This made for a not very interesting and pointless read.
But I find it hilarious that she wears Harvey Milk and Wolves in the Throneroom t-shirts with cardigans.
she had issues with her body, tho. so fair play.
if I ever get a woman again, I'd defo like her to be a bit oddball and quirky, with cat dresses, many, many bangles and some cool shoes and shit.
I'd like her to wear dresses with cats on. or giraffes, whatever really.
but I am quite envious that girls have lots of accessories. I mean, what can a guy wear? a watch....that's probably it.
does it matter?
it's what they look like without clothes that really matters
or to most people. But apparently some people would be bothered about their boyfriend or girlfriend hating their clothes.
says a fair bit about you as a person doesn't it? how you dress?
The way you dress is the only thing that, outside of work, every adult has total control over (looks-wise). intentionally or not the way you dress says a fuck load about you, so if your partner doesn't like it at all...
STEP OFF, BITCH
That's all I am to you people now, a walking, talking set of an abs. What about my lats, eh? Or my triceps? I'm not a single piece of meat, ffs.
his trapezius destined to forever be overlooked.
and this girl turned up in a wifebeater! couldn't believe it. admittedly, we were only going on a day trip....but come onnnnnn.
What kind of shoes/trainers do you have out of interest?
quite happy to answer if it is...
Please show me an image of the trainers you wear. Scenario: you're going to the cinema on a 3rd date.
with expensive jeans, a £2 black tshirt and maybe a nice cardi.
You mean she was wearing a vest top? Girls wear those all the time :S It's like one of the most normal pieces of clothing.
bottom line, she was a bit scruffy for date number 2. imho. don't worry, she completely ruined me emotionally so she's the real winner here
She's very into 'fashion' etc. and you can tell, she looks good. Sometimes she wears some really quirky weird shit though and I'm just there standing next to her in some jeans and a t-shirt looking incredibly out of place.
Wellll maybe not fashion but she had style, you know? And I'm just standing next to her in some jeans and a t-shirt looking incredibly out of place... but i think i started to get more of an idea of what goes well together from her, more of an eye for clothes that don't make me look like, well the 16 yr old me. Although that's not to say i think about it when i'm getting dressed, and whenever someone mentions that i look alright it's more by accident than design.
I totally do, it's just different, you know. Not comparing, just an anecdote about the learning curve or whatever. SHUT UP VINE
I don't give one single fuck though. The importance that society attaches to the specific type of cloth we use to not be naked is one of the most stupid things about the 21st century. I dream of a day when fashion is an ancient concept that the human race laughs about.
and not my guilty secret
She isn't all knowingly wacky and quirky, she knows what does and doesn't flatter her, she doesn't blindly follow the latest trends. But at the same time she has the odd quirky touch. She probably doesn't love what I wear, generic band / plain t-shirt (S or M), jeans, trainers. Jumper if cold.
But my top and bottom halves are in mutual agreement that they're both constantly on good form
I like what she wears, but after we'd gone out a couple of months it started to emerge that she hated some of my stuff (her main target was my jeans - I had pairs from Tesco, because I don't give a shit and don't see the point in spending £50 on something that is functionally indistinguishable from something that is £10). I took her argument that the Tesco jeans were kind of crap, and since I'm not really fussed about what I wear, I was happy to take suggestions, and go shopping with her, but I was clear that I wasn't comfortable being told what to wear, since it's the thin end of the wedge to say you can't wear that top, and leads to saying you can't hang out with that person and so on.
into that person "wearing the trousers" in the relationship.
They always buy expensive jeans and thus look nice (package and bum). I can see why she would dislike cheap jeans and agree that it should be a suggestion rather than a NO YOU CANT WEAR THAT. Although i do do the no you can't wear that as CG has some god awful band t-shirts and I don't want my mum to go 'Why do you have CON-DOM written on your shirt?'
back to the pile
(not the person, just the wardrobe) if it meant I could stop having to wade through piles of clothes on the floor, cluttering up drawers, and having to stand waiting outside fucking H&M et al for her on the weekend.
That's extreme. I just follow her about staring blankly into the distance and say 'Yeah that's nice' whenever she asks.
I get the follow round but with the phone in hand so he's bumping into people and not paying attention and I just get rage.
I usually find I get in other shoppers' way, I have a knack for standing in front of very trendy items. The problem is, if you agree with everything they get annoyed and think you aren't telling the truth, or they pick up and try on loads of stuff which takes ages, then buy loads of stuff, then you have to go back the next week to take back half that stuff. And so the cycle continues as they try new stuff on.
No, not paricularly.
regardless of price if the clothes fit you well you'll look decent
ill fitting clothes make you look like a right wally
Except when he wears a shirt to the supermarket or something and I wear a scruffy dress and lezzer boots.
I really worry that he doesn't like what I wear. He says he does, but I'm doubtful. I'm not very elegant and most of my clothes are a bit frumpy.
She is forever ragging on stuff I like but as I get older I've come to terms with the fact that I have no taste
WE DONT MIND YOU WEAR HONESTLY! oooh this shirt would look good on you...
'you look just like James Murphy now'
She'd prefer my hair (and clothes for that matter) to be a lot more extroverted than it is (or I want it to be)
I strive for as innocuous a haircut as I can get, I think she'd prefer it if I had a more out there style.
people you like are generally great whatever they're wearing
this fucking thread
You get these birds who are hot, then all of a sudden they pop up in a pair of Sketchers, and whilst i'm simply not attractive enough to consider that a deal breaker, i wouldn't take a bird out, especially to somewhere people i know were going to be, if she wasn't making an effort footwear-wise.
so I can understand that.
but it would be a bit odd to start going out with someone if their dress sense got on your wick that much.
and then quickly refocus on something more important.
bloody love those shorts.
big number on the front right leg.
It hasn't been commented on yet, living the dream.
She likes some of what I wear.
Like most men, I now ask her what I should wear/buy since she has crushed my confidence in choosing for myself.
that she wasn't around that weekend so I wore WHATEVER I WANTED TO.
a) wanting her to like what I'm wearing.
b) getting lazier and lazier about making such decisions for myself.
and its even happened that I've told a girlfriend that a place is closed for refurbishment or something incase someone see mes with them wearing a shitty dress or something. And anyone whos met me will know its incredibly rich that I get uppity about someones attire
cause thats insane.
Although if they wear shit clothes I just dont be friends with them anymore til they sort themselves out
Even the smart clothes she wears for work make her look great.
I just wear t-shirt and jeans most of the time. Thankfully the rest of me is hunky enough to overcome this conservatism.
black vest top a "wifebeater". Oh god
it was inappropriate, let's put it that way.
dresses fine. I once went out with a mod guy with incredible fashion sense. Didn't work out because he was incredibly immature but I miss his wardrobe. Wish the current bf worked more tailored suits into the mix but that's not his thing and I'm not going to push my tastes on him.
One of my exes was an aging Britpop guy. He used to wear Doc Martens, red corduroys, and Fred Perrys. He looked like he could have been the fat one in Menswear.
THAT would be a problem. Hard to think of much else that would be a proper dealbreaker from the male perspective though
im quite into nice clothes. (not really mad into trends or labels, but have my own idea of style)
Mrbass could dress a little better. He immediately stopped wearing tracksuit bottoms when we started going out. (i hadnt even said) but the usual would be jeans or combats with a hand-me-down oversized t-shirts and hoody. Scuffed badly beaten out trainers. Scruffy hair and beard. <3 him tho
SHE WEARS WHAT I TELL HER TO WEAR.
My trouser end is often a let down
