It would be interesting for you and FNB to have an Actor's Studio style discussion about style.

yea i read this and made a different post about it. i definitely like the magazine. a lot of very practical advice for making small adjustments to improve your life. they choose interesting topics as well. i thought this article was cool but left me wanting a little bit more. but realizing that genetics have a lot to do with taste helps me understand why clothes matter to me. my grandfather was a clotheshorse so it makes sense. i used to think that my style and taste was something i picked up in highschool, but i guess it goes deeper than that. maybe we shouldn't be so critical of the sartorially challenged. they might as well be mentally retarded or something. can't really hold it against them.
not that i judge people's value based on how they dress but i do find myself making judgments from time to time.

Where does it raise the issue of genetics?

It doesn't, though genetics likely play a role in various ways.

Nice to see the thread come back. Where was the other post on the subject?
