In Switzerland it tends to correlate with available income. Often the parents' available income but still, it's a socio-economic indicator. I also like Dockers, blue shirts and having your sweater tied around your shoulders.
so you like gay men....

I happen to be wearing a pair of these today (minus the leather laces...damn things never stay tied).

And sadly it doesn't tally with the amount of available females who a) swing both ways and b) don't see this as an either or activity.

Nor this one. If you are short, having any kind of "break" in your trousers like the seams on these ones, PLUS having the trousers stuck in your boots will make you look like you are off to meet Frodo, your really tall mate. The guy in the picture is a model and should thus be at least 6', however, he looks about 5'6" in this garb...

The only "problem" with liking to dress in that sort of way is if it conflicts with what you're looking for (or keep telling yourself you're looking for) in a partner.

Being willing and able to "clean up real well" as occasion may warrant will go in your favor on that front though.

i guess when you're a really tall girl, you can easily kick the short guys when they're down

Re: Men, how do you stack up?

It's just a question of dressing to suit your shape. I see quite a few über-short Italian guys who wear fancy jeans with massive turn-ups. Makes their legs look like little stumps.

Yep, that's exactly what I mean.


Well, except you might be able to "bang" them, they just won't want any of their friends to know about it.

Darn it, I need to quit wearing these things...they are becoming trendy and my program is to be very untrendy. Besides, getting tired of all the kids' "mais, madame, pourquoi une cravatte?" hahaha....I am glad these are not trying to pull it off with Heidi hair, they would be complete copy cats

Loafers/boat shoes, I can't stand them. Wear docs, muddy whatever, uggs, crocs, or barefoot, but not loafers, no matter what money it means. People are still judging income by shoes? By products?
