The noble gentleman has not looked, deeply, enough at nature if he believes this to be the case.


Everything else is on point. That outfit is what's wrong with America.

No. I've said it a thousand times before. You might as well match your socks to your trousers, too.

Just imagine, the only thing you'd ever have to worry about picking out is your tie.

I agree that white shirt and square shouldn't be a habit or the status quo, but within a minimalistic look it can be pulled off quite well, IMO. Think mid grey flannel, black knit tie and black gunboats (a la Thome Browne, minus the horrific cropped fit).

Looking good does that.

No one should ever wear the bolded items.

Think you're completely off-base with the anti-knit tie sentiment. The other two are debatable, and better thought of at their best than at their worst.

If you don't like black knit ties, you don't like life.

This may explain my many vices.

In a universe where no two things are identical, it's the appearance of sameness that suggests struggle.

How do you know you aren't just looking at the same shoe five times?

Nah. He's a studious reader and good logician, but an inferior philosopher.
