    I have my first felony trial (i.e. first trial in big kid court) coming in a couple weeks and decided I should probably own some decent black dress shoes... picked up a pair of AE wingtips from Zappos on sale for $190. Hopefully they work out.

    Nice!!

    I'm a cheapskate so I just wear my Chuck Taylors. Those are seksi tho.

    Picked up some SeaVees this week. They came in just in time for the hot weekend.

    Just picked up the new BR flyweight jeans. Pretty impressed so far. They're as comfortable as the rapid movement, but surprisingly light/thin for jeans. They also seem to be available in more colors than BR's normal jeans - I'm definitely going to snag another pair or two as soon as they go on sale.

    Yes--I have the jacket--I wore it out to a casual thing near the beach last night. I really like it a lot for summer. Enjoy!

    I should have iterated that those are my next two CAMERA related purchases, as I just bought a tomahawk last night for next year's Rave Hajj (going to do 2-3 nights in Yellowstone).

I run with a 24-70L and a 70-200L as of a couple years ago; I will say that I do wish the 70-200 had more range, especially now that I've lost the extra zoom from a crop sensor. Either way, you can't go wrong with that kit. Enjoy!
    Those are likely my next two purchases, in that order--24-70 and then 70-200 (the f/4 IS version). MAYYYYYYBE a battery grip but probably just snag one of the off-brand ones on Amazon.

    Of course the 17-55 f/2.8 sure is tempting as well.....and a lot cheaper than the 24-70. Not L glass, but honestly with current sensors, I don't know that it's absolutely necessary.

    That's downright impressive there.

    I have the 50mm 1.8 (the latest with the STM focus); that's what took all the photos I posted from my "rave hajj" thread in the OT section. Love that lens. Looking at maybe the 24mm pancake next to get some wider-angle shots of the ferrets and such. I think for next year I may make the investment in the 24-70L and possibly a 70-200L on top. Those should come in VERY handy indeed when we get to yellowstone.....

But she has started to wonder if the Fenix might have some additional features that her older one doesn't have.

    Have you been wearing the Garmin as a daily watch? Or do you only break it out for workouts?
    I just received it the other day. Haven't had a chance to put it through the paces yet, starting a new training cycle next week. So far it is at 78% battery at 7pm tonight 6/14, yesterday 6/13 at 7am it was 88%. Just using it as regular. Needed to sync to gps manually to get the correct sunset/sunrise. Haven't connected to Wifi yet. I am wearing it 24/7 so far as a daily watch. Fits under a sportcoat fine, but it is a little large under dress shirt sleeves, but during the summer I am able to wear polos more (work in IT https://putthison.com/q-and-answer-d...t-crowd-jakes/).

    I viewed these sources first:

    https://the5krunner.com/2018/06/09/f...nix-5x-review/ Decided the new prices would be a little high...same price, I might wait for the 5 plus (but I prefer the looks of the 5x vs what was shown, since pulled)

    Decided to stay away from the current 5 and 5S https://the5krunner.com/2018/01/24/g...-gps-accuracy/

    Made a couple of recent pickups from S&M and Ebay. Got the green cotton sportcoat from S&M a few weeks ago and more recently picked up a couple of their new linen trousers as well as their new brown slub. Picked up a SuSu Havana jacket on ebay from driftingawaynet during the 20% off sale as well.

    Not stylish, but recently picked up the Garmin Fenix 5x during a sale. My wrists are only 165mm, but the watch doesn't feel too big/heavy. I wanted the maps and working ant+ sensors
