First, off, apologies for being days behind the thread, but...

BTW Hendrix, I really do prefer the nerdy type (how fun is a girl you can't watch LOTR with?). Shyness is kinda boring though.
Thank you EFV. My GF (shit, fiancee... have to get used to that) loves LOTR/Game of Thrones/Star Wars/Star Trek, but no one would peg her for a nerd by the way she dresses and acts. I'm definitely the "shy" one (introvert) in the relationship. Our biggest style debates are that she doesn't like brown (including shoes) and that she likes monochromatic color palettes (one dominant color + neutrals). She also hates pleats and higher rise trousers, which I believe have their place. She always mocks me w/ the SNL Clint Eastwood "My Grand.... Torino" bit. (My argument: suit pants should be cut to look good with the jacket. It doesn't matter how they look on their own.) She also prefers symmetrical tie knots, but I just think that's her quasi-OCD.

In the end though, everyone has different perspectives on what looks good, what is sexy, what isn't.
If I was totally concerned with what turns girls on I wouldn't wear:
anything with broguinganything brown
I'd just go around every day in leather jacket, slim jeans, and zip boots.
In the end, personal style is more important and attractive in it's own right.
There we go. Though she actually insists I wear a pocket square for the wedding. One of the other great debates is that I really want to wear a carnation instead of the typical "boutonniere" monstrosities you see today. ("But carnations are cheap!")
Of course, the fact is I didn't dress anything like this when we started dating. Tight jeans (which she now makes fun of me for), ridiculous "going out shirts", and plenty of man-jewelry.
And finally, I always thought "jawn" was Philly slang for basically... anything.
