I agree with your statement Ali.M I forgot about that, I also get hit on by gay men sometimes. It's a good sign someone thinks you look good :O

I rarely receive any compliments on what I'm wearing, and I generally consider this to be a good thing. Since most people have limited knowledge and appreciation for style, their comments are often not meaningful and may even be indicative of a problem with your outfit.

Most people will compliment you on your clothing because what you're wearing caught their attention. But catching the average person's attention is often be caused by your outfit creating a poor sense of confluence-- i.e. the concept of the body and clothing becoming one and indistinguishable from each other. An outfit may convey poor confluence if you wear clothing that's....

1. Too tight
2. Too loose
3. Mismatched styles
4. Does not match your personality
5. Mismatched to the current environment or activity

Thus rather than seeing an integrated image, others may see you and your clothing as two very seperate things. Once someone spots that you're wearing "fashion", they are likely to comment. This may even result in a compliment since the observer can tell you've made an effort to be "dressed up", thus purveyors of polite small talk (not myself) will feel compelled to complement you.

Usually get one every once in a while when I walk into some stores selling more pricey stuff. Do also get some from my firends, but only when drunk.

You're putting it exactly right, I think. Sartorial remarks often result from errors of conveyance, congruence or context.

Exactly. I rarely get any compliments except on footwear sometimes. Although, "you've got a new ..., nice" used to happen, but not often anymore.

Occasionally I'll get compliments on my fits but I feel like you have to wear something with gaudy graphics and logos to get a lot of compliments around here. I do get a fair amount of comments on my shoes though.
