Pics of my two darling boys.


Here are two pics of my handsome man. Popsicle would like to note that she doesn't think Papa is handsome in his suit, she likes his regular shirts better.

Here is my other handsome boy, looking dapper and adorable sunning himself (getting that vitamin D).

Here he is again with his socks pulled up to his chubby chicken thighs. (Couldn't you just eat him right up!)

and having the flexibility to put on a suit when it is in your interest to do so does not mean you aren't still a hippie at heart.

i'll (likely) have to wear a suit in my next career, but i'll (always) remain a hippie in my soul.

Tie needs a little work by Bob Abooey (4.00 / 2) #14 Tue Mar 07, 2006 at 08:00:17 AM EST
Seriously, for an art director he needs to have a little style.. I mean, it doesn't have to be crazy wild, just something to add some flare.

Also, and don't take this the wrong way, but, oh boy this is going to sound bad, but, well, his hair is cut a bit too short for his head. That is to say, he's got a rather, uh, voluminous head, and, uh, I mean don't get me wrong, it's a great head, damn fine head, but, well, a little more length on the hair would complement it much better.

But otherwise darn spiffy!

Oh, and the little Burger is just as cute as the dickens but his hair needs a little work too.

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob

Pattern Is Best Used In Stingy Moderation by CheeseburgerBrown (2.00 / 0) #33 Tue Mar 07, 2006 at 08:57:29 AM EST
Tie is boring white man conservative type...

I think that boring conservative types wear patterns on their ties because that's the status quo at the men's shops. In contrast, he who goes to the bother of securing solid colour ties has a) invested extra care in tie selection, and b) has demonstrated an understanding of graphic design suitable to his position.

The overwhelming majority of patterned ties look wishy-washy at best, hilarious in the mean, and are occasionally even tragic.

I will not bend to the patterned tie dogma.

You did go into it by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #50 Tue Mar 07, 2006 at 10:21:10 AM EST
I enjoy both solid shirts and patterend shirts. I have a quite dashing canary yellow dress shirt that makes most nice red-patterened ties just shine. But neither the shirt nor tie have any pizzaz. That I think is the sin. The saving grace is the vest.

Style or not, I find solid ties boring and uninteresting. I wasn't a big fan of the paisely ties of late 80s/early 90s -- quite ugly, and I've written better fractal generators in my spare time. Now, if you picked up the wide and very short ties from the late 60's/early 70s, then you'd be hip, but the vest wouldn't go with that.

Had you worn a denim type blue shirt with that tie, well, I would have had to just write you off as angry-white-man circa 1998-2000.

Your taller one is looking good - though, with the Chucks, I can help but think that he's looking at his watch and saying to himself, "Where are the rest of the Specials? They said they'd be here at 10:00."

The vest is a daring choice. You don't see vests so much anymore.

CBB is looking pretty good there.   The Old Man cleans up pretty good. 

I can, on occasion, shock friends and family with my business attire.  Since I began working from home, I have two kinds of business attire.  T-shirt and jeans and the full on sport jacket with tie.  I wear the last so infrequently that I usually get shocked looks.

The Mini-CBB unit is looking pretty sporty in that striped jumper as well.  For as young as he is, he's a big baby.

I hope CBB's new gig is working out for him.

i mean, i was scruffy that night. but i do own a tux, and wear it on occasion, and dress up when its required to do so.

for like eight months when i was a contractor working for a contract agency which had a dress code, i wore button downs and nice slacks every day, and was seriously overdressed compared to everyone at the company they contracted me to.

those days are gone.
