#2 I went to HS with this guy, Clint Mauro
Nice. The shoes are a bit effeminate but the rest is good. Clean and simple.
Really? Was he a big douche bag at all? Or was he nice and friendly?
I'm pretty glad my boyfriend doesn't wear ANY of these things. The watch is nice, but he would look hilarious in skinny jeans, a plaid shirt, and loafers.
Oh good, I thought I was the only one thinking this….lol
#1 is a nice suit.<img src="http://s01.flagcounter.com/count/7uR/bg=FFFFFF/txt=FFFFFF/border=FFFFFF/columns=1/maxflags=1/viewers=3/labels=0/" alt="." width="1" border="0" /><img src="http://s11.flagcounter.com/count/Ry4/bg=FFFFFF/txt=FFFFFF/border=FFFFFF/columns=1/maxflags=1/viewers=3/labels=0/" alt="." width="1" border="0" />
#8 A button up shirt under a sweater and nice fitting pants (not too baggy OR too tight) is the perfect outfit in my opinion!! A guy can use different patterned pieces or accessories to make it suit his own style!
From a guy's perspective though, a sweater over a button up is very, very warm. Uncomfortably so for me, and I would rather feel the soft sweater.
And at least tuck the shirt in
Yes my fiancee would excellent in these clothes. He's in the north pole. He's a scientist too. He's dealing with the whole ice cap situation. Yeah, he's probably going to fix it.
Skinny jeans for guys: JUST SAY NO.
I am girl who thinks guys with skinny jeans is very sexy.
#7 Yeah, every guy should have a good supply of gingham shirts. Can both be dressed up and down with ease!
imho…i beg to differ! As a designer (and I've sewn my whole life) I'm really familiar with fabrics (huge understatement.) Gingham is a pattern best known for tablecloths, little girl dresses, and girl doll dresses regardless of the color. Such an effeminate connotation and "feeling" to them.
But if THAT is what you're going for…
I think you need to look a suiting sites and men's fashion mags a little more often.
not really. I do peruse the men's fashion mags. I've seen this a LOT in men's suiting. Especially as of late. I just don't like it for the reasons I mentioned. You can have your own opinion. I still have a Raggedy Ann doll in this fabric made by my Grandmother. The HISTORY behind a fabric also matters, even though a new “spin” is put on it by the fashion industry. No need to be nasty.
History behind fabric or patterns really doesn't matter. Things change..evolve.
OH MY! Yes, history does matter! You can't create a period room or costume without knowing about what was around during that period in time. It's better to know than to not know, yes? How can you design clothing if you don't understand where/why a pattern is there…especially today with all the political correctness? You could totally offend and not know it.
Fashion is about expressing yourself. How do you know WHAT you are expressing if you don't know the history of the pattern? I'm just trying to inform the decisions. People will make judgments about what you're wearing based on their knowledge (their history) of the fabric. "You are other people's scenes."
Yes, things do change/evolve. Thank goodness! I do love gingham! I just saw some new fashions using it differently, in brighter colors and larger scale, in a show by Michael Kors. Very cute! All of the gingham was on women, too. IN MY OPINION!!!!! It's just too feminine for a man if you want to dress in a masculine way.
I disagree, I think you're reading on the history to fabric relations way too deeply.
i'll give you an analogy.
Black people still wear cotton even though their great great grandparents use to be
enslaved just to pick cotton. No one is going to call someone a racist just because they're wearing cotton.
If you think its effeminate because of its history, it is probably an opinion of a handful of people.
and to be fair to @Sask_KCCO you were the one who attacked him first with the
"But if THAT is what you're going for…" comment.
no need to be nasty:)
I took a poll of friends and family. They live everywhere in the US. Here you go..no editing from me and the message I sent asking had no opinions from me:
Male, professional, single, Boston: "No, thanks! My gay friends wear that!"
Male, retired, father of 2: “No Thanks!!!”
Female, professional, mother of 1: “Gingham fabric I believe is a small check print, if it has a pucker to the fabric I do not perfer it. As far as for mensware for me it would depend on the check size, color and the man wearing it.”
Male, professional, father of 1: “One guy at work wore a red gingham shirt to work sometimes. He was ribbed mercilessly for wearing a picnic table cloth to work. No place in business attire. Personally, I would never wear it.”
Female, professional, mother of 2: “I personally don’t care for it. My daughter doesn’t mind it. Dan, my son, thinks it is "gay". “
Female, professional, mother of 2: “Seriously?!? Actually I prefer my men not to dress like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.”
Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, tablecloth… those are from the HISTORY of the pattern. And I think that this illustrates that it may not be just the "opinion of a handful of people"
Just thought I'd follow up…
Who knew that gingham could be so polarizing?
#30 My husband is a big beefy Rugby Player and would look totally ridiculous in pretty much all of these getup's – especially this one. SIGH
The guys in this photo look totally ridiculous. Props to your husband for playing Rugby.
if your husband plays rugby he has those shorts
I want to pull off the Mary Poppins Douche look so bad! Said me never.
//I'm starting to think you ladies are trolling throwing in these ridiculous ones at the end….tricky vixens you
I'll take cowboy boots, tight jeans, and a button up! Thanks, though!
#3 & #5 – not so much what I wish my boyfriend would wear but who I wish my boyfriend was!
Can I take the clothes and the guy? <3
Can I take the clothes OFF the guy?
Hey you have to share. You can have him the first night and the second night I have him.
I'm sorry, but #17 shoes just look but ugly.
#8 – If a man rolls up his sleeves, whatever outfit he's wearing becomes exponentially more attractive. Mr. Dagger has my number on this one. I can't handle it.
I just want Ryan Gosling to be my boyfriend.
#12 gives me a sartorial boner
stuff your boyfriend wishes he could afford…
<img src="http://storeshopnow.com/mm/imada/ffn2.jpg"/> #1 okay why isn't his collar button unbuttoned?<img src="http://storeshopnow.com/mm/imada/annf.jpg"/>
Why would the collar button be unbuttoned? The collar point buttons should be buttoned as it's a button down collar.
It seems the current fashion is for things to be ill-fit: jackets that are too small & too tight, pants that are too short, shirts that can't get tucked in. Not buttoning the collar makes it look unkempt.
And that's exactly the problem with all such fashion.
They all look like d-bags! Nothing is sexier than messy hair, jeans and a plain black t-shirt. rawr!
Ladies I am a male and I promise you all you have to do is tell me I would look sexy in something " I dont know about others" but I am throwing that shit on right then… And if you bought it I would have had it on when you walked threw the door with it to see if you really thought it was sexy..

Yes to some.
#15 I support capital punishment for anyone who tries to wear that.
Three more responses to my gingham poll.
From a retired couple, 3 children, empty-nesters: "[We] don't think much of it!!!!!"
From a professional with 4 children: "Hate it."
