    that's where I think that well-dressed me and well-dressed women differ. I think it's a combination of the ubiquity of poorly dressed males (i.e they're expected to not know how to choose clothing, or the low standards of "anything with a collar is dressy") and the fact that women tend to see men in tight clothes as effeminate that renders females unable to choose an outfit for their partner, or anyone of the opposite sex. Women who dress well, for themselves, have all the requisite tools (fit, fabric, colour, texture etc.) to create a great wardrobe for a male, but I believe it is their perceptions that hold them back from doing so. There are obvious exceptions to the rule, but through my observations, it is by and large valid.

    the difference really comes in when males who know how to dress properly value fit, fabric and pattern for themselves and, because of the socially accepted view regarding female fashion, they have no inherent reservations, other than what looks ugly. By socially accepted views (I admit I am wording it poorly, but it is really for lack of a better term) I mean that women are seen to be more likely to experiment and 'step out of the box' so to speak, with clothing. This is why I feel like I can help my girl put together something nice, whereas she has trouble finding anything that would look good on me.

    How are the Nike x Undercover collections so popular? Is the intersection of the running and SF demographics huge?

    If I wanted to do this, I'd make a stencil and paint them on.

    Those Outcast by The Cast flag tees/tanks at UO are popping.

    Probably can find a pair of chucks or vans that happen to be flag printed too.

    yeah he's cool but its kind of like what i'm trying to avoid. i like the idea of worn out denim jacket + flag though, just maybe not as a bandanna

    yeah that JC scarf is pretty perfect, but i'm not sure if i'm a lightweight scarf in the spring kind of guy. I'm sure I'll keep you all updated with what I come up with. also considering branded apparel for like coca cola and budweiser and marlboro. but i think supreme did a budweiser thing a few years back so maybe that's a bust?
