    Omg, that was the best five minutes of my life that I ever wasted. Thanks for the laughs, my gf has reaffirmed that I am a complete clothing dork.

    This ensemble would not pass muster in Santa Cruz, CA. Can this be worn with reef sandals and driven in said '85 Volvo with faded Phish concert stickers?

    I think this is a publicity stunt to sell more books - kind of like Eddie Griffin crashing that Enzo (cross posted fuckers)

    I think that you are likely wearing suspenders. That is not conservative at all. It is either fancy-Dan Englishman, or it is backwoods hick. Neither of those two poles is conservative.

    And That One Night With Manton Sex Tape that is all over the internet all of a sudden. The things one will do to sell books. Ann Coulter has nothing on Manton.

    Hey, boutonniere dandy boy: before you throw another stone, learn to conjugate verbs. That's a conditional tense. You want to recommend that Chuck hire, not hires.

    Please leave the grammar to those of us with edjumacations. His isn't a conditional sentence (there is no conditional cause-and-effect), but rather an irrealis sentence using the subjunctive. God, I have to do this shit all day at work, and then clean up after the kids here....

    It has no backseat, dumb@$$. How can a conservative businessman be driven around in that?

    Ha! If you look at my immediate edit, you will see that you were too quick. I just hope your lady friend does not say the same thing.

    Yeah, Pollack jokes are totally beyond the pale here. Conservative business jokes only please. (That means no black jokes either)

    Is black joke an appropriate business humor?

    The Prince is swell and all, Manton, but I think The Suit would have been better if it were all written in the tone of this thread...
