If that's really the reason, then I don't see why it wouldn't, haha.

Quite a few Jehovah's Witnesses I have encountered have been very well turned out. They give compliments on my appearance freely and receive them graciously from me.

As a general matter, I don't dress in the expectation of receiving compliments, but I get them with considerable frequency--two of them today.

"Do you expect compliments when dressing up?"
 
 In regards to the original question: I think that nearly all the guys posting in the WAYWN threads are looking for compliments or they wouldn't post there. Some are looking for fit opinions but if the fits are bad they get their egos crushed.
 
 FWIW- I got a compliment this morning from a coworker...

Well yeah, but what about strangers on the street for example?

The hipster barista is gushing our the compliments, I think I introduced him to a new word: tweed.

I don't post there because I know my shoulders are not perfect and I tend to don non-SF approved items such as the occasional pork-pie, bowler, necklace, plus fours with knee socks, etc... not all at once, then I am a circus freak, but used sparingly with great effect.

And I wondered about the hate for the driving/flat cap. Pretty much a essential staple in my neighborhood.

Where do you live? Yorkshire in the 1930s?

 

(only joking, I have a couple of flat caps, but I've never been anywhere where they've be considered a staple these days).

St Paul. Where kilts aren't uncommon.
