Clothes make the man*

I made this drawing from a photo in a magazine. I was admiring this guy's outfit as I was riding the train to NYC and flipping through the magazine that featured his picture. The man sitting next to me, who had been earnestly typing reports and emails on his laptop, said to me "What do you think of that?" and I said "I think it's great. I love a guy who puts some flair into what he wears." Then the guy said, "I know him. I work with him." I said "Really? Where do you work?" He said "Colgate Palmolive," and then he went back to typing as if he had never spoken to me at all.
