Finally, Reevolving: you know I love you, man. Like I said, you are a true original. You are something else. You make me smile. All that said, my line about "crowdsourcing your taste" remains true. You need to develop personal preferences in your clothing. Instead, you keep trying to have your cake and eat it too. On one hand, you want to dress-by-numbers and pseudo-statistically optimize your wardrobe per what you think will maximize public approval. On the other hand, you get very defensive whenever you receive feedback that doesn't corroborate your predetermined conclusions and habits. Perfect example? The "Do I dress like an old man?" threak. You spent an inordinate amount of time and energy dismissing everyone who answered that question in the affirmative, and even those who tried to provide concrete and specific reasons why. Bottom line: don't ask questions about whose answers you are not prepared to be receptive and objective. At this point you're going to say what you always say, which is something along the lines of "But the answers I didn't like weren't even valid because of X, Y, and Z." Think about that stock rationalization for a second. Are you really getting a bunch of "invalid" replies, or are you just getting replies you don't want to hear?
