That might require the OP to actually think, rather than rant.

Sorry, cannot agree. Pleats, cuffs, and back pockets, thank you. Long sleeve blue shirt (button down). I even go to jazz clubs and movies dressed like that. I may throw a leather vest over the shirt after hours. Works for me.

I don't like them on me at all. On others, they're fine.

Oh, and pleated front pants are just awful. Flat front only.

This is not the commercial and how it is presented.


It is not *You* sound hideous
It is *SHE* sounds hideous


which puts the entire commercial in the proper context.

I wear khaki pants, button-down Oxford, and a blazer. I seem to "get-by."
Other days you'll see me in jeans and a polo, or cargo shorts and a polo. No slave to fashion here.

It's just you.

Don't like 'em, don't wear 'em. It's as simple as that.

Khakis look nice, but only if you wear a colored shirt with it. It looks awful with white, black, and brown.

Rules for khakis, light tops, dark shoes. Slmmer people look better in them. Light weight is best.
