In case you're being serious; no, not worried, doesn't make you 'gay'. Being attracted to other guys makes you gay; clothes make you warm, and in the best cases get you laid. By chicks.

Thanks, I was being serious but sure didn't mean to offend anyone. It's just something I've always heard. There's a whole lot of stuff you hear growing up and I figure some of it is true and some is not. This style thing is new to me and I'm sorry if my question was not a good one, but hey, if I don't ask...

Ted,
No worries mate, from the tone of your question I figured you weren't a troll. You've come to the right place to bust a lot of the stereotypes you've always heard. [] A few others, off the top of my head: square-toed shoes actually suck. Dockers are not dressy and do not look good on anyone. Caring about clothes does not make you homo-, metro-, or tri-sexual. Faux-hawks are not your friend It's OK to mix stripes. A suit doesn't have to be boring or uniformish. Levi's aren't very good jeans anymore, but there are people who will spend hundreds of dollars to get knockoffs from Asia Armani suits are OK but certainly not the pinnacle of fashion. Your girlfriend does NOT know how to dress you. [/]

Welcome to the board man, your wallet is going to hate you but you will look great.

The only time I had a problem with a pink shirt was back in the days when I was teaching in a US University. A student I knew found my pink shirt decidedly odd (a pity, she was cute). I really think such ignorant young things are the exception, though.

If you've still got what you're showing in the Baron Boutique thread, I'd call that more of a 'stylized bed head' than faux-hawk. Length is too even.

I have a fauxhawk, but I rarely actually style it in the namesake. Usually just mess it about with wax and go.

And, of course, Alden is better than Allen Edmonds. No, wait, Allen Edmonds is better than Alden. No, wait...

Seriously though, she'll see the light when you slide into a pair of well-fitting wool trousers, or high-end jeans, or a suit worn casually. Add some killer Italian shoes and she'll get to fall in love all over again. And if not...

Somone once told me I was "brave" for wearing a pink tie (at a company Christmas party). There are odd notions out there.

If guys want to think I'm gay because I wear pink shirts, that's OK, because the women *love* pink shirts. If I were gay, I _wouldn't_ wear pink shirts because they're guy repellent babe magnets, I'd wear wife-beaters....er, domestic partner-beaters.
