I wouldnt say I am quite portly (not saying you said that) and I find belts quite comfortable.
You're bringing booty back.
Not at all, although perhaps in the archaic meaning (of a stately or dignified appearance) with all your Formosa and Panta suits? Now that I think of it, there aren't many portly posters at all. When it comes to that the SF member base does not represent real life at all. Too bad.
How do you fit the waist on side adjusters? Use a waist size for trousers equivalent to braces, belt, etc?
Our friend that is AWOL seeks your opinion on these two ties
Oh he also kopped these:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
I love #2 and do not love #1. Color is difficult and three different kinds of dots seems busy on top of an already textured tie.
I am enjoying the fact that a certain someone hasn't posted anything, but has liked your post. A thumb is worth a thousand words, or something like that ...
My post and pretty much every other post on his predicament.
Also, congrats to Noodles for finally kopping that striped grenadine Hober.
@in sitches maybe North East Asian "wimmenz" do. But not such an issue with South East Asian "wimmenz", IMHO.
On a more serious note, both my partner (from South East Asia) and I are on the same page regarding social etiquette. We're old school and believe its polite to give your full attention to the people whose company you're sharing. If not, then why bother meeting with them socially? (Sorry @The Noodles )
When other's don't reciprocate in a non-business social setting, then we politely excuse our selves and prematurely leave them to their own (ahem) "devices" and decline future social requests, if they don't change once we've pointed out the reason. I'm over 50, so I'm starting to value my time a lot more.
Frankly, I expect my above old school attitude may get me stoned and/or flamed by younger members here at SF, so I'm bracing for impact.
Haha! My wife is SE Asian (Cambodian), and totally owns me. She's terrifying. But I think that says more about me than anything else.
I have a ridiculous affinity for ties like this.
Don't worry, i didn't get them.
And a lot of it. Hell, you have hands on experience with it.
Top is maybe ok, but nothing special, and as a very dark tie its kind of limited in use I think, bottom is v nice.
Kops made are well done.
Objectively bad, very glad you did not get them.
Yeah. Checking SF during dinner is pretty not good.
I talked to my wife about Mrs. Noodles...they're both Korean...and she suggested her sensitivity towards Noodles dressing "like an old man"--the root of her animosity towards us being that we constantly contradict what she thinks looks good--is due to the age difference. Her cohort of Koreans buy their suits at Zara and the like. 1 inch lapels, short jackets, etc. Mrs C said that many Korean women are sensitive about that kind of thing and like their SO's to dress like the women's age rather than older (should there be an age gap).
I disagree of course...in my mind, nothing highlights one's age more than dressing younger than it.
Naughty boy. He needs a business connected to SF so when that happens you can just say "but I'm working"...
Let me guess, the motifs are too big, incongruous pattern, (on tie #1) and the colors don't work together. Am I correct?
Separate names with a comma.
