WHITE POWER IS LAME


I tried to play the white power card back in my late teens. It NEVER EVER worked for me. I wore it with pride at a big function and all I got were shocked expressions and angry sneers from disapproving family members and friends. I remember being so hurt that they weren’t in awe of me. I mean after all, I was only being a dutiful son. Dad was the one who convinced me it was the white way or no way at all. Of course from the looks I got that day in May of '87 I learned my lesson – black is where it’s at. Seriously, I looked so lame wearing a white power suit to my sister’s formal sweet 16 party. 
I thought I was the mac daddy (like Ricardo Montalban), when in actuality I looked more like Tattoo.

Today I’m proud to say I've gone the black suit route and have never looked back. I just feel like it doesn’t really matter what season it is, I always look my best and slim too. I bought this Merona suit at Target, yes Target for only 80 bucks.
Modern fit.
Made of all-season wool (51% Rayon 49% Polyester).
Classic 2 button style.
Double vented in the back.

  21. Haha cleaver. It's true though, white suits kinda make you look like a tool.

    I've only worn a suit once in my life and it was a blue one.

  24. In the 1980s I actually sewed my husband a white suit and bought a pink shirt for him to wear to church. He got lots of looks too. I loved how Don Johnson looked in whit. The problem came when I washed it (it was cotton blend). It shrunk and that was it for the white suit!

  26. I was thinking of the Glad guy...but then you'd have to bleach your hair white...stay with the black suit, looks better :0)
