was he sitting on a booster seat?
You should have taken inspiration from the dinner rather than 'political economist'. Wouldn't it be boring if all food at the table is 1 color? Look at nature, deeply, like this noble gentleman, that would make you unboring
While this may all be correct, do you suspect that anyone he, or anyone he comes across in his day-to-day life cares, or even has the slightest remote understanding that his paisley tie lacks tonal variance, or that white shirt and white tie are wrong together outside of black tie? Sometimes I think you post such grandiose descriptions of correctness to impress Manton or something.
My good fellow, this is exactly what I said in my earlier posts.
No, I post those descriptions to be helpful. The outfit is ugly because it is ugly, not because any rules say so. I'm just explaining why.
It would save me a lot of time and effort to say "sux, bro."
I often disagree with Foo ... but NOT this time. His comments were spot on. Moreover, it was actually advice that could be used.
ask vox. i believe he was a champion of that phrase.
oh my !
srs tho - not pleased at the lack of feedback today. DONT MAKE ME RE-POST!
Like I said, the comments are correct.... but I doubt the guy cares. I bet he likes how he looks, and feels good. And 99/100 in the "real world" think so, too, I bet. All that matters.
Also, come on man, show the OneShoe Circle...
This is where you are so woefully wrong. Ninety-nine out of a hundred people have awful taste.
He may well like his look and feel good about it ... and 99/100 in the world may agree ... but that's no reason to lie and tell him he's truly well dressed. He's NOT.
Foo actually gave him advice that could help him. Foo has given advice that has helped countless people ... including you (whether or not you admit it).
I think it's the way Foo is able to turn opinion into fact to substantiate his advice that comes off as a bit rude. He means well, but it reads like a lecture instead of advice. Clothing style is all about opinion, not facts.
It remains opinion ... it's not fact. But it's a decent opinion and he expresses it with a degree of authority. Although I agree his sarcasm can be a bit over the top ... but that's my opinion ... not fact.
Separate names with a comma.
