I think this would be more intimidating.
It's been long since I've posted that I am not sure what to take photos of. I just picked up a Hart Schaffer Marx dark grey 3 Piece suit Sz 38. Flat front center vent. If interest inbox me.
Haha next time i see you at lansdowne man.
Jompso does come up with some bold statements. He is now in my signature line.
And some more grail... I knew what this was before I touched it. 60/40 down parka!
those wine glasses are too dope
Wife used to work at a country club and they had to toss any Riedel that got even the tiniest chip in them. Even the chips that were on the base or stem, barely noticable. Guess who took them all home?
You don't know what a difference a glass makes until you switch from walmart glasses to Riedel.
Can you expand a little? I'm interested on why..
So... Ralph Lauren is no longer the ceo of his eponymous company. It is now under the leadership of the former head of Old Navy. Shit.
Probably end up looking more like this lol
It's a little to do with a lot of things. The most important is probably the aroma. A glass with a wide mouth lets the wine breathe better, but lets the vapors/smells/nose escape. That's why most wine glasses have a smaller mouth than the body. The smaller mouth holds in the vapors so you can smell the wine better. Same goes for snifters, scotch glasses, etc. The glasses we have are huge (they could fit a whole bottle in them if you wanted to) so they allow the wine to breathe very well, but also hold in the aroma with a very small mouth. Riedel puts a lot of work into getting the shape of its various glasses optimized for various types of wine. Check out their website and you'll see tons of different glasses for very specific wines. Walmart/Pottery Barn doesn't invest that heavily in their glassware.
The other most noticable aspect is the thickness of the glass itself. It's extremely thin. I can't really explain exactly why that makes a difference, but it does make the wine easier to drink, and the thinner glass is visually nicer to look at. Again, thicker glass is easier to make and ship - better for keeping costs low.
Beyond that, it's just a well-made glass that feels nice in the hand and on the lips. That alone makes the wine-drinking experience a more pleasant one.
I'm sure a more educated wine-conoisseur could go into more detail. All I know is when I tried Riedel (or similar, there are other glasses out there), I had a better time, even with the same wine.
Can't forget this guy also was an executive for H&M.
Keeping my fingers crossed for some 'Versace for Ralph Lauren' collabs
My boss needed a ride to the airport so I did a quick thrift run on my way back.
Pitlochry Harris Tweed hat (available) and Filson Gray Mac (N/A)
First world problem: The Filson fits perfectly but I 100% don't need any more coats. Still keeping it though. Going to have to turn my car into a closet or something to make room for all my coats.
