What-ho, what-ho, what-ho! Well, at least to any readers who may be left, and to any new readers who may now be enthralled with and/or irritated by this venerable website, I say a hearty What-ho!
So, where have I been? Looking for work, finding part-time work, losing part-time work, trying to keep life going smoothly and merrily in this rather distressing situation, and working on a Master's Degree to help--God willing--relieve this distressing situation. And all the while being well-dressed.
But enough of that. "What," you're wondering, "is the style news?" Well, you may have noticed that being well-dressed in society at-large seems to have taken a few steps back. If I were a politician, I would sponsor a bill that would cause any man between the ages of 18 and 192 to be--well, I don't know just now, but it would be something uncomfortable--for dressing like a kid. Men who are 18, 52, or 67 years old should not, should not, should not be wearing shorts, flip flops and a baseball hat unless they're at the blooming beach, or other swimming venue. I don't know about you, but any time I see one of these fellows with their date or wife, I want to go over to the wife and say, "You're son is so well behaved." For goodness sakes, men, be men! Dress like men! Stop showing us your lousy legs, knees and feet. Perhaps, however, the baseball hat is constricting their brains.
Well, let's leave those fellows to themselves for now, if they can be responsible on their own for five minutes. For Spring/Summer, one of the great combinations for us lads is grey flannel pants (or similar material--grey dress pants, let's just say), and a dark blue blazer. But when it's too hot, who wants the blazer? There are two options:
1) Grey flannel pants and a dark blue polo shirt, with the usual brown dress shoes.
2) Dark blue pants with a medium to dark grey polo shirt, with the usual brown shoes.
For some reason, I prefer the latter.
So, get out there, and dress--well, dress like it's 1912 or so, can't go wrong much there. Ah, no, there were no polo shirts then, but you get the gist. I hope women do the same--a woman is at her prettiest when she's not dressed like she's headed for the red-light district. I'm serious--from top to floor, be covered. That way we can see your beautiful face and personality without distraction. When marriage comes along, you and your husband can distract each other then. At any other time, modesty and good style should be the watchwords of ladies and gentlemen.
