What do you wear when you go out? - Page 4

post #46 of 69
My going wardrobe depends a lot on the season... FYI, I have been recently relegated to the B&T/wannabe yuppie crowd, much to the disdain of LA Guy and Pete. So, my particular wardrobe usually consists of: Winter: Wool flannel or worsted wool slacks with a dress shirt or light knitwear and sport coat. Boots or monkstraps. Fall/Spring: Tropical weight wool slacks or cotton pants, my favs are from Paul Smith and Co-Op, and a button down. Either FC or something with color... A sport coat is optional. Summer: Linen or cotton pants, SS shirt. Oh, and Im looking to buy a pair caramel or lighter colored spit toe bluchers. Jeans can be substituted in any of these situations. I wear boots only when the weather looks a bit nasty, otherwise I prefer loafers, monstraps, or a pair of med brown captoe bals with a medallion.

 Around Boston - jeans, sneakers, either a zip top or a shirt.  Any of the clubs with a dress code (like Pravda) are usually filled with meatheads and bimbos trying to be all New York.  At the places I'd go to in NYC, same deal
You must be dying with the nightlife in Boston.. I was there a few months ago, and all the places had a stupid dress code. They just don't "get it." London is the same way too. which surprised me.

In Boston, I usually go to music clubs with cool bands, rather than going "clubbing". The Middle East is pretty good, as in Paradise, and my local joint is Toad. People recommend Tiki the Bear, but I've never been. Avoid any place in Faneuil Hall or Boylston St., which is usually full or cutout blondes being hit on by lame white dudes (blue shirt, khakis or "dress pants", dark shoes, and short back and sides haircut with too much product.) On the plus side, my NYC and LA friends who have visited me here have all agreed that getting dates in Boston is like shooting ducks in a barrel compared to in those other cities. Thank you Boston men for being so lame.

I can't stand "clubbing." I usually either 1) hate the music selection and thus can't enjoy myself, or 2) when I find a club where I like the music being played, I'm surrounded by greasy drugged out hipster teenagers who find glamour in the "scene," which exists only for image. It's kind of funny to see rich kids spend extra to make themselves look like starving artists. I prefer to go to Jazz Nights and smaller unannounced shows at coffee houses. Occasionally I go to big shows (i.e. Coachella this weekend), but I'm so sick of the clientel that I keep my music obsession to myself and to a few of my closest friends. As for the "cool" actors, I've always thought Benicio Del Toro was awesome because he's so incredibly comfortable. No one would ever doubt his personality, because he always looks so comfortable as himself. He's not absurd in any way, and he isn't a specific image, he's just himself, and that makes him awesome.

I think it's TT the Bear's. Check out Wally's in the south end too.

We are all in our mid twenties to very early thirties. The girls we talked to were college age up to their late twenties, I would guess. It just seems that Boston girls in general do not have their guard up nearly as much as in NYC and LA. Seriously, some club girls in NYC will literally not acknowledge the presence of a guy standing right in front of her introducing himself. It's luckily never happened to me, but whoah, that is cold. Can't comment about Boca Raton.

Dudes .. Go to montreal if you want to party (if you can). Montreal girls are very sexy and playful. You can grab their ass and they won't say a word .. sometimes even boobs Toronto girls are pretty sexy, hot, and well dressed .. but not with personality of montreal girls.

Totally hijacking the thread, but this is just not cool. It's a sad dude that needs to cop a feel and just hope not to get backhanded (seriously, do this in LA, and you are gonna feel the heat - no doubt.) The whole idea is that not that a girl will tolerate you, but will pretty much want you to the point where she is making the moves on you.

that mini-thread within a thread about ryan phillipe sounded a little creepy to me. gregory, aspire to be yourself and no one else.
Your advice is appreciated. The problem is that this entity 'yourself' is being continually defined and exists only through the sum of actions and choosing. Every choice I make is a redefinition of myself, and hence I cannot 'aspire to be myself' since 'myself' does not exist as a complete entity until I am dead. And who among us can truly say that we have not been influenced by some people we look up to and choose to aspire to be more like them? If by "being oneself" one means looking back at one's past, this is a poor guide for life because it implies repeating the history of choices and actions that one has made in the past. It is better to look outside, and combine the best parts of the best people, to better oneself.
Please tell me that you will not be appearing on MTV's "I Want A Famous Face."

Funny, I've had the exact opposite experience. When I approached the girls in Boston, they would react like I was making some inappropriate suggestion. This was after literally just saying hello - as if they didn't want people to get the wrong idea about them, didn't want to come across as sluts. Then I moved to New York, and within a week I was getting laid like Errol Flynn. To quote Pootie Tang - "Ain't come one, but many tine tanies." I kept that pace until I met a beautiful 22 year old bartender with brown hair and the body of a 17 year old, and now I'm hooked.

Aside from Malkovich in "Les Dangerous Lisasons" etc. I personall think Dr.Hannibal Lecter strikes a fine figure in terms of style, and subtle meance.

Me, I wear whatever's clean. But once I wore a pair of light cotton trousers, one of my Jantzen shirts (sharkfin collar), a light colored tie, and a dark suit jacket. I wore my bone-colored suede Ferragamos, the ones I scored off of eBay for like 40 bucks. The shirt wasn't tucked in, the collar wasn't buttoned, and the tie was loose around my neck. Everyone loved it. Now I know there are some die-hards that would shriek at the thought of wearing a suit jacket without its matching trousers, but I find it to be a sort of guilty pleasure: You know you're breaking some rule, somewhere, but the vast majority of people you run into won't know the difference, and compliment you just the same.
