Or maybe it's just that the fantasy that most MCers want to live in is boring and conservative. This. I get the sense that a lot of the MC guys don't have a great sense of personal style. For these people, the Men's Clothing forum, where rigidly adhering to the rules is championed behavior, is a sort of virtual security blanket. Many of these guys seem to have the disposable income for the favored brands, so it's really just a matter of shelling out the cash and following the rules if they want to be "stylish." The same to a lesser degree is true of this forum, but like others have mentioned, it's a lot easier to look bad in a SW&D outfit, since there are fewer rules to serve as safety railings. Though boring, a lot of the MC outfits wouldn't look so comical if many of the posters weren't dumpy fatasses.
