The Googles Do Nothing: Most American men dress like total slobs.  One reason is the fact that they are so gawdamn fat now that their shirts won't stay tucked in and the other is because nobody has any respect for themselves or those around them....oh, and they are fat too.  Did I mention that?


American men bathe, though. And typically not in cologne. So we have that going for us at least.

alcoda: White_Scarf_Syndrome: It's either a shirt and tie or something like this.  Took a visit back to NJ a few weeks ago and I had forgotten how much the collared shirt was still in style.  Blech.

[img.fark.net image 593x640]

I guess I either dress like an adult or a 17 year old.  I'm OK with that.

You're super cute, single dad guy.


If only I had some "buttown-down" shirts as we used to say in NJ, I'd have ALL the farkettes!

Here in VERmont, I wear my best flannel shirt for a blind date.

She's going to tun out to be an L-7, K-9, anyway.

Blisterlips: I get what they are saying- I see hoards of bros walking around the LES on friday nights wearing the same uniform: button up shirt, untucked, sleeves rolled, almost always in blue stripes. I have a much bigger problem with their accessories in the summer: goddamned flipflips.

New York City is farking dirty.  don't wear flipflops to bars.

The thing is- everyone has a uniform. Me and all my lady friends wear tight jeans, black scoop neck tshirts and hoodies.

They might be bros, but everyone has their click. nothing wrong with that. it's just advertising.


I was just out that way a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn't decide who was douchier, the East Side hipsters of Austin, or the female equivalent of Uggs on the dudes in NYC.  It was culture shock.  People still had the same uniforms from 5 years ago.  Hell, I had a shirt like that 5 years ago.  I caught flack from a sort of friend for not "dressing up".  I said "is there a farkin dress code? No?  Then who farkin cares?"

Also hoodies, how YOU doin?
 
2013-12-04 08:52:31 AM
I'll gladly lose the "goin' out shirt" if women over 25 lose the black leggings with Uggs and a North Face jacket.

/Wait. No.

So no more striped dress shirts? Uh,,,okay, whatever.

Article makes no sense at all.

impaler: Is it just me, or is the entire article nonsensical and contradictory?


No.  It's just you.

see, you should have a closet full of clothes for different occasions - including a tuxedo - but you shouldn't have  going out shirt and your shouldn't wear another shirt for different occasion as a shirt you go out in b/c you shouldn't have a going out shirt, only shirts for every occasion.  So, don't take one of those shirts, that is starched more than likely, and use it as your going out shirt b/c, see, then it's your going out shirt, and you aren't allowed to have one of those.

oh, and don't wear shirts with more than one color unless it's one of your shirts for another occasion and, this can't be stressed enough - do NOT use that shirt for going out.  Especially if it's starched and untucked.

SquiggsIN: Maybe this says more about me than every one else....

I've never read GQ, I have no friends who have ever read GQ, I have no family who has ever read GQ, I've never met anyone that mentioned reading/subscribing to GQ...

Who the hell is buying this magazine in this country?


the guy in the picture in the article. He also reads Maxim, FHM etc. I had a roommate like that. I asked him why he would buy that stuff with the amount of free porn on the internet. This was back in the days of TheHun etc, probably before Skankfree and Youporn.

Anyway, I've been guilty of favoring a type of shirt when I go out, but I grew up in FL on a barrier island so I veer towards a more slacker surfer short sleeved button down over a white T with jeans or shorts depending on the weather. Flips ok in hot weather, too. Yeah NYC is dirty but so what, are most big cities in southeast Asia and that's all you see over there.

Jeans. T shirt. Boots.

It's just what i wear. I could give a rats ass what anyone thinks about it.

Virtuoso80: darkjezter: I'd rather wear a "going out shirt" for dates and nights out on the town than I would a suit.  God, I hate wearing a suit.  You'll never see me in one unless I'm at a wedding, a funeral, or a job interview.

There seems to be an inverse relationship between how good clothes look on you and how comfortable they are to wear. In a world without women or job interviews I'd just wear a T-shirt and sweatpants all the time.


I get complemented on my work wardrobe regularly, and I don't wear anything that's not comfortable enough to run in or sleep in. And none of my stuff is expensive.

The article is just saying that a shirt with buttons is not automatically classy. It has to fit you and be appropriate for what you are doing.

So nothing about how the people you're actually targeting are giant self-absorbed douchebags, GQ?

FriarReb98: So nothing about how the people you're actually targeting are giant self-absorbed douchebags, GQ?


GQ is like the Hooter's hostess of magazines. "OMG, I'm so glad you're sitting in my section, what a bunch of douchebags in here today! Cool BUTTFUMBLE shirt! I like a man with a sense of humor! So...get some wings for you sweetie?"

Yea, that's some farking bullshiat.  What exactly are you wearing to work that you can run in and sleep in?

Then you need a belt. A belt that matches your shoes.

See? It's never just one thing.

Because they dress better than you?

I'm an American male (27). I'm not fat, but yeah, I don't have an ounce of respect for any of you farking people.

I have 3 polos and 2 button-up shirts, and they get worn in rotation. Weekends, it's t-shirts and jeans.

GQ can eat all the dicks. "Looking good wherever you go" requires money most people can't get their hands on these days.

Don't rush us. We're still in the shirt before the shirt over here.

It's not a fedora it is a trillby. Don Draper wears a Fedora, Don Guido wears a trillby.

That is because your nice close don't fit right.

I had the chance to buy a suit that was made to measure at an extreme discount in a light gaberdine wool. It fit so well I didn't need a belt and felt was like wearing PJs. It made me realize why everyone wore suits in the old days.

Also getting your off the rack clothes fitted by a taylor has a similar effect.

Yaaarp.  I was very disappointed with what greeted me when I returned to the U.S. after several years away. Good lord, what an ugly bunch of slobs (the women, too)! I used to think this was normal?

I'm a pretty casual girl; I'm hoping that grunge comes back so I'll have an excuse to wear flannel again. That said, I suggest that we all take up a new hobby, lose a few pounds, and learn to dress like adults. This country is embarrassing to look at.

If my outfit embarrasses someone, I feel like I'm doing it right.  At work, it's t-shirt and nice jeans because it's a rule.  Outside that, well, just don't dare me to wear the speedo and neon paisley shirt.  You might not like what you see.

I usually wear my 'Fresh Prince' sweater to the local dive bar.  So far has been a fun conversation starter.

He is doing good, but it falls apart at the ankles. That dude just looks goofy with the weirdly rolled pants legs, no socks, and that choice of shoe.
