Tell us a secret … I’m embarrassed of where I come from because it’s a small town. That’s my secret! I like the city!

You should never be embarrassed of where you come from (unless you hail from Columbia, Missouri). Nothing wrong with being from a small town.

Very GQ! You look very relaxed and smart in appearance. Keep up the great work!

every week commentors complain about "dress jeans" while the SS subjects complain about gym shorts and leggings... so from what I gather the only acceptable pantswear must be camo shorts, jncos, hammerpants, and zubas (like those spiffy new NCAA tourney uniforms!)
