    I'd like a recommendation(s) for leather gloves. I would like them to be brown, but black or very deep blue like the old calf-skins I used to see would be okay too. I need the leather skin to be thin and close to the fingers so that I can actually do things with my fingers while wearing the...

    How many infraction points do you have? I now have two. Both from the sterilization thread. This is good stuff, now I can actually see my virtual police record, unlike my real police record, or CIA file :icon_smile_big: M8

    Men's Vogue, a Liberal Rag...

    I subscribed to this magazine after reading the first issue. Luckily my payment was only made with some orphaned airline miles. The magazine is obviously a Liberal rag. Edwards is on the latest cover, and the many "green" articles as well as many of the people they profile are in the Left...

    A Visit to Dillard's

    (why do I do this to myself?) M8: Do you have any suits or sport coats with full floating canvas, these all appear fused? Salesman: No, but they do come loose after a few years, so kinda the same thing. Right? M8: That's the problem I am trying to avoid, which is why I purchase floating...

    A rant about Jos. Banks and Rolex...

    I recently purchased a Traveler series shirt from Jos. Banks. French cuffs, spread collar, white. These shirts keep their press (for men who travel), which is what attracted me to make the purchase. After one trip to the laundry the shirt came back with the collar-stay pockets damaged. Looks...
