"Hi David, welcome to the Community. Am a Scotsman living in England currently. I work in a bank so my work week wear is a suit. Am a casual dresser at heart so mostly jeans and shirts. I am in Spain at the moment so am even more casual but even here…"
"Am not a huge fan of ties, but, like you used to, I wear them for work. Best advice is: whatever the main colour of the shirt is, wear it with a tie where that colour is present but in a minor way. I have a checked shirt with several colours in…"
"To be honest, I don't know if Barbers have to be licensed in UK. I got lucky when I moved to Birmingham and found a Turkish barbershop just 5 minutes walk away from my place. It's GBP 12 for a cut and same price for beard work. Seems about…"
"I haven't seen anyone with really outrageous beard at my workplace, but not something that is forbidden. I've seen a couple of really stylish and hipster-y beards in office - I'm based off in Malaysia and in my office there are a lot…"
"Depends on the state and the bird, but for the most part you probably do. It is a state by state thing, so you would want to look up the state you're visiting law, license, and birds in season. A license is generally pretty affordable and in…"
"The US is huge and there is a lot of good hunting in a lot of US states. If you haven't planned your trip yet, which part of the country are you planning to visit? From there, it would be easier to help you find good hunting…"

My sons must have gotten their mother's genes…"

"Because GDP is not a proper metric for economic health when running a nation. It's the same situation there as it is here. The bankers are getting rich while middle class jobs are off shored, and what isn't offshored is being soaked up by…"
"A few years ago The Economist did an article comparing the number of new business start ups and growth in the USA vs the EU countries and it was not good for Europe. It showed most new innovative companies (Apple, Google, Facebook, Tesla, etc) were…"

"Well, this was my big concern after the vote: that the people would speak, and the government would ignore them.
