    Would you say that you are fashion conscious? Are you a trend setter, follower, or completely hopeless?

    I would have to say, fashion wise, I am completely hopeless lol. I buy my clothes for purpose and never really consider the style or brand or if I can make a full look outa something. It amuses me because my best bud is far more fashionable then me and he is the straight one.

    Another stereotype broken.

    I don't follow trends, I just wear clothes that are always "in"

    Plain shorts, solid color Tee's or V-necks, sweaters, zip ups, jeans, etc.

    I wouldn't say I'm a slave to fashion, but i enjoy putting a look together. I would say I'm classic, not too daring.

    I'm enjoying this Mad Men, 60's revival going on. It suits me.

    I'm into it. I purchase the latest, search store around the world to wear their trends here in the US, and design my own to start my own style.

    I can't stand the pants I am wearing presently and the only other pair I own is falling apart. Time for a visit to GiantBargainMart.

    Does that tell you enough?

    Would like to have nice clothes, but am beyond the thrift shop budget and sinking.

    I would say that I have an awareness of fashion...I like following the collections and knowing what is on trend...

    However, as far as the way I dress goes, I think the more accurate description would be "style conscious" rather than "fashion conscious".

    I tend to stick to simple, well-tailored items that are "classic" rather than "trendy"

    I'm my repellent hometown, I was pretty trendy, but mostly cause I had a sense of my own style and color coordination. Nothing cutting edge, not of my region. I don't aspire to be in high fashion, cause that's a horse race I'll never win a bet on. I'm still me. Every time I move I become more invested different aspects of myself. I'm pretty punky/business casual as usual now; but am working in a modern/artsy/jock look just cause of the area I'm in. My aim is to subtle confuzzle this shitt out of people who see me on a regular basis in work clothes. Am I gay? Am I a model? Am I insane? Am I misunderstood? lol... I heard it becomes a sexy skin zoo down here in the summer... can't wait for that clothes to go on sale. icon_wink.gif

    i know what cuts works on my body. for daily wear its usually well-cut jeans and khakis with fitted polos. for business and more formal wear, i have some nicely tailored suits in interesting materials. i rarely wear patterns (e.g. plaids, checks, prints, stripes, etc)

    so i guess i am aware of my style and i'm interested in the fashion world's creativity, but i don't consciously shop on trend, actively seek out cutting edge fashion from international retailers, or sport conspicuous logos. i like high quality, well-cut, natural fibers/materials.

    Goodness, no.
    501 jeans and tees
    Long sleeve dress shirts, if I want to look a little dressed up

    Love fashion to bits and I'm always on fashionspot.com/style.com to see what's going on in the fashion world but in terms of actually wearing the latest trends I'd have to say no.

    I have no desire to be a fashion victim and to be frank I'm a bit old to keep jumping on the latest bandwagon.

    I like to invest my money in items that never go out of style (i.e your classics such as white shirts, dark wash jeans, v neck black sweater etc) and are good quality so as a result I have quite a minimalist wardrobe but all the pieces work together well.

    You can be more daring with accessories so sometimes I'll buy a trendy item and wear that to make my look more 'current but generally I'm pretty conservative. '

    I really like style, fashion usually is trendy and fades. Style is timeless with a slight new twist.

    I really like Tom Fords style, classic and handsome. Jeans, jacket, white -T or white dress shirt, black mid calf boots or shoes. always cut to your body, slim fitted not tight. Tight say's 90's or i'm trying to hard to be sexy.

    J.Crew is my every day look but thoughtfully put together without looking contrived.

    So yes, I am conscious.

    I just wanna say I am not a fan of gay men who wear t shirts so tight they look fucking sprayed on. What is up with that trend ?!

    They need to lose some weight or buy the right fucking size.

    Mickey Rourke illustrates this problem perfectly.

    I still wear clothes I bought before some of the posters on this thread were born. I'm just happy I still fit in them.

    TheGuyNextDoor saidI believe in dressing for what ever looks best on your body. I don't worry too much about labels, but I will admit that some folks make clothes better that others.
    Just bought a new suit today that fits me like a glove in all the right ways.
    I'd rather be classic than trendy.


    ^^ This. x10000

    I'm a short guy, so most of the stuff in the men's section doesn't fit me, and I'm a bit too muscular for the stuff in the boys' section. Really, I'm just satisfied with getting my hands on a good pair of jeans and a T-shirt that fit decently and draw all the right lines on my silhouette.

    I am fashion conscious in that I like to look put together when I leave the house. I like my clothes to fit me well and be clean and not unduely wrinkled. I like colors beyond black, grey, and brown. I like prefer timeless classic to over-the-top looks. However, that's not to say I don't have some fashion forward looks in the closet.

    The other day I had on this one particular shirt while walking the dog I stopped to chat with a hotel doorman (he's a neighbor) when a woman coming out of the hotel stopped and talked with us. Out of the blue she asked, "Are you..." and I answered Gay? because I saw her staring at my shirt and just knew what she was asking. She said, "Yes, that it." I said, "Yes I am did the shirt give it away? Hey, just because I'm gay doesn't mean I have to dress like a lesbian!"

    I don't follow any particular designers. I buy what I like and mix and match designer pieces with department store brands and even thrift store finds.

    I think it's important to look nice, or as nice as possible in whatever situation you are in.

    Well-cut and fitted shirts and pants are always "in" as are "statement" accessories like shoes, scarves, suspenders, and man-purses. And I LOVE bright colors, e.g. whites, reds, oranges, yellows, and PINKS.

    Personally, when going out, I think it helps to differentiate yourself from the crowd if possible.

    I have my own look which I cobble together from great pieces I find at Crossroads Trading Company. I can do high suit-drag. I'm also not afraid to be bold and forward with colors, prints, and unusual couture pieces.

    i'd say i walk to the beat of my own drums. I have style, that's for sure, but i hardly pour over catalogues drooling over the latest trends, nor do i toss out clothes just because they're no longer "in style". I mix and match the classic preppy look with the edgier modern look for a look that is all my own. icon_biggrin.gif
