    I shop in the same stores many well respected SF'ers do, buy from the same people they do on ebay, even have the same SA's as some.

    From this we can deduce that the problem must be you.

    I've been shocked that I get complements in school, public, etc. The only time, other than that one kid that called me gay that turned out to be gay once college came along, is SF. But it is a small group of usual people. I belong to many other forums that SF'ers are on and get nothing but complements, never once something negative. And as I said in SC last night, idgaf anymore about the negatives, especially when I follow advice from SF'ers and then another group of SF'ers attacks me. I shop in the same stores many well respected SF'ers do, buy from the same people they do on ebay, even have the same SA's as some; I really don't care anymore what negative things that other regular people have to say. If a professional had something to say I would listen, but I haven't had any issue with that either.

    my god you're intolerable

    I'd be shocked too if I dressed like you. If a majority of the compliments are coming from the general badly dressed public then....

    a bunch of people dress like that at my university because the school colors are bright orange and black (i think they were chosen by someone who was colorblind)

    Nothing wrong with orange and black. Unless you hate orange anyway.

    The only people who joke about my clothes are my family.

    i'm a skinny guy, 5'10 / 136lbs. some of my older relatives/confidants constantly ride me about wearing "skinny jeans" aka my APC new standards.

    that's pretty much about it. i just laugh it off because even if my shit did look ridiculous -- i like the way it looks, and that's all that matters.

    plus, most of the people who say that shit are like...wearing cargo pants and old navy tshirts.

    if they're older you'd think they'd remember the 70's when most dudes were skinny and wore tight clothes.

    I think i saw a thread on MC a while back where someone asked about suits with no ties, and the general opinion was that you're not allowed or something, some posters actually seemed genuinely angry that people think its okay to wear a suit without a tie. then again, thats MC.
    Ok so you know how in sw/d there's the guys that post often in the random fashion thoughts/waywt threads, some guys that don't post a lot but when they do it's good, and the vast majority of the rest are retarded newbies? Think the same thing in mc. Except MC gets trolled far, far more.
    He's like a young kitonbrioni.

    KB just posts pics he doesn't try to argue with people that he looks good. and he has some baller items just he's really old and lost any ability at all to coordinate.

    The last one I remember was from some pleb wearing ed hardy, or the like, in a club who said "did your mommy tuck in your shirt?" to which I responded "she actually picked out my clothes this morning." Though I think it was less about the clothes and more about the fact I was making out with the girl they were with.

    Most people don't mention my clothes, but I generally have a surly demeanor

    I go to a state school in the middle of nowhere, NY. If I wear something as simple as a button down and slim strait jeans I get "fag" hurled right at me. Of course I ignore it...but this one time one of my professors made an announcment for a "gay rights community event" and then asked me to tell everyone more about it.

    I dont even dress that well at school!


    on a side note: bitches love finding out your not gay.
