Good point. When you put it that way it makes perfect sense. You know, I used to be a hardcore punk rocker in my younger and more vulnerable years (for too many moons ago), and although my outward appearance has changed drastically, my radical love of going against the grain has not. For better or worse. lol
i too am a contrarian by nature. i dress the way i do because i like it, not to conform to anything. and for the most part, i think SFers who care as much as they do about the way they dress, are in fact, contrarian to most of society.
