Sprezzatura: You are doing it wrong.

My reaction to the news that yet another person is about to start pontificating on mens style on the internet ranges from *facepalm* to *foreheaddesk*.

This one, however, may be different.

In what I believe to be one of his first posts on Slate, Troy Patterson addresses one of the questions that we hear the most in these circles, namely, "Can I get away with this?". To which he provides one of the most reasonable, intelligent, and well-articulated answers I have heard on the subject which, in summary, amounts to this:

"If you need to ask, you probably can't".

It's worth a read.

Not to mention that it was a very gentle and polite answer... It was a good read, thanks. Some progress with the hand?

Is your injured hand better?

Good post, and although I am a new to this blog, I would love to know about the hand as well.
