    Is this jacket too short? I'm trying to decide on keeping it, and the only thing holding me back is I feel like it should be an inch or two longer.

    Looking for the brand of hoodie worn by Jason Statham in the movie The Meg when he arrives on Mana One... any suggestion where to look?

    My question is for those of you who shave with DE (or similar) razors. What do you do with the used blades afterward? I know some razor brands come in packages that have a little disposal slot on the underside. The brand I've purchased doesn't seem to have that. I ended up just ordering a hazardous sharps disposal container online. I wonder if I'm missing something obvious? How else do you dispose of your used razor blades?
    I've shaved with double-edged razor for several years. I usually buy a 100 pack of Feathers, they have the little safety dealy, but I realize after your post that I'm just throwing the whole thing away.

    This page has some info about a mail-in service.

    I admire you guys for your ingenuity but for $4 (they make ones for $2) and a capacity of 100 blades I'll splurge for the blade disposal case.

    I have been using the plastic containers/holders that came with my blades. As you mentioned though you don't have that option and I am on my last plastic container. My plan is to go with an aluminum can that was destine for the recycling. Once full, I'll seal up the top so the blades can't get out. Won't look pretty, but will be functional.

    I put them in a steel can that is destined for recycling, then bend the top of the can over and smash it flat so the blades can’t get out. Then the whole thing goes in the recycling bin.

    The obvious option is to just buy a house with one of these https://isarchitecture.com/seen-arou...ade-bank-slot/

    While I don't shave with a double-edge razor, for projects I have a couple of utility knives that use utility razor blades. For disposal I sandwich the used blade between scrap cardboard and then heavily tape with masking tape and place in the trash. I have also seen where an empty Altoids mint tin works perfectly for disposal of double-edge blades. When full, wrap in tape and place in the trash.

    Thanks... I do tend to overthink... but, in this particular instance, I might be too far down the obsession/rabbit hole.

I think if I was wearing tan pants I’d be fine with a buttoned down, but the black pants (which you can’t see here, sorry) are considerably more formal, linen blend jacket notwithstanding

    Red Fleece from Brooks Brothers is decent. I like their button downs better than the regular Brooks Brothers line for the reasons people complain about them in online reviews: they are slim cut and they don't have non-iron treatment. The one real downside imo is if your arms are longer than average proportions, you may not be able to get a good fit.

    Ledbury is also great as mentioned above. The two things I especially like about Ledbury is I've never had to use the extra buttons for one coming off or chipping and the button stance is how all OCBDs should be. A risk is if you do buy them used, someone may have cooked the shirt in a dryer which is especially bad for whatever reason with these shirts. I'd recommend lighter colors as well since these shirts seem to last forever with the only obvious wear being color fading on the ends of the cuffs without fraying.
