"I'm rather short, and one thing I've discovered is that the "rise" of the pants is also very important. What invariably happens with me, when wearing a regular rise, is that the pants fall to my natural waistline, which…"
"I'm an oddball tie lover, and the Jerry Garcia abstract ties at Kohls are great.
For a more standard look, however, I find you can buy good ties at pretty much any menswear store. Macy's sometimes has good builds.
Also, can't go wrong…"
I'm 5'5". Not exceptionally short, but short enough that buying pants is a huge pain in the ass. See, my inseam is ~27".A while ago I taught myself to hem my own pants. This, after some extreme frustration, turned out to be a not-so-bad thing as I could actually get a decent look going. I've got hemming dress slacks down pat, and if I buy 29" inseam jeans (kind of hard to find) it doesn't look bad. No matter how I try, though, or what style I purchase, I can't seem to find khaki's that look…See More
With a new grilling season now upon us, I'd like to get the AoM community's opinion on something.I've recently moved to a new apartment, and we've got walk-out porches off the backs.

"Ya I have the same problem. My boss does not ware a tie. I deal with it by dressing well in all other aspects including having fun with cuff links. You can dress well without a tie, you just switch the details. Also get…"
"I love wearing ties, I truly get treated different when not wearing them. That said I think the pocket square in colorful patterns are a great way to compliment the wardrobe. You can have fun with monograms on your pocket and cufflinks as…"
It may not be entirely symmetric ... but its probably moreso than that makes it sound. Pants are a unisex article of clothing. Like t-shirts. They make pants specifically for girls. Dresses aren't at all…"
"Damn you can't even understand simple English. I gave examples of why someone would do this, I didn't judge them based on some damn ass-upmtion I made about their situation, you all did. If you can't tell the difference…"
"You've been speculating. You've been making all manner of assumptions. You've been making excuses for why someone would do this.
Then you deride others for speculating and making assumptions. Can't have it both ways."
"It's not symmetric.
A boy wearing a dress is a freak, but a girl wearing pants is, well, a girl.
Same for makeup.
Same for a backpack with Hot Pink Princess Barbie v. Transformers. Although the girl might get a raised eyebrow on that…"
