    He says he shops in downtown Detroit. Where? RenCen maybe? I can't think of anyplace else.

    Not much of a selection in RenCen. Actually, Judge Strong shops at Serman's, Henry the Hatter, the Broadway, etc. Lots of local places with a little "flair" (translation: pink gators can be had there).

    Another reason Detroit is a joke and has almost no good shopping.

    here in Detroit. He is a really fun guy (who keeps changes of clothes in his car) who likes to dress. He has an entire room of his house just as a closet.

    i wish i had the nerve to change to different outfit during the course of the day, i'd be scared if they fire me for being such a dandy.

    im the best dressed guy here at my workplace, everyone in hawaiian shirts, cargo shorts, and sandals. im the only guy in a nice, clean, pressed dress shirt, dress slacks, and gleaming shoes and matching belt. and im their IT guy.
    i work with software engineers, structural engineers, etc. .. it is a building and naval structure auditing company.

    it gets better: he is a criminal court trial judge! Anyhow, he gets re-elected every time without spending much on the cost of running - he is just well known and very popular.

    I never knew there was a "fashion area" downtown.

    This is a great line:

    What about:

    That takes a serious pair of onions. Does anyone here have (or want to have for that matter) enough pink and green to last them a week?

    yuck, if he just brought it back a bit , like a more british chalk stripe suit it would be elegant. Instead it looks like an International Male ad.

    What the Hell does hizzoner have the pocket of that garish suit? It doesn't look like a square to me--maybe a couple of cigars in tubes?

    I'm guessing this means black places.

    He definitely has that whole Steve Harvey look going on. Steve Harvey collection, Stacey Adams, etc. I actually like the look, but you almost have to be a black guy to pull it off or you look like a wanna-be.

    Interesting article though the matching of colors gives it a costume like appearance.
