Get Rid Of The Advertisements

I'll co-ordinate my shirt with my gray goatee
a light blue cotton blend will infuse my hair
with silver-blues - subliminal - few will see
the artifice, but they'll feel the effort there.
Soft gray trousers, un-cuffed, I'll be casual
a sports coat - yes, I'm aware they're not the style.
For me, though change must be gentle, gradual
so I'll continue with sports coats for a while.
'Out-of fashion' reminds me. Where's my hat -
the white fedora that has a broad black band?
And I don't care that it makes my jowls look fat!
If fact, I think all in all I look quite grand!
A dandy? No, but a man should be well-dressed.
When out-on-the town, one should always look his best!
