    How much bespoke stuff do you have? With your experience and eye for colors, you could probably do a very good job at desiging stuff.

    @Spoo
    Are you really feeling today's ensemble? The pants don't look like they belong - they mess with the color scheme of the top half IMO.

    As for truly bespoke "stuff", I have absolutely none - I've never expended that amount of cash on attire. I have a total of two made-to-measure suits, both from Brooks Bros. - a navy stripe three-piece (not the bold one - that was OTR from New & Lingwood in London) and a mid-blue glen plaid D/B. Otherwise, what you see on me is RTW/OTR - and usually not bought at full price, either. Clothing design is as much architecture as color choices - construction, particularly in menswear, is all-important, and is a subject on which I am less than educated. I merely entertain myself with consumption, and my background in art (a degree in art history) gives me license to use more color than the average man on the street (sometimes to good effect, sometimes not, as I've been informed in these fora).

    You have an art history BA? I thought you were a lawyer or financial something or other.

    Having a BA in Art History (actually a combined studio art/art history major) makes one more interesting at parties, but does a much-less-than-admirable job of paying the bills. Being a VP in IT for a large bank can be dull or annoying (or both), but the income stream has proved very useful over the years.

    This is all really interesting to hear. I mentioned to my girlfriend that one of my internet friends was going to the Cindy Sherman opening. She was naturally excited and asked me about you. I told her that you did IT work for a bank and dress well. She commented on how she would not imagine somebody "nerdy-like-a-computer-guy" would dress well, work for a bank and be into, or heard of Cindy Sherman. It all makes a little bit more sense now with your background. She said you must be an interesting guy. I better be careful she seemed more interested in you than me last night.

    I wonder why she is into me all of the time. I am way more nerdy and boring than the above...

    Nerdy is awesome. Boring is not. I've always been a nerdy engineer and a very social person with extremely broad interests. Girls love my nerdy side.

    Totally man. Last night I washed, rinsed and repeated. My hair looked like fro from the 70's. It was wonderful.



    I work in an esoteric industry. I don't even think my girlfriend could tell you what I do for work. I like to describe myself much like a Hot Wheels Matchbox car. Remember those? You get them, you're excited, they are shiny, you screem, "Yeah! A Lamborghini!" then you push it on the floor, say "Wooo!!!!! Look at it go!" Then the novelty wears off and you realize that there is no more fun to be had.

    I'm like that, but also devilishly handsome.

    Like us guys, all women really care about aside from money is looks. They are just as bad as us.
