Posting this
1. because it's true
2. because it's written in a fairly amusing style

Highlights--

...if you believe that the monogram telegraphs your status, then you need to go out and get some more status. As it is, you are inviting people to notice your desire to be noticed.
A conspicuous monogram is classy only in the sense of business-classy, bespeaking time lost loitering at the SkyMall...
Which is by way of suggesting that the letter-writer reserve his questionable shirt for a loved one to lounge around the house in. Then procreate. After your offspring has passed through that phase of despising you all the time for no good reason, he or she will fondly figure out some way to use the shirt.
