Work With Me Here...

Normally I am a Brooks Brother's off-the-rack kind of dresser, but last week I picked up a few Gianluca Isaia Napoli three-button side vent suits and I was in love. Who knew that suits had real working buttons on the sleeves?

With tomorrow being a big day and all, I think I will take one for a spin, yes? Coupled with a gorgeous Brioni herringbone shirt with French/Freedom cuffs, understated silk tie, and clean underwear I am ready to Rock n Roll!
PS: Don't worry, I don't use "product" on my face and still prefer my Old Spice speedstick and cologne, but I did retire the brylcreem a few years back. ;)

Fashion don't?

Well, Fitz. First of all, get rid of Old Spice. That has to go. That cologne was back in my grandfather's time. You should get Paul Sebastian. That will take care of the female jurors and make the male jurors jealous. About your new suit, all I can say is "knock em dead." You did well coordinating your wardrobe...

For courtroom attire, I prefer a dark blue doublebreasted suit with a white shirt and navy blue solid tie with a stick pin that is red and red hankerchief in the front breast pocket of the suit. You did good with the underwear. Navy blue socks and black Oxford. Then, you are dress to kill because you always have the knowledge, you the facts, smoking gun, now you have the Johnny Cochran look. If the crime fits, don't acquit!

Don't go too 5th Avenue. It's inside what counts and how you express it and get it to the outside. Look conservative and well groomed and you'll be fine. Don't get too glittery.

That being said, I understand the feeling of finally finding a great suit or jacket. It hangs beautifully and makes you feel more you. I just didn't realize that "real" men have those experiences but hey....look at Beckham - he's a fashion horse and very easy on the eyes as well. And it works for him....I do beleive you're turning into a ....METROSEXUAL!

Brylcream??? I had no clue what that is. I just someone what brylcream is. Fitz, that is way bakc in my grandfsther with Old Spice. My advice to you, Fiz, is you need professional advice from the blogger from male and female (only those that can give an professional advice). Glad you got rid of that product. Fitz, come into the 21 century of products. But, professionally, your choice of wardrobe is much better than the wardrobe that your wore on Oct. 28th. Jackie is right. You will have the Johnny Cochran look.

My dad always got Old Spice on Christmas, and soap on a rope. I love Old Spice because of that, and I love the picture of the boat on the Old Spice Logo. It always conjured up places in my mind that were quite different from Chicago, IL. I didn't think that they still sold that stuff though. Wow! Does it smell any thing like old spices? I just can't remember...

It smells rugged like my Irish Spring soap.

I would do more than sweep office for Bugs, or start mashing keyboards at the local hotspots, or on cell phones, hell IR can recreate from the Vibrations from the office windows that voices impinge on it reading the convo inside, or FILTER it.

3 Dimensions, as one,
Spinning the web of Life and Light,
as light of Train
end of tunnel
It approaches, Death seems Inevitable,
it passes, we turn,
light approaches again
our words, our lights,
our actions the cargo.
Coming, faster...
Nowhere to go....
Again, and Again
to sea, to sky, to sun..
light to dark it runs
forward to back
back to forward
Creation does run
also in reverse
our words, our thoughts,
our spirit
to this to that,
faster faster
forth and back
A blur, then Chaos, Order,
Focus, and thought.
thought for think
and think to seek

Harriet, I am eying some Zegna shoes, but who can afford $600 a pair ?

Secret Santa - hint hint :D

Fitz you have to start thinking cologne now. Use the Irish spring soap but remember you are now representing us your DOJ scouts so we would like you to look like the man we know. Its normal for guys not to be to much into dressing up. My sons still call me for advice as they aren't married yet. Its ok.

Who is turning you on to Zegna shoes? I guess this must be your way of relaxing before the big day. Hey, I don't even know what Zegna shoes are but they SOUND expensive. Like the male equivalent of Manolo Blahniks (probably misspelled)which I don't own, by the way.

When people have nothing to worry about they worry about how their FEET look. Well indeed, you are a man of mystery and the BIG TIME is ROARING towards you loudly. Keep your feet on the ground (whether they be Zegna's or PF Flyers) and unlike me, keep your head out of the clouds. We are the people, the salt of the earth - the earthy people and most of us would not spend $600 on a pair of shoes even if we could. That is for Condi and Coulter and Sarah Jessica Parker...Sarah Jessica can be excused because she was paid to wear them!

Really, who is turning you on to Zegnas? Lady or Metrosexual?

Karl Rove could wear Gianluca Isaia Napoli three-button side vent suits and Zegna shoes and he'd still look like the plappster that he is. He is beyond salvation - he is toatal plapp - even in his Jaguar he is more plappy.

You are not a plapster so don't srry tto much avbout it. I had a dream about John Malkovich the other night. It may seem like a non-sequitur but it was a good dream. Even he can be accused of being plappy and he is quite the Metrosexual. Make sure your pants are never in the crack of your behind. That is most plappy.

I know how important it is too look good and feel good as it adds to confidence, but gotta tell ya, with your integrity, brains devotion to seeing justice could buy it off the rack at the Salvation Army and those of us who see you for what you represent...won't even notice what you're wearing.

Well, sir I sure you will look so good in that Italian suit, but lose the Old Spice. That reminds me of my dad.

I just saw the picture of Karl Rove. He looks pretty awful in his suit. He looks like a fat roll a dough! He definitely needs to go on a diet!
