    All the clocks in my bedroom are set three minutes fast to ensure I make it on-time (or at least not too late).

  2. I always try to leave early because I know that I will most likely get lost if I am driving to my meeting or event.

    Question-

    What do you do to make it to work, school, or general engagements on time?

    I have to set my alarm to good times for one if I'm sleeping and need to be somewhere. I also rely on other people to keep me on track sometimes.

  11. I have an 87 BMW 6 Series that I use for occasions of more sartorial splendor; however I use the Metro system and use the DC Metro Trip Planner to find the best accomodations for work or other occasions.

    your blog is on point.

    I get my girl to harrass me 30 mins before Im due at somewhere important. But usually im not bad with timing. Only when im being lazy or im paranoid ill oversleep.

  13. Wes Markegard w.markegard@gmail.com

    I wake up when my alarm goes off instead of endlessly hitting the snooze button. Works pretty well for me.

    1. Usually my cell phone or my iPod wakes me. My morning commute involves taking the local train to my university, it's about a 7 minute ride. And my'03 Honda Accord is my weekend crusader as it gets me from point A to B with time to spare.

  17. Question: What do you do to make it to work, school, or general engagements on time?

    I prep all my clothes the night before just to make sure i still want to wear that outfit the next day. Because you can make pretty harsh wardrobe decisions when you're still groggy in the morning.

    WHAT I TRY TO DO IS PREPARE THE NIGHT BEFORE .I ALSO LEAVE THE TV ON BECAUSE ONCE I HEAR THE THEME SONG FOR ACTION NEWS AT 6AM I KNOW ITS TIME TO GET UP. I KNOW AT THAT POINT I HAVE 2 HOURS TO GET DONE WHAT I DID NOT PREPARE THE NIGHT BEFORE WITH TIME TO SPARE

  19. I set 2 alarm clocks- my phone and my radio alarm.

    jenna.jean1@yahoo.com

  20. All my clocks are 10-15 minutes fast- phone, car, alarm clock. Just so if I'm really pressed for time I forget hoe fast it is.

  21. Oh yeah- email is loverboy.leon @ gmail.com

  22. My father always instilled being on time to me and my siblings when we were young. So its embedded in me to be on time. I just think about the fact that its rude to not be on time…

  23. My rely on my girlfriend… is that a bad thing? She's just reliable since I am a known oversleeper. The days she isn't with me- I have to set 2 alarm clocks and ask her for a wake up call.

  24. GREAT BLOG!

    THIS MIGHT BE EXTREME BUT I SET MY CLOCKS 30 MINUTES FAST TO BE ON TIME.

    HOUSTON

  25. to get places on time and to be on time in general i:

    1. set all clocks about 12 1/2 minutes fast, which usually gets rounded to 10 minutes when im thinking about it being fast.

    2. take the train generally, since i live right next to a station. and i give myself cushion time or the train or shuttle to mess up

    3. i prepare everything i need the night before- ironing clothes, lunch, everything… this saves me alot of time in the morning- so all i have to do is get ready and im out the door.

    4. eat and exercise daily. this may seem random, but what your health plays a big role in your body functions and its easier for me to wakeup now than back in the day 3 or 4 years ago when i would eat pizza chips and soda for dinner. now my dinners are usually fish or turkey, with fruit smoothies and/or huge salads.

    5. i make sure my car is always filled up. i fill up my car when its on 1/2 tank- sometimes 3/4th just so i wont ever have to worry. my mom would always be running late when i was young, then shed have to stop and put in gas making her more late- so you can say i learned from her, but i just learned to do the opposite.

    6. keep my house, office, car clean and organized. be organized saves time. i know where everything is so im never searching for "my blue and white tie" or "my cologne" etc.

    if i can think of anything else i'll get back to you.

    I try to set my alarm clock or phone to wake me up. I have a hard time leaving the comfort of my bed. Most times I'm late thou unless I wake up atleast a hour early to prep. I don't have a watch thou. :-)

  33. I add 15 minutes to my "first instinct" time…I'm a poor estimator so this ends up working fairly well for me. Plus I have an Orient Mako to help me out!

  34. Well There's only one way, and one way only, to making sure your early or atleast ontime, and thats being PREPARED!!! so if you can't physically lay out what your planing to wear, at least envision it, and i mean give thought to even the EXACT boxer-briefs your going to wear and where its located, and all this you can do just minutes before you fall asleep in bed… I find that when my clothes are all laid out, physically or mentally that just leaves taking a quickie shower, and grabbing a granola bar or two… 20mins TOPS and your on your way!!!! Also An Orient Automatic watch does help you keep track of time while you dash!!!

  36. i am a gentleman, i get to places on time, becaue i have a respect for others. i start work at 8.30 and i plan to getthere 15 mins earlier, because then if i get held up i have still got 15 mins extra time, so to speak!
    its jus manners in your social life, it tells people they are important,if u arrive on time.

  37. if you arrive on time then you are late! i learned this back when i was in high school sports, and have used this advice ever since.

  38. I allow myself ample time to get to my destinations. No need to rush, right?

    Answer: Put an alarm across the room and compensate for the time needed to get from my house to work, school or general engagements.

  40. To make sure I show up at the appropriate time when planning to get to work or other engagements I usually set a zero hour to get out of the house by. I find its easier to get ready when your working to beat a certain time. Setting your clock ahead may work for some people, but I'd rather not fool myself into leaving early or getting out of the house on time. I find its better to just have make some sort of a plan and know when you've got to be out of the door.

    Also, great blog. If there are other fashion oriented blogs for men that you'd recommend, I'm all ears. I also tweeted about the contest and became a fan on facebook.

  42. transit b/c I love nature that much but if I must I drive w/ my bwois.

  43. I always put the fresh ringtone on the phone for me to wake up to in the morning. Nothing gets you out of bed and active like a great song.

    As for school (San Diego State!)… there are way too many beautiful people down here to NOT go to class. Fact!

    And for everything else… I'd say leave yourself enough time so that you don't sweat your fit on the way out the door. Besides, who doesn't like to slow ride every once in a while?
