This is Mr.Thornton, in his don’t-mess-with-the-boss attire:
This is Mr. Social-Call Thornton. I’m not crazy about top-hats but look at that poise:
Notice the splash of color here: a maroon colored cravat and a stripped waist-coat…
one dashing fellow!
Now here is Mr. Social-Engagement Thornton. I’m not really loving this look:
more dandy than dashing.
But here we have I’m-running-my-own-business-and-life-is-good Thornton:
While here we have my-mother-just-gave-me-some-really-bad- advice Thornton:
dashing but not as appealing, somehow.
if he would have just gone with this look to begin with:
Oh, no! Poor Mr. Thornton has gone from dashing to distressed.
where did he go wrong?
Was it the hat? It is a bit frayed.
No, the hat looks fine Mr. Thornton.
Was it the splash of color?
That color is definitely dashing, Mr. Thornton!
Was it the stripped waist-coat?
aside from the unwanted attention, it wasn’t the waist-coat either.
What was it, then? Maybe show more of those forearms?
*tries not to shrink from that intimidating stare*
you always look dashing!
…just try losing the cravat more often.
