I've become a daily visitor since discovering this forum. This past weekend, I noticed the effect SF has had on me. While attending a formal ceremony at my daughter's school, I was constantly distracted by the multitude of style offenses. Some of my thoughts: - Pants too long - Why don't guys tie a proper knot? - You should've at least ironed the collar - Pants too short...and those are ugly socks - Wow - I need to introduce him to my tailor - I've never seen shoes like that...must do some research on SF - Did you buy the jacket on your way over? The thread holding your vent together is dangling... Thanks to many of you for sharing great information -- I've enjoyed learning more about the construction, care and coordination of mens clothing. My savings account thanks you less since I realized how inadequate my wardrobe is and have begun replacing the worst offenders, especially shoes. [I'm the proud new owner of AE and AS shoes -- yes, goodyear welted and freshly polished before wearing -- and search diligently on B&S and eBay for my next acquisition] I look forward to contributing more in the future.
