I don't think so.

We're having an overnighter in our back yard with the scouts tonight. We'll be shooting the bows while we still have daylight.

I doubt any tweed or cordovan will make an appearance, however.

"Dear Archers,

We just want to clarify, this is not a black-tie event. However, we do encourage you to be as dapper as you can for an outdoor autumn party in the countryside. We are envisioning a Great Gatsby meets English Hunting theme. Some men will be in suits and tweeds and ladies are encouraged to be festive, yet comfortable.

Better to be over dressed than underdressed!

See you Saturday!"

Dave (Mormon Dave), well not just you, everyone should watch it I think....

have you seen this? i watched it the other day. super interesting. Vice magazine did a 7 part series (below is the full version) called "The Mexican Mormon War" and how Mitt Romney's family still has a comune down there and they are fighting the drug lords, and highlights their perception of American immigration policies. Very interesting.

Bb's online business is an anomaly
There is no consistency at all

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Some are great
But I wear them more casually because the ones I have are not as nice as my "real" dress shirts

Cool that should work for me, I think. My office is very business casual.

Have a "YWWDLOW" question for you guys - wifey is looking for a briefcase. Something that will transition well for the remainder of law school and into her career. She would like something a but more masculine (being a woman in law), similiar color to an AE strand in Walnut and sub $400 would be great, willing to go to $500 for something exceptional. Here's a link of what she has found so far that caught her eye.

I am also looking for a $500 briefcase not for court though.

Your link looks to be a fairly thin leather. The shoulder pad seems useless. This is just my opinion based on the site.

Ill post some links tomorrow that have good reviews from SF.

Should have worn a tie today
A navy knit would have been ideal
It would have complemented the rest of the outfit
On the train now, will post a pic later
Think most will agree

I like the style but I already have a black leather BMW messenger bag. I use my backpack now as I can carry the laptop, power cords, a book or two, binder, and a few aux pockets.

I like the style though, would prefer it in grey, and not $500.
