    To me...

    Dressed up = Collared shirt, Dockers and flip flops.
    Business casual = T-shirt, cargo shorts, and flip flops.
    Smart casual = Underarmour/compression shirt, cargo shorts, flip flops.
    Dressed down = cargo shorts, flip flops.
    Gym clothing = Underwear (only because flopping balls hurt).
    Ultimate fashion = Nude.

    There are no other ways to dress. icon_biggrin.gif

    I just solve that problem by taking part in activities that require very little clothing. It's easy to justify being mostly naked if you are always rock climbing, running or swimming. I forgot what clothes felt like (aside from my job attire) until this winter when I was forced to wear clothing in layers on a rock climbing trip where it was 24 degrees F outside. icon_biggrin.gif

    When I was living in San Francisco, there was a particular species of gay that goes to the very opposite end of fashion; these gays would not wash or cut their hair, didn't shave, & (not to be harsh) wore often unwashed clothes that honestly looked like they found on the street after a retro- 80's party... I called them Dirt Fags.
    Really, wear whatever you want to wear, but there is a problem if people drop change in your coffee cup when you're walking down the street...

    It kind of depends on the time and place. If you're going out to have pizza with friends and to see a movie, the "plaid wearing laid back sloppy look" is appropriate. If you're invited to a nice dinner party for Thanksgiving or Christmas, or attending a wedding or reception dinner and you show up in that get up you'll just look silly, lazy, and out of place. Not caring about fashion is one thing, being lazy and not making an effort for a special occasion is quite another.

    They will make you turn in your gay card for wearing plaid.

    What do you expect them to do, other than accepting meager/menial jobs?

    I mean really now, not everybody can be recipients of the E.B.T. Food stamp or Section 8 program!!! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

    Some of us have to work to put into the public doll system, so that those very people (arguably, warranted or not) can continue to be on those Government programs.. . . icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

    Yeahh....Or! Gay Martial Law will most likely whisk you away for wearing that plaid at a Nascar event! Either way: You're screwed without a kiss, I'm afraid!

    There is a lot to be said for Thrift Store Classic. Just keep it all soap-and-warm-water clean. Comfortable, cheap and absolutely not snobbish.

    i like casual, it just looks more effortless, but then there's a fine line (i think) between lookin like you're too deck to give a fuck (which is a good thing) and just lookin like a hot mess who lives in his car with busted mirrors...

    careless attitude can be chic but if you look like you smell, then maybe not

    This. Except add boots and weather gear or lab coat as needed. Dark brown trail-running shoes for bad weather or formal occasions.

    If I'm going to give a formal lecture or be interviewed on TV, I pull on a collared shirt over whatever else I'm wearing. Seems to work OK.

    I bought an expensive wool "sports jacket" to wear when I made a presentation at Davos. But it's really a pretty useless and non-functional garment. Haven't touched it since.

    Yes... and force you to wear a mullet and move in with a chick who plays softball and can fix her own car.

    There was a time when flannel was shorthand for "masculine-acting" in the gay community. Maybe that's why it was coopted by the lesbians.

    Plaid print is fine for a preppy or punk look.

    Camouflage cargo shorts, A&F t-shirt, and flip-flops are the standard gay uniform around LA. icon_lol.gif

    When in doubt, fix your hair and wear all black. Or go nude.
    It is not that complicated people.
