Dealing with Suit Salesmen

March 12, 2012.

Damn, there are some sly techniques to watch out for. No wonder people don’t like salesmen. We all think we are immune to manipulation, but without education you can’t be immune. You can only be oblivious.

Ignorance is bliss

Basically, an overly philosophized answer to the age old question, “why are you so dressed up?” Because you reached the point where you cannot dress up. This is basically preaching the the choir and a warning for newbies.

Toronto is Unsophisticated

February 24, 2012.

I had to write about what I was observing. People will usually claim their American small town is the worst-dressed because those people just wear a T-shirt and shorts. In Toronto people wear suits, but that doesn’t make things any better.

Menswear is for nerds

February 23, 2012.

What I wanted to cover in this nerd article, but didn’t get a chance to, is actual examples that make clothing nerdy. It seems the more simply someone tries to dress, the more boyish they end up looking. It’s not clip-on ties and pocket protectors that make someone dress nerdy. You can even screw up a T-shirt and jeans like Napoleon Dynamite. Specifically it’s the moon boots with the loose-fitting graphic T-shirt. The dated jeans don’t help either.

You don’t have to try to look nerdy. It’s the default style.

Detailed examples will be covered in a separate article.

I didn’t want this to be like those other men’s style blogs that debut with 2 articles. I think I am finding my voice and direction. There are now 10 published articles and many more in draft. I still need to upload the images for the articles. Right now the focus is on the technical side before getting back to content.

I’m of the mindset that a men’s style site is useless without pictures, and so many are just walls of text. Spring will be commited to creating original photos. I’d like this site to be equal parts instruction and inspriation.
