I'm not a Tetrachromat. Please don't ask me if your clothing matches.

We’ve all heard the stereotype that men couldn’t even get their socks to match if not for their wives/girlfriends/lady-friends helping them. We all know that clothes-shopping for the most part has required the assitance of our moms/sisters since we started wearing them. An article in the December 2000 issue of RedHerring might clear up exactly why. You can find the article here.

I found this to be quite interesting. Hopefully you do as well. Please feel free to share your opinions.

Hey Simetra,

What the hell do you mean my low-quarters don’t go with my plaid argyles in my BDU trousers and mess dress shirt? What gives?

Get this: When I first enlisted in the Marines (don’t ask), I failed my color vision test at MEPS. Two years later, I begin a 5 year career of mixing paint for Sherwin Williams and Home Depot. Freaky, ain’t it?
Thank God my fashion is governed by AFI’s

Yeah Trip, I love how I don’t have to worry about matching anything.

“Let’s see, do I wear blue with blue, or blue with… blue? No, that just doesn’t look right…”

Of course, I’ve been known to grab a pair of white socks on occasion in the wee hours of the morning. Not the best thing to wear with service dress.

Who personally enjoys making fun of Trip’s sig. :wink:
