This biblical reference almost always gets used on Internet blogs when someone's behavior is discussed. It's not exactly the most sophisticated position. Clearly, there should never be any judgments made in our society, right? I'd love to hear a theory about how this would be possible,...

(and knowing wall st, she's done.) she may not meet SF's high standards of intellectual rigor but she's done a lot better than most. just keep...

A tie without a jacket does not...
Unlike many other occupations, what you wear is entirely up to you. I've taught at various locations in the U.S. (west coast, east coast, south), and I'd say that the formality varies somewhat according to the region. The kind of class you're teaching matters, too, I'd say. A professor in a professional school (say law) is more likely to wear a SC than a Humanities professor. Of course, most everyone is casual these days. I always wear a sportcoat and tie (typically,...
Quote: Originally Posted by starsfan18 I Right now, I have two suits - the Jos A Bank navy, and a HF 2 button in a solid dark gray (wouldn't quite call it charcoal) that I purchased from Gilt. I don't wear a suit often except for 3-4 times a year for business and the odd funeral. It doesn't seem as though you need a new suit, unless you're going to start wearing them more often.

The idea that most of these men are "trading up" when they get trophy wives is laughable, though. On the other hand, most of the time they get exactly what they deserve. In any case, TC makes an interesting point. I don't know how long the OP has been dating the woman in...
Quote: Originally Posted by Fuuma They have a point but the problem is they feel their own position is a transparent one and has no bearing on their children's choices. That is like fucking stoopid. Well stated. The parents don't seem to understand that there is no such thing as not making "choices" for your children.
