    So you show up for a lecture for a bunch of people in shorts and a T-shirt? Call me old school but that's insulting to the audience-and kind of undercuts his credibility. You do dress for success.

    HKM: yes I am, for finding it.

    Skip: maybe he had no…

    choice.

    Actually he says he always wear jeans. Always? Maybe they were in the wash.

    Anyway for me, consistency, correctness and correspondence of thought and action maketh the person, not superficialities like clothing (I always wear shorts and tee-shirts to speak at major conferences when I am trying to look cool) the number of facial tattoos, augmentations and piercings. Just as bad plastic surgery or shorts and tee-shirts – as I am wearing now in Ko Samui – won't recall your lost youth. Or mine. They can make you (me) look stupid however.

    But I could quote The Scottish Play (if I could remember any of it) about the moral contrast between clothes and the man.
