I think Manton is in mourning
I can keep wearing my notch lapel tuxedo before 6 PM because I like it!!!! Now no one can judge me or look at me oddly, if they do I will simply refer them to Manton who straighten them right out.
A clever bid at making people stop posting in the "good taste" thread to seek validation.
I think Manton has finally given [read, woken] up and has found a point of enlightenment however fleeting it may have been.
I don't think I've ever seen Manton so cyber-angry. This is the equivalent of your dad making you smoke the whole carton of cigarettes.
I question the premise of this thread.
Rules can be helpful (when learning or when you're stuck) and they can get in the way (make you boring or predictable)*.
*I realize boring is a good trait sometimes. but boring can also be... boring.
The thing is, the "rules" are rarely so precise as to make anything fully predictable. What distinguishes a good outfit from a bad one is just as likely to be a matter of execution within the rule as whether the rules were followed.
you people don't understand the premise of this thread
Perhaps people are confused by the title's questionable punctuation.
"It's all relative,[COLOR=FF0000];[/COLOR] wear what you want."
The premise of this thread was not adequately explained to the people.
Seems we are getting to The People vs. The OP
I assumed the premise was proof by contradiction - of which we see and can find much. Am I wrong?
