"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."

Native Son replied to Nicholas Boylan's discussion No-Tie Rule
"Just don't wear your dress shirts buttoned all the way up...unless you really want to look like an Iranian politico."

BJ McGeever replied to Nicholas Boylan's discussion No-Tie Rule
"You could go for some patterned shirts to bring more color in. Stripes or check with some colors could bring the outfits to life."

David F. replied to Nicholas Boylan's discussion No-Tie Rule
"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…"

Holzie replied to Nicholas Boylan's discussion No-Tie Rule
"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…"

Mike Wisbrock replied to Nicholas Boylan's discussion No-Tie Rule
"Depending on where you are, you could go with Boots and an unbuttoned longsleev, or, alternately, colored silk tees or woven shirts with slacks and sport coats."

Liam O. replied to Nicholas Boylan's discussion No-Tie Rule
"call me crazy but i think if someone wanted to help me relax, telling me I couldn't dress in the manner I considered appropriate for meeting with a client would be a bad start."
