    What are you doing here if you're not obsessed with clothing? He has to be true to himself.

    Stitchy es el jefe.

    I prayed ever so hard for the lap pools to grow, but alas, they remain skinny. Irregardless, I got a new square and believe I folded it nice... so I share. Shirt is actually light blue but seems to have washed out to white. I don't know why. I'm not a scientist.

    I would say that is a bit of a cop-out. "Being true to myself" is the refrain used in defense of many fashion disasters.
    I am obsessed with clothing. My goal is appearing as though I am not. Modulating for that sweet spot is wherein the pleasure lies (YMMV). It's very easy to grow a mustache and wear a top hat.

    Thanks! It's actually just a Polo RL tie I got on ebay a while back. I don't know Atkinson's... should I?

    Not everybody shares your goal or a need to modulate.

    Critic the fit not his intentions.

    That's why I put the YMMV part.
    For the record, I didn't critique it for better or worse. I said that the outfit telegraphs an obsession with clothing. That could be a huge win for some (paging @Claghorn )

    If he wasn't going for that, it's something to be aware of. If he was, then his signal was broadcast correctly. It's good to have this kind of opposing viewpoint to get an objective sense, right?

    Yup :)

    I aim to tastefully project an obsession with clothes.
