"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…"

Short Men's Khakis

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

"We use wooden chips or planks (apple, hickory, mesquite) soaked in water on a propane grill.  Nowhere near the real deal but better than nuthin'."

New Grilling Season, New Lease Restrictions

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. The lease states that we can only have propane or gas grills, and nothing that burns charcoal/wood/etc. I'm fairly certain this is because the porches are wooden, and at some point someone probably did something stupid and caught their third-story porch on fire with briquettes. I've previously been spoiled, and had…See More

David F. replied to Nicholas Boylan's discussion No-Tie Rule
"Just thought of this.  You add a splash of color by using colored undershirts if they don't show through the shirts otherwise.  It would give you the counter color effect of a tie."

"You could go for some patterned shirts to bring more color in. Stripes or check with some colors could bring the outfits to life."

What Do We Learn From History?

I decided to put this question in the main forum, because if it was in a group like The History Buffs, there would be a smaller audience. Because everyone learns history at some point in his education, it is a matter that could be of interest to almost all members and not just a select few.So we all have learned some form of history in school, from local to national to the histories of far off lands and times. What is it that we learn from people of bygone places and times? There are some…See More
