    I thought this little essay would be good for some debate around here:

    http://www.lewrockwell.com/tucker/tucker38.html


    One thing I've recalled over the years from that article is his distinction between presentable and practical clothing. I was reminded of it while reading the Saturday thread. I admit to posting the link without having re-read the essay recently, but as I said, I post in any case in the interests of discussion, not by way of full-throated endorsement. I can't remember whether he says things that, today, I would find slightly embarrassing.

    This guy is a bore and a self-righteous bastard. Thanks, but no thanks.

    In the article, he says people who don't shave are slobs, yet his picture clearly shows him with scruff.

    1. Bill Clinton's suits were fine for his character and position, and I certainly liked them. 2. Americans also voted for George Bush.

    Yeah. Two or three is for normal jackets... four or five is for Nehru collars, which you wouldn't wear as a business suit anyways.

    He seems not to have gotten the memo about brown shoes (and to put away the black ones). It reads like the "Rules" were translated by computer from Russian to English.

    That's one of the worst clothing-related things I've ever read. Truly embarrassing.

    A competent tailor will ask what side you "Dress" before cutting your trousers.

    I think they should cut the PC act and just flat out ask which side your wang goes on usually.

    How to Dress Like a Fool.

    And a rather uninspiring fool, at that.

    Does that not read like a trad manifesto?
