polo polos Men dressing badly

Every morning, millions of American men manage to get dressed without embarrassing themselves. Then there are the rest, like the guy a few weeks ago who was walking down Michigan Avenue not jogging or performing any kind of street routine wearing a blue velour sweat suit with white piping. Guys like him demonstrate the unfortunate fact that once their mothers stop dressing them, many men don’t really know how to take it from there. Clearly, some basic rules need to be re established. With the help of fashion experts and ordinary Chicagoans, Q sources have identified five of the worst, and most common, men’s fashion and grooming mistakes. Guys, if you’re doing any of the following, resolve to stop it. Now.

1. The mistake: Grown men wearing sports jerseys, especially with the names and numbers of star players (Michael Jordan, Brian Urlacher, etc.).

The complaints: “It’s an immediate indicator that they stopped all growth personal, mental, emotional and spiritual when they graduated from high school,” says Chicagoan Bridget Rowley Sarno.

“It’s too juvenile too This is my hero! This is my team! Rah rah rah!’ ” agrees Joseph DeAcetis, fashion director for Playboy magazine.

Solutions: If you want to get into your team in a big way, wear the replica of your favorite athlete’s jersey while attending the game in which he’s playing. Or while watching it on television in the privacy of your own home.

Exceptions: If you are under 30 you can wear the jersey along with baggy pants, jewelry, etc. as part of a consistent hip hop statement. (If, however, you are over 30 yo, homes, hang it up. Literally.) And if you are Brian Urlacher himself, you can wear anything you please.

2. The mistake: Mismatching casual clothes with dress clothes (such as wearing golf shirts as dress shirts, wearing polo shirts with sport coats, wearing shirts that have more than one pocket with a tie).

The complaints: “I’ve seen the VP of merchandising at Polo Menswear pull it off [the polo shirt/blazer combination], but not many others,” says Deborah Christiansen, a professor in the apparel merchandising and fashion design department at Indiana University in Bloomington.

Arlington Heights resident Jennifer Schmidt makes a plea for months to come: “For God’s sake, stop wearing the weekend uniform,
men polos Men dressing badly
‘ ” she laments of the combination of golf shirts, ill fitting khakis and gym shoes that is omnipresent from May through September.

“Life is not a back yard barbecue,” adds Chicagoan Karen Yates.

Solutions: Don’t wear a tie with anything other than a dress shirt, no matter how many Gap ads you see to the contrary. If you’re going to embrace the casual for all occasions look, at least wear clothes from the same family. For example, it’s possible to make the polo/jacket combination work, but the blazer must have a relaxed cut, and the shirt “shouldn’t be a waffle weave, it should be a very thin cotton, shiny, more evening or more elegant” than one you’d go to the park in,” says DeAcetis.

Whatever you do, if you’re at all overweight, don’t wear polo and T shirts that cling so tightly your girth makes them quiver like Jell O. Also, admit what your waist size really is and buy pants accordingly, so that the pleats of trousers aren’t pulled flat.

Exception: You can mismatch shoes, pants, shirts and sport coats if you are a clown.

3. The mistake: Wearing a cell phone attached to a belt, as if it were a gun in a holster. guy on 24 7 call. They’re the 21st Century equivalent of a pocket protector,” says Oak Park resident Lynn Olson.

“It’s insulting, it’s in your face. What it says to another person is, ‘I’m that rude that I will talk to someone in front of you,’ ” adds DeAcetis.

Solutions: Put it in the pocket of your sport coat or in your briefcase. Or buy a stylish shoulder bag for keeping your cell phone, PDA, laptop, portable CD player, etc. If you’re at a party or a restaurant, leave it in the car and concentrate on talking to the people with you. guy (or some other sort of technician, physician or law enforcement official) on call. You also can wear it if your wife is pregnant and could go into labor at any minute.

4. The mistake: Futile attempts at hair loss compensation.

The complaints: “My pet peeves? The comb over, its Baby Boomer equivalent the bald dome with a ponytail and the African American spin, the Bozo fro,” says a Chicagoan we’ll call Ella (lest her friends know she’s talking about them).

Solutions: “When a man’s hair is receding, he’s got to let it go,” insists DeAcetis.

