if someone complemented me on my clothes, usually i do get alot of complements on my dress by women (hey, just stating the facts, not boasting here) i just thank them and return the complement in a tasteful way too.
they all know my shoes are way expensive so they already know i get them from exclusive sources. so they dont assume i get them at shoe mart or anything.
but if someone says 'nice tie, macys?'
i actually thank them and get into a little small talk on where i got it and what makes it so qualitative, like i will show them the 7 fold construction and whatever . in a casual , comfortable way , and usually they are very intrigued and they say something like" wow, i guess i learn something new everyday" or " i never knew there was all that stuff that goes into neckties"
or something like that. not that i want to boast, or that i want to correct them on their mistake thinking i am kiton rather than mens wearhouse, i dont care about that, but the joy of sharing the info i know about the clothes i wear, i like to share that like a jesus convert running around always ready to share the gospel fanatically.
