so this morning my wife notices I have a package to take to the post office, and asks me what it is. I say "I bought a persian lamb hat to send to a man I met on the internet - and he will then send me pocket squares". when she stops laughing, she says "and you don't want our son to play tennis or waterski because those are "effeminate' sports? doesn't it strike you that trading accessories over the internet is a tad effeminate?"

not complaining, mind you, but I thought that I would share.


anybody else get dissed by their SO over style?

I played tennis in the offseason from ice hockey. Babes play tennis. Lesson learned.

on topic, the gf doesn't knock me for "style stuff" ... I've purchased her plenty of clothes and shoes (god damn manolo blahnik's) that she tends to let it pass.

My wife just rolls her eyes when I get a package in the mail. It's good that she's there to notice and disapprove mildy, or I'd probably be out of control.

That's a hilarious story, GT.

Yeah, the missus does give me a hard time sometimes. Especially if there are photos involved. Doubly so if they're photos of me (rather than, say, a pair of cufflinks).

Especially when I recently ordered a pair of shoes and had to return them (to the UK--ouch).

+1 Lady C is kind about it but lets me know when I am going a little nutty.
