does it seem like he s too into himself? i m curious b/c a friend said he noticed me b/c i stand out like a sore thumb. i tend to care more and dress "better" (i think) than others. i m usually in sweaters over button downs with khakis during the winter. it doesn't take that much time but now im wondering do girls frown upon this? since most guys my age dont do this?
also what do u guys think of nantucket red shorts/pants or wearing nike running shoes with khakis and button downs / polos
im actually not interested in guys who don't dress nice
you should take pride in your appearance and try to look your best. especially since I try to do that, I expect the same thing in the guy. I do not want some bummy guy who looks like he could give a fuck how he looks, but expects me to be a cover girl lol
everyone has their own swag. the preppy swag like Nantucket red shorts and button downs can work and look good. I would probably not pair nikes and khakis, that might be a little odd, I haven't seen that. nikes are better with more casual wear like denim, sweats or athletic wear
when ur friend said u stand out like a sore thumb, don't get self conscious by that. you probably stand out in a good way
I don't like it to be honest. I've never been one to go all out with my attire. Like dropping $100 dollars for a shirt or buying clothing that makes me look like I walked out of the Hamptons. I think it looks preppy and that's not me. I'm much more conservative with my clothing. Give me a pair of dark waist-hugging jeans, a pair of black cross-trainers, and a white t-shirt and I'm set. That's not to say that I don't care about my looks. But I don't believe I need to look like an A&F or Banana Republic model to look good.
From what I've read, peacocking is more like wearing the wildest, brightest shirt you can find, or an obnoxious hat that really makes you stand out. Dressing nicer than everybody else would not sound like peacocking to me, I think it is fine to dress that way, and yes you would probably be one of the only ones and I think it's a good idea.
