"I have been using Ogallala Bay Rum shaving soap lately. It makes a lot of lather very easily, smells great, and doesn’t seem to dry out my skin as much as Williams.
I see you are in the United States, so I can’t comment on…"
"If you have worn those boots with mess dress, that's a perfect reason to buck tradition slightly and wear them with civilian black tie. After all, military mess dress and civilian black tie have been borrowing details from each other since the…"
"Yes, to all three bullet points. :)
But to go into a bit more detail:
A white pocket square is classic, but dark colours work well too.
Black shoes are appropriate. Boots are distinctly non-traditional with evening formal.
Cologne: use a…"
"Business casual sounds about right to me. Dark pants and black shoes, since it's in the evening. Shine your shoes. Sport coat, no tie. Maybe drop the sport coat if you feel it's too dressy, or add a tie if it's not dressy enough.
"How about some more info? Attire for a fundraiser at a rural Saskatchewan wagon wheel museum would be different from one at the Guggenheim in New York City. Also time of day and activities at the event would make a difference."
"If I’m at a barbecue with a shirtless cook, I would lose my appetite. The thought of another man’s chest hair, armpit hair - or the sweat thereof - falling on my food turns my stomach.
And aren’t your family and friends the most…"
"Always go with the grain first.
I find I cut myself only when I accidentally move the razor perpendicular to handle: make sure you move it only parallel to the handle.
One thing that may help with this is holding the razor by the very end of the…"
"The Vincero grey is light enough that dark brown shoes and belt would go well with it, I think, but for a special occasion in the evening, I would go with black shoes.
Another suggestion: since you are wearing a vest, consider suspenders instead of…"
"I don’t mean to sound snarky, but have you considered the possibility that you seem to have more facial hair than your peers only because they have already been shaving for a few years? Don’t most men start shaving younger than 16?"
"Without knowing more about the event (place, attire specified on the invitation, age and lifestyle of the other guests) I can't say for certain that it would be inappropriate, but my first impulse is to say don't wear that unless you are…"
"Definitely knee-high kilt hose with garters and garter flashes. Shorter socks look terrible with kilts. The only way short socks would be excusable is if you are participating in strong-man competition or something like that. For an event with any…"
"I have recently started using Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom, which gives a very light hold and does not give you the “wet look.” Just what I’m looking for, but if there is a less costly alternative I would probably switch."
"You have the right idea -- change the blade when it’s noticeably duller. But I’m surprised that you get that much life out of a blade. I change my Astras after about six or seven shaves. What kind of blade do you use?"
"I have used this trick in restaurants several times:
The lanyard has a spring clip on the end, the kind that are often used at business events to hold name tags. I clip to it to the inside sweatband and hang it from the back of the chair or some…"
Hi there Dean. Welcome to AoM. Also, I'd like to give you a friendly invite to check out my group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you with us.
I have a question about interest in savings account. Is the interest (.85%) added every month? Is this interest taken from the account at the single moment in time or is it averaged over a month, or the year? I only ask because I though my interest would be upwards of $10.00 after a large deposit but it was only a few cents higher than the past few months. WTF.PS. It feels great to see frugality at work. The most I have ever saved. Woohoo. Must keep grinding. PeaceSee More
"Now, now Jon. I know bickering with troll is a favorite past time. But hey atleast this time he is actually following through and working out. Sometimes I envy super skinny peoples, I have a friend that started out twiggy like that. Guy even looked…"
Are you in PR, marketing or marcom? Are you a journalist, blogger or freelancer? The purpose of this group is to get those folks together. The founder is in PR and regularly pitches to bloggers but writes himself. Let's get together and share opps.
If I understand it correctly, you have a good female friend, her beauty is at least "cute", you like to spend time with her. -> at the moment<- you don't want a relationship or something like that with her.
Well, I agree…"
"will ..just by doing this you are doing what you need to be doing. Getting out there in public is what will make it. ....so folks like me can retweet your posts.
I would also suggest that actually, you are in a perfect position to really capitalize…"
