The Clothes Make the Man

How you dress often determines how people think of you. I wear bow ties a lot, and walking down the street people will sometimes smile at me. The woman at the cell phone store told me the bow tie is super cute.

A while back I went to a mustache pageant, though I didn’t compete. There’s a lot you can do with a mustache. I decided to go for the bad ass look.

Dressed like this, walking down the street is a different experience. People look away. They move aside. A couple guys even crossed the street. It was an uncomfortable experience.

What if I had gone with a pencil mustache and a cravat instead?
