Although less progress is my Asian parents don't actually know about them transitioning, so like, THAT'S going to be a conversation. I don't even know how to explain it in Chinese. On the plus side they're pretty aware of our position on LGBT stuff and knows my partner doesn't wear womenswear, so it won't be a complete shock.
More on clothes: I actually think that if I eventually figure out what I want to wear, I'll end up looking less SF-approved than even now. If it goes well it'll be a LabelKing-esque dandy, if it goes poorly, I'll just be another fashion victim. Ah, the excitement of uncertainty!
I think it'll be tough figuring out when my decisions are simply different from the SF line, or if they are legitimately bad taste, I'm sure especially for now it'll be more the latter, but if I'm honest I have no intention ending up often dressing like people on WAYWRN, though I want to be able to do that sometimes as well.
I tried a cream/ecru shirt in the recent past, and I couldn't do much of anything with it. Granted my wardrobe is rather limited, and one must take into account the particular shade of off-white, but I have just found light blues and clean white to be so much more versatile and pleasing, that it hardly seems worth the effort.
Could it just be a skin color thing? I mean I'm pretty pale for an Asian guy but I feel like light blue often contrasts too much in warmth from my skin and stands out as even more stark than white.
I lot of the argument for blue shirt over white is that it's "warmer" and less stark, but I've found the reverse to be the case for me. It always feels like it stands out. That said it MIGHT be because I just don't wear them enough? I don't know. And yeah, cream/off-white do look a bit more like lived-in white shirts, I would've thought that's the point to a degree, to give it a more casual air to pair with tweedy casual stuff.
