"I do like the site. I also got a canvas work vest for a steampunk costume last Halloween from them. It was the most expensive part of the costume, but it's also something that's much harder to find every day, especially in a rural area…"
"Thanks for the advice, M, but I was talking about a full back as opposed to a backless vest, not a self back as opposed to a satin back. Most low cut vests are backless, since they're cut on the same pattern as white tie pique vests.
"With summer coming up, a nice pair of tan Venetians is a good choice. Since you've already got black and dark brown shoes, I'd go with something in the cordovan, cognac, or tan ranges no matter what, to round out your choices."
"I recently came into possession of a Dobbs Carleton straw fedora for summer use and it turned out to be a lighter gray than I expected, closer to a dove gray than a charcoal or Oxford, like my winter dress hat. I was wondering if this made it too…"
"I don't often have occasion to wear a tuxedo, but when I do I like the more traditional look of the low cut, three-button vest. Does anyone know if it's possible to get one with a full back or would I have to go to a custom tailor to gt…"
"Is the area outside the classrooms, offices, or cafeteria in my law school considered and 'out-of-doors' indoor area? I've been carrying my hat around rather than wear it in the lobby or the library, but I wasn't sure."

"I lived in KCMO for years - any truck company near The Paseo or Troost needs to issue vests. LOL
I guess I may have been a little strong - heck my dad was a small town cop so I'm certainly not "anti-police". I just question why…"
"There, i will cede defeat. I have absolutely no clue. Well... maybe a little clue. The main station for one of my jobs is in a truly vile part of town. Hell, i had to patch bullet holes in the roof this spring. Armor, i could see here. The MRAPs? No…"
"Ok, I'll cede that one. It is interesting though, that when we talk about the police, it is always referred to as civilian law enforcement.
Still open is the question of why police forces need MRAPs and armored vehicles to serve bench…"
noun \sə-ˈvil-yən also -ˈvi-yən\
: a person who is not a member of the military or of a police or firefighting force
"Citizen" merely refers to anyone born or naturalized into a…"
"A civilian is someone not in the military. Check the dictionary. There are other words, like citizen, that could be used. Of course saying citizen doesn't have the same "I'm cool" factor as pretending to be…"
