    Certain uncertainty
    The thing with a lot of fashion advice is that it is targeted towards people that are casually dating, it places an extraordinary amount of importance on adornment and the physical, from the marketing perspective of rat-racers and urban sophisticates. I can't even look at these Men's magazines or Cosmopolitan, just because they just encourage careless mating, the consequences of which exhaust the patience and resources of our ever-bumching world. The men are purposefully and overly effeminate in those things, in my opinion. In one day I would ruin or split those tighty my-pants and fancy sneaker-shoes and what-not.

    Now, that didn't stop me from getting a shirt from Macy's, I cannot tell a lie. I have a fine array of Wal-Mart parachute shirts, and two shirts from Macy's that are way too tight, but that's because I am a pig and eat too much.

    For me personally, practicality and comfort overrule current fashion trends, I guess I look ridiculous to many people, but I get stuff done.

    The best fashion accessory is confidence and success, and if you have that, you aren't "trying," you just are, which is precisely what makes a person attractive.

    Yep. Context. 99% of the posters on this forum are well outside of the context of this video.


    I'll also add that putting too much effort into not caring how you look, especially when you explicitly state that you don't care how you look, is in and of itself a form of caring how you look. By drawing attention to that fact, you're making it known that you want to appear that you don't care. By deliberately wearing fashion faux pas, you're making an effort to appear careless.

    Looking perfectly nondescript requires blending in with the crowd and not drawing attention to what you're wearing.

    I agree with most of these.

    I don't think it's ironic at all. I think she's saying - just so you know, if you are after girls, we don't generally want you to follow silly trends or do extreme things.

    As with many things, I'm intrigued by the number of folks posting definitively without reading or watching the subject.

    Anyone who thinks that she was espousing following trends or wearing impractical clothes simply didn't watch or if they did, failed to process.

    As I think someone else noted, the basic gist is: simple, tasteful, classic, properly-fitting clothing. Which also tends to be relatively comfortable and stand the test of time. And not necessarily a controversial and challenging message, by the way.

    I think she was recommending elegant simplicity and I agree with her.

    Stage shirts are another thing altogether.

    elegant simplicity does not work for every body or personality type, of course

    I wear nasty old shoes, baggy ill fitting clothes, and a couple other things on that video, almost every day, and I have a wonderful wife who loves me to pieces - for very different reasons - and knows what is actually important in life. This is like a list of things you shouldn't wear on a first date, mixed in with a couple of her personal pet peeves. Understaning what actually matters beyond the first couple of dates is what separates the matures from the immatures of the modern world.

    I am so glad I am happily married as well. The video however is helpful in that it helps men to avoid the women who want guys that look like what she describes. No guy I know avoids all 21 points. I still rock the occasional concert logo T-shirt. I wear dress shoes with rubber soles. I wear flip flops sans socks of course on the weekends. My wife did finally throw out my King of The Hill boxers that she bought for me, .....as a joke,.... i think......

    There are only 5 that we wear, but there are 21 that we shouldn't.
