I give my friends shit about plenty of stuff, so I don't mind taking a little over my clothes. That said, it doesn't happen very often.

Everyone else finished with that meme four months ago, the new thing is photoshopping axolotls into windowsills so it looks like they're just benignly peering in, all, "hey what's up, how about these external gills?"

I only get compliments. When I dress like shit, no one says a thing. Bitches.

axolotls are like mudkips in real life

People tend to say I dress nice and I only get compliments. Sure, sometimes it's a backhanded compliment like, "Oh, you are soooo metrosexual." The only time I get really teased is from my guy friends for dressing too "gay." Well, whatever - you gotta be comfortable with your own skin and not worry about what other people think of you.

people spend too much time worrying about what other people think and how they might be seen. You live life through your own eyes, not other people's, so fuck 'em and do what you want.

I'm quick witted and on-point with my comebacks, so if anyone has anything negative to say about me (included my clothes), I tend to reduce their social standing to those within earshot quite significantly, and they tend not to I'll reply with something like "Oh, so I suppose I should dress like the mannequin from *insert whatever store they look like they shop at* instead?" or "Heaven forbid somebody should have class... Maybe I should trade my clothes with a hobo like you did." Severity of insult depends on the severity of the criticism, and whether it's intended to insult or is just observational. But yeah, humour/confidence/wit tends to protect pretty comfortably against insults, but realistically, if you're confident enough in the way you carry yourself, you should normally get more compliments than criticism.

Yeah its pretty awesome when someone rips on your clothes and you say something to the effect of, "Why do you care how I dress? You obviously don't care about the way you do." zing

Bow's response above I like. Referencing clothing brands in an insult on the other hand, I could see that backfiring. Telling someone they look like a BR ad might be knee-slapping material for SF Comedy Hour but is hardly a zing to rest of the world. I think when someone calls you a metrosexual (and assuming you take offense), the last thing you want to do is come off like an actual metrosexual.

Amjack: Nice tight jeans, gaywad.

Steezy SFer: Yeah, well I love how the fused lapels on your Hugo Boss is already bubbling... suckah! BWAHAHA

Rest of crowd: [Silence]
