    Got a new job working at Apple. No longer wears suits. Most of his blog posts are now cycling related. I assume he's moved onto a new phase in his life.

    furo, all your stupidity aside RE: jeans, your jackets are too short, and that's why they look off.

    Other than the fact that you have nfc what you're talking about, you're definitely one of the more annoying posters of late. You and Bhowie.

    It's like a troll patrol or something

    At this point I plow ahead assuming that no one is ever serious.

    For what it's worth, most people on SW&D look like douchebags to me. Many "fits" have a look-at-me quality that is immature, and represent an aesthetic that rejects elegance, refinement, and beauty. If those people picked women the way they picked their clothes, their better halves would be mean, ugly, and stupid. They often look like people mothers point out as what not to be, or losers Japanese superheroes dispatch by the dozen every week on TV. The good ones look more MC casual than anything else, and that, for better or for worse, seems to be the world's sartorial direction.

    Like many here, I'm bound by a business casual dress code at work. While suit and tie are not forbidden, wearing them would make me not fit in (but I sneak in good shoes). Is there a way to combine the best of MC and the best of SW&D to create a look that is sharp for both, yet accessible to the average joe? (My proportions are SW&D but I like MC. When full-blown, both MC and SW&D intimidate Joe Public today.)

    He's saying he's skinny/youthful (no offense to anyone intended).

    Its like how I look like I'm playing dressup because I'm the size of your average high school cross country kid.

    Here, here!

    I should only wish to amend your list of pejorative adjectives to include stinky, dirty, and dumb.

    Yeah those SW&Ders are hooligans, I bet they stay out past 9 and drank when they were underage. Definitely not mom approved.

    I may have been less than clear. The dress code is merely "Business Casual" with a specific call out that the everyday uniform (to which I have adhered daily since it's inception) is acceptable for this meeting. It is not, however, required.

    Fear not, mateys. There is a shirt as black as my heart packed in my garment bag...just in case.

    I would only like to point out to Teger that, when using 're', there is no need to trail it with a colon, like so: 'RE:'. True, that's how it appears in e-mail headers, but the colon is superfluous, and should only be used when making some sort of wry computer/crazy modern world/hey look ma we're on the internets reference, which I believe was *not* intended when calling furo a dumbass.

    Thank you.
