Watchdog Learns What French Cuffs Are....

As the Watchdog learns more fashion tips from Maurilio's "Fashion Fridays", I think I may start a new series "Mega Pastor Mondays" where we explore what are the latest fashion trends for the rock star mega church pastors.

There are so many - some wear faded jeans and t-shirts, some wear double-breasted suits, others seersucker suits with bow ties. Some wear suits with no ties, some Hawaiian shirts.

And some wear French Cuffs, as I learned this week. With monograms.

Here is my favorite picture of a grown man wearing French cuffs:

I like the French cuff look....the cuff and cufflinks have a hard time fitting into the sleeve of the suit, giving such weight and importance to each hand gesture. It looks so distinguished, a look of power and prestige, even if what you are saying is a bunch of hot air. The monograms speak of money...because it means you took the time to get shirts tailor-made for you and no one else, as they stitched your initials in the sleeve.

I do apologize, but I couldn't find any pictures of slender gay men strutting with French cuffs and disheveled hair, so we'll just have to leave it here. Perhaps we'll see that on one of Maurilio's future Fashion Friday posts.

So the French cuff is definitely here to stay.

After all, there will never be a shortage of politicians or mega church preachers.

For sure Mac Brunson does represents that he and FBC has the money people, altho he does get a financial break from his buddies in the clothing business!

If he truly was a stay home shepherd to his flock, this woudn't bother me but he's not - always gone and for sure has to look like the sucessful preacher.
On the positive side, his personal trainer has does wonders taking the flab off him, he's well rested from vacations. Trimmed that mafia mustache off and looking pretty good these days. :>)

And there will never be a shortage of bloggers pointing out everyone else's sins and shortcomings.

Biden needs to get a coat that fits those cuffs btw.

I always thought that Benny Hinn really dressed nice.

He looks like Liberace with a middle eastern accent.

Also, my other favorite is TD Jakes. He is about 100 pounds overweight but carrys it reall well.

Does Maurillo have hair plugs too?

Didn't Jesus say that whatever you've done for the least of these, you've done for me?

Didn't James say true religion is about visiting prisoners and caring for orphans?

Snazzy dressing, vacations, giving speeches do not fit with these priorities.

I submit that most of what goes on in many churches has VERY little to do with what Jesus emphasized.

And I think someone mentioned that Brunson probably gets a break on what he pays for his tailoring needs. He probably does, because preachers get all kinds of breaks everywhere they go, I bet.

What is so wrong with understanding basic principles of how to dress well? It doesn't even take lots of money to pick out better fitting clothes that are appropriate for the things you are involved in.

I like reading about clothes and whatnot as it relates to how someone presents themselves in a "best foot forward" way. Besides, SBC pastors wearing suits that look like that deal when a kid wears his first suit that used to be his dad's and is way too big for him, that makes it hard to take someone dressed like that serious.
