What would you suggest for taller men? My hubby is 6’4″ and long waisted. His tie is nowhere near his belt. If we play with the length so that the tie falls in the right place it messes up the knot because a skinny part of the tie is being used to make the knot. I’d say the best we’ve been able to do has his tie about 3-4 inches above the top of his belt. I think it looks ridiculous but he really doesn’t have an option when he is in a situation where a tie is required. I always try to get him to keep his jacket closed but he is not the button up type so it usually ends up open or off .
The Latin verb discurrere meant "to run about", and from this word we get our word discursive , which often means rambling about over a wide range of topics. A discursive writing style generally isn't encouraged by writing teachers. But some of the great 19th-century writers, such as Charles Lamb and Thomas de Quincey, show that the discursive essay, especially when gracefully written and somewhat personal in tone, can be a pleasure to read. And the man often called the inventor of the essay, the great Michel de Montaigne, might touch on dozens of different topics in the course of a long discursive essay.
One of the best-known examples of racism is the “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” scenario where parents are scandalized about their child marrying someone of a different race. Pew has done some good work on this and found that only 23% of conservatives and 1% (!) of liberals admit they would be upset in this situation. But Pew also asked how parents would feel about their child marrying someone of a different political party . Now 30% of conservatives and 23% of liberals would get upset. Average them out, and you go from 12% upsetness rate for race to 27% upsetness rate for party – more than double. Yeah, people do lie to pollsters, but a picture is starting to come together here.
