As opposed to most of my previous life, thanks to the advice I have received on styleforvm, I now get fairly regular compliments on my attire. Sport coats are often praised ("Nice suit!" ) and such but the conversation is usually about me. Monday was different. I was standing in a check out line, dressed casually but sf approved when a male voice behind me stated, "Bucks! My wife won't let me wear mine. She says nobody wears them anymore!" I turned to see a man in his late 50's or early 60's clad in tee shirt, denim shorts and running shoes. "She's obviously wrong.", I asserted in a friendly manner as I glanced down at my dirty buck suede shoes. "I'm wearing mine tomorrow!", he said with enthusiasm. "Great idea! Tell her you're doing your part to have people dress well in public again, even if it's only one person at a time. Good luck!" We laughed it up, said our goodbyes and went our separate ways. I had never seen him before and I haven't seen him since but I sincerely hope that he kept his word. I'll put this one in the sf "Win" column. Thanks guys.
