Dressing Up

I wish I looked as good as these guys.

I am trying to dress better for school: sports jacket, tie, slacks, and so on. I find it helps me to feel better about my work, and the students seem to response. They say I "look like a teacher." I get many of my jackets from the thrift stores. I am surprised a the quality that can be had there for little money. However, my wife has surprised me on a couple of occasions with a really nice suit and a jacket. I will try to get a picture of how I really look sometime.
