I'm not a fan of the Hermes belt buckle. I also think you ought to make your tie a little longer (so it hits the middle of your buckle).

What kind of shoes are you wearing with this?

Or even the top of his buckle. Its much too short.

Can't decide if I like ticket pocket, sometimes its too much, but i think without a square the extra pocket is good.

I like the ticket pocket. I don't have a jacket that has one, but I think that they look good most of the time.

Eh, Berluti doesn't automatically equal "douchey." I tend to like clunkier shoes, but Berluti wholecuts look pretty awesome (at least online).

Whats a good gift for a girlfriend who has too many clothes?
Briefcase looks great. I'd like to get something in that style next year, although I would perhaps go for the tan one as I've started wearing black shoes more and I'd be a bit OCD about carrying a dark brown briefcase while wearing black shoes.

LVC grey marl sweatshirt.

Blundstone 519 boots... I thought about getting some Indy's for the wet, but I knew I'd baby those no differently than the rarest shells, so I just got some blundstones on j crew for $100. Rain/snow here I come.
Quite a hall. Pics of the ravellos? Dark or antique edges? I am selling my JCrew cap toes, btw... determined a D-width is too snug in the Barrie. Live and learn.

You said you have to dress douchey...are you in the hotel biz or something? Given your apparent wealth, I assumed banking, but I doubt an Hermes belt buckle would fly, so something in hospitality is my next best guess.

On another note, I was thinking we got our bonuses in January, but it's not until April. That was disappointing as I have apparently been practicing my Cuba Gooding Jr quotes far too early.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

My Ride: 2011 BMW 135i
So, about a month ago I posted a picture of that little CXL wallet/pen/paper contraption that I had ordered. Well, it was sent out via USPS 1st Class on the 3rd of December and read "Missent" as of the 10th. I called yesterday, opened up a case with USPS for them to investigate where it went.

I get a call today that it was missent to Afghanistan and probably won't make it's way back stateside until late January.


Whiskey tango foxtrot???
