A difference...

... I wore a black button-down shirt, and a pair of khakis today... normally, I wear a tee-shirt, a fleece, jeans, and boots... extreme low maintenance, that's me.... still, I like throwing on a suit from time to time just to break up the monotony..... the funny thing is, I got two compliments today... well, shit, people.. it's still just me...

...I've heard it said often the "the clothes make the man"... to a certain extent, this is true... for instance, you may be a total social reject, but throwing on a tux can turn the tide in your favor.... no one can screw up a tux.. it is damn near impossible... a tux is the perfect benchmark for turd polishing... the same goes for many of the armed services... drape the geekiest looking fucker imaginable in a set of Marine dress blues, and you've got it going on...

.. with women, it is different... jeans, a mini-skirt, or a wedding dress seem to all have the same effect... a beautiful woman is a sight to behold regardless of what she is wearing... their beauty just permeates their clothing.. and shines through.... they shine.. men just can't do that...

Bullshit So Far

Ummmm.... Wrong. I love a man in jeans and a t-shirt or jeans and a flannel shirt. Jeans, flannel shirt, hiking boots... he would have me at hello.

The tux is fine... once. Or every now and then. The suits get boring. I like a man to be himself. A man's man. Someone comfortable in their own skin, but can throw on the tux if he has to, and be just as comfortable. He is who he is.

But give me a man in jeans and a t-shirt or flannel shirt any day of the week. Then again maybe I feel this way since I'm 100% heterosexual female and I love men.

Damn straight, Eric! A woman can be wearing baggie sweatpants, big old t-shirt, hair all mussed, and she'll still be hot. Give her some glasses and a book and WOW!

And of course, beauty isn't just outside (although that never hurts). If a drop dead gorgeous woman has a nasty personality, I don't care what she's wearing, within seconds, you know she's an ugly woman. MHO anyway.

I'm betting the compliments were from women. I'm also betting you look good on a day to day basis. BUT....we women want you to know that we notice when you take a little extra time, that we appreciate it. Hence the compliments.

Clothes do make the man, and the woman. But I'll tell you want, while I do enjoy a man in a suit (goes to that made an effort thought) there is nothing like a pair of jeans, flannel shirt and baseball hat to get my motor running. WOW......throw in a pair of cowboy boots and I'm jello.

THEN if he can make decent conversation and has a sense of humor, well....let's just quote one of my favorite movies "Yea, I'm pretty much a sure thing." ;-)

Variety is the spice, darlin. Gotta mix it up. If we ALWAYS bummed out, you'd notice and appreciate a dressy day as well.

(Not that you typically bum out or anything. :D)

Give me a man in a kilt! Yeah baby! ( I become a drool, slack jawed idiot every year at the Scottish festivle.)
Or jeans, chaps & cowboy boots......yum
Hell, even a good smelling colone is enough to make my knees weak.

UPS Uniform ... throw the ugliest of men into one and they become instint hotties!

Nobody's hit it on the nose yet! It was the color that did it. Black is your color! Believe me! Get a black fleece, and I'll bet you'll get compliments, even wearing blue jeans.
...you're welcome!
