Black and White Diamond Affair... and OCBD

 Last night we had our first mixer with the lovely ladies of Alpha Delta Pi. We have the Black and White Diamond Affair every year and this year I really wanted to make a statement. That statement was... "Look here! Look here at my pants!"
 I really like these embroidered pant. They are what really made me stand apart from everyone else. I got quite a few looks as well as many complements.

 Now I know these are black and white but, I had to have some color in there.

 You can never go wrong with a custom fit OCBD.
I think that Oxford cloth is probably my favorite material, and OCBDs are my favorite kind of shirts. The durability of the shirt lets me know that the shirt will last for many years. These are just a few of my OCBDs and I try to put them into rotation as frequent as possible.

Dressing for a Date

My Lady decided that we needed to go on a nice dinner date, so I thought I would surprise her with getting a bit spiffy.

 Tommy Hilfiger bow tie
 Brooks Brothers watch and watch band
 Custom made Lapel Flower (made by My Lady)
 Gray bucks (not sure who makes them)
 Ray Ban Wayfares

 Ralph Lauren pink OCBD
Brooks Brothers navy Jacket

Needless to say it was a wonderful evening, and I enjoyed going out to dinner with my beautiful Lady. I still need to do my post about Vegas, but I'm still collecting pictures. But hopefully it will be up sometime this week.

New Jackets

I recently purchased a BB jacket from an outlet and the fit is unbelievable! It feel like it was tailored just for me! Not to loose or tight, the sleeve length is perfect, and it fits snugly on my shoulders! So what if I had to spend a bit more, I probably would have spent that much just to get a jacket tailored so I'm okay with it.

I also purchased a Lands End jacket from Broke & Bespoke. He was selling this jacket on his tumbler and I decided to hit him up about it. He told me that others had made him offers earlier, but if for some reason they flaked out that he would let me know. Sure enough they did and I was able to snag this beauty for da cheap-cheap. It does need to be taken up in the sleeves, but other than that it's great. I'm really enjoying growing my jacket collection.

Oh and another thing I have picked where I'm going on my Summer trip. I'm heading out to Las Vegas for a fun trip with My Lady's family. I've been out there before with her family, but this time her extended family will be there as well (I hope I don't embarrass myself... or her). But I'm looking forward to see all the beautiful hotels, all the lights glowing from the strip, and lets not forget the booze! I'll take some pics to post when I return.

Well Dressed for an Afternoon

 So I decided to get dressed up for a trip home to see my family. No one in my family really does this for no reason... but I do. I think it's fun
 I was impressed with myself on this one. I have never been able to put a dimple in my tie (I have also never tried before), but I was pretty excited when I looked up in the mirror to see this. This is a Brooks Brother's tie that I got for Christmas for My Lady.
 Here is a pair of shoes that I thrift-ed a few weeks back. I had never seen wingtips what weren't laced so I got them.
When it got a little hotter, I decided to take off my jacket and roll up my sleeves.

Last Week's Beer

So this was the beer I had last week for Lets Get Beer!
 I went with somewhat of a Guinness theme this week (4 of the 6 were made by Guinness)
 I started off with the Guinness Extra Stout. Now this is one of the darkest beers I have ever had, but it was delicious (I knew Guinness would never let me down... except for that Black Lager.... Boo on that).
 Next I went a little lighter with the Yuengling Porter (Lets face it, anything is lighter than that Extra Stout). I have had their Porter before, but it had been a while so I figured I would get it again. And for the price it's a great beer.
Then I finished the night (didn't drink too much that night) with the New Castle Summer Ale. It was okay... I'm not a big fan of New Castle, but I like Summer Seasonal beers so I figured I'd give it a go. It wasn't bad by any means, but it just wasn't my cup of ... beer.

Long Time, No Post!

I've been bad lately about keeping up with my blog regularly... and for that I apologize.... not back to the post. Since it has been almost 2 weeks, I need to put several bits in this post including Let's Get Beer Wednesday, and the wedding I attended a couple of weekends ago. Lets jump in beer first shall we?

So we found out a couple of weeks ago that the Kroger in Cookeville finally got on the same page as all the other Krogers and made a "you pick six" section. And even though it was at a Kroger we were getting beer, they still had a large selection.

The first beer that I went for was the Sierra Nevada, because I haven't had a beer from them yet that I haven't enjoyed. This beer was no exception! I loved the great flavors of this beer! It had a hint of banana which I found very refreshing.
Next was the Lazy Magnolia Deep South Pale Ale. I wasn't sure if this was going to be very good, but I was wrong. It was very flavorful!
  This was the New Belgium 1554 Black Lager. It was a great dark beer, however I might stay away from drinking to many of those during the Summer months. I think this would be a great Fall and Winter beer.
 This is the Long Board Island Lager. I had never tried this beer before, but it defiantly wasn't for me... compared to all the other beers I had that night, it just kind of fell flat.
 This was the last beer I had for the evening. This is Shiner Ruby Redbird. This is probably going to one of my favorite beers for the rest of my life. I love the taste of ginger, and this beer basically tastes like a alcoholic ginger ale! It was soooo good. The only down side to this beer is that it is a seasonal beer and will most likely go back into hibernation once Fall rolls around. :(
 Here is a pic from the wedding that I attended a few weekends back. Doesn't my Lady look super hot in that dress?! It's hard to see but she made me that red lapel flower. Also I got a chance to wear my new Brooks Brothers. I'm not sure if the slim fit pants are working for me though...
This is just on here because I wanted to say happy freedom day and suck it England! (jk England you know I'm just foolin with you