“Any balding man who keeps his hair short and meticulously groomed is making a [strong] statement about how comfortable he is with his own looks. Confidence is the ultimate aphrodisiac!

” declares Ella.

July 23, 1939 October 26, 2017Larry was born in Ft. Worth, Texas to Lawrence and Mabel Stothoff. His parents moved to California when he was two years old. They settled in Long Beach, where he attended school, graduating from Polytechnic High School in 1957. He was involved in many swimming activities, winning many medals. He was a member of the fraternity Comus.

Larry met the love of his life Suzanne Frett, where they were together and married for 60 years.

He worked in the tire business in Long Beach for several years before he was recruited to Oregon by Les Schwab himself. After working for him for some time, he and Suzy decided to stay in Albany rather than move again to raise their five children. He then went to work for Tele Dyne Wah Chang, where he retired after 29 years.

He was very involved in all his children’s activities; football, basketball, wrestling, cheerleading, cross country and track. He loved his grandchildren, finding joy after retirement volunteering at Clover Ridge School, where all called him Grandpa. He enjoyed visiting with the volunteers and the people at St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen, where Suzy was the director for twenty years.

He was a true history buff, interested especially in anything that had to do with World War II.

He loved Central Oregon. He and Suzy built their retirement home ten years ago at Crooked River Ranch.

Larry passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer’s with his loving family by his side.

He is survived by wife, Suzy; sons Dexter and Dennis; daughters Sandi (Justin) Gordon and Sue Sue (Mark) Bangs; grandchildren, Dusten, Dain, Nicole, Sydney, Isabella, Sam, Scotty and Suzi; great grandchildren, Hayli, Cameron and Isaac; and friends Kevin Bryne and Tim Ysen, who were like sons to him.

He was preceded in death by son Scott; and grandson, Tanner.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Memory Care Center for their kindness and loving care given to Larry and our family.

At his request, there will be no service. There will be a celebration of life next summer with family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen or to hospice.

We will miss you husband, Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa.

July 28, 1952 November 12, 2017Jeff Arthur, 65,
plain polo t shirts Memorial Gallery Obituaries November 2017
passed away November 12 surrounded by loved ones.

He was born in South Bend, Indiana to Mary Jane and James W. Arthur.

He attended Purdue University and received his Bachelors in Mathematics, and Masters and Doctorate in Operations Research. He then shared his knowledge and passion as a professor in the Statistics Department at Oregon State University from 1977 through 2011.

Jeff spent his retirement traveling the world with his wife Becky and enjoying life to the fullest. He especially enjoyed food and the arts; most of all, he loved experiencing them with family and friends.

He is survived by his wife Becky; son Kyle; daughter in law Emily; stepchildren Ellie and Seth; grandsons Julian and Jason; and brothers Mike and Robert.

July 3, 1935 November 16, 2017Janet Lee Martin, 82, of Albany, passed away Thursday at the Samaritan Evergreen Hospice House.

Janet was born in Salix, Iowa to Edgar and Leora (McKenna) Bouvia. They moved to Coquille in 1940 and then Albany where Janet attended Central School.

She married Donald Crocker on September 21, 1950. They later divorced.

On May 9, 1958 she married her soul mate, Emil Curtis Martin in Stevenson, Washington.

Janet was a waitress for many years, retiring from the Herford Steer after 23 years.

She also enjoyed bowling, dancing, keno, and spending time at the casino. Most of all, Janet loved her family. She never missed a grandkid’s sporting event or birthday card.

Janet is survived by her children, Elaine Farvour and husband Robert of Kelso, Washington, Cheri Crocker and companion, Mark Ramsdell of Albany, Peggy Grice and husband Jim of Albany, Traci Fry and husband Robert of Scio, and Amanda Wyninegar of San Antonio, Texas; 12 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren; and three great great grandchildren.

polo shirts on sale Melynk sure knows how to spoil a party

They could have expressed to Melnyk just how Ottawa feels about the pre mediated stunt he pulled on Friday night, when he took the opportunity of an alumni game in front of the Parliament buildings to perform an old Beatles song.

The Fool on the Hill.

The National Hockey League top brass was in full damage control on Saturday, suggesting to Postmedia that perhaps the message was misheard or misinterpreted. But everybody knows what Melnyk said. They read it and watched the replays leading Sports Centre the next morning.

