  • You think black Crocs with black socks are considered dress shoes.

  1. Ah, c’mon. We fashion-challenged guys need way more help than this. Please be more specific!

  2. i agree! more detail on your next posting, with flash cards even

  3. Wait, 2 minutes in the dryer isn’t the magical cure-all for my life?!

  4. A dark suit is appropriate with a sold-color shirt
    (white or blue), and a subdued tie (rep stripe or foulard.). NO black shirts-they make you look like you meant to head for the open call for the next Quentin Tarantino film! Black dress shoes, preferably oxfords, not loafers. Also try to avoid the black suit, white shirt,, black tie “chain-restaurant waiter look!
    While the dryer and wrinkle-spray are nice, an iron is your friend and remember that a dry-cleaner is the place to take your suit after an audition, don’t toss it on the bedroom floor! The best item to keep in your bag? A GOOD lint brush, and don’t forget to use it!
