Offensively Bold Tailored Clothing - Page 9

post #121 of 181
The fact that you have resorted to name calling ought to demonstrate how little force there is behind your arguments.

But-- just for the sake of argument. I dress conservatively. I own only solid colored suits and even my shirts and ties are very muted. I take issue here because you choose to assault things which truly are common, mundance and in fact a staple of conservative business attire. No cufflinks? When I look around the room daily I would say 50 to 75 percent of the men have french cuffed shirts on. Colored shirts? They are the NORM. I could not even give you a percentage because I feel like 95% of men wear them.

No one is snickering behind my back, but I think your fear that people might laugh behind yours clearly blinds you to taking even the slightest kind of joy in how you dress, which is truly a shame for a man whose passion is so clearly clothing.

I was afraid of that. I originally thought I might pair it with some patch madras trousers. Perhaps plain madras would tone it down a bit.


Okay, I was really just looking for an excuse to post the jacket. This thread seemed as good a place as any.

If you want to teach, go write a proper book. Until then, these incomplete, shot-from-the-hip, inflamatory e-lessons will be sent to page 2 of the SF. And then page 3. 4. 5.

When Manton arrived at the nearest town which adjoineth the forest, he found many people assembled in the market-place; for it had been announced that a clown would give a performance. And Manton spake thus unto the people: I TEACH YOU THE CONSERVITIVE BUSINESS DRESS. Slovenly dressed individuals are something that is to be surpassed. What have ye done to surpass Offensively Bold Tailored Clothing or other unsuitable dress? All beings hitherto have created something beyond themselves: and ye want to be the ebb of that great tide, to be in the corridors of prestige and power, and yet you would rather go back to the beast than surpass such bedraggled individuals?? What is the ape to man? A laughing-stock, a thing of shame. And just the same shall Offensively Bold Tailored Clothing be to the Conservative Business Dress: a laughing-stock, a thing of shame.

So now you force me to take up to twelve. I don't even know if this machine goes that high. Still, here goes.

I did not call you names. I said you must dress like a clown. I did not call you a clown. If I had it would not have been an insult because clowns are SUPPOSED to dress like clowns. Hence it would have been a complement; "you dress appropriately."

I never said colored shirts cannot be CBD. I specifically said that blue can be CBD. Maybe I should make that the next tutorial. I'll try to keep it monosyllabic.

The "everybody does it" excuse has been around for a long time. It's persuasive power is nil. Does everyone in your company extort money, bang secretaries on their desks, and drink at lunch? If so, would you? Don't be a sheep, be a man.

I do take joy in the way I dress. It's YOU who are overthinking it, by getting hung up on colored shirts and French cuffs. You've got to cut those hang-ups loose, man. They are holding you back.

Don't you have some hand-stitched Kiton bespoke shoes to fondle?

No, but the bespoke Lattanzis will have to do.

But windowpanes -- NEVER! And double windowpanes -- No, No, A Thousand Times No! That's not even conservative enough for a self-respecting pimp.


I beg to differ. I pimp ideas to the federal government all the time, *and* I wear a (conservative) double windowpane suit. Not at the same time, because I have too much self-respect, but I *am* a self-respecting pimp who wears a double windowpane suit.

For all you know this man could have some sort of disability; how would you feel then to make fun of what he is wearing in such a mean spirited manner?

Do yourself a favor. Read threads before you parachute in and highjack them with your ignorance. CBD is about as far from Kressley as you can get. That's more like Flaming Homosexual Nightclub Wear (FHNW).

I thought you were rather experienced in FHNW? After all, what else would you wear to the disco with those guys who are just "friends"?

I bet Carson Kressley can at least spell "taboo".

Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, little man.

Wow! Ideas for future threads are multiplying like rabbits. Manton, perhaps you could post a picture of you in your finest FHNW, along with a critique, so we can learn how to wear our pink shirts and velvet blazers properly.