Threatening to move the Senators if attendance doesn improve is not only a bully tactic, but really poor form.

And, doing it when he did, terrible timing.

Booming big businesses like the NFL and NHL are, as one wise man put it on Saturday, driven and PR wise. And Melnyk rant was a PR nightmare.

He couldn have at least waited until Monday to issue his soft ultimatum?

Instead, the league threw a big beautiful party, making Melnyk its co host, and he took a plop in the middle of the dance floor.

Speaking volumes was the wildly popular hashtag on social media: Melnykout.

Even famous ESPN sports commentator Keith Olbermann chimed in on Twitter.

before the outdoor game. Celebrating the league 100th Anniversary. That he hosting. He threatens to move the team. That is not a bright man, even for an owner. NHL will not lose the capital of Canada, especially when it has a toehold on a magnificently spectacular piece of property for a new area in the city, because of an owner it widely believed the league does not want in its fraternity anymore. More likely, it will find a way to lose him.

The Senators are not moving anywhere except LaBreton. The deal will get done with or without Melnyk. And most of the betting is on the latter.

His last play was an error.

It also reeked of desperation, sounding a lot like it was coming from a man who doesn have the capital to fund the development of a new arena on prime real estate, can get the financing and can find a partner.

Again we ask, what is Erik Karlsson thinking of all this?

Very soon the Senators captain will have to make a decision on his future. Does Karlsson stay in Ottawa, a city he loves and with a team with which he would like to spend his entire career? Why would he choose to remain with a franchise that under a heavy cloud of uncertainly created by an owner who is threatening to extend his next round of cuts to player salaries and relocate?

Would it make more sense for Karlsson to tell the Senators they better trade him, because he out of here via free agency 19 months if they don you were in his shoes, wouldn you want a more settled option than Ottawa, at least in its present form?

If you were in his shoes, wouldn you ask your best friend for some advice? In Karlsson case, it the highly respected Daniel Alfredsson, a guy who has walked away from the organization under its current regime not once, but twice?

Yeah, it too bad there was no spotlight put on the Senators owner Saturday night.

STARTS AND STOPS: You know the shot Erik Karlsson took off the ankle with a little over seven minutes left in the first period stung more in the cold than it would in an indoor game. You could tell by the look on his face. From as far back as I sat,
polo shirts customized Melynk sure knows how to spoil a party
in the jerseys they wore, it looked like a game between the Ottawa 67 and the Toronto Maple Leafs. At $15 and $20, tickets are about a few hundred cheaper than they were Saturday. Word is 11,000 have already been sold Overheard: Habs GM Marc Bergevin went to Gary Bettman box in the first period, but the NHL commissioner wasn there because he was sitting with the prime minister.

BETWEEN PERIODS: The CF 18s that zoomed over TD Place after the national anthem were piloted by Lt Col Tim Woods and Captain Ben Hamilton, who from Stittsville. Word is they were travelling at a speed of 300 knots (unless they were late arriving, in which case they were pushed to 420 knots, and they had to be 500 feet higher than the tallest building in the area. The west end zone condo is 465 feet. The mini zambonis were made for the occasion, because the ice couldn handle the weight of regular size. Yes, I have a friend that is a fountain of information.

POINT BLANK: Many players made sure they were covered against the conditions. wear the neck warmer for sure, with the balaclava on it, because I find your neck gets real cold when you skating, Dion Phaneuf said before the game. I expected to see him with a piece of greek dessert. The prime ministers prepping for their between periods race wore stoic looks when they were greeted by Don Cherry. The save Price made off Matt Duchene late in the second period was without doubt the best of the season at TD Place. It ranks right up there with the top stops at all venues this season. Guy Boucher was using all four lines, as he is wont to do, but he was also instructing players to take shorter shifts than usual. you stay activated, and the next guy stays activated, he said before the game. is cold air you breathing. That different. I would say of all the things that are different, in that type of game, from what I hear that the hardest thing to get accustomed to. Play hard and having to breathe the cold air, and keep going with stamina. That certainly one of the things we have to focus on. I THINK I THUNK: When someone says don bluff is that not a waste of breath? Because if he was bluffing, he wouldn say so, or the whole bluffing thing would lose its effect, right? Now that it is over, can we say good riddance to outdoor hockey? Everybody prefers the game indoors, from players, to fans, to the media. OK,
polo shirts customized Melynk sure knows how to spoil a party
maybe not all fans. What it really is a good drinking game.

