Rob sent me a few funny articles/advertisements today that I can't resist sharing. To give you some context as to why Rob might share these with me, Rob has very specific fashion rules by which he lives. I agree with him most of the time (with the exceptions being double-breasted jackets and pointy-toed shoes for women - I approve and he does not) but am really just fascinated by how fastidious he is about dressing. The first article Rob sent today was a helpful article from a WSJ affiliate about how to dress for work. The article focuses on first-year analysts, but it applies across the board to men and women (it addresses both) in the professional workforce. It should seem obvious, but I am constantly surprised by what people wear to work.
Just after Rob sent that article, the hilarious advertisement from Bonobos (pictured to the left) popped into my inbox. Rob is a firm cargo shorts hater and I have to agree... besides, what do men put in all of those pockets? Nothing. Plus, I love an advertisement with a bit of cheek.
Finally, the article mentioned above has a link to a helpful chart from the Effortless Gent for men who have trouble knowing what color shoes and belt they ought to wear with a particular suit or pair of pants. Pass this along to a man in your life who is always asking you which shoes he should wear (or doesn't ask but perhaps you wish he did).
