    My wife grew up in a similarly frugal background. Quite interestingly, in her it instilled a desire to look fashionable and stay current in terms of clothes and shoes. She is the best dressed woman I know, however there is one thing I will never understand about her. She likes nice shoes (don't we all), but when the heel pads start to wear down she just throws them away. I'm no cobbler, but I have to think that it's not a complicated effort to put new pads on a heel.

    Mrs. Clags is right, but I like it. I still dont see those kind of stripes as being all that formal. And the shirt jives really well with the rest of the ensemble.

    My wife is so not interested in getting involved in my clothing. She too is quite frugal, and my SF lief is sub-optimal as far as she is concerned. She appreciates that I dress well, but the dollar bills aspect is no bueno.

    Yeah, but do any of us consider the dollar bill aspect to be bueno? I sure don't. I thrift and ebay a large number of my items and spend the real money on tailoring.

    I'll just say +1 to all this. She doesn't give me crap though She knows I enjoy it and leaves me alone....only makes fun of me sometimes.

    I believe I hit the jackpot in the SF SO department. Not only does Erica encourage my interest in menswear, she goes to Pitti (and other menswear events) with me.

    I'm actually quite frugal though, in SF terms. I don't spend particularly large amounts of money on stuff for myself.

    Also, killer SC southernstyle!