First Lady Melania Trump debuted the peak in flood fashion Tuesday as she and President Trump headed to Texas to survey damage from Hurricane Harvey.

The First Lady was snapped stepping out of the White House in 4 inch stiletto heels, a questionable choice for visiting an area ravaged with record breaking flooding. She matched the heels with high water black pants and completed the look with aviators and an Army green bomber jacket.

Twitter users were baffled by the choice in shoewear and wasted no time criticizing the First Lady for forgoing rain boots or even tennis shoes. dispatching additional National Guard troops to Texas

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania head to Texas to survey Harvey Flood Damage, but the First Lady’s footwear is under fire.

“Not an expert, but are stiletto heels the best footwear for a disaster zone?” comedian Michael Ian Black wrote.

“If Michelle Obama had worn 6 inch stiletto Louboutin’s to a disaster site, Tucker Carlson’s head would have literally exploded,” Lara Cohen said. Baffling insensitive.

They are the guests of high profile Democrats including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and potential 2020 presidential candidates including New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and California Sen. Kamala Harris.

Trump ended Obama era protections for such immigrants.

He says if he could unite the country, he would consider it a great achievement.

The lunch is an annual White House tradition ahead of the president’s State of the Union address.

Fox News host Bret Baier said on the “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” that the lunch menu featured smoked tomato soup, thyme roasted chicken and orange merengue pudding. Baier says the rest of the lunch was off the record.

Four of the Supreme Court’s nine justices are expected to attend the State of the Union address.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan and Neil Gorsuch are expected at the speech. Roberts, Breyer and Kagan regularly attend, as do justices appointed by the president who is speaking. Trump nominated Gorsuch a year ago.

Among the justices who will not be in the audience,
big and tall polos Melania Trump promotes State of the Union guests
Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito haven’t attended a State of the Union speech in years. Alito last went in 2010, when he was captured on camera mouthing the words “not true” in response to President Barack Obama’s criticism of the court’s then new ruling in the Citizens United campaign finance case.

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s long standing travel plans have him in California.

President Donald Trump’s top economic and national security advisers help with his State of the Union address. McMaster and economic adviser Gary Cohn contributed to the speech Trump plans to deliver Tuesday night at the Capitol.

The official stressed that the speech is the president’s and that Trump has spent months giving his aides “tidbits” on lines he wants to use.

The White House has said Trump will use the speech to discuss economy and national security, as well as trade, immigration and infrastructure.

President Donald Trump will herald a robust economy and push for bipartisan congressional action on immigration in Tuesday’s State of the Union address.

The speech marks the ceremonial kickoff of Trump’s second year in office and is traditionally a president’s biggest platform to speak to the nation. However, Trump has redefined presidential communications with his high octane, filter free Twitter account and there’s no guarantee that the carefully crafted speech will resonate beyond his next tweet.

White House officials are hopeful the president can use the prime time address to Congress and millions of Americans watching at home to take credit for a soaring economy. Trump argues that the tax overhaul he signed into law late last year has boosted business confidence and will lead companies to reinvest in the United States.

The story of that first response, and what a single 12 man team from Fort Campbell’s 5th Special Forces Group did in northern Afghanistan on horseback will be among the season biggest Hollywood releases in 12 Strong, which stars Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Pe and Elsa Pataky.

The film by Jerry Bruckheimer, based on the book Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton, was screened Sunday for a theater full of current and former members of that 12 man team and others in America most elite Army units based here.

The film debuts in theaters Friday.

Almost all of the troops ordered into Afghanistan in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 came from Fort Campbell, including helicopter pilots from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.

Operational Detachment Alpha 595 one of several sent to Afghanistan in the days following 9/11 was given one two part mission: Work with Afghan forces and destroy the Taliban regime, a strategy still being perfected on a larger scale today.

These 12 solders were outnumbered by the Taliban as they worked with Afghan rebels.

Mulholland, played by William Fichtner, is one of the few whose names weren changed for the film.

Andy Marchal was one of those men on that mission. He doesn consider it any different than the other classified missions he was a part of during his 20 year career.
