This is a quote from a discussion in the year 3 and 4 forum about dress codes, particularly the displeasure with ironing dress shirts.

"Dry cleaning? You ought to try polyester shirts. I won't buy a dress shirt or dress pants that aren't labeled as "wrinkle free", or at least 40% polyester. I purchased a few 100% cotton dress shirts in the past and just found they never were unwrinkled again after removing them from the package, regardless of how much I ironed them. With the 40% polyester "wrinkle-free" shirts, I still iron them, but they definitely stay wrinkle-free for longer."

We'll certainly never see that statement here.

My mother has told me that ironing dress shirts is just too much trouble, and that at some point I'll just have to switch to JC Penny's no-iron shirts.

Uh...yeah.

(I wonder if Chuck is going to have a no-iron in the new shirt collection...)

Doesn't Eton do a wrinkle free cotton shirt?

I read the following passage on a website the other day (this is just about verbatim): "A lot of people think that you can't wear black shoes with chinos. They are wrong. For business casual, a pair of black lace ups look very sharp with khaki chinos -- just look at your local army recruiter." (No offense at the military intended here)

Somewhere, LA Guy is having a coronary.

My father--ex-military--has made the exact same argument.

Actually, it is well known that doctors are the worst dressed professional class people there are -
Agreed.
All I ask is that they look neat and clean.

I have to second LA Guy's opinion. My brother does look ridiculous in those embroidered shirts. However, my sister-in-law buys clothes for me as well and I can safely say that she does a lot better job on me.

Alan...

I am pretty thick skinned.

I took Policy's assertion that I was a gay high school dropout and laughed.

Alan - we don't joke about synthetics around here... that's just not funny.... ever

I was hoping he'd throw on the short sleeved black suit jacket and a Yankees hat and rock the Usher.

Hope I don't offend anyone, but at least from my experience researching pre-law and law school forums during my (now-abandoned) application attempts, I found that the population of those boards seemed to consist primarily of the most gigantic tools and gunner-types (definitely a big factor in my re-evaluting my law school plans was, "I don't want to be surrounded by these people"). I imagine the med school boards are infested with analgous people, and that the sampling of those kind of forums tends to be the most "off" crowd, as opposed to the more well-adjusted people I know who are doing professional degree programs. For you software/IT types, think Slashdot for med students. I bet that explains a good deal of it.
