    Out of work is mostly just T shirts and jeans or shorts. Everything else in my wardrobe is only there because there are some places you just can't get away with a t shirt and shorts. I only dress for myself and have a thing for t-shirts with unusual graphics.

    A lot of both actually, i'm in a suit for work and usually in something more dressy than casual... I think its strange seeing people attempting to enter a 5star restaurant wearing jeans....

    I shop at swap meets, surf/skate stores, and sporting goods stores. Of course, I do have nice clothes for job interviews and formal events. But for daily clothes, if it's not permanent press, I ain't buying/wearing it. icon_lol.gif

    I don't like dressing up so I usually dress down. I've worn a suit at work twice, when public speaking was involved. I hated it, and I won't do it again. In my industry you can get away with flip flops and boardies at the office, and I usually don't work from the office anyway.

    Usually, I wear sweatpants about 3 out of 7 days, hoodies 7 out of 7 days. Around here in Vancouver it's the territory of the fashists so I'm not even gonna try to keep up with anything, and they look ridiculous anyway.

    My favorite store to shop is Ross icon_razz.gif

    The only time I dress nice, which means wearing a dress shirt and pants is for work. Overall when at home Im usually in a long sleeve, sweater, button up, to hide my tattoo from my parents. When Im out, Im wearing a t shirt, jeans or short, and a jacket.

    I'd probably prefer to see someone in tracksuit pants, thongs and a t-shirt than head to toe in D&G.


    Nothing wrong with head to toe Dolce & Gabbana

    Fashion doesn't exist in Canada except Montreal (maybe TO, but not from what I've seen)

    Anything west of there and lulu IS considered fashionable.

    The most expensive clothing I own is my Underarmour and Nike compression stuff.
    <-- Totally not fashion oriented. Even straight guys dress better. icon_lol.gif

    i've never been trendy, i always try to avoid anything i know 10 yrs from now i'm gonna say "wtf was i thinking??" if i had to describe my style when i actually put effort into my outfit, not just tee/jeans, i'd say business casual, sweaters, pea coats, non denim pants, nothing too fancy or expensive, but not just a wife beater and track shorts

    In my youth, I would always dress to the nines whether it may be casual or formal. Now it all seems so pretentious. Shorts or jeans and a t is the real me.

    I only end up wearing my 'fancy' clothes when all my other clothes are dirty icon_sad.gif
    Even then I end up turning a sweatshirt inside out or something because I feel like a douche wearing it. icon_redface.gif
    I need to get on top of doing laundry or buy more clothes or better yet convince my mother that despite the fact I like boys that I still would rather have new baseball tee's and sweatpants than fancy smelling colognes and expensive jeans. However, on the plus side she leaves the tags on so I can return certain clothes for cash icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    For work I wear jeans and a polo (my office is a bit more lenient on that) and if I spike my mohawk it isn't colored. This is one of the rare times I dress for others.

    Outside of work: depends on what I feel like wearing. Usually jeans and a tshirt if I'm going out and basketball shorts or sweatpants with a tshirt if I'm not going out. Sometimes cologne, sometimes not. It all depends on what I think looks best on me at any given time.

    The only Fashion Hound I dress for is myself, when I choose. And then I am absolutely meticulous. But here in Florida, most of the time I dress like a bum, for comfort in the hot weather. And since I've been retired for 16 years, I never need to wear any business dress. Except when I volunteer at Broward House, and then I merely wear one of their embroidered polos, and make sure I have some sort of long pants on.

    I had another unpleasant experience over this a few weeks ago in Fort Lauderdale. I went into Neiman Marcus dressed as I usually do, and got snotty attitude from some pompous sales person. They got no business from me that day; instead Macy's did just down the mall from them. Plus I stumbled upon some nice sales, which I considered my reward for snubbing the arrogant Neiman's.
