Does anyone here have friends or acquaintances that love to steal your personal style? I had a small problem with this a few years ago when I realized my close, personal friend was buying the same clothing items I was, same brands and styles and everything. After my girlfriend said something about it, I got kind of pissed (the territorial element kicking in). Now I'm kind of going through the same thing with my roommate. He isn't very fashion forward and kind of wears whatever (not to be mean, but most of what looks hideous). I wear a mustache and I didn't think he would take to what I said literally when I told him to grow one and wear his hair long. I was kind of being sarcastic at the time but I didn't think he would actually do it. I guess, as for myself, I don't go out and do whatever people tell me to. To take it a little further, all his friends are growing 'staches as some kind of trend. I don't consider myself a trendsetter and rather hate it when things I do catch on. Maybe I'm being a narcissistic asshole but what the fuck?

Who cares, I mean, if he was wearing the same outfit as you, the same day I would see it as creepy as fuck but not much else. The truth about style is no one is original. You probably saw someone wearing something similar to your style and decided to copy them and they did the same to someone else and so on.

You have a mustache and long hair?

Mustache but no long hair. And yeah, it did get creepy at some point, particularly when I though I was looking in the mirror. The thing with my current roommate is that I told him I would be willing to help him out with his style a little bit and I think his idea is to copy whatever I wear, including the stache. Wouldn't that annoy you?

I've never had a stache, nor would I consider one, so it's not really an issue for me.


He does sound a bit creepy though. Him copying your clothes is the last thing i'd be worried about. He's probably masturbating on your bed while you're out of the house.

You are masturbating on his bed? Or yours?

I started the trend of men wearing plain navy blue suits to work. I'm really angry that everyone is copying my style. It is creepy to walk into a building and see 10 others guys dressed just like me. Life is unfair.

Maybe you're not as stylish as you think you are. I could never easily replicate LK, Get Smart, SuperBobo, yfyf, etc. after all.
