What were you dong in Iraq? Do you work in the oil industry?
No, I was in the Army for a while and then I was a private contractor on the U.S. ambassador's security detail.
Yeah, you're right. Continue on gentlemen. I wish Caustic Man all the best when he moves to , if I ever came to Kentucky, I'd want to get some Makers' Mark, talk to Rand Paul and see your collection, maybe do some helicopter hog huntin'. BTW, Revolver Ocelot is a bad-ass.
I recommend Willett over Makers.
I had to Google that.
Do you have a very particular set of skills honed over a number of years? Are you Liam Neeson!?
After what he said about guns in the U.S., no way! lol

Thanks for the compliments, gents.
@Caustic Man, I thought a bit about the square, and basically my decision boiled down to this.
Pretty much everything there is a cool color, particularly the square. Brown does not exist on the color wheel, and apparently there are cool browns and warm browns, and I would say that the brown grenadine I have on falls in the cool brown camp.
On top of that, I felt the burgundy shoes tied it up nicely. I know stylistically there are not everyones cup of tea (pB is a general douche so no need to be concerned there), but color wise, I felt they were the best play.
@ridethecliche, I would have liked to, but I have a hard time getting good pics with the coat on over the suit. I was also kind of hurried and didnt have the time to do it. Maybe another time.
Clag that jacket looks too much like a suit jacket.
I'm glad you are seeing the truth now.
I'd have to reserve judgment on that until I would be able to see a closeup of the fabric. As of right now, I would say that it isn't an unreasonable looking jacket. (Btw, see? Told you the subject would move on. *pew! pew!*)
Look at the styling. It's a suit jacket. It gets a soft pass if it has patch pockets though.
