I'm clueless, and I mean absolutely clueless, when it comes to fashion.

One day I came out with sandals and socks, my friends nearly had a field day lol, never again. Apparently this is one of the least "fashionable" things you can do. And apparently, when wearing shoes, you're supposed to wear ankle socks that only go up to your ankle so it looks like you're not wearing socks.

I don't think I'll ever understand fashion, I just copy my friends. If I were to go into a shop and buy what I think looks good I'd be laughed at before leaving the store :p

Those guys look like douches lol

They definitely look try-hard and bland. Not good fashion advice if you work in an office.

Quick thoughts from what I remember about "timeless" fashion advice:
  • Short, ankle-length socks with shorts are ok if you're wearing shoes, not if you're wearing sandals.
  • Your socks should always be a shade darker than your shoes.
  • Don't wear shoes without socks, unless you don't mind being called Swamp-foot.
  • Popped collars are lulz - just don't do it unless you wear Eau-de-Douche as a cologne.
  • You are allowed to wear only one tight-fitting clothing article. And don't overdo it. Leave the kiddies dept. to manlets like me. And try not to look too uncomfortable, especially around your crotch.
  • Traditionally, men are allowed to wear shorts but they should not show too much knee - or any at all preferably.
  • Use the colour wheel to match colors. Screw wearing monochromatic clothes and grey/white/black. Show some f*****g personnality.

Lol, like if wearing colors = having a personnality :)
A man wearing black is sexier.

Black is a terrible color for most guys, especially if you're pale (contrasts too much with your skin) and/or short (makes you appear thinner).

All things being equal, I'd choose a girl who wears bright and cheery or pastel colors over one who just wears whatever black/white/grey she happens to have on hand.

Wearing all black is even worse, "funeral-fashion" needs to die already. It doesn't make you appear sophisticated, just lazy, uptight or morose.

Dunno mate I like black, but also like brighter colours once in a while like purple.

Black can be ok if you're not too thin or pale, it's just not very original and can have too much of an impact depending on the setting, especially for a man. Wearing a simple black t-shirt in a casual setting can be fine though.

IMO, purple is dicey unless you have a darker shade of skin - dark red shades like burgundy are a safer bet and can even soften the impact of a pale and "cold" (blue-ish) complexion.

All black looks absurd, it might denote a mental illness such as depression, or being a goth.

It works though as a colour for dress pants, black dress pants go well with a variety of tops. Or black shoes and belt. Or black socks.

But never all black.

Unless it's Halloween and you're cosplaying like you're part of the Matrix.

Yeah these look pretty bad.
I like you David, but I wouldn't ever listen to any of your fashion advice because I have seen how you dress.

I'd listen to you talk about politics, science, human behaviour - but fashion - no.
