Lanvin suit rom this season, or whatever) --  would you go up to them and start a conversation about it?  Would you ask if you could take their photo?

I had 2 such encounters yesterday, and both times I chickened out.  I am really regretting one of those encounters, because the guy was in my grail look -- and looked friendly and approachable enough -- and was so obviously a tourist!

Just grab their crotch, look them in the eye, and hope for the best.

It's the secret handshake of style bloggers everywhere.

Cyclists actively shun people who get decked out in team gear, even for supporting a team.

 

This, however, is well-loved

Yes, why wouldn't you?

I complimented a guy on his outfit last night, and asked him what it was. He told me to just google Gaddafi. We shared a laugh

I wear more/look better in shoes with a bigger profile--thicker sole, subsantial upper--but I'm constantly drawn to sleek, low-profile shoes, especially sneakers. I think I just like how they look on display.

Considering how infrequently most users on here will dress for the sake of uniformity (as opposed to dressing in a personal uniform), I kinda wonder how seriously (or not) y'all take sportin' the team colors on game day.

/banal thoughts.

I typically only go to baseball games, so it really depends on the weather. I tend to wear light colored pants in the summer, just because one time I sat in the sun wearing jeans, and it felt like my legs were baking. Last time I bought a cheap team t-shirt, and wore that under a harrington. I don't really like wearing t-shirts anymore as I have a gut. I'm usually wearing blues and grays anyway, so it's easy to match the team's colors. I stopped wearing caps a few years ago, but I might pick one up if I end up going to some games this year, although probably one with the old team logo, as seen here:

Nothing wrong with putting on team colors if you go to a game. I don't own any jerseys, but I'll throw on team branded apparel (hat and hoodie if it's winter or a T-shirt if it's warm) when I manage to get to Packers' game. It provides a certain sense of camaraderie when you're in a crowd of like minded fans, though it's perfectly okay to wear normal clothes as long as they aren't the colors of the rival team.

i probably would. i think it kind of depends on where you are, though. where i live it's pretty rare to see people dressing well. i wouldn't ask if i could take their photo unless i was a fashion blogger or something.
