    I wish that I could tell you, but I usually fly over Chicago and details are difficult to discern.

    In terms of academic and career, I never suffer, my supervisor always likes what I wear, never complain why everyone is in boring suits where I am breaking 3pc and PS all the time

    ime, the sport coat has been a death sentence if worn after 9pm. not only do I stand out like a sore thumb amongst my coworkers, but now It appears that I belong with the group of suited gents huddled in the corner smoking cigars.

    You guys are lucky.

    What with my astigmatism and glasses, and my shortness, I look like a nerd or rather get accused of wearing a sport coat ironically i.e. a hipster.

    In fact, the other day I wore some thick black frame glasses and thought 'damn I look like foo', except without the bespoke, and other things.

    Im also younger and get this all the time! I understand how it could be harder to approach someone whos good looking/well dressed so it just means that we have to take the initiative and make the first move. Naturally girls like guys who are in better shape, take care of them selves, and are well dressed so you should rarely get turned down. . . .I have been told im a pretentious prick numerous times thou [​IMG]

    Do any of you "unapproachable" and "pretentious" guys find that the women who do step up and approach you are generally more compatible?
