    I think Trump has started to wear those old school baggy pants to appeal to his demographic which is unfortunately a bit too inclined to your Man Rules, but I wish he'd stop! He looked better a few years back, but I guess the man of the people can't wear no skinny fag pants!

    Anyway, big Don is well known for detesting poor dressers like SLOPPY STEVE

    He's wearing armor now so the outfits have changed. Reviewbrah did a segment on this a while back during one of his radio broadcasts. Trump has consistently worn very conservatively styled but well tailored suits for decades and it's never gone out of style. It's the same concept he applies to his properties. Instead of going crazy with trends in the 70's, 80's, 90's and beyond he stuck to earthtones, wood, glass, stone and other timeless materials and choices which in the long run paid off in a huge way as every building ages gracefully and it appeals to an international audience. In Art of the Deal he talks about how all the hotshot Japanese business tycoons only wanted to stay in Trump hotels because they knew it was going to be very clean and nothing was going to be weird.

  6. Exactly that. Trump dresses in a relatively timeless, with a slight bias towards early 90s, style. He's a big guy and 70 so he shouldn't be following some faggy trend.
    Wait for Trump style to become fashion - wider ties, fuller trousers, American style jackets that actually hang across the chest and shoulders.

    I'm going to lose another 10 pounds and keep doing my convict routine (gym access on ship is limited) before I earn the right to start dressing like this. Don Johnson's look from the last two seasons of Miami Vice is my ideal aesthetic, except possibly replacing Ray Ban wayfarers with gold rimmed aviators. Have to shrink my ass some more, although progress has been made.

    Imagine Contra rolling into a Philippine bar with a flowing mullet and Miami Vice clothes. The last shall be first!

    All of Christopher Nolan's films have an attention to detail on men's tailoring. His films have been critiqued as being too male-centric while every woman is either a psychotic femme fatale or near useless. I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT DEPTH OF IMAGINATION HE HAS

    Gold rimmed aviators have that timeless vibe that can make a person look effortlessly cool, instantly. As long as you stick with a classic tint color and don't go for something phagadociously trendy, or mirrored. Mirror comes and goes in style, but smoked tints never look bad.

    I used to own mirrored aviators but they looked corny. Sly could make the black rimmed ones look cool in Cobra but I couldn't pull it off. I wouldn't be caught dead in purple or blue tinted aviators. Basically Don Johnson from season 5 with Top Gun glasses and wayfarers being swapped out for one another on occasion.

    @Man of the North Only possible problem with that idea is that I sweat more than possibly any human being alive, so I would probably pit the hell out of my light pastel shirts and my swamp ass/balls would show right through any light colored slacks. Maybe it could be avoided if I used enough baby powder or something like that.

    @Servo They're certainly nowhere near Ravishing Rick Rude level or anything like that but I have visible ridges coming in. Spare tire is gone, never to return. The good thing about being underway is that it forces you to clean up your diet a bit, hopefully zog content in the food is minimized but I feel way better overall.

    There are garment protectors which affix to the inside of the armpits of a shirt and absorb sweat. You may have to search Amazon for "dress shields." I got nothing for the pants situation though.

    No sweat crew reporting in, I can pull off white shirts and all that but wearing a suit during the summer without sweating at all is horrible! Crossing a sunny parking lot with a black suit on in August feels like the end is near.

    Would not wear in front of clients. Gaudy stuff like that is purely for Christmas parties and the like.
