Gnatty, love the look overall, but I just can't quite get behind such soft collars. Do they look different in real life, or am I just being too English about a nicely starched collar?

1. Hire pole vaulter as aid.
2. Sex scandal.
3. speech writer also helps write your docudrama politico thriller / sartorial guide
4. Make millions off book and movie.
5. Buy more bespoke.
6. repeat -this time as a lobbyist.

Several problems, though:

1. What does a state senator do? Based on what I read in the paper, they seem mostly to run their cars into telephone poles. Perhaps there might be an initial thrill, but wouldn't that get rather old in repetition?

2. Who will write my speeches? Is there anyone available? I prefer inexpensive.

3. There probably is a grassroots group pining for sarcastic, acceptably dressed and shod representation. But, how do I translate this pool of personal injury law clients into a political movement?

4. There's the small matter of my posts here. The photographs. Les bon mots. A few months ago, my wife brought up this subject. It went sort of like so:

"[garbled] and I think that you should pick something. You're the right age and we think you could do some good."

"Dear, I like what I'm doing. Particularly now, there are se important things. You also know that I don't really believe in politics or economics except in the punitive sense."

"Look how horrible the jackasses are, though. That Coakley [expletive] on down. You could do a better job."

"Thank you, dear. May I show you something? You know that clothing forum where I blow off steam and post those ridiculous photos of myself?"

"Yes, so you're eccentric. People expect that from us."

"Well, here's a series of photos that I just posted. She's a college pole vaulter out on the Left coast."

"She's cute."

"Well, imagine this in the Cambridge Chronicle."

[pause]. Then, in her exact rendering of Nora Charles:

"You idiot."

She's right.

Yeah, but I wouldn't mind being dominated by the right pair of socks. (Hmmm. I don't even know what that means, but it sounds kinda dirty.)

That's how I interpreted your comment -- a well-meaning reminder that such things can easily be overdone. I bought my first horizontal stripers last weekend, and I'm still working up the nerve to wear them.

I find it rather cute and endearing that you don't know when you're being flirted with.

That depends on why you use that particular knot. Many of its biggest fans like the double 4-in-hand because it often pushes the dimple off to one side in a casual, insouciant manner. I'm anal-retentive, though, and I always fight with the damned thing until it sits squarely in the middle.

I think one response might be the two-glance - skeptical at chest level followed by quizzical at eye level. Takes panache to pull it off without getting hit hard.

Several problems, though:

What will you wear? State Senators (even the crooked ones) usually dress bad.

If you are not wearing AEs (or K Coles) and suits from the Men's Wearhouse, the voters won't trust you.

Men's Wearhouse sells these terrible things that are merely pieces of cardboard with three silk points at the top for you to insert into your pocket to simulate a pocket square with no fuss, no muss. Though I must admit I would like to see the look on a guy's face when the girl playfully tugs on it and it does, in fact, turn out to be fake. edit: this.

Giving WAYWRN another shot:
Doing this is very good for me. Helps me realize things like (a) these trousers need more taper and (b) the shirt sleeves could stand to be taken in a bit. - Keith
