Well men, today was a joyous day in my 'menaissance'.

I went out into the local thrift/charity stores in the village and bought myself an arsenal of smart clothes.
This included a brand new navy blue blazer, a brand new (with tags) sports jacket, a very smart Italian suit jacket, a pair of brand new trousers and a fantastic shirt (with tags).

Coupled with my new DE razor and blades, a splash of 'Old Spice' (which my wife loves) it has been a splendid morning.

However, perhaps the greatest result was not a purchase but the discussion I had with my wife about what 'manliness' means, about dress code and manners and she is 'cock a hoop' about the whole idea. Indeed she has re-examined what it means to be feminine. She confided in me that she finds that women's fashions have an androgynous leaning to them and that she would prefer the style of the 40's or even 20's. I was heartily delighted to hear this and she has set about rebuilding her own wardrobe.

This site is a truly wonderful thing and I hope that the message is spread across the globe!

"Sure, but you're still being exclusive when it suits you (not that there's anything wrong with that)."

"Usually only spam, but every once in a while (no, not often). If he was online, I'd have discussed with him first and asked him to delete it."

"No, you can prefer something, while still not rejecting another. I prefer olive skinned women, but I have dated black women and very fair skinned women. I don't necessarily exclude them by preferring something else. "

"Y'all delete comments? Often, or just when I see one of you post that you have?"
