Gentlemen, Sterotypes would have us believe that when it comes to apparel choices, women focus on issues of color, uniqueness, cut, fit, care, and so on. By the same token, men supposedly want conformity and general acceptance rather than uniqueness, and never consider such "vanities" as color, care, line, etc. Just curious: what ARE your considerations in clothing? Do you ever put color at the top of your suit-buying list (and I mean real color emphasis, not the fact that you "should have" a navy, a gray, etc.)? Do you ever shop for a shirt or trousers with easy-care at the top of your list? (witness the "I have sinned" thread just posted by TCN about wrinkle-free shirts) Would you rather look like and be accepted by others at your company/firm/bank, or be noticed for your uniqueness? Do you concern yourself with the fine points of line and how it flatters you, or do you just buy a suit because it has a "don't f*** with me" silhouette? Malcolm Gladwell wrote many years ago a fascinating 10-page New Yorker article on male buying psychology ( http://www.gladwell.com/1997/1997_07_27_a_khaki.htm ), and I'm curious what you see as your own buying methodology and psychology, and how you see that in relation to the way women buy clothes. Now there's a Friday topic for you.
