    I am rather fond of that Criterion Collection, and their DVD's.

    This is what I wore out to dinner tonight. I think this is by far the best fitted RTW suit that I own. Suit: Ermenegildo Zenga. Tie: Armani Collezioni. Shirt: S180 Canali Exclusive. Cuff Links: Links of London. Any comment from ladies? Please .. I am thinking of posting this pic on Lavalife. LOL [​IMG]

    I can speak with some authority on this topic having reviewed literally thousands of prospective beaus online back in the day (pre-Chuck).

    You're handsome, well-dressed and well-spoken. As such, you won't have any problem with the ladies. This is a good picture, but not a great one. 1) It's blurry, 2) You aren't smiling much and 3) your head is tilted the wrong way. I know this is silly, but scores of professional photographers would tell you that for a more masculine look, your head should tilt towards the far shoulder. For a more feminine look, the near shoulder.

    Again, I'll acknowledge that it is a trivial point, but since you specifically asked about using the pic for these purposes, I thot I'd toss in my 2 cents.

    But again, let me reiterate. You COULD use this pix effectively. You're a good looking guy, who dresses beautifully with apparent ease. Any idea how hard that is to find nowadays?? Good luck.

    Interesting point - but how do you determine which shoulder is which. In this picture, his head is tilted toward the shoulder that is farther away from us as the viewer, yet you say this is the near shoulder...

    Is it like that whole Stage Left, Stage Right thing that always confuses me?

    OK Bradford, there always has to be a heckler in the crowd. [​IMG] His shoulders are slanted. The TOP of his head should be tilted towards the shoulder that is slanted away from his ear.

    I do not have "white" light at home. I think yellow light confuses my digi cam.

    I'm glad you said it, Jill. I was going to say that Milano didn't look masculine enough with that pose. MS, I'd wear that suit, and maybe spice it up with a patterned shirt -- fine pinstripes perhaps -- or a color of some sort. I think the white shirt might imply business shark, which might turn some women off. IMO, the power suit look turns women on in real life. But for a picture, something a little softer is a good choice (so, that suit, but a less stark shirt, tie -- blasphemous maybe, but I think loosening the knot a tad and unbuttoning the top button of your shirt might give it even a more relaxed look). Good luck.

    I would say that the picture is a little too blurry, and that you look a little too feminine in that pose. I would recommend a close up picture, and in more relaxed clothing. Something that is impressive in real life can come off too aggressively online. A garment washed shirt in a lot less intimidating. Lose the tie. No tilting of the head.

    Also, don't take a pic in the hallway of your apartment. Do it outside on a slightly overcast day where your rough-housing with your dog, hanging with friends, etc. If I were you, I'd put a few up on one of those rating sites (hotornot comes to mind) and choose the highest rated ones.

    Actually.... I think the picture that ended Jill's days on matchmaker.com 7 long years ago was far less sartorially sophisticated and even contained a detached hand on my shoulder belonging to, in Potteresque terms, She Who Must Not Be Named.

    Head was straight, smiling...
    Jill just said "You looked calm, in control and strong - not in a macho way but in a relaxed and confidant way - I had no idea what a spaz you really were"

    FWIW as weird as online shopping for dates sounds neither I nor Jill had the time or inclination for the club scene back then and it was handy to be able to narrow down 5000 profiles to 50 through the search criteria then weed through the pictures and narrow it down to 20, then read the profiles to determine whether the person had minor beneficial features like a brain and a sense of humor and then go out with 10 or so. Took getting used to but it was a wonderful screening process - might as well eliminate those you deem fatally flawed up front. The tricky part was that I was going out with Jill and one of her best friends... a fact they deemed too humorous to share immediately.

    How is the online dating scene these days? I don't miss the single life one little bit

    I always had doubts about online dating. People on the Internet scare me. Glad to see it's working out for some people, though. Milano - Good suit. Much better sleeves [​IMG]

    Alias, I am sure that - if you use your avatar - you will scare them, not the other way around.
