Texas teaches belt buckles
As many of my close friends know, I recently completed a four-city spiritual journey. The trip went from Tahoe to Austin to Portland and concluded two weeks ago in Cleveland, my homeland.
I consider myself an eclectic and elegant Renaissance man, and I have brought back elements from each city to my current home in Long Beach, Calif.
In my entire spiritual journey, perhaps the most critical thing I learned came from Texas: the importance of donning a classy, yet subtle, belt buckle.
You see, while ladies accessorize frequently and often resemble gypsies because of all of their jewelry, heterosexual men find accessorizing more difficult. In Portland, I found the perfect buckle that melds cutting-edge style with pragmatic business sense - a metallic cassette tape.
