"I found the famous Australian autoduellist Andrew Buttery again after many years! Your game DethKarz was great! I found a copy stateside a few years ago. Please e-mail me so we can stay in contact.
"The one pair work shoes that have lasted the longest for me are a pair of Doc Martens. However, they have the rubber sole rather than a more traditional and dressy leather sole, so they might not be suitable for all workplaces…
"Apologiews on the delay for the update - my travels have not been so Internet friendly recently...
Second fitting took place on Friday (a couple of days after the first fitting). The suits were complete and looked great.
William Cheng first... the…"
"I found out a few more reasons why when I had a couple of suits made recently...
1. As there is not centre seam then a centre vent is not possible. I would imagine that you probably could create one but the tailors I was dealing with in Hong Kong…"
"BTW: I did some comparision shopping yesterday as well.
You can get suits/shirts done cheaper that I have e.g. HKD 1399 (approx USD 180) for wool suit, two matching shirts and ties. Since I've had one or two dodgy tailor experiences in the…"
"First fitting today. LA Elite was first. After a bit of a wait for the tailor to arrive which was filled with a chat with George about Bombay (now Mumbai) and how he has been in Hong Kong for 44 years history in Hong Kong. Then a discussion about…"
"OK today was the first step. Found both tailors without too much trouble. OF the two William Cheng was much more professional. Well organised shop, tidy; while LA Elite reminded me of an Indian tailors shop - bolts of fabric everywhere, stuff piled…"
"I have had two tailors recommended - William Cheng and LA Elite, both in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Suit wise, I have a budget and I'll see how many I can get ;)
#1 Light grey wool, subtle pinstripe, three button, side vents, one piece back, four sleeve…"
"Hmmm... Internet suits. Don't think so.
Firstly, I want to see and feel the cloth that I'm going to be wearing in person. Viewing something on a monitor is not the same as running it through your hands and lying different options side by…"
"OK, I asked the friend who put me onto tailored suits. He heard about one-piece backs from another friend, who read it in a book that it was common in the 60's to have this cut. Both are involved in the music scene from that era and so that…"
I have a number of suits all, most made to measure. As I work in a bank most are single breasted, pin strips in dark colours (navy, chrcoal and black). In the past I have had tailored suits and I loved them, though the tailor I used to…"
"I'm not particularly fond of Trump; to me he's like a right-wing version of Bill Maher running for President, and I wouldn't be found of the idea of Bill Maher running the country even if I was on the left.To me though the least of my…"
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
"Every year at lease since we moved to Pittsburgh in 2008 the Regent Square Theater in Pittsburgh has free showing's of It's A Wonderful Life in conjunction with a local charity food drive.
My wife (girlfriend when we moved here) have not…"
"Phrase it differently: not about avoiding bias, which is impossible, but how can I get info you won't find in MSM?
By checking a variety of sources.
WSJ, sure, and WaPo, and maybe the Economist. But I primarily read editorials not…"
"Good luck on this. You'll be hard pressed to find a news source that isn't slanted in one direction or another. I am suspect of all media that presents things in a biased way, which seems to put me at odds with every source. "
Most political sources online or in the media are pretty awful. Most online message boards especially are havens for fighting and lunatic fringe views.I've been doing a little research to find get an idea of what some more professionally written sources are - If anyone can give me some advice I'd appreciate.On the bottom of the barrel I rank minor blogs, Youtube channels, and most political message boards (where any anonymous person can contribute; ex.
