Well, I have to disagree with some of the aforementioned comments: What's wrong with driving shoes? Or boat shoes? If your car is stick shift (as mine is) you quickly appreciate the benefits of a driving shoe. As for boat shoes, well the look works in Florida, especially when you are on a boat. Seriously...as long as you go yachting on your friends 55 footer, you should look the part. I will agree that I have seen some atrocious examples of body piercing, but on some women, a nose piercing works. I guess people have their own tastes, but I personally don't mind a nose piercing as long as it looks good on the person (plus its better than a tattoo). I like Polo shirts. Ralph Lauren Polo, um, polo shirts. The ubiquitous standard for polo shirts worldwide. They fit me the best, the material is of sufficient quality for my needs and I really don NEED MOP buttons on casual polo shirts. What I hate though is collar popping. Leave the damn thing down where it belongs. I will agree that most Cole Haan shoes are just ugly, what are they thinking? It's a dress shoe; lets leave the air bubble to casual shoes, shall we? What really is disconcerting to me is people from patrician families, with pedigrees, educations and occupations to match their trust funds, but yet cannot put together one single business outfit without looking like something out of a Men's Warehouse commercial. Especially in Manhattan. One of the greatest high-end shopping capitals of the world and they can't wear clothes that fit? Go out and buy a Flusser book, sit down and read from cover to cover...at least then you will have primer on which to base your sartorial dress. Jon.
