"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.

"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…"
""And there's also the restrictions on how to refer to this or that group. It may currently be the majority of the cases. But cases that don't fit that description shows that something else is up as well."

""We just want to drink milk with our breakfast without getting called Nazis and becoming a part of a contrived Harry Potter analogy."
The good news is that the amount of people you will encounter in your real world life who will equate…"
""Example: replacing "female circumcision" with "female genital mutilation." Neither term marginalizes or un-marginalizes females, but the first sounds harmless. (I'm totally on board with this change, by the way,…"
"Liam, I don't know how familiar you are with 4chan but a lot of what goes on there essentially falls into the chaotic evil category of things. Doing things for the sake of doing it, creating fake stories to see who'll fall for it, doxxing…"
