It was along the lines of that because it is frowned upon for men to discuss traditionally 'effeminate' matters, the loudness and enthusiasm of some gays and women in regards to matters of style, taste and design is mistaken for actual expertise in style, taste and design.

 

Issues like this irretrievably become littered with generalisations. And so, fittingly, I venture some thoughts with that disclaimer.

 

I echo DR's thoughts, and how he tries to dichotomise 'taste' and 'expertise', in terms of dressing. I might even add a further dichotomy between 'clothes' and 'dressing'. These 4 things are at a constant interplay with each other.

 

Having a certain 'taste' in 'clothes' doesn't necessarily equate to having the 'expertise' to 'dress' oneself. It's not mutually exclusive, either.

 

A 'taste' in certain choice(s) of outfit(s) might be a indicator or orientation, but a flawed one in the majority of situations.

 

Bad taste in clothes doesn't discriminate genders or sexual orientations. Neither does expertise in dressing.

 

And, that, I think, is why it is hard to decipher each other's sexual orientation on this forum thread -- we have in common the pursuit of bettering our expertise in dressing.

Excellent.  We've got three now, myself included.

 

Perhaps drinks after work. Venue options?

Go for it Pete. If your lady friend likes it, that is all the endorsement you need. Big lapels mean bigger everything......send the right message.

Jason, great news re: the little one. Rob was elated with his new little princess, he had an O&J extravaganza! It is only fair you do the same. That orange tie of yours has got me frothing from ear to ear.
thanks, we'll see on having a sale. It's fairly new stock though and selling through well though, but maybe.

Those that wear belts with their suits, where do you get them from and what width? Previous casual belts made by Zissou (pretty happy with them), should I just go through him but at a thinner width?

I like my tailfeather belts.

GF's old man is an OBGYN and apparently that's the current medical opinion. Years of experience, apparently!

He's also a big fan of your ties, for whatever that's worth :D

Guys, just came across this on Stumbleupon. No wonder people find this dressing well thing hard...

And what would be the exact mechanism by which this would happen?

Could be a breakthrough here.
