Here’s a conversation I had with someone via text messages recently. Make of it what you will.
310: I thought my suits were nice (a step above JC Penney, obviously), but they ain’t jack when compared to the suits other folks wear on their way to work.
Me: Try sitting in classes or dinners with people who wear J. Press everyday. It sucks, man.
310: Oh I know. That reminds me of my classes. “This suit is Armani” or “this suit was made by the same tailor in Chicago who makes suits for Senators.” It blows.
Me: If I wear a tux I’ll be asked for hors d’œuvres. Screw that.
310: Jaja. They think I’m club/building security. It happened today.
Me: Wear a red suit and black turtleneck, Suge Knight.
