Fashion Rules for Men – Part 2

The fiance scolded me after my Fashion Rules for Men post.  He thought I skipped the basics and was way too advanced.  He is right.  I ended up writing my list of pet peeves rather than general rules.  But come on, didn’t you love the rule about hair length?  Maybe he is just bothered that I did not get his thoughts before I pushed the publish button.  So here it goes.  His top 10 list.  Back to basics, boys!

  • Always match your shoes to your belt and match your socks to your pants.
  • Don’t wear the same pattern on the top and bottom.  Stripes on top means no stripes on your pants.
  • Wear clothes that fit.
  • Wear shoes that require polish.
  • Never wear a tie without a jacket.*
  • Don’t be scared of the iron.
  • Never own a jewel toned button down shirt.
  • Know the difference between a half break and a full break.
  • If your facial hair grows in patches, have a meeting with your razor daily.
  • If you are under 30 and you part your hair, realize you have your retirement years to do so.

Hopefully you learned something.

*Unless you are a hipster and know how to buy the appropriate tie and shirt to pull off this sort of thing.

As we bring 2010 to a close, it is only appropriate that we take a look back at the top TPJ posts of 2010.  I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my life and adventures with you.  This is just the beginning.  I have a feeling 2011 is going to be a very big year.

  2. The Dark Side
  3. Skankasaurus Ex
  4. Top 10 songs you are not supposed to love

You know Philip is a special kind of man when he more than doubled the traffic of Skankasaurus Ex.

Candy Connoisseur

I have an obnoxious sweet tooth.  I don’t like the fancy desserts.  Too adult for my taste.  My guilty pleasure is candy.  ALL candy.  With Halloween upon us, it is only appropriate that I create a candy top ten list.  I took a candy quiz this morning and I was rated a candy connoisseur and a calorie expert.  Clearly I know what I’m talking about.  I suppose I am also aware of how many calories I consume when I raid the office candy dish 3 times a day.

  1. Rolos
  2. Resse’s Pieces
  3. Candy Corn (all shapes and sizes, but I prefer the corn)
  4. Sour Patch Kids
  5. Jelly Beans (must be Jelly Belly)
  6. Tootsie Rolls (the little ones)
  7. Sixlets (I recently rediscovered these)
  8. Twizzlers
  9. Swedish Fish
  10. Gum Balls (all kinds)

I am putting this out there so I can be held accountable.  I am giving up candy during the month of November.  Please don’t confuse candy with desserts.  Baby steps, people.

Watch for an upcoming post about Halloween parties and my costume!  I will be on wheels.  Wish me luck.

Top 10 songs you are not supposed to love

I know you all have one…a favorite song that you would get ridiculed for if your friends knew it was on your playlist.  A favorite song you have to secretly love to avoid the shame yet you know all the words and want to break into a dance when you hear it.

While hanging out at The Common Table this weekend, we came up with the top 10 songs you love that you are not supposed to love.  The list is pretty bad and in no particular order.  Perhaps the vodka blind taste test prior to this discussion lowered the group’s inhibitions.

Bennie and the Jets. Elton John (this one is all me!)

Paper Planes. M.I.A.

Sexy Back. Justin Timberlake

California Girls. Katy Perry  (shout out to Philip)

Jessie’s Girl. Rick Springfield

Party in the USA. Miley Cyrus

Big Girls Don’t Cry. Fergie  (Corey…wow)

Whatever You Like. T.I.

Island in the Sun. Weezer

Fly. Sugar Ray
