Schmidt’s Rules of Fashion

It’s Friday, and who doesn’t want a good laugh on Friday?

If you don’t watch New Girl, this might not be funny to you. But, really, why don’t you watch New Girl?

Although I’m a Nick girl, Schmidt might be the funniest character on the show.  For Christmas, I bought my friend Cat (of binder clip and satire fame) the Douche Journals, by Schmidt – the character.  It’s brilliant.

I skimmed a little online before I gave it to her and found this gem.  Enjoy!

Schmidt’s Rules of Fashion:

  • First rule of  fashion: Only professional athletes may wear olive.
  • Second rule of fashion: The perfect pair of sport sandals is not owning sport sandals.
  • Third rule of fashion: If it doesn’t need to be washed by hand, throw it in the trash.
  • Fourth rule of fashion: It’s not about the wristwatch, it’s about the man wearing a better wristwatch than your crappy wristwatch.
  • Fifth rule of fashion: If your wardrobe were a deck of cards, the jokers would be suede.
  • Sixth rule of fashion: One day people will talk about Dwayne Wade’s cardigans the way we talk about Thomas Edison’s light bulb.
  • Seventh rule of fashion: Besides bearing children, ironing is the noblest thing we do as human beings.
  • Eighth rule of fashion: Wrinkle-free shirts lack character and contain asbestos.
  • Ninth rule of fashion: Plum is a viable sweater color ever 11 1/2 years.  Seriously, it’s how they set the atomic clock.
  • Tenth rule of fashion: One percent of your adjusted gross income should go straight to hosiery.
  • Eleventh rule of fashion: Men who tan quality leathers should be paid more than doctors.
  • Twelfth rule of fashion: Merino wool is the biggest scam since the South Sea Bubble.
  • The penultimate rule of fashion: Always match your belt with your attitude.
  • The final rule of fashion: Have fun!

Personally, I think it’s a great list.  Anything you would add? 🙂
Have a great weekend!
