    I don't really see why you're getting snippy about it. I like to dress the way I like to dress. Any attention I get from it, be it positive or negative, doesn't bother me. Life's too short to worry about what some random, tenuous acquaintances in class think of how I dress, and it's certainly too short to worry about what people on the internet think of how I dress. If I dress a couple notches more formally than I should, well, I may as well focus on dressing as well as I can at that level of formality.

    Side note: I find it confusing that you mention that college students all wear x as if to justify only wearing x as a college student, and then almost immediately follow that with "most people dress like shit." I wasn't going to bring up getting complimented again, but since you did, I also find it confusing that you say I'd stand out in an undesirable way -- which I'd imagine would be people thinking I dress badly -- but then say that the compliments I get -- which represent people thinking I dress well, not badly -- don't count. Would you be willing to clarify?



    You couldn't just have taken the interview in your dorm?

    Sorry bout the job, by the way.

    Most people do dress like shit. For the people that do dress well, most are casual, or at the most button down and chinos (no tie).

    People commenting on your clothes doesn't necessarily mean they think it looks good. If I wore a neon green suit I'd certainly get comments but that doesn't mean it looks good.

    A compliment and a comment are different things. I didn't mean to bring up compliments to justify my clothing (at least not in the sense of "if these people like it, it must be good") but rather to indicate that at least a substantial proportion of people like the way I dress, and therefore if I did care about what others thought of me (and I would be lying if I said I didn't at least a tiny bit), the other however-much-percent would have to be spitting at my feet to make me change the way I dress. Or, in other words, I'm not getting bad reactions.

    it's not that compliments are disingenuous (I truly believe that most people don't know what they actually like*), it's that the ways of dressing that attract compliments aren't necessarily in line with what you'd be hoping.

    For example, simply by wearing a suit at class you're standing out. Things that stand out attract comments. Since most people are nice (or at least try not to be rude), most of those comments will be compliments.

    Not that I have a problem with standing out...

    That's fair. However, I don't particularly have a problem with standing out, either.

    They may get compliments .. but 99% of them are subconsciously thinking "why the **** is this guy wearing a suit?"

    This thread has become a terrible fashion blog. Everything comes full circle.

    Not quite. My way of dressing may be objectively terrible, but I'm certainly not trying to pretend it's superior to that of anyone else. It's just how I dress.

    I get that you don't like me, and you don't like how I dress, but how does that make me a faggot or an assclown?

    Fashion is all contextual. Try wearing your Rick Owens on the desert planet Tatooine. Then we'll see who's fashionable. [​IMG]

    If you have the chutzpah to wear that much leather on Tatooine, probably you.

    Balls. If you have the balls to wear Rick Owens on Tatooine, you are probably the most fashionable person around.
