Do you believe what I said, when I said that I tried to reply in a friendly manner, with the intent of rising up to the challenge?

I believe you meant it in that way, I don't think that's how it came across though, but it's fine. I'm not bothered.
I'm not asking you to rise to any challenge, that would imply you changing your style which isn't what this website's about. It's not a big deal.

I'm a bit confused. You said that you wanted to see more guys with different looks. I'm a guy, & my look is different. Now I get the impression that it isn't good enough. :^(

Many Olympic athletes rise up to the challenge of winning gold. They don't really need to change who they are, if I understand correctly. I don't see how I would need to change my style.

Have you looked at any of my photos?

Anyhow, at least you believe that I wasn't trying to be rude. :^)

I didn't say I wanted to see more guys with different looks, I said LB doesn't, in my opinion need more guys, it needs guys that are more original.
Yes I've looked at your photos.

I forgot to mention that I'll try to be more careful with my words next time. Even though I'm sure that my phrasing was okay, I still want as many people as possible to be happy. :^)

Have a nice day. :^)

You girls ask for boys to be original, and the ones who are get 0 hypes, because they aren't ATTRACTIVE to you. See this is my frustration with mens fashion, it is conservative, timid, and over saturated with denim, plaid, polos, and cardigans. Yet some of the biggest names on Lookbook are wearing exactly that. So what do you girls want? Originality? or Style? Because those are two different words and have two different meanings in fashion.

A boy can be very original, but so original that you might not want to take him out in public. Or he can have an over-saturated store bought look, and have style, and be excellent take out material.

This rant may offend someone, and if it does, Je M'excuse. I deeply apologize as that was not my intention. I am just letting out steam on my current frustrations with men's fashion.

To tell the truth I don't see what the problem is. So what if there is more females than males. And women do have more freedom to experiment and have a lot of choice. I don't really mind!

Men's fashion feels really stagnant to me... I mean, there are only so many different sorts of shirts and trousers that we can wear before we run out of different and interesting options, y'know? : \ Girls've got it good, what with their skirts, and dresses, and ability to wear boys' clothes without being publicly lynched. I believe the phrase I'm searching for is *le sigh.*

YES finally someone who understands my pain. Womens' clothing is some much more diverse, they have options, and better access. Go to any city center and there will be 50 women designer boutiques for every one mens or unisex boutiques. That's why sometimes i just get 'certain' things from the women's section just get it two or three sizes up depending on the cut and you've got something that most other guys don't. Dont get me wrong though i kno not everything can be unisex. you have to be very selective.

Boys are awesome! Of course we need more boys!!! :D

But I guess, most guys would feel gay posting their fashion on a site... I know my brother would...

Meh, LB needs more boys that don't look alike. Girls have a VERY wide verity of clothing, but boys just need to learn how to mix and match. Honestly, a lot of the guys on this site look gay and non manly. It's not hard, it's just that more boys need to think for themselves when it comes to fashion. Take a girls opinion, or better yet, your mom's.

so a girl's opinion on your attire makes you look less gay? you make no sense

less boys tend to care about how they look than girls in general. that would account for the discrepancy in numbers

I think womenswear is much more interesting then menswear and there's definitely a lot more money on the women's end.

There are some interesting guys here on lookbook and they really post interesting styles.
But there are by far not so many males interested in fashion than females. If I look around me in in our Company there are maybe 10% who care, for the other 90% old jeans, a cotton t-shirt and the old jogging shoes are the perfect outfit for every day.

I do care and I use also elements from female wardrobe to make my style interesting.

I came here in March 2012. From the waist up, I'm usually your normal dude. But, 10 years prior to my joining, I realized that there was only about five or six different choices (various lengths of trousers in black, blue, brown, khaki, and sometimes white), clothing-wise from the waist down that was "socially acceptable" and not wearing something related to a specific country, etc. I also realized that it was time to think for myself and to please myself, not others. So, I went from wearing jeans and shorts almost 100% of the time, to about 25-30% of the time. Started wearing skirts I'd bought off eBay and from thrift stores. Noticed that some issues I'd been having cleared up as well. My family didn't like it, but, we reached a compromise a few months later, when I started wearing kilts. Did that for a few years, then, in the summer of 2009, it got too hot. Went back to wearing skirts and noticed that hardly anyone in the general public cared.

In any case, guys have got to get over the pack mentality and start finding their own styles, instead of doing the same thing that they've done since the age of 5 or 6, if they want to be original... Yes, it does require more thinking as to what works with what, instead of just doing the smell test and, if a said item passes the test, wearing it for the umpteenth time. There currently are precious few guys here who actually seem to wear clothing that's not the same thing that most every other guy you see on the street wearing.

Heck, you don't even have to shop the other side of the store to be original. There are many casual (and formal) kilt companies out there that are just waiting for a guy to either drop in and buy a kilt of some sort or order one online. That's the easiest way to break out of the mold and start being more original. With respect to having to be Scottish, Irish, or Welsh to wear a kilt, nope, that's not a requirement. Only request is to act normal, instead of acting strangely while wearing one.
