"big bear...?"

:crackup:

Maybe I should have stayed "super fooking fat" instead of my current "not quite Patrick" size.

Ordinarily I wouldn't spend a dime there but those shirt are supposed to fit like a glove.  Whether or not that's a driving glove or the love glove has yet to be determined.

This summer my wardrobe is going to be Bermuda shorts, American Apparel tee shirts, Swatch watches, and Chuck Taylors.  MLB authentic on-field hat optional.

#swag

For christmas I got a Lord and Taylors gift card. I think I'm going to purchase some sunglasses. I can't think of anything else I need from L&T or what I can really buy with whats on my gift card.

Didn't feel like cluttering up the Red Loft with new topics, but anyone have any experience with Chrome bags?  I'm thinking of getting one of these to replace my current Timbuk2.  Too bad they don't offer this color selection in the left handed version:

The first 400lb hipster?  All joking aside, I've been loyal to Timbuk2 for over 10 years and I'm ready for something new.  Reminds me of when I changed from the Columbians to the Afghans back in college...

AA tshirts kick ass. Granted they run crazy small for the labeled size and only go on sale to something approaching a reasonable price twice a year.

Somebody - Post?  Washingtonian?   - had an article a couple of months back about a niche clothier in DC who used hi-tech scanning technology to measure you extremely accurately (as well as take a peak at your junk, most likely    :? ) and build a suit that would fit exceptionally well.   Their business was booming.

Anybody recall this?

:nono:

I have to take dress shoes, my suit, a laptop, and all of my health foodz (i.e. 2lbs of chickens and fruit) with me every day.  Panniers are great but I'm leery having it not strapped on me when I ride the mean streets of the Danger Zone® into that land of savages known as the District of Crapfumblia.  :smh:

took a suit out today to wear that i had bought at Jos. A Banks last year and noticed two 1/4" holes on the right pant leg.  I've worn it once and had it cleaned once.  I'm guessing I have no chance at filing a claim with the dry cleaner as I don't have my receipt.  I'm going to take it back to Jos. and see if they will do anything.  It was a $600 suit on the price tag.

Sigh...........

Alton Lane. Interesting concept and solid advice. Made in Thailand has me a bit wary but at the $500-$700 it may be worth it. Apparently they are competing with other m2m such as My.Suit (N.Y. only) and Indochino (measure yourself :shock: ).

If you really really know what you're doing. Otherwise nay.

You'd breaking a basic fashion rule and it's one of the trickier ones to pull off.
