"I'm also in the Chicago area. Anything linen or light weight cotton works for summer as "dressy-casual". Generally speaking, summer colors are lighter and/or brighter but it's not critical if that's not your style."

"I'm having a difficult time understanding how one's shoes fall apart within a week so am unable to offer advice. I had a friend in high school who dragged his heels when he walked. It was so obvious that it was his fault his heels wore…"
"In addition to technique, the tie also matters. The wider the tie at the knot area, the easier. Experiment more with your technique such as going tighter or looser with the knots and see how that impacts things. Keep practicing, but if you…"
I've been shaving (with razor) my head for about 12 to 15 years. It's just part of who I am now. I get complements on occasion, directly or not. Often from short woman who clearly can't see the top/top-back of my head. I…"
