    I might have exagerrated with the "all-black" thing . But I have almost no black casual clothes. So far I decided to get black pants, a couple of black sweaters and tees, something similar to Brian's jacket and something to layer with in warm weather.

    Yes, I'm an architect and in my field it must be combined with little round glasses. Bonus points for a Bow tie to complete the eccentric architect look.

    Why would you want to look like a man of the cloth?

    "There aint no grave....can hold my body down. There aint no grave....can hold my body down. When I hear that trumpet sound, I'm gonna rise right out of the ground....aint no grave...can hold my body down."

    Given the topic, that seemed appropriate enough.

    I shot a man in Reno. Just to watch him die.

    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
    And I looked and behold, a pale horse
    And his name that sat on him was Death
    And Hell followed with him.

    All-black outfits often remind me of restaurant servers or people at bars.

    Agree with everyone above..You should never wear a black suit unless you are a waiter,undertaker or a Japanese businessman from the 80s..Looks wrong on all accounts
