Blue collar wannabes - Why??

post #1 of 96
Thread Starter 
Why does society push us men towards having Blue Collar fashion cues? i.e. wearing work boots (even gentlemen travelers), filson bags, jeans, leather jackets, driving pick up trucks, etc.

Since when is aiming for mediocrity a good thing?

It's fucking rock and roll, bitch. Except the pick up truck. Those are just convenient for hauling furniture or what have you.

I've noticed this. It's like people think we'll be impressed if they inform us all how much they look down on those who work for a living.

Well put. I would rather be a blue collar than a white collar any day of the week.

It's part of the classless society. Use the term "classless" as you deem appropriate.
