Thanks guy's I have rather enjoyed this exchange, in a sort of vicarious way, being too shy myself to jump into the fray. Woody Allen has "branded" a certain persona: frumpy, Jewish, neurotic, and I have usually enjoyed his movies. I don't think I would aspire to his look, but then again there is much casual wear at this site that seems to deviate from well-groomed look. I personally prefer a "Holland and Holland" country look. or I think I saw a recent RLBL posting of preppy attire that I think looked great. It could be that radical dog gravitates to the whole "Woody Allen " persona, since I assume that "Radicaldog" and "Woody Allen" are on the same political page, for example in support of Obama regardless of where he was born, his religion, whom his handlers are, his indifference to the voting rights of White people, his stewardship of the economy to bring down unemployment, or his successes in Afghanistan. This forum is about fashion and I’m not about to use this tread to insert my own political views. I may be a little jealous that my Ex-wife didn’t have a stepdaughter that I could have included as part of my retirement portfolio, but I don’t let that influence my opinion of Allen’s dress. Frankly though, I can’t imagine anyone complementing Woody Allen on his dress, and I kind of think that Woody Allen might take offense to anyone telling him he dresses well. Radicaldog says he is an academic, and there is a tendency to receive approval from other fellow travelers by putting down conservative America, and so in an open forum one might forget that people may have strong opinions in the opposite direction. It would seem from Radicaldogs original post was that his admiration of Woody Allen was that fact that Allen was making a statement that he wasn’t a right-winger or a banker, rather than an appreciation of his clothing. And in the words of that great liberal cause-celebe, Rodney King “Why can’t we all just get along”, and not try to bait others into harsh words.
