Nothing new for the wife or kids...

Yeah but cleaning will be tough. Saphir ain't cheap.

My Ride: reclining rear seats
I was at costco tonight and noticed they had a new stack of shirts...Tommy Bahama button downs for $25. Figured it was worth a shot and it ended up fitting pretty well. I anticipated the typical baggy cut, but it was fairly slim cut, so I'll keep it. Color is different too.....very light blue with a hint of green.....like a light seafoam maybe. Most of my shirts are varying shades of blue, but I didn't have this color blue yet, so it was a must have.

Worth checking out if your Costco has them.

My wife originally wanted hardwood on the first floor, but unfortunately I couldn't find anyone to buy one of my kidneys. So we'll have to go with carpet.

In other important news: some of you may have seen my post on Facebook where I told the exciting story of how I bought a new Scout uniform. Amazingly, the proper size for me was adult small. I was very surprised.

That would be a project I'd be happy to entrust to 12 and 13-year-old boys.

AE just keeps getting worse and worse with their new models. I have a hard time believing there a group of potential buyers crying out for a low vamp kiltie loafer with a buckle.

They'll probably be on clearance in a year for under a hundred bucks.

DWass, totally agree on the hideous factor of those loafers.




On a separate note, I picked up a pair of walnut AE Players from Nordstrom Rack for $80....10.5D. Not sure if I need them or if I like the fit, but they were a steal at $80. They might be a birthday gift for my brother in law.

Agreed, but by early fall.

I really wanted the Player Shoe, but the fit was just wrong for my foot. If they fit, $80 is an awesome price.

i love them. they get more compliments than any pair of shoes i own. no contest. that being said, they're navy blue suede. so they're rarely appropriate.

i am thinking of picking up the snuff suede ones next week at the BB 30% off corporate day thing. i also have a $150 BB gift card i got from Citi thank you points. so they'll only cost me about $190 out of pocket. i'd kill for a ravello or cigar pair but that's literally impossible.
