I think that any woman who doesn’t see your economic motivation, and for that matter financial intelligence, is missing out. Explain to her that you learned the value of education and the value of money in one fell swoop. The biggest problems in relationship and marriages are often with money, showing her you are this responsible will show her you should be taken seriously.
Anonymous asked: Dear American Gentleman, if a man wears a button-up shirt inside of a sweater, how should his collar be worn? Inside or out? Top button buttoned or not? Many thanks and I hope you and your loved ones have a lovely holiday.
I always leave the top button unbuttoned, my collars are starched enough that they typically don’t spread much from the sweater collar, but I’d say in or out is a matter of personally preference. Go with the cleanest look based on the collar type of the shirt, more narrow collars, tuck, spread collars let spread.

1. Get in better shape both physically and mentally by exercising my brain and body daily.
