I read a whole article about how Bond would need to have his tuxes tailored for that kind of fighting.

It's all in the armholes and the crotch. High armholes, high crotch. Keep that in mind when you pick out your martial arts wardrobe.

There actually are suits made for this, especially in ballistic cloth.
The trick is stretchy cloth that doesn't look it.

There is a columbian clothier that will stand in front of you in a suit and let you open fire.

I prefer something a little more "tactical".

The "Flap" is extra, but so worth it.

I can't wait to see the new one, maybe get the chance to hobble up there later today. I just finished the last bit for a BRAF project I've been on, now we're off to the Ferry Building to hit a few of our Farmer's Market shops (no big market today, but the meat market, cowgirl creamery, and acme bread are all up) and maybe a dive bar...

Idiots panic when they see camo these days.
Look at the idiocy about the theater crazy and his "tactical" clothing, none of which would block a girl scout cookie.

Saddles up to ECM. How's everyone doing today?

My hands are falling off from weaving and sewing kevlar, I've been up all night doing it to get an order out. Making enough fire hula hoops to equip an entire army...I wonder where they plan to invade. I always keep an oven mitt on me just in case, I thought I may have smelt herring wafting by from the distance.

I think I fell off the chair when Bond appeared in this particular linen suit and that white shirt.
Alas...
Bond wears dark brown suede 2-eyelet derby shoes and commits the faux pas of wearing a black leather belt with brown shoes.

This is my favorite tactical product:

tactical_can.jpg


It is advertised to hold bubble wrap, measuring tape, canned food. But the real reason is to hold two cans of dip... duh. The next assault weapons ban should include a dip can holder attachment on the list of naughty features.

I am not sure that the pajamas are really tactical because I don't know where you would put your dip can. Maybe if they had some webbing somewhere - perhaps on the footies, then you could attach the appropriate pouch. These things are important.

Lurking after a fine dinner hosted by my Daughter and son in law in honor of their son and his lady back from Washington state and leaving soon for a trip to Costa Rica and Peru for a month. Good to be young! Got my grandson coming out to play some tennis with us on Thursday morning. Tennis on Thanksgiving morning is a tradition in our house. In the tradition of the Pilgrims. Great tennis players, the Pilgrims. Goes well with the turkey.

Hope you get to do some holiday cooking MDF. I just made a great Hungarian Goulash that is to die for. Hadn't done any cooking for qquite some time other than BBQ which really doesn't count. Felt good to do it and felt better to eat it!

Hope your toe heals up quickly, Trilo. So many have stopped by since my last visit I must simply wave a big hug and hi to you all.

Except a special (((LF)))

Tuxedos, and suits for that matter, are only made for standing around with a martini in your hand. No action required. In fact, action should be avoided since a martini glass is designed to be easily spilled.

I flicked on the Home Shopping Network as a joke and found them marketing a baseball cap with LED lights. :shock:

Bwahahahahahaha Savannah when the Home Shopping Network starts monitoring your thought waves it's time to put on your tin-foil hat. 8)

*starts ECM*

Let's have some coffee. I have got my first batch of baked goodies out of the oven already. Now I can go rub some sage and scrape the peel off a lemon. 8) Very therapeutic.

Mmmm, coffee.

I'm not hosting Turkey Day, so I get to cook anything I want. I'm thinking booze.

MyLarry broke a bone in his hand a week ago, been working the whole time. Now it is in a splint, he can't drive for at least a week, and is complaining a great deal. I'm gonna murderize him. I'm thinking booze.

AntiM, delicious beverages of an adult nature are an important part of any holiday meal. 8)

Sorry about Larry's hand. :( Guess he's not going to be washing up afterwards. I vote for pizza, chinese, or any food that comes to your door ready-to-eat from the carton.

I am FINALLY getting my cook-at-home-day :D :D :D half of one anyway, I have the Pirate Boom Box of Ellorum cranking out a Bootie Mash-Up Party and I am happy as can be. :D :D :D

If I am dreaming :shock: DON'T WAKE ME UP.

Hi MDF, Anti M and DR. Happy that you are the Happy Cooker, MDF. Anti M, spare My Larry, he's a good guy, bum hand and all. Sounds like an eating orgy to me DR. Turkeys beware. We are going to a daughter's house to do the bird, so no cooking for us, just a lot of tennis and my Open Studio Pottery Sale in the afternoons over the weekend.

Have a great one kiddies!

I look like an idiot in most hats . . . but I simply found it intensely creepy (and slightly embarrassing) that the Home Shopping Network had something I thought was neat. :lol:

Good Morning, All.

I'm out of coffee here at work and am drinking instant vanilla St4rbucks that someone gave me at the Burn. It's not bad.

Celebrate the holidays with freshly minted Beaujolais Nouveau, a red wine that is made from the grapes from this very year. Since it isn't aged, it's got a boldly fruity flavor.

Which reminds me.... (*says the quiet fellow at the shadowy table in the back*).... I'm still drinking from a fine stainless-steel pocket-flask someone gave me at the Burn. It was full of Bourbon and so long as it still has some of the original content I can pretend I'm still in BRC. :D
