    I thought I'd start a top level message but if it's against the forum policy sorry.

    I am curious about the racial and ethnic and national composition here.

    I've seen handles like <<randomkoreandude>>, descriptions like <<Persian bro>> and <<Hebrew homie>> and posts about East Asian big and flat noses not holding sunglasses on.

    So where are you from and how does it hinder your fashion sense?


    I'll start, I am from Montreal, Canada, which seems to be a putdown in this board. My parents are born in Morocco. I don't have any fashion hinderances but I wish I had nicer hair because on bad days it looks like mohair.

    Another winning thread...[​IMG]

    I've been told I'm very nordsinid in appearance, which probably hints at my eastern Chinese ancestry?
    But I've also been told my jaw structure isn't very, ummm, "progressive".

    ^ You can go motoring on them salt flats?

    I forgot the important bit - I'm Taiwanese/Australia, very confused by all the ninjas in Melbourne, and very frustrated at the scarcity of well-made clothing in Australia.

    they do a lot of speed trials there ... ~ 4 years ago they built a super cool race track that i go to sometimes when they hold gt class races. if they carved out a rally race track in one of mountains here it might be a bit more tolerable. [​IMG]

    My eyes, lactose tolerance, and fair skin hint at my Norse-by-way-of-Scotland ancestry, while my concave, pointed nose and small mouth belie the Norman/Celt/Roman mongrel heritage of the English. My narrow chest brings to mind the wastes of Abyssinia while my Lilliputian schlong recalls Inner Mongolia. My athletic prowess would not be out-of-place in Dahomey and my sexual preferences run towards the Iberian.

    I am a true citizen of the world.

    Interesting thread.

    I'm plain old white bread. Irish and german ancestry. I get a bad sunburn before I get tan :). I currently live in St. Louis, but was born and raised in Salina, KS (S-Town). Physically, no fashion hindrances. Geographically, I pretty much have to buy everything online since I don't want to dress exclusively in Rams/Cards/Mizzou/Tapout gear.
