changing course and dressing up
The question is, if a loud shirt with dragons on it makes my wife laugh when she thinks of me on TV, what makes her ooh and aah with delight? Gents, no way around it, a TIE and maybe a jacket. When I was a prep school teacher ten plus years ago, I wore jacket and tie every day, as was required, then tossed that stuff in the back of the closet and forgot about it. BUT, chicks dig a well dressed man I need to remember, so I can dress up once a decade. And my mom probably expects it, and OH YES she will be watching. After digging through the back of one closet and finding the wad of ties I chose the cute Brooks Brothers number with elephants. It is a terrific blue. My wife will be sad to see my Hermes ties not very neatly folded into their orange box at the bottom of this pile.
last question: jacket or not, and then which one?
