My name is Tom Kenyon. I'm a 52 year old husband, (28 years, all to the same girl) and father of 3, ages 27, 20, and 6 (proving that God has a sense of humor). This is going to sound odd, but I'm…Continue
"Same here. I have to assume it's caused by the afternoon stubble on my neck and like you said, my neck spilling over my collar. I don't know the answer. For important occations I have carefully "shaved" the edge of the tie,…"

"I do think bow ties look better with a DB suit or a suit with a vest. When wearing them with a conventional 2 button or 3 button suit you have got to ensure the shirt is properly ironed. One of my recent shirt purchases, for the life of me always…"
"For the most part, the Fedora Lounge crowd has convinved me about '30s and '40s era hats with no taper, as well. I don't mind a little taper, though, and I had been looking at a gray Stylemaster as my next hat. As far as the shirts,…"

"I do tend to over dress a bit. One day, at 50 years old, I was wearing what I always wore when not at work; a t-shirt and baggy cargo shorts. I was going through some old photographs, and found one of my of my dad, mowing the lawn. It suddenly hit…"
"The current issue of Forbes magazine has an article about management expenses/loads for retirement accounts. 401(k) matches are certainly not as common as mainstream media would lead people to believe. Whenever I've been offered a…"
"Class thing, and your feelings about risk. Our emergency/unemployment is 6 months' expenses, a pretty typical rule of thumb from financial advisers. We'll never need it instantly, but we sure want it there even when stocks have…"
"No it is not selfish. All Christians should pray for a spouse, and God is pleased that you would come to Him with such a serious and life changing issue. He is much better at finding you someone than a matchmaker, a personals column or some online…"
Hey all,In an effort to both get my feet wet with fountain pens and to improve my handwriting, I purchased a Lamy Safari (I also have the refillable doohicky and a bottle of Quink) as well as the book "Write Now" by Getty/Dubay. The book was recommended in this group in an older discussion, that's why I bought it. While my handwriting isn't too bad by most people's standards, I'd like it to be excellent. I often take notes and when writing as fast as I can, my handwriting quickly becomes hard…See More
