The situation remains one which is not choiceworthy. In the second, you do. This makes you a cliché of a different sort, and also reprehensible. This list is exhaustive.

The skyblue jacket with maroon sweater vest, over mustard button up shirt, with jazz hat (with rhineseone encrusted music note pins on it ) and huge glasses with wood trim -- DAMN.

There was a sort of grandpa sweater at this store in the Haight I kind of wanted some five weeks ago, but didn't purchase. Bave was wearing a grandpa sweater at udcon2. It worked.

Those pants don't even seem so old-man to me. Maybe I'm further gone than I realized.

A small price to pay for having messy hair that appears artfully messy instead of just un-combed. That is, I'd loathe myself if I spent minutes in front of a mirror trying to look ungroomed, but I'd be thrilled if my hair, of its own accord, assumed hipster-shape.

Don't wash your hair for a couple of days, and it might do that, if it happens to be cut that way.

But I understand from the few of the comments I've read on that site that this guy has been seen before, so apparently he's studied.

I just can't take this stuff seriously. Grandpa clothes are fine. I have several thin cardigans with sleeves that extend closely down over my wrists and palms: excellent. There's nothing remotely affected about it.

Let's give this a whirl, shall we?

Insofar as IPH is (we may assume) quite concerned that his hair appear artfully messy, it is in fact not messy at all—that's it's finished state. Hence, it is simply A Mess.

That didn't really work, did it? But the point is this: looking at IPH one doesn't see someone whose hair is a mess but who somehow looks good anyway, whose messy hair in fact even contributes to his look. One sees someone who wants so to be seen. (Whether or not his hair actually is merely messy or productized or whatever is immaterial.) The obviousness of what he's attempting prevents him from accomplishing it, since what he's attempting is the sort of thing where art, if present, must be concealed with extreme art.

His hair is third from the truth, is what I'm saying.

Also one sees far too much of it, and it's silly.

He looks kind of discomfited to me, pace parsley.

'The square is seldom if ever cool,' says Bloomquist. 'He's not with it,' that is, he doesn't know 'what's happening.' But if he manages to figure it out, he moves up a notch to 'hip.' And if he can bring himself to approve of what's happening, he becomes 'groovy.' And after that, with much luck and perseverance, he can rise to the rank of 'cool.'"

Ben, if I have to try to find something annoying about this guy, I suppose I might think he has product in his hair.

I want to take this opportunity to announce to everyone that I used a (small) amount of product in my hair at DCon. There, I said it.

I would argue that since product takes about three seconds to apply, anyone who takes more than three seconds to choose their clothes in the morning has no basis to look down on product users.

I really can't stand "product" as a mass noun.

PGD --- I'm pretty sure that people who object to the use of `product' aren't objecting to the time it took.

No mercy expected...none received!

But stigmatized groups will never be accepted if brave individuals are not willing to come out of the closet.

Ok, I admit it. I'm brave.

I wear 'product' in my hair. Jesus, it's a perfectly normal thing to do.

The fact that this made me laugh out loud is clear evidence that I am really a 14 year old boy, isnt it?

We called product grease. Will, my laughing out loud is clear evidence I am a 13 year old pretending to be 62.

Today's product is far more technologically advanced.

I wore a bandanna over my hair to paint my bedroom this weekend. When I finally took it off my hair stood straight up. I looked like a little troll toy. It was awesome. I felt unstoppable.

huh. what is up with knocking skinny men?
esp. from women who object to size standards for themselves??

to each his own! this data point is always drawn to skinny guys... without thinking about it, i usually end up with boyfriends whose waists are no more than a couple inches bigger than my own. if i had to guess, it might be related to not wanting to be too egregiously smaller/of less body volume/outmuscled by the person i will end up in bed with... but long lines also just look beautiful.

and i will admit i had previously saved a tab of this guy's photo, in smaller size (which looks better), before seeing it on unfogged, because i liked it. the jacket & collar are great. plus he looks like he would be quick to share a laugh with you if you met him on the street.

i am feeling suspicious that you on unfogged are in favor of men looking boring. ? no? are you sure?
