Isn't that exactly what metrosexual means?
No, metro above and beyond, like getting manicures or getting your eyebrows waxed

Taking some pride in your appearance and doing shit like wearing clothes that fit well is just that. America is probably the only place in the world where people take pride in dressing awful.

Yeah, sounds like Raza to me. Don't know why you think it's an insult though, other than I decided to rib him about it a bit.

Or maybe he's talking about the 4.0/5.5L TT V8 benzos.  Ie the 550s
That's what I thought he meant. If he really meant the CLA, those wouldn't be a bad idea, but for the prices they're currently listed at, I'll probably pass.

No beef with your ribbing. I thought it was a bigger burn on the people I was calling soft than on me.

I can't resist a few jabs at our forum metrosexual calling people soft :lol:

If I'm the forum metro and Dave is the forum dad, does that make you the forum soccer mom?  :devil:

Valuing one's appearance is not "metrosexual". People hate on Raza because they themselves can't dress  :hammerhead: I imagine the most tailoring they've had done their entire lives is having a Men's Warehouse suit hemmed.


You do realize how expensive it is to wear tailored clothes or dress like Raza, right?  Fuck, you can hardly buy a decent suit for less than a month's rent depending on where you live.  Must be nice.  :rolleyes:

I'm not that liberal, but I take no umbrage with the rest of the description.

Calm down. 1, I was being a little hyperbolic. You don't need to have everything tailored, just buy shit that mostly fits out of the box. Only tailored stuff I have are button down shirts and those cost a total of a whopping $50 (shirt + tailoring). As for suits H&M has great stuff. My wedding suit was from there, cost like $100, fit pretty well and I still have it. Looking at pictures I probably should have got it hemmed but w/e.

You don't need to spend a million bucks to have good clothes, you just have to take a little care and look.

Can't recall the last time I paid $50+ for any article of clothing outside of jackets/boots/shoes.  It's totally possible to look good and dress to yourself and body without needing to be metrosexual or buying tailored items.  I know you know this and were being a bit sarcastic/hyperbolic.

The most tailoring I've ever had done is none...unless you count being fitted for a rental tux three times in my life (prom, bro's wedding, buddy's wedding). :lol:

I'm guessing Walmart or Costco. No fitting rooms though.  12,000 RPM doesn't strike me as
a coupon cutter but maybe he is.  More likely, my guess, is that he just doesn't shop for shirts and pants and relies on his wife, parents, and in-laws to buy him those things for his birthday and Christmas.   :lol:

Also an adult male can get away with wearing the same 10 -
20 shirts and same 10 pants year after year if you don't need fancy clothes for work.  I haven't bought a suit for 15 years.  I've gotten 4 of them from close relatives in that time.

ASOS, H&M, Uniqlo

$50 is prob a more realistic cap but yea it doesn't cost anything to make plain clothes that fit well.

Oh yea, then we shop at the same places then lol. (Except Uniqlo; their fitment is so awkward to me - I have to go in person and there's no Uniqlo close to me)



I love ASOS. I just spent $100 there this week.

Uniqlo takes work for sure, all their shirt cuts are basura. Still though, $30 for a button down + $20 for my tailor to make it decent is nice. Their slim fit jeans/chinos fit me perfect.

It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it was the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily, the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. - George Washington
