my visit to Napoli & Mina @ Napoli Su Misura - Page 190

post #2836 of 3961
I've spoken of different member's posts through the years. My girlfriend usually asks me, "Oh, which guy crush was this now?"

It's pretty rare for someone, stranger or otherwise, to make a negative comment in person. Loud stuff getting more compliments doesn't mean people like it more.

I can't help but wonder if in the 'normal' fashion driven world (as opposed to on a few select threads here), people tend to care and notice a nice (flashy) item you have on (in isolation), as opposed to the outfit as a whole. Thus, you see a discordant mix of flashy items. Which is also why, possibly, those starting to bespeak clothing (and having graduated from the fashion circle) tend to try and get their money's worth by adding every little detail that will give an 'oomph' factor to whatever it is they're bespeaking.

It's annoying to get it back to how it was originally folded. They are like children, just have this "grab" reaction to them.

Phone rings at office:

'Hello, may I speak to Manton please?'
'This is he, how can I help?'
'I saw a guy wearing a nice double-breasted suit in a hairy material. He told me I should check with you on how I can get my husband to dress better'.

I don't know how Manton would reply. Sorry.

I'd pay 20 dollars to see his reaction.

FTFY

New york. They are here.

At the office christmas -oops!- "holiday" party the boss handed out these novelty gifts to everybody and there wasn't enough. I was the only one that didn't get something. Then somebody said, "we should all pitch in and get him some suspenders!" Everybody roared with laughter. Anyway, it is March and I still haven't received my suspenders.

I'm sure if Vox was here he would have a crisp $5 note to pitch in.

That is some bullshit.

Well, I was late to the party probably from being on Style Forum.

I usually think of this as a good thing.

My second conviction for violation and my third for manslaughter had to do with such a scenario.
