    pretty shocking. its not like this is a bad thing though, makes me stand out. Kinda annoying when you buy a new shirt/shoes and they all buy the same thing the next week though. A friend was giving me shit about spending 200 on a jacket, the next day he was talking about some 200 dollar fucking magic card he bought. facepalm.

    All of my guyfriends dress atrociously with no thought to anything sartorial related. Its either regular guy PacSun Tshirt, distressed Levi's or hypebeasty loud graphic T's/westerns and vans.

    Don't hate, a tournament worthy deck would probably cost more than the average outfit here.

    All of my friends dress poorly/average, but they don't criticize me for the the money I spend on clothes. On the contrary, I usually get compliments on specific garments or fit.

    I don't really have any friends, but the d'n'b weekly I go to on Wednesdays is filled with people so badly dressed it is almost not to be believed.

    (That's yours truly in the background looking dead. Admittedly, I'm not much better dressed.)

    I'm almost positive there was a thread exactly like this a few months ago, but I can't find it either.

    TG's photos are neat. And there he is, yes, looking dead, exactly as stated.

    People can tell I wear stuff they haven't seen before. For the most part, if you haven't seen it before, even if you kinda like it, you are unsure about it. That's usually where they are with it until they get the gist of what I'm going for.

    In my experience, fat acquaintances nearly never say anything. Hipsters never say anything. New acquaintances never say anything. Old, close friends who I haven't seen in a minute will notice something new.

    I have actually been thinking that dressing 'nicer' was probably a mistake, as I have enough things that separate me from the average joe as it is, I didn't need to dress funny, too. I think dressing nicely has made me even more wildly intimidating than I already am. People used to have to actually talk to me before they figured out I was nuts, now they can tell just by looking.

    Out of what I have had commented, it's nearly always cherry RW GT's. I live in a city of 6 mil and I have never seen boots on another guy or anyone wearing chambray.

    From the 7 tees+2pairs of pants+2 pair of shoes+2coats=wardrobe to bigger fashion whores than me. They either don't care of approve/share the interest.

    They dress absolutely horribly! The few people that I know who do care about fashion think that Urban Outfitters is the absolute epitome of style and taste. For the most part they are indifferent to my fashion spending habits, as I am not foolhardy enough to tell anyone how much my shit costs.
    -edit: lolz at Tagut's greensboro party. This is what 90% of the young people in North Carolina look like.

    1. They dress like most of the rest of middle-class America
    2. They couldn't care less about what I wear or what I spend on clothes

    Friends dress very casually, with no real attention to any aspect of dress other than the functional necessity (keep warm, not get arrested).

    Friends accept and occasionally comment on what I wear, a few will occasionally make the odd 'gay' remark, one friend is sometimes worried about me being the brunt of jokes, insults, etc because of what I wear (hasn't happed at all really, but wouldn't bother me if it did, seems to bother him though).

    Kind of surprised at the responses here.

    I consider a good chunk of my friends to have their own style and care about how they look. I would say a good number of them have great style that is outside the mold and suits their personalities to a T.

    Just thinking about it though I noticed that the ones in creative industries tend to be that way while my friends in finance, trading and publishing could care less. Anyone else notice that?

    Yeah, naturally one's work and lifestyle has a big influence on one's clothing/style. Also if they're already being creative in one way, it is easier for them to be creative in another (such as clothing).
