Get Your Spiffy On

It may be true that, as a wise old friend used to say, "A monkey in a tuxedo is still a monkey."

But when I've had the chance to wear tuxedos, I was a happy monkey.

There are certain occasions--weddings, proms, Easter, graduation--where we dress up and we feel happy.

But I sometimes wonder, is it the occasion that makes us happy, or the clothes?

Women have long known this: a new hairstyle, some new clothes, a nail job, and voila! a new woman.

But guys, be honest: Isn't your step a little springier in new shoes? Don't you feel great after a haircut? Don't you feel like James Bond in a tux?

So brothers and sisters, get your spiffy on.

Polish up those shoes, trim those bangs, tie that tie.

Get that manicure, have those teeth cleaned, buy those new shades.

"The clothes make the man," they say, and the woman too.

Sure, it doesn't make you any better, like that monkey in that tuxedo. But if it makes you feel better, then why not?

Spiff up.

You'll be happier.
