John, the walking fashion disaster.....

As we all know, John simply cannot be trusted to dress himself. This is because, as a typical dumb guy from the stick, he has only the vaguest idea that the color combinations that impress him and make him feel comfortable are what other people call a garish eyesore. What's more, he thinks that altering the way he expresses himself to please Elly is some sort of inhumane imposition guaranteed to make him miserable. Here in the early stages of his marriage, he's able to resist her tendency to reform him owing to his generalized lack of concern as regards what she thinks. As time passes and he begins to take her seriously, he's more willing to bite the bullet and make the huge sacrifice of not dressing like the clown on his children's bedroom lamp most of the time. The only exception is when he's playing with his trains; since it keeps him from chasing women, Elly doesn't mind his looking like a fool. After all, she's not Evil Therese who wants to destroy the beloved institution of passive-aggressive bullhuckey and insincerity; she simply wants the neighbors to not point at her and blackball her for failing to control her husband better.
