The RO shirt is ugly and the cardigan in the second fit is unflattering - although that might be the camera angle.
The lack of colour is very difficult for me to handle from all but a few posters. but that's just me.
Yes, as someone just said, caring about your apearance will get a stereotype label thrown at you. The gay label. Of course, if you're gay, then you can broadcast your StyleForum membership to the world and wait for the dudes to roll in. If not, you've got a problem. I think my parents think I'm gay, because whenever I visit them my dad comments that "I look like I put a lot of effort into my clothing," or that "my jeans are kind of tight" or something. It's pretty scary.
The trick is to look amazing without looking like you tried. I must say, that's hard to do.
kgfan5: good fit. Deets please?
I was at a club with some friends a few weeks back and ran into this girl I work with. While chatting and drinking she told me another girl we work with thought I was gay beacuse of how I dressed and because I cared about fashion and stuff. A deep v-neck dsquared2 tee I once wore was one of the things that led her to think that, as I was told. After she told me that, she proceded to ask me herlself if I was indeed gay. Long story short, we ended up hooking up a few hours after that.
I´ve also had friends who have asked me about the clothes I wear and they act all surprised because of the money I spend on sneakers and jeans (even though some of them make much more money than I do). They´ve also never heard of most of the brands I wear. I´m pretty sure I´m the only guy in all of patagonia (a region in argentina with 5 provinces in it, some as big as some european countries, but with very much, much less population) who knows and owns a pair of KVA or YSL.
