My mother always told me that some day a wonderful man would come along and make my dreams come true. Well, yesterday it happened. I was walking along the street and some dude said, "Nice suit." I said "Thanks." It was a very conservative suit too, which makes it even better because he wasn't just responding to the fact that I looked outlandish. I was on my way to meet a potential client, so it was nice to get a little boost of confidence.



It's Paul Stuart's Phineas Cole line in charcoal gray. Thanks for helping me have some style, SF. I have spent the last few months trying to up my game in that regard, and it's good to feel like I've actually made progress.

I have reddish hair and recently lost about 30lbs. A couple of weeks ago I was walking back to the office from a meeting wearing my Zegna suit. A random lady, not bad looking, said "has anyone ever told you that you look just like prince Harry?" That one had me feeling good for days.

Nice! Hopefully I will eventually get a compliment from a lady. By which I mean my wife, of course, if you're reading this, darling.

Hi Mister, I also think you're looking very handsome today. One thing though, maybe you could hem those pants a bit higher they seem to be bunching up around your ankles. But your shirt, tie, jacket and PS hanky are looking real good.

Thanks, I'll take another look at the hem. The pants have side tabs rather than a belt, and I have lost a bit of weight recently so they are probably sagging.
