    Is it bad that reading anything on that site makes my blood boil? I just picture all the Chotches and AmJacks reading this advice and thinking they know something about style.

    I was going to suggest that the author needs a good D-slap, but maybe they are actually helping us out. If it weren't for the types of guys that follow these trends, we wouldn't stand out so much (in a good way) from the rest of the pack of 'style-conscious' guys.

    also noted is an article on why one must spend on shoes... "Wearing exclusive shoes will definitely help polish a man's image. This image can make a big difference between a normal man and a man with expensive shoes in the first stages of dating. In addition, note that poor quality shoes are especially noticeable when a man is well dressed because of the contrast it creates. Women will notice details such as cheap shoes, and it is therefore worth spending the extra dollars to buy higher quality shoes. Not only will women look down, notice the shoes and be impressed with them, but they might even see potential in a man with good taste for footwear. Let me explain: low-priced shoes are usually associated with cheap mannerisms and women usually don't like cheap men. So when a woman looks at a man's shoes, she will analyze them. If he is wearing cheap shoes, then she may come to the conclusion that he is a cheap person; not frugal, but cheap . This may seem pretty farfetched, but in fact, it isn't. Ask a female friend and you will be surprised about her opinion on the matter. Simply take this advice and don't lose out on a hot member of the opposite sex because you didn't want to spend a few extra dollars on quality shoes. Aside from the monetary factor, women enjoy dating distinguished and stylish men. Women's attraction to stylish men is partly due to the fact that for many years, most of us didn't really take care of our wardrobe. With the whole liberation of women movement, women will now date men they like, and they will choose those who actually take care of themselves... and who wear nice shoes. Although style is not a substitute for a great personality, wearing stylish shoes can definitely give someone an edge when it comes to attracting women on a first date, but it is not the perfect solution. Get out and go shopping for classy shoes!" http://www.askmen.com/fashion/fashiontip/tip16.html and their "5 Stylish Shoes For Every Occasion" article... http://www.askmen.com/fashion/fashio...on_advice.html

    Boy that's genius!

    Square toe Frankenstein-shoe paired with black slacks "and you've got a great business look for the spring." [​IMG]

    Or how about this cutting-edge sartiorial advice:
    "Wear your modern sneakers with any wash of jean and your favorite vintage T-shirt, and you've got yourself the perfect casual outfit." Wow, sneakers, jeans and a T-shirt....why can't I come up with ensembles like that???

    By that reasoning, everybody around here should be getting his cock jumped like mad for his EGs or Lobbs.

    Its really helps the author's credibility when he spells the word [​IMG] "heal" incorrectly.

    I love how all the pictures of shoes are black, and square-toed.

    Also it's laughable how "outdoor sneakers" and "casual shoes" have their own distinction.

    Typical article catering to douche-baggery.

    I like that. IIRC, his job on Married With Children was shoe salesman. Ed O'Neill, a great unsung character actor.

    Ever see him in The Adventures of Ford Fairlane? Great bad movie.

    One of the (innumerable) embedded links in that article goes to a store that sells Sansabelt slacks. Your advice is suspect at best, Askmen.com!

    Great bad movie when drunk. I probably did see him, but I sure don't remember.

    I'm thinking of him in The Dogs of War, among other movies. Too bad they didn't make a sequel called The Cats of Peace.

    Askmen.com is apparently nothing more than a marketing scheme. It also downloads cookies just from visiting that page, which my spyware program picked up.

    Plus the "advice" is crap.
