What's your "style"?

I saw this idea in another forum and I thought it'd be cool to get an idea of what everyone perspectives are in style and fashion..

As in what kind of clothes do you wear?

On a regular daily basis not in-office, I tend to wear tightish t-shirts with jeans or khakis/black slacks. Favourite brands: Buffalo, FCUK, CK.

In the office: I usually wear dark slacks with a collar shirt (sometimes a tie) and in the winter I usually wear a sweater over top of that.

Clubbing: A little similar to my daily routine but a little bit sharper.
During the day I'm a no-name business casual with a splash of funk (ie collared shirts but untucked with a hawian print) and no-name casual at night.
It's not that I have anything against brand names. I'm just cheap.
I just wanted to point out... I hate shirts with big logos on them. I can handle a little 3cm logo on the left side of the chest, but that's it.
For the office I'm a jeans and blouse kinda girl.

At home I'm jeans/lounge/shorts/skirt kinda girl.

My mom is still trying to figure out how in heck the calculator works while I wear jeans. She thinks that all women should wear skirts or slacks in the office. I keep telling her I did that and kept ruining my clothes, especially my favorite pink leather skirt. So now I just wear jeans. And I got an awsome wardrobe finally. No more 1 set of clothes for her and another set of clothes for there. Too much money.

I just have "normal" clothes (sounds boring right ), what the average 18-year old guy wears. Jeans, (especially longsleeve) shirts, very casual.
Just out of curiosity Rick, what do teenagers wear over there? Ours tend to wear low rise jeans and tops that leave bra staps and bellies showing.
I'm lucky I guess since I can wear same clothes for work that wear on nights and week ends. I like to wear casual clothes, I like Vans/Airwalk kind of shoes, I wear surf/diving shirts, clean cargo pants, bermuda. I have some clean clothes that I wear when needed, that is when the girlfriend can't stand my sloppy look anymore

I never wear jeans, but like cargo pants, cords, Tilly shorts in summer with Berkenstock sandals and Tilly hat. I love Neru-style shirts. I like turtleneck sweaters in winter, Neru-style shirts in the summer. I like my canvas Converse All Star runners best for footwear, and have just ordered the ultimate in Converse All Stars: the John Lennon Peace edition! Simply gorgeous.

When dressing up I like black wool slacks, silk blouses, that sort of stuff, and I like Jones New York clothes 'cause they look good, wear well, fit nicely and the brand is relatively inexpensive. My favourite article of clothing would be my cashmere/wool Anne Klein coat, it is all comfy and warm as all get out.

Well the way you describe it, there is not so much of a difference. I think we are pretty extreme too. When it's hot, a lot of girls wear hotpants or really short skirts (which is actually not very unpleasant ), although that can depend, because a lot of people have their own style; and the guys (like me): well when it's hot you won't find a lot of shorts, but it's not that most guys wear baggy clothes, like in the US (I don't know how it is Canada). Guys tend to be more ... femine (sounds weird), a lot of guys spend a lot of time doing their hair, shopping etc. (not me though, I'm one of those nearly extict guys who hate shopping ). American rednecks would probably say 'what a bunch of fags over there', but guys too are spending more and more time on their looks. They have even launched make-up for men over here now I think about it. These guys are called "metrosexuals" by the way.

I wear jeans and, depending on the weather/occassion, either a long-sleeved shirt (denim or a solid colour) or a t-shirt (usually out of a beer box). I got my last haircut the week before Zenfisher got married and last shaved a little over a year ago.

I have little or no interest in fashion.
Rick, looks like it's only distance that is our only difference. Too funny.

We have the metrosexuals too, and apparently it's quite the trend. I'm not too sure about men and their shopping habits, I know my hubby hates it, nor am I sure about men wearing make up. I don't get out too much so many some of the guys around here can shed some light on that.

Now about that makeup, just what are the men wearing?

RB, you got the Silver Bullet t-shirts too?
jeans...levi..sometimes mavis

sweat pants when not wearing jeans...not cheap ones either and no matching top...

hemp....lots of hemp top...good stuff...feels good to...nice t-shirts

some dress pants...hopefully will not have to wear them...

belts...good ones...nice celtic buckles..

flips flops....nice aldo hiking boots...everyone has runners....buy good ones

2 hoe dresses....for dancing disco with my gay friend....my own queer as folk dance hall....a sea of beautiful men...nota one looking a my ***

Pachouli smells good...earthy....and no I have not been or ever been a hippie chick...I could have been a contender tho....
....one more thing...no diamonds...bad stuff...very bad.....morning bevvy

morning pea,

You know, diamonds could really jazz up those jeans and sweaties. Just gives it a whole new look.
Thanks bevvy But I am in the sweats so they are already jazzed up enough :P
Ahh my little diamond in the rough.
ahah...my big diamond in the ruff...
When it comes to diamonds, bigger is always better, however one size does fit all.

bevvyd about the make-up and what men wear: I have NO IDEA . I only now that some people say it will be a trend, and thinking about it, a week ago when I was traveling back with the train to my homecity, I say a guy who wore a dress (and he was no transvestite). Another fashiontrend it seems.
Hmmm, men wearing makeup and dresses, I just hope they have good looking legs and hairless please. I think the cosmetic companies are going to love this one. The cosmetic section will never be the same again. But then again if they can come out with a foundation that hides the 5 o'clock shadow......

Oh sorry instead of "dress" I should have said "skirt". My bad.

Look HERE (external - login to view), and enjoy.
I dress up all the time, except around peapod, she looks at my labels and lectures......bev..diamonds are a girls best friend
Oh dear, I gotta get out more.

Sparky, diamonds are the only friend a girl could ever need.

Why's that bevvyd?

Rick, that's a little much. But I was walking through Eatons the other week at the Eaton Centre and noticed make-up advertised for men by (I think) someone like Jean-Paul Gaultier. Surprising! I thought the time to come up with that idea would be the 80s when we had all of these male singers dressing up in drag.
Rick, diamonds are a girls best friend just cause they are expensive, glittery and they are something we love to show off, and they just go with everything rglardless of what Peapod says. One never has enough you know.

I know I know I'm a material girl. So what, I look better for it. Ha!

Suddenly reminds me of Shania Twain, Ka-Ching.

We live in a greedy little world -
that teaches every little boy and girl
To earn as much as they can possibly -
then turn around and
Spend it foolishly
We've created us a credit card mess
We spend the money we don't possess
Our religion is to go and blow it all
So it's shoppin' every Sunday at the mall

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store

Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
It's such a beautiful thing--Ka-ching!
Lots of diamond rings
The happiness it brings
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things

When you're broke go and get a loan
Take out another mortgage on your home
Consolidate so you can afford
To go and spend some more when
you get bored

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store

[Repeat Chorus]

Let's swing
Dig deeper in your pocket
Oh, yeah, ha
Come on I know you've got it
Dig deeper in your wallet

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store

[Repeat Chorus]

Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things

I'm a jeans and t-shirts kind of guy when I'm not at work. I buy most of my clothes at Eddie Bauer when things go on sale (never pay retail! NEVER!) and since I'm a computer guy at work (we are widely perceived to be a little weird), I don't have to dress up much there either. I go mostly for khakis and solid colour shirts.

And I haven't shaved since my daughter was a baby. She's 19 now. I trim it up once a week or so, so it's only a centimeter long. Best thing about it is that I don't have to scrape and lacerate my face every day, I have the tools to trim it without touching my skin. I do like to be neat and well groomed, but I hate shaving (it hurts), so I stopped.
