    First of all, I contribute very little to the 'fun' that is made of your clothes. I have, on the other hand, criticized your clothes extensively and in detail. I think that's only appropriate on this sort of forum--I've never been hostile to criticism directed at what I wear.

    Second, the difference between my height and your clothing is threefold: (1) I never claimed not to be short, (2) clothing and taste are as much a matter off choice as birth, and (3) for the last f*cking time, this is a forum for discussing clothes.



    If you press me, I'll respond to this point by point, but I think it's pretty clear what's going on here. You can take comfort in the fact that there are many who agree with your perspective, but I really couldn't care less.


    Criticism is the grown-up version of making fun. I don't need to take comfort in anything, Foo. Try to be more true to yourself and to who you are both here and real life, and I'm sure you'll be far less bitter and awkward.

    To calm this threak the fuck down I'd like to make dishonorable mention of Moo's wife and Mafoos big head and smalltime furniture.

    Making fun of someone as a kid by saying "haha, your pants suck, did your mom get them from Walmart" equates to saying "your suit jacket fits like shit" on the Internet. It's literally the same thing. Some people like to think that because they're older and "more sophisticated" now, their criticism holds value and is important and not simply a jab or stab at someone (aka, a "make fun").

    Your chance to vote for multiples was in the preceding poll that narrowed things down to this one.

    You know, you really need to keep up on things.

    You know, I didn't notice until you pointed it out, but they really are very tiny, especially considering that he obviously works out, so you'd think they'd stretch out a little. Perhaps it was just very, very cold?

    Wait, I'm confused (seriously not being ironic). This is a men's clothing forum. I thought we were supposed to be here to talk about clothes and how they fit. I figured having your clothes critiqued was the point of posting faceless pictures here anonymously for a bunch of people to judge. Foo takes it like a champ, but short jokes are making fun by any definition, clothing critique seems to be the entire point, no?

    That said, I'm definitely not voting here.

    Criticism is the grown-up version of making fun. I don't need to take comfort in anything, Foo. Try to be more true to yourself and to who you are both here and real life, and I'm sure you'll be far less bitter and awkward.

    To keep it purely academic, I find KB's egregious lack of attention to fit to be the most distasteful thing of all. Sure, it's funny, but really....lots of money + elephant boots + worst fit ever = ZERO taste.

    oh, and Moo v. Foo is some of the best stuff ever. It's like watching two dogs chase each other's tail.
