I would never wear that--those trousers are immodest, the bag looks cheap and is inappropriate and I don't wear turtle-necks. Also, I do not have a buzz-cut. Nor do I have any inclination to wear Karim Rashid glasses as white as your lady friend's teeth. If you're going to assume a position of the internet tough guy, make sure, at the very least, your suit measurement exceeds 36.

I thought Peter Pan wore tights. Thom Browne pants don't fit any tighter than my other suits/trousers.

The successful zero-intelligence-trader does not only exist in artificial ACE worlds but in real life. Proof: Tomas Maier (BV) et al., 2008.

Not that there's anything right with that.

Ive been books like "On Being a Man" by Sam Keen and "Iron John" by Robery Bly lately -

Heres the premise in brief:

- Beginning with the Industrial Revolution, boys have spent consistently less and less time in the presence of men as mentors, as their fathers moved from farming and the trades to the office

- Men spent 9 to 5 in the office and came home exhausted and watched TV, rather than mentoring the boys

- Women became more of a role model as they were the prominent figure in the home

- The sexual revolution of the 60s allowed women to enter the world of men (work and the office) and men to wear long hair a be sensitive (hippies)

- The culture of war has moved from the battlefields to the boardroom (manhood obtained by climbing the corporate ladder)

- Popular western culture lacks the ritual "rites of passage" towards manhood that were used in cultures of the past. What has replaced them (military bootcamp, fraternity hazing, binge drinking) are weak substitutes and have little to do with actual manhood

The result? A generation of indecisive men ("i dont know honey, what do YOU want to do tonight?")

Modern trends in fashion (Peter Pan: the boy who refused to grow up) only reflect this trend in our popular culture.
