Busy Saturday, dressed for bit of work, then a bit of play.
This looks great.
Nice color combination
iroh is quoting a pic from nearly four months ago? That is some dedicated trolling.
Details on dog?
Perhaps he is a little... slow.
The essence of fall.
Great picture, congrats.
I WANT YOUR JACKET. PM ME SO I CAN BUY IT FROM YOU
English Staffordshire Bullterrier (small but playful breed, with a whole lot of love in her).
We came home yesterday from our Caribbean cruise ..Had 2 different hurricane-style storms - started with stormy, rainy weather for 2 days, then beautiful sunny, 85 degreees, hot n humid, then moved into gale force winds for the last 2 days aboard ship... watched swimming pools water slosh all over the decks, deck chair blew off the ship, lotsa food and activities...Caught a cold from the 'breezeway' at Ship's dock. Otherwise, your 'typical' cruise. Heard about the Nor'easter and the snow storms up here in Metropolitan area.... Different people aboard ship reported up to 18" of snow in different areas where people came from. Back to work on Monday....
Had a good time, but glad to be home...
A three-hour tour. A three-hour tour.
Welcome back, Tom.
Are you guys ready for a 3 way fit battle Monday?
Before we begin an information cascade over our love of soft shoulders, I'll throw my comment in the ring and say that I don't, in principle, disagree with the idea of more padded shoulders. I have the same slight body type as PG and sloping shoulders and there are times where some padding is an asset, not a liability. This looks all very nice and sharp in a photo, but don't let the other elements and clean photography distract you (or is this falling on deaf ears...? this is WAYWRN, after all). In Real Life™, an aggressive sloped shoulder like that really gives a diminutive look, provided your peers are larger and more angular. This is why those of us with the PG Body Type (PG included) have to really go hard on the other elements and look sharp as tacks to counteract the diminution. A t-shirt just doesn't look so good.
There may be some normative cultural bias at work -- in Tokyo and Naples, where the average fashionable man we like to post pictures of on this board is much shorter and slimmer than his, say, American or Norwegian counterpart, a sloped shoulder is forgivable, if not even desirable. But in the wrong context (meeting with basketball players), you will wish you had your padded shoulders.
