    I recently purchased a pair of the Clarks. They seem to be the same pants I bought over the last 3 or 4 years and the price was $25 less.

    The Music Performance Thread

    Your father must have been quite the vocalist. I like that this fellow isn’t all about the power and volume. Do you know what his native language is? Thanks for sharing.

    The Chunky Winter Sweater Thread

    I just received my Woolover Shawl Collar Cardigan. It is very nice but not at all chunky. I have one of the new Ragg Wool versions from Bean on the way, I will post a photo when it arrives.

    Most Tradly-Attired Television Character

    We have been watching a series called the Chair with Sandra Oh. The other characters are older tenured University types both male and female. Worth a look for their clothes. I wouldn’t recommend it otherwise.

    PSA: Covid Vaccine Booster.

    Blaming the Internet seems like an excuse for people’s lack of common sense. It is the source of the misinformation that is to blame. The www isn’t going anywhere. I receive a few scam phone calls every week, is it the phone and the comm infrastructure that is to blame? I took the first...
