eh, SF is like the internet in general. it's a great place to get information, but it shouldn't dictate how you live your life. (duh)
also: emulating what you see here is really no worse than emulating what you see in GQ, Details, or Esquire. in fact, I'd say there's a much greater variety of styles represented here, so you have a better chance of finding what works for you.
