The Clothes Make the Man

Check me out. I must say I look damn good today. I'm dressed for the company Christmas party later this morning. Dressing up somehow makes me feel so clean and new. It used to be in our office, all the guys (yeah, all six of us) had to wear a shirt and tie every day. I was famous for my offbeat ties. I've got over 50 ties and none of them are really normal. Then from May to September, we were allowed to dress a more casual look. Khaki slacks and golf shirts and that sort of thing. Well then, at the end of September this year, the Corporate heads in all their wisdom decided to extend the casual business dress code indefinitely. Hey, fine with us. Doesn't take so long to get dressed in the morning if you don't have to worry about ironing your shirts and picking out a tie. So now we've gotten used to seeing each other at the office in casual dress and it seems pretty special for everyone to get dressed up. Down south they'd say I was in my Sunday Go To Meetin clothes. Dark blue, wool blend, double breasted suit with a lighter blue pinstripe. Charcoal grey shirt and a silk tie in black, grey, white and burgundy. Wing tip burgundy Florschiem shoes. Hair in a ponytail hanging half way down my back. Ooooh I'm good. Sound pretty full of myself don't I? I'm in a good mood even though the weather is crappy, I'm nearly broke and I probably didn't get the car loan I was applying for. I'm looking really good though and that's what matters right now.

It's cause I don't like to smile. They just took some shots of Deb and I holding each other in front of the fire place at the country club where we had the Christmas party. I'll get them scanned and post them. They made me smile in those...

Re: Nice suit.
Only time I wear this suit is weddings, funerals and Christmas parties. I guess I'll have to haul it to NC with me as Mom will probably want to go to Midnight Mass on Christmas.

OK every time I'm on LJ today I keep seeing that picture somewhere or another when I check my friends posts and I have to say it's worked. I suddenly feel the urge to give you all my money to invest however you want in the assumption that I won't end up in serious debt yet with excellent credit....DOOOOHHHH to late that'a already happened.

Re: Picture.
I guess I should wear this suit all the time then because I'm pretty much broke and my divorce made sure my credit sucks now. In fact, I think I'm going to have to go to a credit counselor soon and see if they can get some of my bills interest reduced. I'm a bad investment risk. It's the main reason Deb and I haven't married yet. I don't want there to be any chance she would inherit my debt.
