Are all beautiful women boring?
We all know that girl—the one with the flawless outfit and the perfectly-tousled hair who always looks amazing no matter what sort of circumstances leave the rest of us looking disheveled.

boring and a cold fish to boot, cant't be touched gently, can't cuddle, etc because it might mess up and place a hair out of position, oh my. Why seek the celebrity look, acheive it , and then
not be able to enjoy what you have been lucky enough to be given, and remember yr good looks will not last forever, so you better have some back up charm and personality waiting in the wings. Beauty uis only skin deep and often very shallow.

That's my opinion, of course.
In what way?

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
