    I agree and sorry for my rant. It is sad and frightening how much the public had been dumbed down. The article in question lacked clarity and this is what I was discontented about.

    Apology accepted sir. I know what you mean though. High School is the biggest arena for fighting to be accepted by looking a certain way, wearing certain brands. You'd think we'd outgrow this at some point, but the popularity of Affliction t-shirts clearly prove otherwise.

    I am always stunned how the Fascist moniker is always applied so casually to something believe to be both repugnant and that happens somewhere else.

    You do understand, that by definition, a fascist country is one where the government seeks to control private property and enterprise by exercising full to limited rights of ownership [except certain rights of possession and transfer] of the same through strict regulation and control over commerce and the economy? This makes fascism a political kissing cousin of communism where the state goes the next step and assumes full rights of ownership of all private property and enterprise including rights of possession and transfer?

    This means that most countries practice fascism of one form or another, and the good ol' US of A practices a highly rigid and effective form of fascism which most inhabitants choose not to realize as truth.

    If this is not so, then pray tell how one might acquire allodial title in real estate under US jurisdiction and not fee simple title, with its very limited rights of possession [which most assume to be full rights of ownership, but are not] and also how one might engage in enterprise without first registering with and paying tribute to the de jure government of the US?

    Guys thank you so much for your comments. I really appreciate it. In first view it might looks like a little bit controversial interview but when you dig it's obviously not )

    It's all about little psychology and good common sense as I think.

    What do you think about theory to build your wardrobe around your suits?

    This is good advice. Building outfits (shirts, ties, shoes) based on your suits is the way to go. If you do it well, you can use many of the components with different outfits. This is why whit and light blue shirts are so great. Their versatility allows them to go with just about everything else you have.

    But why buy a tie that does not work with the suits/shirts that you own? Either buy the complimentary items that you need to go with it, or don't buy it.

    Not really quite normal these days and indeed acceptable in informal circumstances.

    Correct word is 'slovenly' by the way.

    I think it makes sense and pretty much consistent in various info on the web. You know, like start with the basics of navy, black, grey and shirts that can be mixed and matched then followed by shoes and so on. I like his thoughts around keeping your wardrobe within the price range of your work environment...and choosing the right style to fit you and it does not have to be expensive.

    Agree. 1 is more common and 2 not so much but would be the maximum. Personally, I played with 1 or 2 and I prefer 2.

    The definition of slovenly seems worst than what it is actually describing. What I mean is this the appropriate word to describe someone with 2 buttons off or am i missing something here? I am a Noob after all. Any other thoughts on this?
