Ask the MB

Ask the MB
Q: While surfing the web, I came across this web site: jpeterman.com Some of the clothes were quite interesting. But then I thought, would the MB approve? Or is the site too 1990s?

On another topic: My wife says you're gay (NTTAWWT) because you watch Project Runway. I say you're not (NTTAWWT) since you obviously watch sports and you have a feature titled, "How to Determine if your chick is dirty girl." NTTAWWT, if so, but we have a bet riding on it.

Part I: We deeply admired J. Peterman back in the day, especially the brilliantly written catalog copy, which was taught in some colleges' English classes. However, it's geared mainly to the Boomer set, so we try to avoid.

Part II: The question is about as fresh and modern as the Seinfeld reference. Does that settle your bet?
