    Do you know who the real heroes are? The guys who wake up every morning and go into their normal jobs, and get a distress call from the Commissioner and take off their glasses and change into capes and fly around fighting crime. Those are the real heroes.

    Head over to ebassist my man. Totally excellent discussion, occasionally about bass. Often about the people who spend time there.

    do you think all these guys were interested in fashion, cuisine, photography, etc before they had the opportunity to present themselves on the interwebs (tumblr etc.)?

    I doubt it. It's like the whole Instagram thing, where everyone is suddenly some kind of fashion guru or e-celebrity.

    However, I do know a fashion blogger IRL, and she was into it before the whole blogger explosion.

    I know teger wrote that, but I just wanted to chime in. Most people, the vast majority, do dress like crap, and I´m inclined to guess you know (you should if not) that already. So, getting compliments from people - for whom putting a decent outfit on a daily basis would be the equivalent to any of us climbing Mount Everest- don´t really count for much. At least If I wore a suit and got compliments from people in sweats or jeans 2 sizes too big and sporty sneakers, it wouldn´t really mean anything.
    I think dressing that way would make you stand out undesirably because a guy in a suit, in a pool of underdressed people, is always a recipe for being treated as if you´re wanting to be noticed or like you´re trying to be better (or that you are better) due to your wardrobe choices. At least that´s how I see it.

    If you're wearing a suit to class in college, you're going to look like a pretentious assclown. Doesn't matter if it's a great fit or not. Everyone who has said that context matters is absolutely correct. The people who were complimenting you were doing it to be polite/feed your ego, because that kind of dress sense dictates that you have low self confidence and are fishing for compliments to sustain yourself.

    If you want to dress well, wear what everyone else is wearing, but do it better. For example, instead of Levi's, wear APC. Instead of desert boots, wear a pair of Butteros or F+B. Instead of a generic flannel, wear a quality one from RRL or a button down from BoO, Gitman, or EG.

    Mind you, that recommendation is based off the "norm" of my university's fashion, so tailor it to your campus.

    Life's too short to worry about what everyone else's wearing. I like what I wear, and it's not interfering with my social life, so who cares?
