yep that would be luxottica, they make probably 90% of the world's sunglasses.

When you say "upper end" you imply high price and quality. And while the price of a bottle cologne from a designer like Gucci or Chanel, ~$100, could be considered high when compared to a non-designer labeled product, a. it's not high relative to the price of other available options (see above), and b. not high quality. 90% of fragrances come from licensing agreements with ~5 mass-perfumers. So if you buy a bottle of Chanel perfume and a bottle of Louis Vuitton, its entirely possible that the fragrances were created by the same team of people. I deem the above true "upper end" fragrances because they have that price-point, and also that true individual, refined scent from an individual perfumer with a unique, distinct style. (That then opens up another entire discussion entirely about how you measure the "quality" of a fragrance, and how you weight the importance of the top middle and low notes, longevity, how well it turns the ladies on etc etc)

Probably a rather dumb question, but does anybody have suggestions for summer suits? I'm currently interviewing for a job that would start in June and would require a suit every day. I often hear about linen suits for summer, but the people telling me that wear suits every day... not just in a business setting.

If I was indoors all day, I wouldn't care at all. But I'll be spending a lot of time outdoors and would like something that doesn't make me want to hang myself.

Just look on GQs website for **** like that I'm sure they have like 874 articles about different suits for different times (seasons/occasions).

Most of the advice on there can be trusted, but I've read some lame **** on there too like one article saying to use a paper clip as a tie clip.

I mean do whatever you think is cool, but they have tons of articles about suits all the time, ranging from advice to just providing information like you're looking for.

Or even just google light weight suits for summer. Or better yet, go to a suit store and ask a professional suit salesman and have him plan to tailor it for you, if there's a nice place to buy suits around you this is the best option.

Very rarely buy fragrances based on initial scent rather the potential for the lingering essence on clothes

I've tried a few of the boutique fragrances in the past but nothing ever tickled my fancy most I've tried almost seemed to me to be overly complicated

Current lineup consists of Armami Code, Mania, Lacoste White, Givenchy Play, Chanel blue

All fairly mild understated scents but have great lingering smell on clothes and jackets

looks good dawg. would've slimmed up the legs below the knee a bit but thats just me.

rolled to brooks bros today and copped a polo in this dope light blue color, I love brooks polos the most because I think the lamb logo is the coolest haha. **** having a polo playing guy on you or some ****.

actually looks like the upper arms should be slimmed up too but that gets expensive

I can't slim the pants, my thighs are big (so is my entire legs and they are only getting larger) so they'd end up being too tight.

I paid $60 or something so I'm pretty happy.
