I know that in jeans especially it is easy to tell between men/women jeans, but what about jackets?
well, anyways im just trying to sooth my conscience before buying a "Women's Hoodie."

I'm Asian 5"10, 19 years old, and i was looking for a short sleeve hoodie, and one caught my eye, but its for girls. I want one exactly like it, the way the short sleeve is done and everything... but what makes it a "womens" hoodie? if i wear it will someone point out that its an obviously girl clothing somehow?

Here's a link to what im talking about: http://www.overstock.com/Clothing-Sh...:referralID=NA


if you know a brand that sells similar clothing, but for guys please let me know-thanks.

Noway!!!!, but the main question is would you be able to tell if it was girl clothes if a guy was wearing it?

No. You'll need a surgeon. Alteration shops have little access to anaesthetics, scrub rooms, post-op recovery facilities, etc.

Now a tailor could help you if you bought a mens hoodie and then asked to cut off the sleeves and stitch a cuff like in the photo.

I didn't know homeless men were concerned about looking like women while wearing women's clothing. That jacket is something a bum would wear.

If you don't mind my asking, why in the world would you wear that abomination?

When I was in high school I put on one of my mom's blazers and thought that it looked kind of badass because the sleeves were short and the length was short. It was kind of like those really fashion forward dior jackets. The only issue was teh drape in the chest. My mom's got herself a rack.

Oedipus complex much? You mentioned just a minute ago (or that's when I read it) that your girlfriend has a 30 inch chest, meaning not much of a rack, so I gather you're trying to overcorrect.

This is wrong. Embrace your inner hubris!

My mother invented the Oedipus complex. When I mentioned my girlfriend having a 30" chest I also said that girl's boob size has nothing to do with the number, just the inches around the underboobish area. I've never met a bigger breast fan than myself, trust me!
