    With the exception of logo shirts I agreed with the entire presentation. I thought she made a lot of sense.

    I like t-shirts will music gear logos and I like the occasional silly/nerd logo. Logo shirts are fun. Sheldon Cooper knows how to rock a t-shirt.

    First of all, this is ridiculous: I have two pairs of the dreaded dress-shoes-with-tennis-shoe-soles and I've had several compliments on them from women, including my wife, who loves them. Some of these things make sense, but come on with the whole idea of it all.

    Secondly, if a man made a video like this for women, the entire internet would go up in flames about how sexist and horrible men are.



    Sigh.

    I totally agree with every point that she made. I was all set to hate on this chick. Then, I realized she was coming from a constructive place. I have a friend who sports those dress shoes with the sneaker bottoms. It would be so much easier to tell him what a dork they make him look like if he wasn't also my boss! Anyway, IMO if you are guilty of any of the 21 things she mentioned, you would improve your image by changing them to the recommendations she made. BTW, I don't think you should limit the effects of these things to love interests. Looking more cool helps in all aspects of life. It doesn't cost any more to look your best.

    There's a picture of me floating around in a robin's egg blue leisure suit with platform shoes and sporting mutton chops. Thank god it's the only such photo I'm aware of.

    If ANYONE including Prince walked up to me on the street looking like that, I don't think "avoid" would quite cover it.

    Fashion is the art of doing something even more stupid, than you did yesterday, and maintaining a pace that simply blows everyone's mind.

    You can't easily criticize something that is ever changing, ephemeral, whimsical and way beyond forecasting.

    What I find to be ironic is that pretty much all of her advice is aimed at bucking the trends of fashion and favoring tried and true looks.

    Y'know, I just think it's great you guys can get out of bed unaided. After that everything's a bonus, surely.

    How about some quotes?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.”
    — attributed to both Gore Vidal and Orson Welles
    “Kitsch is the inability to admit that sh/t exists”
    ― Milan Kundera
    “Elegance is refusal.”
    ― Coco Chanel

    “Forget about style; worry about results. ”
    ― Bobby Orr

    “Some of the worst mistakes in my life were haircuts”
    ― Jim Morrison

    “Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.”
    ― Henry David Thoreau
    “To achieve style, begin by affecting none.”
    ― E.B. White

    “Even on the most solemn occasions I got away without wearing socks and hid that lack of civilization in high boots.”
    ― Albert Einstein

    “Whatever does not pretend at all has style enough.”
    ― Booth Tarkington

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This last one isn't specifically about fashion or style, but I liked it.

    “There is no expedient to which a man will not resort to avoid the real labor of thinking.”
    ― Joshua Reynolds

    Well, summer is officially here! Took the scissors and gave the threads hanging down on the cut-offs a good trim and at the same time cut the sleeves off a couple of my favorite NO LOGO T-shirts...

    Clean tennis shoes and I am good to go! No violations here!

    I cannot disagree with her.
    I was prepared to hate the video, but she's right.
