"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. 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
"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…"
"I stand corrected. I wasn't nearly as thin as him when I started lifting. 12 years of carrying all those water buckets/hay bales/feed bags for the horses probably built my traps enough that I never had an issue with the bar contacting my spinal…"
"I think some of the homophobicity (new word there) comes from the incongruence of seeing a male (physically) act like a girl (11 y/o I believe was in one of the responses to this). It sets us on edge and makes us uncomfortable because we…"
"Too long; didn't read.
Sometimes it means "Can I have a summary?"
Here's my tl;dr: bankrupt the country, make sure Iran gets nukes and we decommission ours, and you've just killed American imperialism, if you believe…"
"Strictly speaking, Manliness is an attribute of men and an affectation of some women. Being male means you can and ideally should father children. So, is a man who don't have sex with women less of a man? Again strictly speaking, yes. Does it…"
"Like the prior service, our quality of Commander in Chief has drastically declined the further away we get from that qualifying factor. Astounding that during the last election (correct me if I am wrong) there was not a single veteran running…"
