My question is not how to explain SF (there is no explaining this place), but rather if there is an umbrella term for this sort of interest which at least gives some impression of not being.... you know.... stuck up, poncy, pretentious, etc...
I am the eternal 'there is a way' person, but here, friend, there is no way to let someone know you are into clothes, in the same way that you can never tell someone your penis is large without becoming a cock yourself. I always tell people that they wouldnt belive how small I am and leave it to them to decide whether I am serious or not.
Think of it this way: what do you think when a woman tells you she cant stop buying clothes? My first thought is 'whoa, dis bitch gonna empty my bank account an I aint gonna have no knots a benjamins befo she thru with me'.
My personal belief regarding our 'hobby' is that this is a personal journey, and its nice that way, in much the same way that Andy Kauffman's humor was often only funny to him. If you dont do this stuff exclusively for yourself, then you are doing it for the ego boost, and you most likely have had a penis enlargement to boot.
The point is, other people already notice, in the same way that if you were naked they could see how endowed you are, no need to go further with either one...
