    The annual Beloit College Mindset list (which I always look at since I teach in a college) has been making me feel old for years. Here's the latest version:

    Thanks--those look like exactly what I like. Too bad all my favorite show breeches are discontinued!

    Well, I hope you find a replacement you're happy with.

    For me, it's not a matter of figure so much as the way the breeches look. I think a regular rise keeps the shirt tucked in better and just...
