Hello there,I've been watching Mad Men for a while now (partly because of the story, but mostly to steal whatever style tips I can). However, there's one thing that's been bothering me. Whenever you…Continue
"Barefoot, tank tops and shorts. I wear a shirt so I don't gross out my 10 yr old daughter. If o had a son I'd go shirtless. An elegant yet modern way to dress would be a preppy polo shirt, nice shorts or kahkis and some…"
"Exactly. Do you dress for yourself, or do you dress for others? Especially in you own house, you can do what you like. Sometimes that's sweats with at T-shirt, sometimes that's something completely extravagant. "
"I grew up in the 50's and don't remember anyone dressing at home in a suit, etc. Maybe they did in NYC but not in Virginia. I will say it was probably a little less casual than today. But anything goes for me; I'm at home, that's…"
"If you're just hanging out around the house, what's wrong with sweats and a T shirt? Some of the Mad Men style is cool, but come on. You're hanging out at home. No need to get fancy. Plus, those guys are probably always…"
"Tell that to the people who should be fixing my heating! Funny thing is that wealthy families never had a real worry about heating. It was only about the beginning of the twentieth century (higher taxes and depleting fortunes) most people living in…"
"For me I usually wear the under layer of whatever I wore that day. In the summer it's usually a t-shirt/button down/polo and jeans, in the winter it's usually corduroy pants/jeans and a sweater of some kind. I really don't…"
"Ahaah! I often wear one out of bed until I feel like showering in the weekend. In the summer only with boxers under them, in winters with an old button down shirt and soft and flimsy pants. The robe is scarlet corduroy, and was made for my (sort of)…"
"I don't know if anyone would call me a gentleman and certainly never "elegant" but I usually wear jeans and a colored t-shirt around the house. If I have company coming over I may put on a polo with nice jeans. …"
"Interesting. I know guys used to wear robes around the house (from the 1800s through to the 1950s), however now a days they've kinda gone out of fashion. I've even heard people describe house robes as being "gay", which is kinda…"
"My day consists of a wide variety of chores, some dirty work and some out-and-about. So I wear things that are functional in both because I haven't the temperament to change cloths three or four times a day. That means jeans and a decent…"
"I don't see why Americans care whether other nations are grateful. It isn't about them. US defence is for defending the interests of the USA. If another nation benefits, aka Iraq in the 80s, so be it, likewise, if times change and that…"
I'm working on unclogging the utility sink in my basement. The setup of my home is stupid, and the kitchen drain goes out the same pipe as the utility sink where the washer does. 2 1/2 years and the drain has clogged a few times. I'm usually able to clear it out with a couple hours and an auger (get a good forearm workout too). When it does clog up, despite using traps to block it out, there are all sorts of nice food bits that accumulate, as well as grease and laundry lint.This time, it's…See More
