Hmm...I'm in the market for a new wallet soon and their 6 pocket vertical is looking really nice.

The raw unfinished is something I like and I don't generally carry business cards in my wallet so this might be my next one. I love the forest green CXL one.

Unfortunately the fat suit was already almost completely rebuilt the first time I got it. It was a complete suit from Men's Wharehouse my buddy bought for me to be in his wedding. In order to get pants that fit I had to get a ginormous jacket. The tailor took in every part of the jacket he could to make it fit decently, it was still a bit large but serviceable. Now it is comically big again but I don't think it has much more to give as far as taking it in. Bummer as it is a halfway decent suit. My fault for being such a lard ass in the past.







I have seen you and Dave talk about SuitSupply, was always too nervous to buy online and hope it worked. Looks like there is a store in San Diego that is close enough to where we will be. Think I might try to find something this weekend to be safe but if that doesn't work out I will hit that store and see what is available. They look really nice online.
Suitsupply tends to lean to the ... leaner side
I'd say

Their jackets fit me perfectly off the rack ... but the pants are always tricky because they run super slim
So if you are still a bit on the bulkier side, I'd not bank on suitsupply
(But then again I only shopped the slim fit cuts ... they may very well have more generous cuts available)

Do your best to find something local first
And stop in at suitsupply to check it out for future reference

Figured I'd share since Ed is probably pretty busy right now.

Well congrats either way! Can't complain about healthy baby and mom!

I don't get any of this stuff, from here I'm only friends with Dave (Vader) and Dave (NFR) on FB.

thank you, all
our new baby girl CARIS JOY KIM
born on july 31, 2019
just a little early at 37 weeks and 4 days
weighing 5 lb 10 ounces

so we had a "vanishing twin" in the beginning ... which is probably why the blood test picked up Y chromosomes
but at week 20, anatomy test, the doctor told my wife "oh look there, it's a boy"
so all this time we had been preparing for a boy baby

so imagine our surprise when we heard "oh what a beautiful girl"
i just thought someone didn't see the weewee yet...
then when the nurse told me "come meet your daughter" i was just stunned
did his balls not drop or something? is he missing a weewee???
anyway
i don't care that it's not a boy
the baby is so precious
and we are just happy that the baby is healthy and mommy is doing well

we do have to get girly clothes though

Congrats!!!

I only broke the news of the little surprise because I figured you wouldn't be around here for a while.

No problem
I appreciate it

I'm popping into fb and elsewhere in between naps and feedings to post updates
So tired but amazing feeling to hold my baby girl

I recently lost my Seiko SKX009 and I'm now looking for a replacement. Budget is ~$600; I'd like for it to be automatic and have a similar style to my old watch. The waterproof rating is unimportant; I don't intend to go diving with it. Any reccs?
