What I Wore Today: April Fools’ Edition!

April 1st, 2013

Rule #1 of the Articles of Style Office: Bring Your “A” Game.

“April Fools’ Edition!”

Rule #2: Memorize the script of the movie Face/Off. Dan quizzes us daily.

“What does Travolta say to Cage in Act II Scene 3?!” Dan roars at John as he cowers in the corner trying to get video record of one of Dan’s outburts.

“I..I’m not s..s..sure…”


Dan breaks our new tortoiseshell shoehorn over John’s head. That’s the third shoehorn this month.

Sometimes I wonder why we put up with it. Then I look at the Allen Edmonds boots I just received in the mail yesterday and I remember… we do it for the swag.

…and the fans, of course.

Comment below to let us know which outfit is your favorite!



“Gotta love a suit that says f-you, I work for myself. #Rumspringa”



“Got the Spring blues. Also, this is what Towni looks like, with crazy swag.”






“Boot to go play a lil’ post Easter hackey uut here in Saskatoon, eh?”



“I look good with a little Filipino in me…pause.”


Happy April 1st,
