I’m just curious.
Guys, how exactly do you shop for your working apparels?
For the first time i temaned guys to shop for their office wear. I was horrified.
Every single piece of shirt looked exactly the same to me! Except in color and the width of lines printed on it. I can easily photoshop a hundred patterns with one sample.
Gary was asking for some opinions. So I picked up a shirt with chocolate hue and strawberry stripes.
Me: I think this looks nice.
TT: Are you out of your cheesing mind? Of all things, this is the most ah beng piece i can find in the entire shop.
Me: 0_o How… so?
TT: It just is! Ask Gary.
Me:*turns to Gary* Do you think this looks very ah beng?
Gary: OMG! So geli! This is the epitome of all ah bengness!
I had no idea. With my taste, i decided that i just shouldn’t buy anything for a man.
Me: Then which exactly do you think is nice?
TT: *points to a wallpaper* This.
Me: What?! That’s because the model is hot! The shirt is no different from any other i’ve seen.
TT: Haiya you dunno one la!
How to be tasteful in choosing men’s formal wear? Material? Brand? Color? The cutting is all the same! Guy’s fashion is so awfully sien.
Isn’t it pathetic? Think of a man’s shirt, you draw this.
Can be completed with two strokes!
Think of a girl’s top, you have a hundred ways to draw it. Also, you can choose to expose whichever part you like, neckline, midriff, back! And you can play with whatever colors you want. 😀
Men’s shoes are even more horrifying. They are only available in two colors.
And i can never tell their difference.
It’s really a blessing to be a girl! 😀
They can even wear cheese bread and tortoises on their feet.
I guess that’s the difference between man/boy and woman/gal.
It sucks to be a guy 😛
Yea,I agree with u.Every single piece of shirt looks exactly the SAME 2 me too! 🙂
haha but it gives them less headache to decide what to wear!
aiyaaa….that’s y la…. i always pick pick pick until whole day also don know which to buy,….After i buy surely regret one….and then the whole set damn expensive laa….sien la….Guy’s clothes is so expensive laaaaaaaaaaaa……SAD, Cheesingly SAD….
well its ok wat..i can buy my clothes with no problem..whether its tie or shirts..or pants..after all if money is not a problem..then theres no problem
Easy to pick and I would welcome a girl friend/girlfriend/sales girl opinion on what she found nice. I mean come on, TT and Gary didn”t elaborate why that shirt is ‘ah beng’.. saying ‘it just is’ doesn’t cut it to me.
Cut, material, color, collar type, cuff type.. all important aspects there. Guys do unfortunately have less choice of what to wear (I think this is more due to dress code policies) when it comes to formal/work wear but you can still style yourself up. I’ve never felt any regret over what I’ve bought, its been the opposite – regret about what I didn’t buy.
Agree!! it’s so boring shopping for men! The main things to choose/decide will be the colour/print and cutting. The “dressing up” game is definitely for us, girl!! Yeah ~
Eh we have snakeskin as well ok..
Looks like G2000 in the curve hehe.
Hey eventhough men have less chioces in fashion that makes up for less spendings……….since most cloths look the same having one in the closet is more then enough, not like you girls which has many cloths of the same pattern in different colour and cuttings in your closet -__-lll.
Therefore it can be said that one of the main reason MEN dont spend so much is cuz of the lack of fashionable designs……. thx god i am a man, cuz of this i am not flat broke every month… hahahaha
just walk into any shop…
whichever that catches my eyes… 🙂
that’s it.. i’m gonna buy that.. but price does matter as well..
cause i’m stingy in spending on cloths.. 😛
It’s really not that hard picking out nice “working apparel” for men. I just go to nice stores, like Lord and Taylor, and brows around until something catches my eye. They have tons of high quality brands, so it’s just a matter of picking out something you like.
on the contrary, its actually more of a challenge to actually come up with something interesting, given the limited “resources” we men are challenged with.
look at it this way: if a guy manages to pull off a fashionable outfit from something boring, it only proves alot about his ability in creating an image and taste. manipulating the mundane into something creatively approachable is not an easy task, and obviously stylish if done successfully, much like the “toning down from the wide arrays” of the female fashion world. (but as a guy, i personally think that it’s even more of a feat! hehe)
yaya,agree wif u…kinda difficult 2 buy clothes 4 guys.my dad asked my opinion and after i’ve chosen 4 him,he’ll hv lotsa comments….gee, it’s so difficult to determine wat’s nice n wat’s not…coz they look d same 2 me even if it’s juz diff hue of colours
the other way to look at it: if a guy wear the same shirt and slacks 5 days a week, nobody would notice except probably the smell. that makes their shopping easier.
