Well it does show the limit of the pride you take in your own appearance. It's kinda hard for me to take anyone who wears obviously stained and worn clothing seriously. Unless your some homeless bum you can usually afford at least used clothing that is in much better shape. And I also find it odd the kind of people that go around dressed like homeless slobs usually have a fair amount of cash to their name if the rest of their possessions are anything to go by.

People are and should be absolutely free to dress in whatever they want.
And I am absolutely free to judge them for it.

You dress for the occasion. Being out of line sends a clear message the occasion is not important to you or you are not properly socialized, in which case you just shouldn't be there.

If you're out shopping or whatever, people will snicker but they won't actually care. At school and work or other organized events, it's a different story.


Well there is nothing wrong with dressing differently.

I rarely dress for occasion even if I care I pick whatever I think looks good and feels good.

That's true and fair however if you treat someone negatively due to how they look that would be an asshole move imo

SAY IT!



Okay on topic now. For centuries how a person was dressed was an indicator of their social position and/or occupation and dictated how you should behave towards that person. We just continued doing it because human group behaviors don't change very quickly.

Don't get me wrong, I don't walk up to people and go "Hey you, you are ugly and dress bad.". However I will avoid the way too tragic people, because when someone has no self-respect at all, I doubt I could learn to respect them either.

Well just because to you it seems like they have no self respect doesn't mean they don't as what is self respectable is up to opinion

No I would just go in normal everyday clothes for a funeral for a wedding I would wear a suit because I love suits

PJs are 1000x worse then someone wearing shades indoors.

So you don't think the dead are worth a little formality? I find that something of an insulting opinion considering those I've buried and been the pall bearer to were great people. If you're going to their funeral the least you could do is pretend to show a little respect mate by wearing a dark suit or if you're a soldier like me the old dress uniform and medals ya know.

Yeah, sorry, but there are certain combos of clothes which when worn in public without good reason (like your house suddenly burning down or you being homeless), just objectively scream that the person either has no self respect or that they are mentally challanged. There are bad clothes and then there are the clothes noone should wear in public.

Goos starting example would be plastc crocs with giant, dirty looking socks, pulled as high as socks can go. Men with colorfull shorts so short their balls hang out a little bit. Women with yoga pants and fluffy-fake-fur tops... SO many things.

Well that's your opinion however it's kind of dickish to judge people just because to you it's not self respecting.


But some of what you listed is obvious no self respect.

However things like for example socks and sandles are hardly like those

They are dead I care for them but they are dead they can't exactly care how I'm dressed and even if they did could they wouldn't care.
I show respect through my actions not my clothing suits aren't exactly something I would want people turning up to my funeral in.

Bro, socks and sandals don't make you look like a douchebag. They just make you super not attractive.

If you work hard to present yourself as crap, you cannot possibly expect people treating you as anything other than crap.
That is the truth and it always was. We use clothes to give clue to others about who and what we are ever since we first started using clothes. How am I a dick for observing this, dare I say it, reality?
