“It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.”
– Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Clausewitz and Sun Tzu are like the Bird and Magic of tactical conflict studies. Yet, their words should not be restrained to the arena of physical confrontation. Gentlemen, what we face day in and day out is a battle for acceptance, acknowledgement, and appreciation from a far greater enemy than armies or navies. Yes, that foe is woman.
If war is politics by another means, then courtship is just plain old war. As any general will tell you, victory is only as attainable as the quality of your intelligence.
So, without further ado, The 500 Section Subcommittee on Fashion, Arts, and High Culture would like to lend a helping hand and let you dabble in today’s women’s fashion that’s on the in. The more you know about what a female is interested in, the better off both of you will be. And judging from the wardrobes of 500 readers, a little culture in our lives won’t hurt. Gotta keep up your swag if you wanna swag, boys.
Finally, to all of our female reader, this is a tip of our fedora to your continued (albeit bewildering) dedication!
And as always, your winners of the March Fashionista Award
