harbour area later next month and was wondering if anyone has recommendations on places to visit with my wife. Any good hotels around there? I am doing research online but $400 per night(!) seems too extreme even if it is on company's dime.

    Maybe if you get plastic surgery first that will solve it?

    Welcome back, Clags!

    We should hang. There are a few others on here as well from the bean. We should get a drink!

    Not sure what kind of stuff you guys are into, but shoot me a PM with what kind of leisure activities you enjoy and I'll try to help!

    As far as hotels go, anything in the city will be pretty pricey (though that's insane!). I'm guessing you're looking at places in copley though, so that's to be expected. I don't think that even the Liberty hotel is that expensive a night, though I could be wrong. The Hyatt Regency near MIT was nice (family stayed there during visit), as is the Hilton Back Bay (I errr 'crashed' here once). I can't really speak for price much sadly.

    @TM79 is from boston though I think?

    Noodles, you can expect to pay $300 for anything in the city. If you want to be cheap, you can always stay nearby in Watertown or Brookline and take the T in, it's really easy. When are you headed that way? I'll be in DC the week of 22 Sep.
