How. Dare. You.

robin overcompensates with the workwear aesthetic because he thinks it makes him seem less gay.

Clothes and style are very important parts of life. Sorry, but that's an uncomfortable truth you have to live with.

Black shoes are perfectly fine. Sometimes with with right outfit

You'll never be rich enough to buy all of the clothes you want. Simply not true

Dressing well doesn't get you laid. Dressing well + CONFIDENCE does, however.

Your wardrobe will never be complete. Shoes maybe.

$1000 shoes are just as good as $400 shoes. In general, for the real nitpickers, absolutely NO

You'll never look as cool as James Bond. My apologies to you. I'm cool enough

Or Phat Guido. He IS one cool cat!

Posting pictures of yourself online for other men to look at is pretty gay. Refer to the lack of confidence above

Looking at pictures of what other men are wearing online is also pretty gay.

Go at it.


Here's what I think

This thread is (well, has become) dumb as hell. Why do I get the impression that for a few of you, these anxieties are held closer than an ironic arm's length? None of these truths are uncomfortable. This is supposed to be fun.

Can't understand the appeal of cordovan - looks crap. Almost every shoe pic at Andy's is cordovan. Very boring

So what? Is that referring to the sofa mafoo has in one of his pics? Looks great, lots of cheaper versions of that sort of thing around, if that's what you want. Can't begrudge someone spending what they have, otherwise where will it end? There will always be people better-off and worse-off than yourself, so comparisons in either direction are not helpful for a contented disposition and healthy outlook on life.

For all this posting, think of the great books we could be reading, places to which we could travel, meals we could eat, friends we could make, or exercises we could do.

... but you don't need to swear-off fun things and hobbies, do you? One of the probs with forums is that you only see one facet of a person's life and interests, which can make people seem one-dimensional and obsessive, when in reality i'd say only about 2/3rds of the people on SF are obsessive...

Good on ya - do what you want to do. Choices are an outlet for self-expression and individuality, and an exercise of freedom. No point having a boring conformist unhappy life when you could have a boring non-conformist unhappy life...

Good call. It's not about copying what other people do, although it's interesting to see how other people find their own way / approaches to things, however apparently misguided some attempts are

I don't know the difference between Dusty and Dopey and I conflate their posts in to a single entity.
