Responding to Unsolicited Advice/Criticism - Page 3

post #31 of 39
i take some shit once in a while for dressing well, but most of it is just good ball breaking. If you dress well all the time, expect to get ribbed a bit, it comes with the territory in the environment we live in.

That being said, those people dont nessecarily think you're wrong, you'll know the day they come to you asking what they should be wearing for a formal occasion, interview, ect.....then you take them shopping, snag them a $2000 suit for $500 or less, have it tailored by the best tailor in your area, then find them a deal on some Aldens, RL shoes, or similar and i guarantee you are the man afterwards.

My GF thought i was nuts.....she just bought her first pair of Kate Spade shoes yesterday.

my brother thought i was nuts....but guess who he asked to help him dress for an interview? you guessed it, he mentioned to me he needed a suit at 7pm the night prior.....i took him to the stores that all know me by name and snagged him a suit 75% off retail, a pair of allen edmonds, a belt, shirt, socks, and even had the pants hemmed for him that night...because all the sales people and tailor knew me well.

My dad, wont spend a dime on clothes....also wont get dressed up in anything except the high end 'over-priced' clothes that i buy for him on his birthdays and christmasses.


You do better by proving them wrong and saying nothing, then saying alot and looking like an ass (I've done both, btw, and looking like a stuck-up douch doesnt do well)

It is a waste of time defending or explaining why you wear what you wear especially to people who don't share your sartorial tastes. Cultural differences + family relationships = huge problem in debating/fighting to support your point. Take the high road and don't lower yourself to their level.

I had never heard of ALDO, so I googled it and apperantly they are also in the UK.

What do you think of these boots? I like the elegance of the square toe when combined with the kl@$$y stitching and broguing. Might be the perfect thing when I am EngJacking it up on a Saturday night in Covent Garden.

On sale to! With the weak Pound some of you guys might want to get in on it!!

Good sir, while I thank you for bringing that lovely specimen of footwear to my attention, I feel it is my duty to open your eyes to a whole "next level" of Am/EngJacking. These fine boots would be most fashionable when combined with your favorite 7fam dirty wash jeans and Express graphic T underneath your Kenneth Cole 3 button peak lapel sport coat.

All for a modest £13.99 more.

What say you?

Now those do look nice, but I'm not sure if I should be wearing brown out in town at night.

This is a great start. Silence can be more powerful than words. To top it off say in a uninterested way "This coming from the closeted alcohol made me do it...hmm". Or of course go with the classic I am banging your sister and her twat is lovely wanna smell.

I agree. I tend to not attempt to explain or justify what I do or what I wear.
