Steve B's new quote: A man's style in any art should be like his dress--it should attract as little attention as possible. Samuel Butler promps me to ask the question: How do you like your dress to be perceived? Peacocky, understated, blending in, etc...? I find myself these days dressing more peacockish, in order to stand out. I've begun to start looking for louder colors, edgier cut clothes, etc... The other day, I wore a BRIGHT green polo to work (at a golf course) and got at least 6 compliments. Not THAT crazy I know, but... Does anyone feel the trend in men's wear is moving toward this direction? How do the immensly popular candy striped shirts fit into this? They are so loud. I don't want anyone to confuse this with being distasteful. You can still peacock, but in a tasteful way. For example; a ticket pocket is mild peacocking, but albiet tasteful.
