Last month I received an email from regarding this photo on my Flickr account.  They were interested in featuring it in an upcoming tongue-in-cheek article on their site titled “What Not to Wear to Work”.

What Not to Wear to Work???

I was mildly offended since I’m wearing a navy blue Emanuel Ungaro suit with a respectable red silk tie.   OK, So my hair was a little messy but really…

The photo was taken at my nephew’s graduation from West Point in 2006.  (George W. Bush delivered the commencement speech!  That was interesting.)

Since I am somewhat of an attention whore, I gave them permission.   I figured that perhaps this would be the “after” photo.  The example of what to wear to work.

After checking the site over and over for days, the article finally posted.  Sadly, I did not make the cut.  Perhaps they came to their senses.  I think I have a pretty good idea of what to wear to work.

Here is the article.

    SOMEWHAT of an attention whore??

  3. The above comment coming from the man who knows me best. 🙂 Funny, my reCAPTCHA words are, ‘his’ ‘speedy’.

    His speedy reply…?

  4. I saw Ray’s comment and thought “Guess who’s sleeping on the couch tonight?” 😉

  5. I think the look is just great. So’s the suit and tie. 🙂

  6. I wear both Tevas and shorts to work. Sigh.

  7. You can stop by my work dressed like that any day. I must confess, Ray’s comment did pass through my mind when I read the post.

    You look so handsome!
    But, I’d love to see you in Levi’s and flannel!
    That would be what to wear.
    Love that ‘stash.

  10. Attention whores unite! Rise up against those who dare ignore us! Overthrow the throngs of the indifferent! But first tell me – do these jeans show off my package?

  11. If your jeans don’t show off your package, you’re wearing the wrong jeans…
