    Fetching and delightfully busty SF Junior Member iLookOK has a wonderful survey of the "scene" in Stamford, CT on her Image Blog.

    I think that I spy a few SF faces in the crowd...

    I think you could accurately describe me as the bastard child of the man in the red Hurley shirt and the unsightly fellow with long, greasy hair and white shirt standing directly in front of him.

    New only to those outside of Stamford. We are known for two things: asexuals and homosexual reproduction. Hedge funds are only a front for funding scientific research. I'll end this here for one of two reasons: 1) I've said too much 2) Things are already weird

    iLookOK's article on Stamford introduced me to the term FUPA, which I now plan to use liberally.

    She has an earlier entry on Stamford that you might enjoy, although it is bereft of photojournalism.

    The most common of all - pants that are at least 3" too long...usually seen pooling around black, rubber soled shoes

    Peak lapels.

    Why people choose this over notch is beyond me. It's ridiculous looking.

    Is this so egregious? I thought this was actually a good look. Especially for those situations that aren't so formal, and you don't want to be overdressed, and look like you're trying too hard.
    What does a guy do if he doesn't want a formal work briefcase? Is this when you guys like the Filson stuff?

    Oh, just remembered another one... never bring a man purse to a party

    Oh, and sunglass indoors

    Oh wait, unless you have a vest leave your fucking jacket on - sweaty pits and shirt riding up = nasty

    Oh, and another one, dont text at a party, go in the hall
