Like Brooks Brothers in clothing , Esquire has changed from a publication that epitomized the standards of style to a vehicle for marketing trendy mens "fashion". As for the Today Show, I stopped watching it after the departure of J. Fred Muggs. The winner, Dan, whom I only laid eyes on yesterday in this Forum is undoubtedly a phoney. His "get up" with that Rugby Shirt said it all— Ralph Lauren manque′. I suppose that he wears two Lacoste shirts at a time with their collars up. Then the bio information: An extensive and expensive wardrobe right out of college with no real means of support. That's not American. That's "Old Europe". You, on the other hand, have worked hard to attain high achievement, culminating with graduation from one of the most prestigious law schools. As you said, you didn't grow up filthy rich, etc. That would seem to need further elucidation. I do not wish to pry. But not many law students can afford to indulge in bespoke Rubinacci, after prior disillusionment with the Oxxford "custom" program. I have a close family member who was worth about $5 million ten years ago in his mid 20s. He wasn't in law school however. He was in Technology. And then there's the lottery.
Stupid boy, Pike.....

Foo:

Did the five of you all exchange info or anything and promise to get together sometime? Did you have any downtime for getting to know each other? Just curious.

You could team up and be "Str8 Eye for the Str8 Guy", assuming you are all str8.

Of course, Moo and lactose would certainly mix.

Neither did I know of this acronym. Then again ... I'm not a savvy as you about such things. You are "talking" to one who had to look up "teh" the first time he noticed you using it. After all, he was certain you weren't misspelling it. Of course, this was likely a tad more than obvious.

I tell you RJman ... I am truly thankful for the various urban and internet dictionaries offering help with acronyms and Internet spellings. I'm also thankful for the helpful "up to speed" PM's I get here.

That said, Trepanier is a walking cliche in American style. Prizes were way to generous for the exhibits put on. At least Foo looks like he knows - really - what bespoke style is.

Great job Foo! Maybe next year.....
I think New York Ranger and I (semifinalists) could replace 2 of the finalists.

Most definitely. I couldn't agree more.
