Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 569post #8521 of 373957/8/14 at 12:36ampost #8522 of 373957/8/14 at 12:49amThread StarterAccord. All my cars have been Hondas. Got a 99 Accord for my 16th birthday. Drove 03 and 07 Civics in college. My sister wrecked my first car and a truck basically parked on my second.
Not a car person. Will probably drive Hondas the rest of my life unless something major changes. Don't really the point of junping to an Acura.post #8523 of 373957/8/14 at 3:27amThr days when Hondas ruled are long gone. Nowadays, theyre just boring but reliable cars. If you dress the way you do, an Accord will not complememt you for sure. I think you should get an Acura TL at the least but thats just my opinion.
I have a 2010 Nissan Maxima but my wife wants a BMW X5. Thats a lot of suits that I will be sacrificing...post #8524 of 373957/8/14 at 3:48ampost #8525 of 373957/8/14 at 3:57amThread StarterQuote:
As far as failing to complement how I dress: what I wear isn't part of a larger, holistic effort to create a certain image or to convey, honestly or otherwise, a certain lifestyle or set of priorities. It exists in isolation to a lot of preferences that might otherwise be associated with it. It is a reflection of a joy I get from obsession and very little else. In most of my tastes, I'm pretty modest. I like simple food. Regardless of how much money I make in the future, I have no desire to live in anything larger than a 3 bedroom house (I do intend on purchasing my parents' house, which is around a hundred years old in a historic district, but even were I not, anything larger than 3 bedrooms for a family with one kid (that's the plan) seems excessive). No interest in fancy cars. No interest in watches. The high life holds little to no appeal to me.
I guess the only other thing I would spend money on are things associated with interior design. I've already spent several thousand dollars on art (probably unusual for someone my age? I don't know) and will probably put a lot of money towards nice/interesting furniture throughout my lifetime.
This is probably a product of my Quaker upbringing, though more likely a product of my parents' values, as my parents were not born Quakers but joined the religion as adults as Quaker values aligned with their own.
Edit: Even for a dandy, I'm pretty boring and reliable in how I dress.post #8526 of 373957/8/14 at 4:29ampost #8527 of 373957/8/14 at 5:15ampost #8528 of 373957/8/14 at 5:46ampost #8529 of 373957/8/14 at 5:49ampost #8530 of 373957/8/14 at 6:36amQuote:Buy it!Originally Posted by The Noodles

What do you guys think of these ties

posted up in one, have not worn the other.Quote:
huge plus one. my parents had beater cars for a loooong time. mostly station wagons, then a weak old mini van, and the first "nice" cars we ever had as kids were the new honda civics they leased (2 leases in a row). my dad drives a CRV now.
since i got married, i have had 3 hondas. a red accord coupe that i wrecked by rear ending a scrap metal truck, and the accord v6 sedan and pilot that we have now. love em. absolutely love hondas.Quote:
you know i luv ya, but this is absurd. truly.
solid reply from clags. i would say i relate to that, there are certain aspects of "the high life" that do very much appeal to me, and others that do not appeal to me at all. i do not think there is any way to say that wanting a fancy car is more commendable or sensible than wanting fancy furniture or art, or visa versa for that matter. they are all extras in life, and some things appeal to some people, and other things to other people.
the point being, that just because a person may indulge in one area, does mean that not indulging in another area is uncomplimentary, or beneath him.post #8534 of 373957/8/14 at 7:04am
I'm a car guy - always have been. One of the hardest things for me about moving is parting with the two that I own. That said I'm into cars because I like driving and I like autos as pieces of machinery - I agree that (within reason) one should not view a car as a way to project personality or values. The status symbols associated with cars are the worst kind because unlike clothing or watches or art or houses or any number of other things they're tied directly to the price tag and not to any taste or discernment on the part of the owner.
And a big +1 on the Honda Fit callout above. If I was ever in the market for an econobox then it would definitely be a Fit with a 5-speed. Little high-revving go-kart.post #8535 of 373957/8/14 at 7:06amGoing back a second to the Howard Yount pants. As much as I like them and the price was good, I'm not too crazy about the low rise of them, even in the American cut it still seems to low for me. Get off my lawn ok!
Kulata, both ties look very nice. I love the colors. Have you ordered from them before? How is the make on them?
And jumping to cars for a second, because I'm a car nerd. Hondas - will run 4 eva! I used to love my VW's, I had a slew of GTI's/R32's but those were in my single days before a mortgage and they could get costly, they're fun though. Nowadays I've given Hyundai a shot. Korea Represent!! My work car is a boring elantra but it's crazy reliable and great gas, great stereo etc. I put 30,000 miles a year on my cars so it fits me perfect for that. My wife wanted a small car and picked up an accent that I think is a pretty sweet little hatchback (I love hatches and wagons). I wish I could one day be in an Audi RS6 or something but I know I would get too many tickets or kill myself. I need to drive a somewhat boring/slower car so I don't get into trouble.
