I believe she will also talk to J. I'm told she's a Sunday style section writer, so we may not see the article till next Sunday.
I specifically asked her about when it would be in and she said Tuesday. Keep in mind, however, that with newspapers, especially a biggie like the NYT it certainly could get bumped to another day.

Who would have thought that when we first moved here from the GQ forums that we'd end up being plugged in the NYT heh... Nice job guys.

Update: The Times has a free lance photographer coming out this aft to take my picture. In my closet, which I haven't quite finished organizing after the move. They want me to wear something "hip", that I would wear on the weekends. I'm considering a Robert Graham paisley shirt untucked with contrasting cuffs unbuttoned and turned up, and either the Sevens or PDCs LAG helped me purchase, with Testoni or Mantellassi loafers (maybe even the EG Stowes?). Any other suggestions besides finishing my closet as best I can before he arrives?

What I ended up doing wasn't too far off, Tokyo...

Can't wait to see it. I don't think J got to talk to the lady, we were occupied with other more pressing matters most of the day. " The elusive owner/operator of the Style Forum 'J', was unavailable for comment."

I think back to going to church last Sunday with my brother-in-law's family. The minister was dresed in a button down collared shirt, pleated pant at least one size too small and a tie about navel level length. ( hes under 40 years old ) . At least 20-25 percent of those in attendance of the early service was dressed in jeans. Only 3 of us in attendance had any type of jacket/blazer. I was the ONLY person in a suit. Only two of us had pocket sqaures. Only 4 people besides myself had a tie on. The last wedding I attended of my best friends family ( the groom was 31 ) ... at least ONE HALF of the people showed up in jeans and many in jeans/t-shirts. The last funeral I went to even had a late 20s something "lady" show up wearing a T-shirt saying "Queen Bitch" on it. T.V ads and even G.Q. advertises distressed jeans as chic .Jeans of the type that I was ashamed to HAVE to wear do to family income when I was a child. Other than some casual curiousity seekers -will there REALLY be much of an impact on the forum? I will admit that it wouldnt hurt to have a lot of folks actually READING and taking to heart some of the information in many of the threads . Sadly, most will consider this forum a waste or too "geeky" I would guess. You know... the same people who spend 60-75.00 on a T-shirt with some arcane/mundane phrase on it... Respectfully, John G.

Hey JohnG, Some of us jeans and t-shirt wearer aren't completely ignorant about shirt tailoring and the fashion (sorry, style) industry. We just prefer to wear jeans and t-shirts. But I've never paid over $40 for a t-shirt.

My apology, For some inane reason it hit me that I should ammend my cimment about the jeans in the shower getting around for the "privelege" of going into work. < warm smile> I didnt realize it quick enough. I am talking about the jeans my grandaughter wears and thinks is "cool" the distressed ( for lack of a better word) jeans with strings and frays dangleing from them at the hems and even wastes and holes already showing or almost ready to burst through the fabric. ( ESPECIALLY paying 95.00 for them as she tried to talk my Mrs. into) Of course the more worn out or dirtier looking, the better. THOSE are the distressed jeans I meant. Too, I doubt if many of ( if any)the board would be so crude to wear THIS type of jean to church -weddings or a funeral. and I can almost guaranteee most would not wear "Queen Bitch" or perhaps "King Bastage"(?) to a funeral along with said jeans. I will also mention at my nieces wedding some of her family from Texas looked VERY acceptable in nice dress jeans, custom made boots ( one had a superb pair of hippo skin custom boots. I didnt even know those were legally made.) with a nice dress shirt and blazer. Her cousin even had the western string tie and black hat. Respectfully, John G the lucky. Now off to work to play with software.

Our minister today had on a suit, spread collar shirt with french cuffs, tie extended to the belt, linen pocket square and burnished chestnut Allen Edmonds Lexington shoes. But he's a natty guy. And RE the "lady" at the funeral:

Natty guy and one who knows how to find a bargain... Maybe we can pair the Funeral Gal with the Pizza Shop Guy with the "Live to %^#$" FC Connection Shirt from that thread a while back.... "Matchmaker, Matchmaker make me a match."   JJF

Update: Today I talked to Ginia Bellafante, the NYT reporter. We discussed the origin of the forum, the various interests and origins represented, etc. The article will be in tomorrow's Metro section and available online. I'm not sure exactly what the focus will be, but I can't wait to see Steve in a paisley shirt... no pictures of me- sorry everyone.

That is of course assuming he was wearing a paisley shirt...
