I remember the when my dad was a young junior executive I don t even know if companies have

So he didn t have any money. But he still dressed well enough to rise rapidly through the ranks of his company Mikko Rantanen Womens Jersey , to be invited to dinner at the boss house, and to be invited to join or even lead a number of professional organizations.

Sure, he was a great guy, and obviously really able to do what it was he was paid to do. But and it must be said there were a lot of other capable, personable guys in that company s junior executive program. What was the difference that made my dad the Boy Genius that everyone wanted to promote?

This was the day of the leisure suit. The guys who wore them like the guys who wore satin trimmed track suits were actually the stylish ones, the ones out ahead of the pack. They were, frankly Gabriel Landeskog Womens Jersey , far out and funky and that was considered a good thing.

Think about it. Back then, all the cool friends wore leisure suits. Jack Tripper s friend, Larry, wooed the chicks back at the Regal Beagle with his light green and burnt orange polyester twosomes. Bobby Ewing, J.R. s younger and arguably better looking brother, wore leisure suits in both polyester varieties and denim varieties invariably with a Stetson. The entire cast of Welcome Back, Kotter with the exception of Principal Woodman wore leisure suits.

Come to think of it Nathan MacKinnon Womens Jersey , until the later 1970s, when the leisure suit became a joke and gave way to the ubiquitous blazer and jeans, all the cool guys wore leisure suits. If you look back at advertisements from the era, you ll even see leisure suits in black wash and wear suitable for funerals and weddings.


In fact, if you look back to television shows, only the square guys wore traditional, tailored men s suits. Of course Matt Duchene Womens Jersey , in many cases these suits were of the hideous, nondescript gray polyester remember that color? It was almost a pinky gray, if such a thing is possible. Not commanding. Not memorable.

But still....but still. Those were the guys who were successful. In a high school in which the only teacher actually ever seen was Gabe Kaplan, it made sense that he was eventually promoted to principal (of course you didn t know that; nobody watched the show for that many episodes). But in the Real World (the real Real World, not the MTV one), the only thing that people would have said about Mr. Kotter in the Teacher s Lounge is, Did I ever tell you about that goofy ass teacher who is teaching the Sweathogs?

And back to J.R. Sure Matt Nieto Jersey , he was a manipulative bastard, and sure, he got shot. As an aside, I don t remember Who Shot J.R., though I do remember that Bobby was dead for a year and they had a funeral and then he came back and it was all a dream but they never told the people on Knot s Landing who went to his funeral that it was a dream, and they mourned his memory until they got cancelled. But back to J.R. he was the epitome of power (possibly the guy that Donald Trump emulates) and he was rich an powerful and he got the ladies, as they may have said back then Nail Yakupov Jersey , if they weren t saying he got the girls or the babes.

And he wore real suits.

Granted, no one wears leisure suits anymore. However, it s a really good example of stupid things people wear because a lot of other people wear them. If you re baffled by the popularity of the leisure suit, then be baffled by just about everything else that men wear today that s not classic.

Because classic is what gets you to the finish line, with the big guys and the yachts and the wives who haven t let themselves go. Or at least the salaries that allow you to buy a new sofa when the dog does something unspeakable to the old one.

The secret: two suits. Dark gray charcoal and dark blue. If you only have two suits, you don t need to venture into the land of brown or light gray or other colors. A variety of shirts white, light blue J.T. Compher Jersey , striped blue and white and a variety of ties a couple of red or burgundy, yellow or gold.

Shoes and belt should be black. Buy a belt with a silver buckle, and a simple, elegant watch in a silver tones metal. All of these classic items can be worn before dark and after dark.

And while cufflinks might seem to be a bit of extra bling the plain truth is that they are basics. They hold your cuffs together, for Pete s sake! Button down shirts, as convenient as they are and with the button cuffs they normally sport are actually casual wear. Who knew? They re a little preppy, but not anything that can be worn after 6 so why bother until you have the basics covered?

The general rule of wearing men s jewelry is to match metal with metal. Oh Carl Soderberg Jersey , that s not what the men s magazines say but tell me one CEO of a major company who s wearing a purple suit with a bomber jacket and harem pants...

OK, none. So listen to me, dammit!

Since we re just starting out, you don t have a good belt with a brass or gold buckle yet. So make your cufflinks silver. The good news is that sterling silver is considerably less expensive than gold, but just as tasteful. You can choose a simple engravable cufflink with your monogram, or a simple initial. Or pick a classic tubular or sterling knot. There are even cufflink lockets which will score you major points with whomever you choose to immortalize in photo wrist reachiness...your spouse, your children Blake Comeau Jersey , your boss, Jessica Alba...

The basics but the classic basics. Your foundation, the rock upon which you shall build your wardrobe. Start now, and look good for the new year.

Most of the people always wonder about where they can get low interest rate credit cards. Because of high rate of interest on credit cards, it is not always possible for the person to handle the interest fees at this height. Thus, dealin.
