    [MENTION=13239]kongmw[/MENTION] I've been very tempted by this pair of loafers lately as well. I'm not very experienced with their lasts though. How would you say these fit, pretty TTS or a bit on the narrow or wide side?

    I'm no expert on leather quality but these feel pretty soft and supple. Been wearing them around the apartment for the past hour to break them in a bit. No hot spots or excessive rubbing so far. So I say go for it! lol

    Edit: also I have high instep so it's a bit tight across the top but I kind of expect that on most slip-on/loafers anyway.

    Bob Mould = awesome! I saw him with Sugar many years ago now. It was like a wall of sound hitting me. Wicked show.

    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.....

    Really wanted an 80d, but the difference between them isn't THAT major, at least for my intended use. This uses the same processor and sensor so I highly doubt I'll see a quality difference.

    I've always been really impressed with what the Rebel line can do, particularly with prime lens or L glass (L has never been in my budget).

    All of these are examples from the original Rebel (so 6.3 megapixel sensor) and an $85 50 1.8 or the slightly more expensive 85 1.8 shot wide open, with no flash, in nightclub light.

    Welp. I’ve finally squatted, deadlifted, cleaned, and snatched out of all my suit trousers and other dress trousers. Sigh. A few weeks ago I bought several pairs of inexpensive Goodfellow chinos that I’ve been wearing with jackets to work. But I can’t exactly wear chinos for trials or in the higher courts where I occasionally practice so I finally sucked it up and ordered new wool trousers and suits. One suit from Suitsupply, two from Spier & Mackay, and six total pairs of odd trousers from S&M and Lands’ End. Fortunately almost all my odd jackets still fit (and actually fit better than they ever did before) and a number of my current suit jackets are passable as odd jackets. I think I’ll be set for a while once the new stuff arrives.

    Who knew working out could get so expensive?
    I have two sets of suits and odd pants -- (1) when I'm skinnier (toned up but not lifting heavy) and (2) when I'm thicker (either lifting heavy/getting sized or slacking enough that I grow around waist). It's not ideal but I won't be tossing either set out anytime soon...

    It seems like Samuelsohn is planning a line of Italian made shirts, because the current Hickey Freeman warehouse sale had a table of of samples, all mediums or 15.5, for $19.95 each. They fit me perfectly. On Wednesday I bought four. Today I went back and (so help me) bought nine more. I figure I should be set for a good many years....
