What a specimen of a 21 year vintage I am. :) tehe

What it means to be a man:

I think being a man means being honest in all you do, and always striving to be better. Being knowledgeable about the local and global affairs. Having an educated opinion, standing by it, and always being able to rethink it. About being passionate about life, your interests, your family and friends and your gal. Being a man means living life, laughing, and loving. These are The Things I see, live, do, think, read, watch, love, like, want and more.

Cheers, Jared

*Jacket (Not) Required* An Article from WSJ

This article is an exploration in the ways in which dressing up, or down, has changed over the past 30 or more years.  Specifically focusing on restaurants and clubs that formerly had a dress code which required jackets and ties.

One of my favorite lines from the article is as follows from Gay Talese, the iconic men's wear writer and well-dressed gentleman.

Mr. Talese does concede that's he's not necessarily aligned with the times. "Now I'm an old guy, a retro fellow, maybe even stuffy. But dressing conscientiously is exalting in the act of being alive. When you go out on the town, it's an act of celebration…that you're here."
 Check it out.
