If I'm wearing more MC-related stuff (not necessarily suits, but more phatguidoesque style), people who don't know me well often ask where I'm going, on the assumption that I'm dressed up for something. Compliments (or negative comments) on what I happen to be wearing on a given day don't happen that often, a lot of people just don't pay much attention to clothes unless it's really far out there. So, B.son stuff or generic man snakeskin patent shoes get comments, W+H, Rag&Bone and NiCo don't. If wearing normal streetwear I occasionally get a compliment on a particular article of clothing (usually outerwear or shoes). The best compliment is when someone has an overall sense that I generally look good in what I wear without specific commentary on specific outfits. The SZ thread is funny as hell. "I'm shocked that people look at me funny in the mall! All I was wearing was a hoodie and black jeans!"
Nothing against the fit itself, but the problem is context... These people see someone like that Christian guy post and go, "wow, he really does well with that style, I'm going to try something similar"... missing the point that they are not in a major urban epicentre of fashion, but in Ohio. This is the oft overlooked problem with directing people to the WAYWT to get a sense of what they might like to wear. It is more of a problem there than here. SF uniform is less contrary to plebian sensibilities.
