    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I do what I can . . .



    Sometimes packages look more attractive with the proper wrappings.

    This conversation has produced the following:

    Wear whatever you want.
    People should not and will not judge you for what you're wearing.
    Comfort trumps all.

    Where am I? :confused:

    here is where i kind of disagree. i want to look as best as i can whether i am wearing coat and tie, or khakis and sweater, and i try and give them the same attention to detail as i do when wearing a coat and tie. i get not everyone is that way, but for me, why not always look as good as you can? i mean, yeah, when im in bed watching tv in my shorts, or out playing playing basket ball, im not worried about my combinations, but as long as i am out and about, it is my goal to both be as comfortable as possible and try and look as good as i can. there is no good enough. ymmv.

    No one says people wont judge you for what you are wearing, but who cares about being judged? If I lived my life based on what other people thought I should do, I'd be a monk who spends all day reciting the Bhagavad Gita. Srsly.

    Jeans are almost always bad. There. I said it.

    Consider yourself vindicated, BB. I am unreasonable. :)

    as to being judged. people will judge you, and that just life. the only question is, is this a person that may affect your life someday or not. if not, who cares, if yes, you are an idiot to ignore how you are being perceived.

    Interesting observation, I agree with you, the shoulders does flatter your frame, but I feel that it's a more "formal" look, which can be good or bad depending on your lifestyle. As my taste is concerned, I'd like to see you in the F&H's draped torso with a longer length and more extended shoulder, keeping the slope with a bit more roping. Yeah, I'm a believer [​IMG]. However, you do have a physique that can pull off different silhouette styles, enjoy. [​IMG]
    Regarding the square, Rubinacci has some patterned squares with cream as the base color, it'd complement your wardrobe.

    I would caveat this slightly. I'd say "Is it a person I respect?" If so, then their opinion matters to me. If not, it doesn't.

    I think most of the opinions expressed here were individual opinions, i.e. I will not judge other's for what they're wearing. Others might very well judge me, and to continue with stitches point, other people's opinions do not always affect one negatively. It very much depends on ones profession, role in society and location.

    This is a good point. I have no role in society and so feel, perhaps, inordinately free to wear what I want. [​IMG]

    i agree with this, and i would say that that would be included in what i meant in my comment. i also meant, is this a person that may be in a position to get me a job/invest in me/help me get my kids something they need......

    *Man enters dark studio apartment. His 5 cats come to greet him.*

    Talking to himself: "Mr. Cuddlesworth, the neighborhood cookout was a great success! Sure, I spilled barbeque sauce on my tie and the 90-degree temperature caused me to sweat right through the vest of my three-piece suit, but I was only confused for a Jehovah's Witness once, so all-and-all it was a success!"

    Good point. When you put it that way it makes perfect sense. You know, I used to be a hardcore punk rocker in my younger and more vulnerable years (for too many moons ago), and although my outward appearance has changed drastically, my radical love of going against the grain has not. For better or worse. lol

    Rarely, but also, I think the thing with jeans is that there's always something you could be wearing that's better: tweed sports jacket and...coloured twills? Corduroy? Flannel? I have definitely been known to wear jeans with a jacket and no tie, and it's a nice comfortable, casual look for a grown man. But really, unless you're Iggy Pop, blue denim could always be swapped for a better option I feel.

    I don't think I'd ever go anywhere near "barbecue sauce" by choice.
