Great shoes, really interesting look. But to me tassels are to shoes what black is to suits for most of you guys--a big HELL NO!

The stores are not bothering to train their sales people and the sales people have little to no way to find out the answers to questions like the one you asked. If a sales person shows even the slightest bit of knowledge about such things they are quickly promoted off the floor or they move on to better stores. Agreed. Management...

I wear everything. If I buy something a little unconventional or really dressy my wife says; "Why are you buying that, you'll never wear it." I then HAVE to wear it, and often.
Here's the adjectives and descriptors I pulled from the OP: Confidence, strength, and class; Knows the difference between right and wrong and will make the right decision regardless of what others around him (her?) may think; Do not want to be known as conceited, arrogant, or full or themselves; Strength, honor, character; Not rude and dirty; Considers other men, and women, his(her?) best friends; Global, socially aware, confident, and compassionate.

For pants I steam and touch up with an iron between wearings, but eventually then take them to the cleaners for a really good clean and press. I always do my own shirts. I don't want a commercial laundry beating my shirts to death. I used to have them do my cheaper ones, but no more. Even my cheap ones are an investment. I can wear a shirt twice if I steam it between wearings then touch it up with the iron. After the second wearing I presoak, hand wash, then...
Favorite: Linen square-cut shirt, MTM in Thailand last trip. Tommy Bahama linen shorts. Rockport flip-flops or Taryn Rose boat shoes, no socks (and GASP... I don't own a boat!) Sacramento weather requires dressing down when you're out and about-- 117 degrees yesterday.

In cooler weather I steam, then hang to air out, & can then get 2 wearings. I also presoak, then using shorter wash...
