    So I went to Subway today for a Hoagy and a Salad (salad is for my wife).
    Suddenly I am faced with several employees who seem to be staring at me(watching, admiring, etc...). Then one woman tells me that I look like I steped out of the Twenty's. I think she was off by a decade or two, but nonetheless. Several patrons then started to take notice. I started to hear comments like "I could never pull off that look, but he looks good." and "Where did you find that hat?" and "How do you get your moustache to stay in that position?"

    I really did not try to dress vintage this morning. I have on dungarees, light blue an white tailess shirt open at the collar. My new B! Wear grey herring bone 8 panel. And, of all things black Chuck Taylor Converse All Stars. To top it all off, I had my moustache waxed and curled (I use Brother's Love Moustache Wax from Germany is had the best holding ability I have found).

    Quite an enjoyable experience I must say.

  3. I agree we need to see this look. I think I like it by the description though. :) The moustache is the most interesting sounding. ;)

    Regards to all,

    Makes me want to put on the ole' swing suite and go out for a bite. People dress like trash these days. All the world loves a sharp dressed man. At least one of another era. Now I'm craving food too. :hamburger

    Photos forthcoming... I don't have a digital, so I either have to borrow one or get my neighbor to take a picture of me. I guess I could get a regular photo and somehow scan it into a file or something. I'll have to ask one of my kids to do it for me though. My eight year old might know how to do it. :)

    I agree Brad...as we say in the south...Pure D Trash. The whole sweaty ball cap, dirty torn tee shirt, baggy shorts, thing is getting real old. And the way girls dress...don't get me started. Hell, I can't even go to the mall without losing my religion these days. Thank the Lord my daughter has inherited my conservative views, about dress and life in general.
