    Airline Prices

    My wife and I are going on a cruise leaving from Civitavecchia (Rome) in October. I’ve been keeping an eye on flights from my home airport (RNO) to Rome (FCO). A couple of days ago the least expensive flight was about $875 RT. The next day, coach fares were $775 RT each. Good deal!! I talked...

    Grey Glen Plaid Suit

    Found a good deal on a 3 piece Ralph Lauren and am wondering if a striped shirt and solid / patterned tie would be okay. Or should I stay with a solid shirt and patterned tie? Also should I stick with a classic white shirt or try a lighter blue, grey or pink? Thanks.
