    I've been told by MANY of my female friends (not surprisingly, straight guys just couldn't care more) that my fashion sense is horrible. I agree.

    So in a bid to re-orientate myself with the Yin and Yang of good dress sense, anyone care to share (preferably with pics) what they think is a presentable outfit? It could be for any occasion, I just need to absorb all that is just and good... And appealing.

    My sister told me I was a bad gay because she was talking about Coach and I said, "... like, a soccer coach or a stage coach?"

    HAHA. I've heard of Coach, but I haven't heard of a bad gay. Shit, maybe I'm a bad gay. Well I'm sure you know how to pronounce Lois Vuitton at least icon_smile.gif

    Shirt, pants, socks, shoes. Color of clothes shouldn't clash between pants and shirt. Sox can match either shirt or pants. Sweater can be added in cooler weather.
    Shirt stripes should be vertical for broad builds and horizontal for thinner.
    Don't wear white (except for shirts) before Memorial Day. No sneakers when dining out elsewhere than at a bar or fast-food plae.
    That's all the "fashion sense" you REALLY need, though most Gay-card holders with their corporate-billboard shirts and designer bikini briefs would beg to differ. icon_razz.gif

    I have a penchant for graphic tees, that doesn't seem to want to go away. What I love most about working in healthcare is you can just slap on some scrubs and run out the door. ITS AWESOME. icon_biggrin.gif

    For everything else, I thankfully I have a sister that loves to tell me when my shit doesn't go together.

    You can still check by yourself on the official sites of brands you may know. It can help a lot

    Hmm. I'm guessing modelling + designer then? I've seen your displays in some pics around here, but you MUST be some sort of model too! Gonna stalk your profile now to see your dress sense.

    My fashion sense would be described as..........WTF? Seriously, I have none. I just go with simple stuff. I have to buy a bunch of new clothes since I've lost a lot of weight, and I'm dreading it.

    Mine is pretty good. I went shopping yesterday and found some great stuff. The the only things you need to know are fit, quality and color. With that you are pretty good to go.

    I love clothes and don't deny forking out a lot on it. I'm also into high end labels, those that are lesser known to the general public. Examples include A.P.C, Acne and Norse Projects.

    I like dressing stylishly but not in a way that would suggest I am gay (not that I try to hide it either, for the record).

    I've never really understood how people simply can not give two shits about what they throw on in the mornings.

    Just know the basic "Do's'" and "Don'ts" of fashion and you'll be. You don't have to be all "Project Runway" about your appearance but you should have a healthy and general sense of pride about your appearance. Simplicity is never out of fashion but that doesn't mean you have to be lazy.

    best thing for guys who don't have natural fashion sense is get it from somewhere. That means mags, catalogs, etc. The neat thing about catalogs is that, especially large store catalogs like Saks Fifth Avenue, will mix pieces from different designers to make one outfit, which is what most people end up doing anyway. In single-designer catalogs you're limited to outfits only made up of stuff from their line.

    Pay attention to how different colors work with your complexion and hair color. For example, my cousin, who is gorgeous and brown-hair/brown-eyes darker skin and freaking six foot tall looks awesome in seersucker suit (a very VERY southern thing) whereas i, blonde hair bluegreen eyes, pale skin 5'8 do not.

    Different designers will cut their patterns differently too. pay attention to whether something is "modern fit" or "city fit" or "slim fit" or any number of other terms. This will refer to how the shirt, you guessed it, FITS. For a guy like you with the sexy bod going on, you're going to want to try ALL of these on and see which one fits your body well. Don't be afraid to ask the salesgirl/guy. If you have broad shoulders make sure its not too tight. there shouldn't be tension on your delts trying to pull them together. Also "fitted" does not mean "tight" Usually you want fitted because while tight might look hot its a pain in the ass to move around in (expecially driving a stick shift, trust me)

    A nice pair of straight, dark jeans (black or REALLY dark blue) from a good-fitting designer looks good with a button-down collared shirt and either a modern blazer (cheaply had from any number of dept. stores) or a leather hipster jacket.

    This is just one look, more of a clean-cut casual look that still says "I'm fun" but also says "i'm mature and at least a little successful"

    Oh, i'd love to actually give you an education in person. I love doing that. I have a few "students" here actually that i give lessons to.

    Understated Style
    Simple yet refined.
    Natural fibres best.
    Functional basics,
    mix'd and match'd;
    tone on tone, b&w.
    Trim, Crisp, Sharp.
    No logos, no 'bling',
    no fads, zero irony.
    Applicable whether
    wearing plain t-shirt
    & domestic jeans or
    European suit & silk
    shirt or robe & towel;
    the very same ethos:
    Modern and Classic.

    "The best fashion statement
    . . . is no fashion statement."

    I think I dress fairly well.. I got the clean look with a bit of abstract going... each to their own though. I have tons of outfits =P

    You just need to know how to coordinate colors/ patterns and etc....

    look up stuff online...

    Very basic dresser here, getting more basic as I get older. Know enough not to clash or stand out, but that's about it.

    I agree with the above about checking websites. Also flip through fashion magazines to get an idea of brands you like. Your style has to reflect your personality or you will just be a fashion victim, so it's pretty much impossible for anyone to help you with your wardrobe without knowing you. Just be more aware of what's out there. I hate GQ but it could be a very BASIC start to mainstream, practically unchanging styles, and you can learn about getting the right fit and colour coordination, etc.
