Style: "Mad Men"Now for some great style tips from our friends at Isaac Baker & Sons:

  • Mad Men packs a pocket square full of style. Big sellers these days are ties and ties with matching hankies. And for your viewing pleasure — here’s a video 

from Askmen.com on How to fold a pocket square in a straight fold, three-point, one-point and pouffe all in a 3-minute video — the more complicated folds are midway through.

What eles is styling at Isaac Baker & Sons?

  • The store sold more blue jeans than dress slacks recently.
  • The store’s own brand of cologne is a hit — I love it!
  • Callaway golf apparel — they’ve got it!
  • Dress shirts – -always a winner at Isaac Baker. Mr. Parker (my hot, well-dressed hubby) loves them!

A recent survey in my family — among my kids — revealed that my youngest son would say “I love you” to his girlfriend before my daughter would say the words to a boyfriend. My older son also would beat my daughter to the “L” word.

That supports some crazy dating surveys that indicate men say “I love you” first and more often than women.

Here’s a link to a 2011 Psychology Today article that analyzes men to death and discusses the Mirage Man and desperation among couples who get together more for lust than love.

Another article in Science of Relationships agrees that men utter the “L” word first.

At Askmen.com, a relationship expert advises a letter writer to never say “I Love You” first in this advice column. I like a Yahoo forum where one guy said it didn’t matter. Two other men said that women scare men off using those words.

A Glamour article agrees women should wait for men to say it first, and some of the comments indicate a lot of people in relationships have never said the words. Scary.
