Shopping And The Internet – Changing What We Wear And How Much It Costs.

Combatant Gentleman Review: Clothes for the modern office warrior.

I’ve always had more expensive tastes when it comes to things. More expensive might not be the right word. Instead, I value quality. I would much rather pay $50 for a toaster I will never need to replace, rather than paying $20 for a toaster I have to replace ten times. From the cameras and computers I buy, to the clothes I buy, I tend to look for the most affordable, highest quality option. Sometimes this means spending a lot more on something. I’m not afraid to pay more if I will get a higher quality, more refined product as a result. Additionally, I’ve always been one to spend more time doing research to make sure when I do spend the big bucks I don’t regret it. So far I’ve had a pretty good track record. What happens when you apply this to the clothes you wear though?

My problem was in the shape of a three button, ill fitting, padded shoulders, polyester blend suit I got in high school. It served me well for high school but those days are far behind me. Now was time for a new suit. Continue reading

How To Drive Classic Cars Every Day — JALOPNIK ON DRIVE

Video

Yes I’ve been on a bit of a car kick lately. This is most likely due to the fact that it is currently snowing outside (welcome to April in Minnesota).

I have never been to New York City. I’m sure I’ll get there soon and if I ever find myself inside the Classic Car Club I’m sure I’ll be buying a cheap Brooklyn apartment and spending $8,000/year to drive these cars. In the mean time I’ll just keep on watching this video. For those of you around Manhattan here is their website: classiccarclubmanhattan.com

I think I might have to book a flight to New York. Oh and they also have a BMW M2. I’ll post a video about what an M2 is later. I’ll give you a hint. It involves a classic M car and 2002… and I’m not talking about the year.
