    Opinions on Ben Silver

    Pretty much agree with all about Ben Silver. I've bought several sweaters,pocket squares and ties through the years but always during their annual warehouse sale. I've been to the store a few times and was happy with their service. One plus for me is that offer pre-folded linen pocket squares. :)

    I Think We Need A Dedicated Pizza Thread

    I was young and very naive when I went to college. My roommates and I went out for pizza one night and one of them order anchovies. Well, I thought it was an Italian vegetable...really, I did.

    Are collegiate sweatshirts Trad?

    I think it's only Trad if the sweatshirt is grey with the only college name printed on the front. Hoodies do not count as do any color other than grey. IMHO

    I purchased a Stihl electric trimmer 3 years ago. I would go through at least one Home Depot/Toro type trimmer a year and one of the reason I did (I think) is that the motor was at the trimming end and would accumulate dirt and after awhile, the motor would konk out. This Stihl model has the...

    Why You Should Always Dress Up for a Flight

    There is/was a thread similar to this somewhere on AAAC and I think it was the OP who mentioned that when wearing a suit or sport coat when flying allows you to empty your pockets of keys, money, watch, etc into your coat pockets and not into the trays. You can then just put your coat into the...
