    Here's another NY Times sartorial article about wardrobe consultant.
    [​IMG] $1600/day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year, that works out to $400,000/year. Â Anyone here wants to switch career, doing things that you enjoy while making a good living?

    "Keep shirts tucked in, even polo's"

    I think not, polo's can be worn out.

    See Jon, you've already got your own marketing spiel to get you started:

    "Other wardrobe consultants will tell you to tuck, but I encourage you to wear it out. That's what makes my service so special."

    That woman from Houston is awful. The diagonal stripe polo shirt, with a white t-shirt underneath, and khakis?.

    Some polos can be worn out on some people.  Certain builds and certain polo cuts don't lend themselves to being worn untucked.  For those who are unable to differentiate among the variations, "keep shirts tucked in" is not a bad rule of thumb.

    I weep for my city. 99.9% of people here really don't know how to dress.

    Don't fret, South Florida is no better. Jon. (Dress shoes don't have Nike Air Bubbles, Cold Haan.)

    "In some circles, shabbiness can be as grave a business transgression as licking the knife at a power lunch." Whoa.....you can't lick your knife, bummer . After reading that article, I thought wow, look at all the money we're all saving; I'm going to go out now and buy more shoes. [​IMG]

    See, that's what always screwed me up: ill-fitting Brioni suits and knife-licking. I could have used one of these consultants.

    For a low, low price of $1000 a day or $300 an hour (you lawyers know that this is perfectly reasonable), come to Boston, and I will go through your closet, tell you what's crap, and take you to Louis (hell, I'll even spring for the cab.) I'll even get you an appointment for a facial, a manicure, whatever.

    And I guarantee that you'll look better than that schmuck in the article.

    How do you mistake an anesthesiologist for an intern?  Everyone looks about the same in scrubs.  Are there special anesthesia Dansko's that I do not know about?  WJA care to enlighten?  And, outside the call of duty, anesthesiologists go home at 5-6 pm, or whenever they feel like it, while the interns have the pleasure of rouding half-asleep til 7 or 8.

    If those "wardrobe consultants" or personal shoppers get any kickbacks from stores where they shop with or for their clients, that would make the venture even more lucrative.

    I wonder how many people need to hire a $1600/day consultant.
