COVID Has Been Hard on my Friend: Jim, The Shoe Addict.

The HR Capitalist

I'm back with updates on work clothes. As a primer, I'm the same guy who was unafraid to bring you uncomfortable fashion classics like the following: BEST PRACTICES IN BLUE BLAZERS FOR THE CONTEMPORARY WHITE PROFESSIONAL CLASS MALE. BEYOND BLUE BLAZERS - THE PANTS CHOICES OF PROFESSIONAL WHITE MEN IN AMERICA. If you don't remember these classics, go take a look. There's nothing more fun than busting on how white guys dress.
