The key to sartorial happiness is to dress only for yourself.
Although your 100% right, sometime you can't help but to notice someone else's shortcomings. Its really like a car wreck or something so ugly, you can't help but to stare at it or not being able to get your mind off of it.

SF has also affected my girlfriend. Even though she doesn't read, she sometimes looks at the WAYWN thread with me and comments. She said that she cannot believe how poorly her co-workers and managers are dressed (this is at a very large "Bank Holding Company" too). When she's in meetings she can't help but notice the horribly ill fitting suits, poorly tied ties, and ugly loafers. She's happy I've learned so much from SF and encourages my sartorial hobby
I've also blown more money on clothing in the last 6 months than I have in all my previous years put together!
OMG dude, you've described my boss to a tee. He is the very same way...only difference, he does it with jeans and it skeeves me out all the time. I have to fight myself daily not to say something and it doesn't help matters that I come in all kinds of outfits outside of a suit. I'm seriously considering calling on Clinton and Stacy to intervene
