I saw something similar to this on another forum. He was wondering if clothes made the man. What do you think? Obviously we are judged by others on our appearence and what we wear. But are you judged correctly?

I'll start:

I am in a business (motorsports) where t-shirts are traded like currency. If you don't have a tshirt with your company's logo on it to give out.. you're just not professional. With that said, I rarely buy tshirts anymore. Maybe six or so a year. Also, I am an immature kid for being 25 years old and my wardrobe consist mainly of jeans, tshirts, an occasionally collared shirt, and hooded sweatshirts. Oh, and I get tons of free hats! Now, I'm sure I'm perceived as your basic college student type with no job, who plays PS2 all day. Which is fine with me. I'd rather be under-estimated than over-estimated. :cool:

I sometimes wear t-shirt and jeans. But I have no problem with wearing nice cloths withs a pair of casual leather shoes, in fact I prefer to dress that way. You could say I dress kinda preppy. I did up until 3 years ago when I put on about 50 lbs. I finally lost the weight and am able to fit back into my preppy clothes. woohoo for me!

Jeans, T-shirt, free hat, cowboy boots, pretty much every day of my life since the second grade. If I do have to get dressed up its boots, jeans, western shirt, and cowboy hat.

i wear umbros and tshirts all the time basically now. i haven't bought a tshirt since my freshman year in college. i got so many free ones then that i don't know if i'll ever have to buy any. yep.. i still wear tshirts from 95 all the time.
i also wear those convertivle pants a lot in the winter (just the shorts half in the summer). i very rarely wear shoes when i'm in the house or working in the yard. only when i go to town. then it is always running shoes.

now to work my dress code is .. well.. exactly the same!

i do have a nice pair of pants and 2 nice shirts and 2 ties for when i have to get dressed up that once or twice a year for something. but of course i wear running shoes then too.

Black carhart carpenter pants with some type of low cut boots. T-shirt and a lot of times a button up type of shirt over that. For work, it's usually dockers with some nice shoes and a button up shirt.

I work in an engineering department, and our standard dress is a polo shirt, jeans and sneakers. When we have customers in, or we go out somewhere on business, it's corporate logo polo shirts, dockers or dress pants and dress shoes. Thank God they ditched the dress shirt and tie a couple years back :D !

I usually wear jeans, t-shirt or dress shirt (if i'm going "out"), and flip flops regardless.

I rarely ever wear shoes unless i'm going to be doing something active or if it's cold. Then i wear dress boots from AE or something. So ya, i'm basically a prep boy...

And i hate shaving...so it usually grows for days. :D

Usually just jeans and a t-shirt if I'm not at work. Dress code at work is very strict:combat boots polished to a high shine, black beret, and a starched and pressed camoflague uniform that says

I wear t-shirts & jeans, mostly southpole and ecko. If it is cold, a hoodie. All my clothes are baggy, cause I like loose fitting clothes.
