Buy Boots Too Big Or Too Small?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Carl Malo Schneider Jul 2, 2012. 3 Replies

Hi,I'm sure it's been asked a million times.  I want to buy some H Hudson Herman boots.  I have the option of a 7 or an 8.   I feel the best size for me may be a 7.5.  Should I get slightly too small…Continue

"If the tack is a decent one you can get a new pin soldered on at a jewelers, you can use pencil erasers on the inside of the tie by just poking the pin into the eraser, or purchase a new receiver for the pin."

"Tie tacks can look sharp, but a) they are sharp, and can put a hole in the tie and b) even if that doesn't happen, the catch on the pin will wear down so that eventually it doesn't stay stuck in the holder.  I've never looked…"

"The first and only time I used a tie pin it ruined the tie. I threw the pin away and never used a tie pin or any tie restraint again. If I need my tie to be restrained, I tuck it into my shirt between the buttons."

Tie Pins and Tie Tacks

Hi, I do realise there are probably many posts on this subject, so I'm happy of course for it to be moved.  But I want to discuss not only tie tacks and pins, but the definitions, and maybe also tie bars. Normally, I don't wear a tie.  I used to years ago, and also liked tie bars, but I got in to the mind set that ties were 'stupid', generally hard to keep clean, demonstrated that 'you're workin' for The Man' and 'passe'.  I do wear suits to work, and like to wear odd jackets.  I almost always…See More

Reincarnation

What do you guys think of the concept of reincarnation? I don't know if I believe in it or not, but i think its a very interesting concept, partly because it kind of melds with the conservation of matter and energy. What do you guys think?See More
