You might be an Igent

1.If your new Alan Flusser book is sitting on top of your old Alan Flusser book;
2.If you get all dressed up with nowhere to go but online;
3.If you look for jobs that are business formal;
4.If you have to decide between your Brigg or your Smith when it rains... and you post your dramatic decision online;
5.If you wonder if your kid's diapers have seven-fold construction;
6.If you have a favorite salesperson at the Off 5th at Franklin Mills;
7.If you tell your tailor you met fellow customers online;
8.If you pay $10 an issue for a magazine without people committing lewd acts inside it;
9.If you buy magazines about shoes and clothing in languages you can’t read;
10.If your suit would have cost more than your car if you hadn't bought it on 95% clearance;
11.If you like it, the lamb, but know brown is for farmer;
12.If you ask strangers to look at clothed pictures of you on the Internet;
13.If you ask other men to post selfies from the men’s room and are not a conservative politician;
14.If you've derived the function for making a chambray pattern.
15.If you know where the outlet centers are in countries you have never visited;
16.If you watch bad movies to comment about the clothes;
17.If you own one or more pocket squares with cats on them;
18.If you used to use the expression "pocket square" until you saw everyone else using it;
19.If you have gazed into the abyss, and it has gazed into you, and you wrote a clothing book about it;
20.If you drink espresso out of Limoges cups with 18th-century dandies on them;
21.If you think clothing “fora” have jumped the shark but hang around to talk about decor and food;
22.If you think your post count makes you part of the solution;
23.If you have ever used the words “suitings” or “shirtings,” (even correctly);
24.If you have unironically referred to yourself or someone else as a “sartorialist;"
25.If you get dressed up for a date with an iGent;
26.And if you laughed at these... you just might be an iGent.

Speaking of item 3 and item 15. Last year, I applied for a Field Engineering position primarily because it would send me periodically to Grottaglie Italy, just a short hop from the Neapolitan tailors.

Per item 22, I like to think my posts are part of the solution but the moderators have suggested otherwise.
