Fashion is a hobby, more or less, and hobbies require a little bit more effort as an adult. I don't say that to be condescending, but just what I've discovered over the ~six years of my professional career. Especially at my current job, where I have to wear company-issued FR clothing and steel-toed boots every day, often six days and 50-70 hours per week (this past weekend was my first full weekend off since early April). Any day that I'm not completely exhausted by the time I get home, I make an effort to put on something interesting even if just to go grab a bite to eat or hang out at a coffee shop or have a couple drinks or whatever. Really brightens up my day.

You're all making me insanely glad I decided to stick with software rather than trying my hand at management consulting.

Took a charter flight on a DC-10 to London. Landed at Heathrow. Took a cab to the city center. Don't let people lie to you: hostels are for the ugly. I'm staying in Home House, the most beautiful hotel in the world. Called a friend from school who was selling hash, but she wasn't in. Met a couple of Brits who take me to, of all places, Camden Street. I flirt a bit at the Virgin Megastore, buy some CDs, then follow some girls with pink hair. I wandered around trying to get laid, until it started to rain, then went back to Home House. Ministry of Sound is dead, so I go to Remform - but it's Gay Night. I find the one hetero girl in the place and we dry hump on the dance floor. We cab it back to Home House. I strip her clothes off, suck her toes, and we fuck. I hung out for four or five days. Met the world's biggest DJ, Paul Oakenfold. Kept missing the Changing of the Guards. Wrote my mom a postcard I never sent. Bought some speed from an Italian junkie who was trying to sell me a stolen bike. Smoked a lot of hash that had too much tobacco in it. Saw the Tate. Saw Big Ben. Ate a lot of weird English food. It rained a lot, it was expensive, and I'm jonesing... So, I split for Amsterdam. The Dutch all know English, so I didn't have to speak any Dutch - which was a relief. I cruise the Red Light District. Visit a sex show. Visit a sex museum. Smoke a lot of hash. I meet a Dutch TV actress and we drink absinthe at a bar called Absinthe. The museums were cool, I guess. Lots of Van Goghs and the Vermeers were intense. Wandered around. Bought a lot of pastries. Ate some intense waffles. We bought some coke and I cruised the Red Light District, until I found some blonde with big tits that reminds me of Lara. I gave her a hundred guilders. In the end, she pulls me out, and I cum between her tits, even though I'm wearing a rubber. Afterward we made small-talk about AIDS, her Moroccan pimp, and herself. I wake to the sound of a wino singing. It's 8 AM and hot as blazes. I bump into some guy from Camden who says he knows me, but I'm sure that he's a fag, so I lose him. I try to fart and instead shit my pants. Back in my hotel room, I masturbate and have a pain in my groin. That night, I dream about a beautiful girl, half in water, stretching her lean body. She asks me if I like it and I tell her she can clean fish with it. I don't know what it means, but I wake well-rested, masturbate in the shower, and check out... I make my way back to London and hang out in Piccadilly Circus. Hmm. Palakon. I swap shirts with some upper-crusty Cambridge chick. Hers was an Agnes B., mine a Costume Nationale. She acts stuffy and prudish, but is really wild underneath it all. She barely looks at my abs, though she wants to. The next day, I drop some acid and get lost in the subway for a full day and can't find my way out. I meet a cute girl who lets me jack off onto her as long as no cum gets onto her Paul Smith coat. We get stoned while listening to Michael Jackson records and the next morning I wake up talking to myself. I have a big bump on my head from flailing in my sleep. I get my stuff and barely make my plane back to the United States... I no longer know who I am and I feel like the ghost of a total stranger.

I had a dream the other night that I was in some city (New York?) browsing clothes, seriously contemplating buying an EG suit. As I was about to make the purchase the SA ran up, grabbed my hand, and escorted me outside, saying there was something I needed to see. Across the street was c4est, on horseback, wearing sunglasses and a giant hat. He looked me straight in the eye before launching a grappling hook at the roof of an adjacent building and disappearing into the evening sky. I woke up before I could figure out what to do with the horse.

on that note picked up a jil hex shirt and dries wedge-sole derbys but i'm not sure if i'll keep because i'm in this weird spot where i feel like spending a lot of money on 'work clothes' is silly, but work clothes are all i ever wear now

 

in my (narrow) mind, bis-cas basically is a tailored shirt/trousers/some nice shoes (and if required a sport coat and tie).. really boring but presentable stuff.  i'd be really interested to see what SwD's interpretation of it will be.  how to look sufficiently differentiated from the mundane, yet not look like a tool with contrast button holes/floral inner collars/cuffs and other lame details that add visual interest.

baizilla had some awesome takes on it that could fit into a less formal office.

On the other hand, your coworkers are probably better dressed.

I don't understand how people like Brett Easton Ellis.
post #81253 of 100264

damn cool outfit, but not sure if it'd fit into a bis-cas workplace though.  

 

on the bright side, since it's such a bore to wear shirt/pants/shoes +/- tie on weekdays, you'd appreciate your SwD baller stuff a lot more?

I'm currently sitting on a large rock in the middle of the Rockies, which I find very agreeable. There is no such thing as fashion here. I wear a Lululemon sweat-wicking long-sleeve t, Nike running shorts, Smartwool socks, and busted Vasque hiking boots. The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.
