She thinks she has to dress up to keep up when we go out. Which is perfectly fine by me.

Wow, you sound like quite the catch... :uhoh:

There was a time when most people would frown upon (or worse) what most people are wearing today. That time has gone, but the descent on what people consider acceptable continues.

An example from my experience is a girl who used to wear sweatpants to the office every day (all the men wore suits and women were supposed to wear the equivalent, most did). I am not vocal about my disapproval in public, but a complete lack of standards and negative feedback enables it.

She doesn't mind as long as I fund our investment accounts and ship expensive purchases to the office while making noise about ebay thrift finds. It also helps that her friends think I am stylish so it's more incentive for her if i dress nice.

Don't especially care.

My wife thinks I look handsome...which I do. She jokingly refers to me as "princess" on occasion though when she sees me matching ties and shirts the night before I need to wear them.

That's perturbing. Many men pick out their clothes the night before. My father did. Being called a princess for doing something girly, like shrieking about a new pair of shoes, is understandable, but not for doing something real men actually do.

Idunno if "my father did it" proves it's not girly. Does seem kind of prima donna. As does SF level of interest in clothing in general.

^ That alone may not prove anything, but this is something that was done by men in earlier generations, even those who were not particularly into fashion. You have to pick out your clothes no matter what and a lot of people would rather minimize the amount of tasks they have to do in the morning.

The level of interest isn't girly if it's kept exclusively to SF... the moment a guy starts talking about his clothes, or becomes known among his friends or workplace for having an interest in them, is the moment masculinity (and dignity in general) just goes out the window... and he becomes immediately vulnerable to accusations of vanity. Sprezzatura is a curious thing; it reminds of Daoism in the sense that the instant you bring conscious attention to it, it is destroyed.

I guess if, the night before, you haphazardly grab stuff out of your closet and throw it over your shoulder into a pile on a chair across the room it still counts as manly.
