I agree, and I'm in the process of losing weight, so I didn't want to spend big money on a pair of jeans that won't fit correctly in a few months. The only thing I had to get use to with them is the buttons in stead of a zipper

I have one pair of shrink to fit. They actually are breaking in pretty nicely.

I think Ed tried out a few different Levis fits. For me, the 501 is just about perfect.

I always had button-fly 501s back when I was a teenager so for me it's sort of like a return to normal.

I have a pair of jeans from Club Monaco (side brand of Ralph Lauren) that are perfect for me. They're extremely dark, Japanese material, and fit amazing. Best part is they were over $100 and I got them for $12.90 out the door.

But I think I am going to start wearing my Levi's STFs more as my weekend schedule gets more hectic. I want them to get beat up and faded.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

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

robbing with a sword is a good thing

The Berlins? I met them on Saturday. There was a CF competition in Sterling Heights that I was at. My startup business was one of the sponsors. Brad won it. How long you been doing it?

Is this the new style thread?

Went to the other one to post some of my recent pick ups and it's a ghost land. A few posts said to head over here.

What is YMWDLOM?

My CT Shirts finally came in last week. I haven't had a chance to wear any of them yet since it's business casual this week due to heat. I tried them all on and the fit is very nice.....the fabric is fairly thin, but they cost me <$50 per shirt, so I can't complain.

what about young men who smell like old men?

Mothballs... he's a guy in my office, maybe about 35, programmer, stinks to holy hell of them. everyone refers to him as Mothballs, MB or the lately popular Mr. Mysterious MB...

explanation? he appears to be married and thus the mother of all mothbal moms theory has been roundly rejected.

he smells like a retirement home resident.

I smell like Jean Paul Gaultier. Not sure where this falls in the spectrum of old man smells.

I can't tell what anyone is drinking over the intarwebz, so it's all good.

I wish I could wear a bow tie, but I think I'm too young and my office is too conservative.


There's only one other guy that wears one.....he's 65 years old and has a life partner (not that there's anything wrong with that). Incidentally, he's the best dressed person in our division.
