    Lol. I am actually really entertained by this thread. I really enjoyed Cannon's rant.


    I probably have said some things that are prodding, but quite honestly some of this stuff gets beaten into the ground. Either do a google search or think independently if you have a question like "does x go with y?". Other things, like this, are just so outrageously trivial and silly that I can't help but make a joke. I mean we are literally sitting here arguing on the internet about someone's arguments about menswear in real life.

    If that's how it was intended, I apologize. I'd just read something equally questionable by him in the thread I read immediately prior to this one.

    I read Jose's comment as tongue-in-cheek rather than malevolent.

    Strange how I always see the same two names next to prickish responses. Looking at you, frost and jose. The reason I like Dappered so much is that we *aren't* douchebags like the guys over at styleforum, and I'd sure like to keep it that way. Just my two cents though.

    Wow. This thread is amazing. I would have really done myself a disservice if I didn't read Cannon's rant. *furiously munches on popcorn*

    I'm personally flattered that all of you have decided to dress as I do.

    @AedanM: +1000. 16 year old girls don't get that worked up over clothes.


    Worry about yourself. Not what others say / do.

    Let them swaggajackers jack they swag. Ain't hurtin' nobody.


    But seriously, I never knew style could be such a heated subject between men. I only care about my own clothes and if anyone criticizes what I wear, I don't really give a crap (unless they are my employer or potential date).

    Well, if he is in the wrong when he comments on you guys, say so. If he says, "You wear too plain of ties all the time," then feel free to say, "No, I wear ties that James Bond would wear you tacky son-of-a-gun."


    You know, constructive responses. Best of luck.

    yeah i guess im not explaining it well, but its become the norm to have him critiquing everyone's clothes and talking about how uninspired we all are and how we need to "step it up" when he's just blatantly ripping people off is what gets to me


    i walways just sorta went in with the "yeah, i dunno i dress like this for work, and just sorta kept it going" mentality


    i like that hes dressing better in that sense....i guess the attitude he's bringing is more the problem, but if im being a brat about this so be it, thanks for your honesty all

    Are you upset that he dresses well now or that he critiques and advises now? If his advice is as stupid as you say, I'd respond with, "THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!" and I'm not one to yell, so it would be humorous frustration. Or you could explain that he just said common sense and mistakingly assumed someone might not be abiding by his minor advice. Just tell him what about his advice is stupid if you honestly feel it is stupid. As far as dressing well, I get that it takes certain attention off you, but you have to know that many of your friends are going to be maturing in style at some point.


    WARNING: Unnecessary rant below. Read only for ramblings of someone who hates their roommate's closet's guts.


    For example, my tool-bag douche roommate is suddenly seeing all his pledge/frat buddies dressing better and not buying American Eagle exclusively in college. This epiphany of his annoys me for two reasons. Firstly, I have heard him explain his need to buy better clothes to his mother on Skype, and he talks like a dude-Yo! type as he says that his style has matured and Lacoste is going to be his grown up American Eagle. Second, my closet is full of the stuff he is telling his mom he needs to get now (though I opt out of logos, so Lacoste is at a minimum), but he didn't realize until days ago that his American Eagle filled closet next to mine looks tacky, obnoxious, and most definitely middle/high school. He also says he needs Sperry boat shoes (which I don't wear because I don't like them) because everyone has them, so naturally, he has to wear them. Not because he knows how to wear them or wants them.


    As you can tell, he sucks. But I keep it in, so he keeps assuming I am his pleasant, clean, quiet roommate, while he leaves nasty stains on the counters, his sheets, and his dirty clothes crawl on the floor towards my space. Or so I hope he sees the differences between us in this way.


    I never knew I could hate the word "Yo!" so much until I started living with him and learned that he answers his phone every time with the word, as well as to get my attention to ask questions. He is in the room as I type this, so I am having trouble explaining what is so funny, but it is really just my evil judgments pouring into Dappered Threads.


    P.S. - He owns the ugliest custom Converse shoes that have yellow laces and interior, teal main colors, and red accents. Disgusting clown shoes.

    JToom, you can't seriously be surprised that he's ribbing you when you're making sarcastic comments about his outfit. That sounds more immature than high school. Maybe you're explaining this wrong, but I would think you would be encouraging others to dress better. Maybe you are, but it didn't come across that way.

    JToom, I saw that same "shoes"comment on some men's website, but I forget which one. Sounds like he's just regurgitating random stuff without regard to context or fact-checking. I wouldn't take it seriously.
