Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.

Here's a guy who's got the formula down for getting dressed at dawn, when it's too early to see and much too early to care what you wear. Graphic designer Ron Lawrence picks an outfit and then buys six of everything from the skin out. Six months later, he goes out and gets another set of six. He wondered if anyone at work would notice. Guess what? Women noticed. This is MORNING EDITION.
