A few (ok,more than a few) years back, as a 26 year old, my mother complimented me on my suit as I was heading out the door with my date. She said I was dressed as well as Lawrence Welk.
Hey, he was dressed by Hardy Amies. The credits on his show said so.

Girl: "I like your pants, who makes them?" Me: "Dolce & Gabbana" Girl: (flashing me a look that was both totally disgusted and totally confused at the same time - consisting of the biggest frown I've ever seen as well as a head roll) "Never heard of them" Regarding same pants: "Those look like Gap. They must have been expensive"

Go to LA or NYC, and exchange the words "Dolce & Gabbana" for "Gap" (spoken with an accent, of course) and you would've had the same exchange (see Paris Hilton re. Walmart in "The Simple Life".)  Don't know which is worse.

"How long the doctor say you gotta wear them shoes?"

Checkout girl at GAP told me I was one of the most attractive men she'd ever seen. She wasn't even a sales girl, just taking my money. She was really cute and it was really strange. I'm quite happily married but don't wear a ring. Didn't know quite how to hadle it so I just thanked her and quite sincerely told her that I hadn't even had anything like that happen to me before. I have to blame it on the clothes since, like I said, that's never ever happened to me. Of course it hasn't happened since either. I ran right home and told my wife.

Nice thread, I'm enjoying the responses. Most common: "Good luck on the interview." (Last heard for a dove grey and blue herringbone two-button, white shirt, grey, blue, and pink paisley tie, with white pocket square) #2: "Great hat." (the odd fedora and my old cowboy hat -- in the sea of polos, flip flops and caps I swim in they stand out a little) #3: "Have you got a gun in there?" or "how much money is in there?" in reference to my silver Zero Halliburton attache. Favorite: "You are so like, you are the knight on the white horse." The best clothes compliments are those that don't mention the clothes. Regards, Huntsman

I've been slacking on jackets this school semester, but I wore a sports jacket the other day and my Japanese teacher said, "Wooh? What.. where are you... interview?"

"Come on man, you look like you're a Gotti, hook a brotha up" - Homeless guy in Newark said this to me while asking for change. I was wearing a tan three button SB suit, a white shirt with grey pencil stripes and a maroon tie.

I was once accused of looking like a used car salesman

Exactly. A simple 'you look nice' is what I like to hear, if anything at all.

Were you wearing a short sleeve dress shirt and sock tie?

Because of Goodyear?

I thought I was dressed nicely actually, if a bit less conservative than usual. Golden tan Domenico Spano custom slacks, light olive with windowpane pattern Luciano Barbera sportcoat, blue Borrelli shirt (or was it olive, can't remember) chocolate brown/gold plaid Wilkes Bashford tie. Can't remember the shoes/belt for sure, but I think they were dark brown. Maybe it was the pants - they look pretty gold under artificial light.

Um, how do you know that?

And then did you choose that username as a sort of mantra to prevent it from happening again?

tgfny after a visit to a young lady's apartment who I met at a party and she'd come up and hit on me: "So why'd you come talk to me?" ditzy blonde: "I don't know; you just looked so good." Was wearing a gray RLPL pin suit, Hermes "cotton" tie, and cognac EG laceups. For some reason I have fond memories of that outfit.
