StyeForum Member Mafoofan Settles 1000 Year Old Debate on Truth in AestheticsNEW YORK CITY — Numerous sources confirmed Monday that a newly published forum post by StyleForum member Mafoofan finally and categorically settled a 1,000 year old debate on truth in aesthetics. "Beauty is about contrast and, also, not standing out," wrote the runner-up in Esquire's Best Dressed Real Man in America contest. "There are higher truths in aesthetics and they flow from these five...
Yes. Nothing crazy, violent, or even harmful. Just general mischief.I do have some crazy stories that came out of the experience though, including being in a 100mph+ car chase with a truckload of white skinheads wanting to kill me. But I'll save that for when we meet.

Fairly casual. Hoping to get something I can wear with dark grey trousers, white shirt, and some kind of very casual top coat. Or a Schneider overcoat I bought from NMWA.Obviously, the cheaper the better, but I'd like to spend no more than $750 or so.Also, am I wrong for not liking a lot of designer brand shoes cause they're made from corrected grain leather?
