    how does one's interest about clothing decrease when income increases?

    There is often a correlation between the number of hours spent in the workplace and subsequent income increases, especially when you are younger. And the more dedicated you are to success in the workplace, the less time you will have available for thinking about or shopping for clothing. Add to that an office where slovenly business casual is the norm, and even your interest in work clothing is likely to decline.

    Essentially if you spend the majority of your life in an environment where clothing does not matter and your mind is always constantly centered around other things, it is doubtful you will ever look good.

    Synthese looks really good, but i'm not sure if the shorts would maybe look better ever so slightly lowered so they are marginally more defined or slightly higher so it drapes entriely. It looks so good though.
    artishard116 that looks really good too, the Geller trench is a wondeful piece and appears to suit you very very well.

    I found the opposite to hold true for me. Then again, I can likely attribute that to me being a huge time thief who lurked on SF several hours a day.

    Normally don't like your fits, but this is great. Edit: also, dont autofocus when you shoot a reflection. Its seems like thats what you are doing and that's why you are slightly out of focus.

    Yeah that's (obviously) what I do so the mirror is in focus but not me, too lazy not to autofocus if it's just a picture like this (for online consumption). Good enough, no?

    If you're spending several hours a day on clothing forums (as opposed to spending those hours furthering your career or business) then you are getting a huge daily exposure to an environment where clothing matters.

    And saying that "clothing matters" here is really an understatement. What do you think would happen if at that hypothetical (but all too common) business casual workplace your co-workers were as quick to publicly ridicule your outfits as they are on this forum?

    This forum enforces its own unique social constraints on the participants in far more coercive manner than one would typically experience in the physical world. Yet most here appear to overestimate the degree to which their successes are the result of their own refined tastes as opposed to merely the actions of one whom has learned how to please the tribe. The best posters here are more cognizant of this fact, relying less on the tribe's opinions yet still trying to fit in and relate in their own way.

    Fuuma is one of the few posters on here that I can envision looking good 20 years from now. The majority of posters here will likely look awful.
