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.

you make those around you uncomfortable and embarrassed

I felt weird just reading those "comebacks"

I don't think anyone actually believes he says those things.

I do love lobbing a good hobo insult. "I say, dear boy, did you barter those trousers from a hobo?!"

My shoes always get more compliments than my clothes. Inquiries about what brand they are or whatever, is rare. All I get from strangers about clothing is a simple "you look sharp" or "why are you dressed up?" That's about it. *shrug*

Does anyone get alot of compliments from "the gay community"...I tend to get at least one a day from someone who could be visibly determined to be gay.

Funny enough I got alot more compliments in my "grphix tee+blazer" days than I do now. =(
promised myself I'd never do that again.

You sound like one of those guys who gets paid to write for a niche interest blog/magazine/whatever, so you never had to develop beyond your comfortable self image (and writing style). Honestly, "fuck you" is a better comeback than 90% of everything, especially when you're saying it to someone you don't know. It shows that you disrespect them, but also that you don't care too much about them.

Then again, Jet sounds like a Barney's showroom salesperson with Tourette's and Wernicke's Aphasia, so I mean whatever.

I got several comments about my Cazal eyeframes last night at a restaurant. I suspect with those sorts of things, people are compelled to comment whether or not they actually appreciate the look.

A simple shoulder shrug is usually a good enough response imo
