If you really want to show how astute you are, you should be asking why there is a bird house on top of the tv, where they found the giant butterfly next to the tv, and who chopped the wood for the fireplace. Bonus points for figuring out whether that's a rabbit or a chick on top of the mantle.

Ultracreeper.

You should be.

Mmkn, there's no reason to believe women are drones. When they know better, just like when men do, they also want better. My wife can spot virtually all the same fit problems I can now that I've pointed them out to her. She was going crazy in her chair during Quantum of Solace. I'm pretty sure there's no part of her that would prefer to see me in Armani or Ralph Lauren.

Skinnygoomba lives at home? Looks like his mom decorates the place.

If a Rubinacci jacket hung in the woods, would you hear someone say "nice drape?"

We've already closed the deal, so now we primarily enjoy looking good & enjoying nice things. I imagine as a bonus it makes the Mrs. randy, man I know how it makes me feel when my wife steps out looking

I hope SkinnyGoomba doesn't turn this thread into GQDerek's MyStyle Thread.

My wife likes it when I dress nice, but I dress nice to feel nice first and foremost. Compliments or any type of admiration are icing.

I do, though I often take into consideration what my wife likes, and I do listen to her opinion as well.

I dress solely for dopey's approval...or ideally, his silence.

From what I can tell you are blessed and well matched with your wife with regards to your sartorial pursuits. Your mentor friend's wife, however, seems to be off in more "intellectual" directions such as Comme des Garçons. And I won't even comment about Manton's, who isn't invited to the party. But that is neither here nor there. I can only pray that your wife has the same patience or blind spot as you once described your mother does for your penchant to practice your profession anywhere.

Am I being too lawyerly? I'm not even sure what that means.

Oh come on, now. Just because you don't like Pagoda shoulders and a trim fit doesn't mean his fit was objectively bad. Too much wrinkling in the arm when he pulled out his gun? Or was it the collar pulling away from the neck when he was involved in hand-to-hand combat?

I was wondering more about the peppergrinder (?) on top of the speaker. I think there's a rabbit and a chick on the mantel. FWIW, the wood in the fireplace looks like it was sawed, not chopped.....

But the fit was bad. Collar gape all over the place.
