Case in point. Overflowing to the brim, but always room for more. My monstrously organized sock and French fragrance drawer...

I've got one small sock drawer for summer no shows that I wear with sneakers. All identical black under armour. The parallel small drawer is for pocket squares.
The larger drawer beneath it is for dress socks and winter causal smart wool socks. That one is a beast.

I meant to post a reply about military vintage earlier but never hit "post reply". My 60s era coat was from a site called "vintagetrends" but the site is down. I found those from the 60s were best quality - good feel, very heavy and warm. After my experience with vintage, I don't think I could justify purchasing a peacoat from some brand at retail prices.

I went to the Smithsonian of American History today on my second day of staycation. I hadn't been there for several decades. Nice museum, but talk about information overload. I got tired after one hour of walking through the exhibitions. That's why I prefer art museums. Not much reading.

Cross-posted from "things that are making you happy" thread for some advice from my DC e-bros:

An attractive, single (marital status at least), thirty-something woman just bought the apartment next door to mine. This is a really bad "don't shit where you eat" idea, right?

What would cause you to think living near someone is a "don't shit where you eat" issue? Think of how many people you've lived near throughout your life that you never see or interact with. If something went bad with a relationship with this woman, it wouldn't be THAT hard to avoid her, would it?

That said, I had multiple relationships with co-workers when I was in my 20s (the last one resulting in marriage), so I am maybe not the best person to show restraint in a situation like this.

"Don't shit where you eat" is useful advice if there's a power asymmetry or if you're too immature to be cordial with someone you used to have a relationship with (or, more dangerously, they are). If you can deal with Being A Person In Public if it goes bad, there's no problem with hooking up with your neighbor. Then again, if you're asking...

I think it's always useful as a starting point. Not to mention, you can think you are a mature gentleman but you really have no idea how you or the other mature party will behave if things were to ever go south. How many people "act a fool" despite thinking they are acting rationally? So, yes, bad idea to make a habit of pursuing co-workers, neighbors, etc. I don't think it's a deal breaker but I would be cautious.

I met my now-wife when she started working at my firm, and before we got together I openly (although probably drunkenly) conveyed to her support for the "don't shit where you eat" policy. To this day, she won't let me forget it.

So, I say don't shit where you eat. But on the off chance you end up in a long-term relationship with her, do NOT actually tell her that.
