Good thing I'm married so I can wear whatever I goddamn well please.

Which usually means SF-approved high-waisted mid-grey trousers, blue shirt, and plaid jacket biggrin.gif

Though not only with regards to contrived hipster girls, this is one of my favorite things in the world to do.

You should wear more Barbour.

Oh yeah? Your profession is as dry and esoteric as mine?

I'm a mathematical physicist.

That takes the cake on a dry profession. What is a mathematical physicist doing on SF anyway? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It's a subject that certainly can be exceedingly interesting and even approachable to a non-technical audience. However, this does not mean that I am always inclined to present it in such a way. Especially for pretentious hipster audiences that want to think science is cool, then go off and explain about how their art is kind of like science and explores the possibilities in the world - even though I've probably already told them why said possibility is an impossibility. This is usually the point at which reality interjects upon whatever their particular fantasy is, the intriguing science guy just becomes an incomprehensible buzzkill, and their eyes just sort of glaze as they drift away. It's awesome.

Remind them of the higg's-bosson then. That should put the world into perspective.

This can be tricky, because usually they've read news articles about it and feel like they know something. There are however other tons of other cool things which are far less well known.

Maybe at some point I will PM the other scientists on here so that we can start an "Ask us about stuff" thread.

I've had women specifically compliment my trousers for being high waisted, but a lot of the women I know are exceptionally fashionable.

And I agree with Big A, all women like a well dressed man. Well dressed isn't the same as dressed up, so it's not as easy as that.

I was at a physical therapy appointment today and the nurse was ga-ga over my brace trousers.

However, as a general matter, women have never been into my clothes. Gay men, on the other hand ...
