    I would advise any of those taken aback by Manton's OP to read his book, and then re-evaluate.

    At a minimum, read his post about Strauss and Machiavelli.

    Eh, what do you know about it. The last time I saw you, you didn't even look all that gay.

    Well, for the Collection of Sartorial Excellence I toned it down a little. But it's also me on the runway in Jared's avatar.
    We want evidence [​IMG] As for me, I know I am doomed already. As someone (don't remember who exactly) once told someone (about me), "he is not gay, he is just European" [​IMG] P.s. hey mack11211, is there some secret conspiracy going on here trying to dissuade all us poor saps from proper CBD (or BCD) to the evils of colour and patterns by listing things like this or this? P.s. 2 you should donate this relatively tasteful article to Conne!

    I remember many suits that looked like the one in the beginning of this thread at the long gone Krass Bros. store on South St. in Philadelphia but I never recall anyone ever making assumptions about a person's sexual orientation over wearing one. My uncle actually had a couple similar suits and would also wear vibrant ties like this and he as far as I know was never openly mistaken for being gay. I find it very offensive to support such stereotypes about gay or straight people based on dress or hairstyle as they eventually lead to prejudices.

    [​IMG] "You call me gay in a dream, you better wake up and apologize." And don't even suggest this to Mr. Blonde or there'll be a Steeler's Wheel inspired bloodbath.
    Notice how there is a man coming from behind who appears to be bareback riding him, yes? Gay. A straight man would never let himself be so closely followed by another male. Especially while wearing a black suit (which is mostly gay) during the daytime.

    mancrush: A hetrosexual man admiring another man to an extreme in a non-romantic or sexual way, more having an intense desire to be that other man. (urbandictionary) Lucky for you, according to popular definition, this is not gay act. You are still straight. Please don't be disappointed.

    Even if I really feel a strong desire to actually wear the pictured outfit?

    You mean sort of a sartorial equivalent of Ed Gein [​IMG] ?

    Only if you want to wear it simultaneously with Manton.
