So not only can you not SEE, you can't even READ. "[N]ot too dashingly open, not too mafia-closed." Spread collars and point collars are both NOT CONSERVATIVE. The collar should be medium, in the middle, centrist, moderate, not too much of one, not too much of the other. Whoever told you that a point is conservative is full of $hit. Mob guys and mob poet laureates like Scorcese wear the point. Are they conservative? I DON'T THINK SO.

If you can't hold your liquor, don't blame me. This, from a guy who wears black suede shoes. You don't have a single conservative thing in your whole closet.

You don't know $hit. Can't you tell flash effect when you see it? That suit is charcoal. Only pimps wear light gray, and pimps are not conservative.

Only women and girly men should have that kind of waist suppression.

I hope you are at least eating steak and potatoes tonight, probably some veggie lover.

How about shoes? They are conspicuously missing from the big picture. No EG 888, JL 8000, C&J 337 or Vass dandy chisel toe gay craps.

Manton, I know you take all your notes from Molloy, but spread collars are the ANTITHESIS of conservative business dress. Maybe in the big city you like to pair spread collars with your feather boas and fishnets, but my grandpappy didn't wear no spread collar. You can't even buy spread collars at Marshalls. You'd have to waste a bunch of money on a SHIRT to get that kind of nonsense. And that just ain't done.

Reading comprehension as good as ever, eh, Doc? If that IS your real name ...

That is NOT a spread collar. It is a MEDIUM spread collar. Not too open, not too close. NOT TOO ANYTHING. The essense of Conservative Business Dress is understatement, avoiding the extremes. A true point collar is an EXTREME. Extremism in defese of liberty may be no vice, but extremism in dress is NOT CONSERVATIVE.

Black stitch cap oxfords. Satisfied? Or are you just another troll?

That combination looks like a parody of a metrosexual's idea of conservative dress for wear at the offices of a left-wing publishing empire.

Hmmm. Is there a political agenda here?

Manton that ensemble does look appropriate for a conservative business environment from my perspective, but I do feel that a forward point collar with a smaller knot would be more appropriate in a contemporary business setting. I also think that a tie with a little more color would make the overall presentation seem a little less shabby without losing the overall seriousness which I believe can help a person's motivation during the work day; maybe Matt would say that it would bring it up a taste level, which I would also agree with.

I'd love to discuss this further but I'm currently occupied trying to reach Carlo Franco so I can recommend that Chuck hires Connemara as his new customer service manager.
