    I wear jeans and button ups almost everyday. i've been working blazers more and more....this forum is slowly having me throw a pocket square in there.....i guess that makes me preppy? upscale douchebag perhaps? refined NJ guido? eurotrash hipster?

    This posting is NOT meant to be punitive, but just seeking to understand the demographics here. People here clearly like to dress "sharp", have serious knowledge, and spend money to attain this goal..

    But, dressing well means different things in different circles.

    Who are you?

    Sharp dressed Mortgage Broker "guidos" who wear "gangster/Godfather" pinstripes?
    Academic elite?
    Politician?
    Preppy WASP?
    Corporate elite?
    Doctors, lawyers, bankers.... ?
    Blue collar business owners? (housing, restaurant, etc)
    Pro athlete, actor, celeb?

    For example, Ed Hardy is considered "classy" in 1 circle/demographic,
    and tasteless tacky Prole in another.

    Brooks B. is tasteful in 1 circle/demographic,
    and is unhip / old people in another.

    All segments above have different sartorial tastes...
    This varies by age, career, education, location, etc.

    Very curious....

    I am preppy / corporate.


    Why - what does it reveal that is so important to you (after a mere fifteen posts) , the world? I would have thought it irrelevant in fact though doubtless you will have some deeply intuitive and equally irrelevant conclusion to draw.

    I make promises that other people get to keep. The hours can be patchy and sometimes the "other people" make a liar out of me. But the pay is good allowing me to indulge in a lifestyle that I can't afford.

    I'm surprised at how many students are on this site. Especially those that are still in high-school!