for girls, a dress that you wore more 3 times a month, someone would start commenting “eh you like this dress very much hoh wear it so often…”
Depend on the guy lar…you walk into G2000 of course la…depend on the industry u’re working in also. Like me working in design industry, I wear bright colored shirts, jeans, pants, etc
BTW, where did u take the picture of those mens shoes? G2000 also? Like the brown one. hehehe
looks like you have some questions regarding cuts and etc huh? check out GQ.com
actually whichever color you pick would depend on the person wearing it their personality… if he is confident, bold colors works fine…
shirt cuts are a pain. if your buddy find a shop that have shirts that fits well, stick with the store… else he might need to get to it tailored to his size… lots of guys dont do this because it takes time and $$$… but a nice fit = fitting cuts and not some baggy shirt hanging out on the side or sleeve longer than it needs to be.
alright, enough of my babbling… have fun shopping with the boys!!
nah… men, today, have alot to choose from too. 😉
btw, the shirts on display look vey nice.
depends on preference. Some patterns do look gay. Guys are usually hardheads and they stick to certain patterns in life. It applies to clothes to, there are patterns which appeal to them and there are those which dont. Just look at the shirts that gay guys and straight guys wear, u’ll see a general difference in pattern. I say general because between gays there are manly gays and girly gays, so there again, will be a difference. LOL
Well the idea of having a lady’s opinion kinda helps.
Most guys would like to know if a lady finds his shirt nice on him or otherwise.
Never buy shirts from G2000,perhaps the 2 of them should try out ZARA Men,M.Dutti or RAOUL..
End of it, some of us men just wanna look good and feel good at the same time.
omg haha you’re so right. i never can figure out how guys shop for their clothes too coz everything looks the same!and if they bared their midriffs and wore hipsters…………………………aiyo sure kena banyak banyak.
heehee *twirls around on tips of toes*
im so glad im a girl :DDDDDDD
haha…saw some comments that suit me….
every guy know those working apparels more or less the same, so try something colourful, let ur gal friend to choose for u, and mix and match with other apparels. (since i dun have to wear to work, i can mix until the shop promoters questioning me….it’s our brand? lol)
life is full of fun….it’s true queen?
Seriously as long as they fits, and not to girlish color… Im ok to go…
what is the difference between the ordinary stripes and those stripes from Raoul? My boss always say : See the Raoul stripes? Is sooo elegant. So tastefully. Don’t you think so?
But some look like my gong-gong pyjamas.. I dunno why…
yeah…guys dun have much options when it comes to clothing…….so for me, the deciding factors are whether they are comfortable, and whether the quality is good? (of coz i have to look presentable in it!)………….
haha.tht is why i always thought being a girl is always an advantage when it comes to clothing and fashion..
They get to choose to wear either skirt or jeans or shorts,while guys are just jeans or shorts.And the like wht you said,guy’s shoes look all the same.hahha..
G2000. nuff said. wait. cufflinks.
suit. silk tie.
I don’t like the advertisements appearing in every post.
haha I agree with ya! You have to look hard to see the difference between de leather shoes..:P
And that’s why its called art to design clothes for men. =)
lol that’s why men never get why girls can spend hours looking at clothes ^_^
hahahahaha you’re SO RIGHT!!! i was *just* having this conversation while shopping with my mom the yesterday. :D:D you rock cheesie
Sigh. It’s sad being a man.
Even worse being a gay professional.
I just buy 1 or everything i like or till my card breaks 🙂
I dont understand men’s fashion at all.
Everything looks the SAME, except
its mind boggling when you wonder how they can actually make a decision..women would be stoned
aha… someone just mentioned size, shape n color.
Yes, men comes in all sizes, shape n color.
So, it’s definitely better men to get dresses in anything to look good.. because some are just looks too cheekie when naked.
I have to agree! Thats why as a guy, I tend to mix and match various styles from across the isle.
For instance I cant remember the last time I wore “guys jeans”.
I have a nice collection of kilts and skirts for summer.
I have more “womes shoes” than mens. I rarely wear anything without some type of heel, that includes “mens shoes”. Sketchers has great mens shoes!
As far as shirts, I go shopping in the world market, I almost exclusively wear mens Kurtas from India. They are stylish, they have great embroidered patterns and look like nothing found in Merica!
This is not to say I am a crossdresser per say. To be labled a M to F I would have to shave my beard off. I merely have a unique style that drives the women crazy and pisses the guys off because they dont have the guts.
