I guess the takeaway is that some people don't even consider being well dressed as an important part of their self presentation. That seems odd to me.

There is this guy I see in the restroom at work seemingly everytime I go in there. He is so carefully primping his hair, spending forever making sure everything is just right.
And he's wearing black dress pants that are several sizes too large and about 6 inches too long. A ratty white shirt that looks like it hasn't been washed in a month. And an ill-fitting bright red sweater that's also 2 sizes too large and looks all weirdly stretched out. And of course, square toed plastic shoes.
And he's always wearing the same thing. Everytime I see him, I just want to smack him and tell him his hair is the least of his concerns.
