"I can understand your flabbergastedness (is that a word?). Obviously the people involved were not as well versed in the sartorial arts as we here at AoM.
However I would like to think I would take the high ground and give him the compliment that it…"
"I decided to start dressing well two years ago, in my Sophomore year of college. I started by gradually phasing out my high-school t-shirts. Then I started buying slim jeans and corduroys to replace the baggier jeans I used to wear. After that, it…"
"It is sad, but what gets me now Is for dressy occasions I see men in polos and khakis as if that was being dressed up. I consider that to be on the far side of casual, I miss the days where casual was a button up and slacks and it was not…"
"It's sad that our society can be so badly misinformed, and downright ignorant. Ah well, pay no mind to modern aesthetic conceptions of any kind, nor to the modern idea of having no rules of conduct based on traditions…"
"My interest was piqued so I smelled it in the store today. My best description would be that it smells like bathroom spray for the body. I couldn't wait to get the smell out of my nostrils. No offense but, IMHO, best used by 13-year old boys…"
"I think it's common for preferences to change- I know mine have. But in the case of English Leather, I think the formula has changed, if only slightly. Something that has been around as long as EL is likely to have been tweaked at least once."
"I used to wear English Leather a lot. After not using it for 20+ years, I tried it this week and didn't like it on me at all. Ditto for Grey Flannel. When I wore these, I lived in a much colder part of the country. Now I live in the southwest,…"
"I haven't come across the musk version of Royal Copenhagen; sounds like that may be lucky for me :)
On a different note I have tried English Leather recently and actually like it again. I'm glad I gave it another chance."
"Royal Copenhagen has been my primary scent for at least 20 years. That said, I despise Royal Copenhagen Musk. My friend was wearing it when we went shopping for suits. We were in the closed up car together for about an hour and I felt like I…"
"Liam, I'm sure you dress well, and it's a pleasure to me someone like you who pays attention to the way he dresses. I meet fewer and fewer men who seem to care about a tie knot style or wearing a tie clip, or (really) never have…"

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

"The closed primary system fucks Sanders again. Only a few of the following states are closed from here on out, but damn if it wasn't a beating. However, Sanders has pulled himself up into the mid 40s and has dragged Clinton down to the high…"
Hey, guys! I'm Nick. I've been reading AoM for a few years now, and I'm very excited to be diving into the community. I'm heading into my freshman year of college this fall, and if the good Lord is willing and the Creek don't rise, I'll be pursing a Civil Engineering degree. I hope to enjoy some great discussion with you guys and improve as a young man. See More

Just keep setting relevant goals and involve the people closest to you. I can relate to the 70 hour weeks, it sounds like you were a champion for your…"
