Is Patrick Bateman's morning routine actually any good?
While the verdict’s still out, people have been telling me that I look sprightlier and more youthful. And I too can do about a thousand now. Either way, it definitely beats waking up 20 minutes before you have to be at work, snatching a bagel from the bodega and “exercising” by pumping your arms a bit more vibrantly than usual as you desperately try to catch the train.
contrast collar oxfords worn casually. yay or nay?
Unless you are Gordon Gekko or some other Master of the Universe, the contrast collar is a telltale sign of some douchebag who attended a large state school, joined Alpha Kappa Psi and proceeded to watch Boiler Room and American Psycho so many times that he actually believes he will land a job as a broker at the apocryphal JT Marlin someday as long as he showers with a water-activated gel cleanser and honey-almond body scrub.
I went a little overboard there. While I generally do not like the contrast collar (mostly because of the abuse it has sustained over the years by Know-Nothing young professionals described above), I actually have no problem with white on soft blue, but only in the strictest of professional settings.
Edit: While I love to disagree with Lawrence, his reply sounds tempting. Stay tuned for my review of ROTM AW ‘11, including the contrast collar, when it goes live.
ahem, pretty much any look in the most recent style blogger post is calling your name
While you are (mostly) correct, I think I’m going to put a moratorium on the Style Blogger bashing for a while, too, out of fear that I would have to rename my Tumblr to Nice Try, Dan if he doesn’t get his act together soon.
