Sockless Civil Rights Etc... (Click to show)

I am very tired of the thought process all too common these days that leads someone to think that since they like vanilla and you like chocolate that your favor to chocolate disrespects and threatens their favor of vanilla.

It is widely accepted to think this way about sports teams but even there it should have limits.




There are absolutely no limits with sports teams.  At least not while you're at the match.  Screaming and cursing at the men in the wrong coloured shirts along with a few tens of thousands of other people, is an exhilarating and civilised release.  It's an outlet for the base, barbaric, tribal instincts that we hide under our Egyptian cotton undershirts (or should do).  Let it out on a Saturday afternoon for the contrived and nebulous purpose of organised games, and no war is necessary.  Then once out of the gates, we can treat everyone with respect - even if they support Chelsea.


As for suited socklessness, rolled up jacket sleeves, baseball caps and cargo pants with a tie, well, what is an internet forum for, if not to release one's most strident prejudices unedited without the risk of offending actual people?


P.S. I accidentally "thumbed" T for his overall look before realising he was wearing denim. lol8[1].gif

Just wanted to say I really like the looks people are posting lately and my recent purchases (which will debut soon) have been honed and distilled from the advice and comments I have received in the past here. No more tight pants, no more jackets that are too tight in the middle etc. Looking forward to being an active member again.

In other news, writing a dissertation is really hard. Even more so when teaching a section of statistics.


Wearing a jacket will increase your confidence and poise while you write.  Good luck! :)

For Reference you are looking pretty damn dapper today again as you look every time I see a post/pic of yours.

I like your shoes, Crusty - wet weather specials or not.


It's absolutely steaming here; hot and humid.  So I...er...dropped the waistcoat.

Navy suit, white shirt...wedding next weekend

Silver textured solid tie? purple textured solid tie? I don't want to wear a glen plaid tie as I am not in the wedding party and I think the groom is wearing one.


I vote purple.

Purple sucks. Silver wedding tie.
post #52857 of 78718

I like purple with texture, as suggested.

Do grayscale pictures of pB's outfits look any different from full color versions?

Also, +1 for silver
