So do you wear for comfort or for style?

    I usually dress just for comfort.

    Polo-T shirt with bermudas and my favourite leather sandals.
    Sometimes I would wear a cap (if I had a bad hair day). But recently I wore a black fedora during my bad hairday and I felt "right". So sometimes I would put on my black fedora. People would think I'm weird for my weird dressing combination, but oh well I'm just being me.

    What about you guys?

    Depends on the event. Usually a combination of both

    It depends on what I am doing. If I am going somewhere where I don't really care about I will walk out with sweat pants drop any of my ts on and w.e But if I am going somewhere where I am going to hang out with people and chill I would dress in my normal everyday clothes.

    Comfort. I look like a complete beach bum with my messy dreads anyway, so I'm as unfashionable as one can be.

    Fedora's always remind me of Jason Mraz. Doesn't really look too weird. I normally dress for comfort. Last week for example, I wore a white t shirt and jeans to work everyday. Funny thing is, no one said a single thing to me about it. It's almost like people don't notice what you wear unless you stick out either in a bad way, or a good way.

    Image doesn't really matter much to me. I could care less what you think about what I wear. Like most people social status is normally defined but what you wear so I try to stay presentable.

    Why not both? I always dress appropriate, you never know who you can meet.

    Oh yes, of course. During important events (Graduations, weddings, .etc), I would dress formally.

    But other than that, fuck that. lol.
    And I'm wearing the black fedora out of randomness. Not because it is "black hat".

    usually just jeans and a t shirt/hoodie, I don't dress "formally" if I don't have to. Unless it is after 6 PM, then of course it's time to don the tux.

    I dress for comfort any time I am working, but I dress to impress when I go out. Which is not alot.

    And Fedoras are straight g.

    Most days I work at home, and just wear PJs until gym time, then jeans and a t-shirt after. If I'm going out in town, it's time to put on a suit, 'cause you can meet clients anywhere.

    The kind of client that would talk to someone in a suite anyways. Those are the only ones that matter though I guess.

    For me its a little complicated. Where I live, its 36°C in summer, blistering hot, and in winter its 0°-1°C with icy wind blowing down your sweater.. (that's not really cold, but I really hate being cold) So my first priority is comfort, whether its shorts and flip fops or 3 sweaters and a coat.. but still try to look nice, i'm into cashmere sweaters at the moment, bought two last month. That is the bomb.

    Style. :)

    Comfort if I'm home or just around the area. But if I'm going to a mall, on a date, a party, an event, or anything that needs me to wear casual clothes, I make sure that I am wearing something nice. :)

    I'm all about comfort. Since I work from home, I'm almost always in flannel pajama pants and a combed cotton t-shirt. When I go out, I'm almost always in flip flops (even in winter) and jeans. Usually on top I wear a cotton shirt that fits nicely. I'm not much on putting on the ritz. I do have a rule though...no low cut tops! The last time I wore one, I went on a date. We decided to go to the gun range at the last minute. As a result, I kept having hot brass eject and land in my cleavage!! OUCH. Now I have a (hopefully temporary) bullet shaped scar on my chest. :(

    Style is in the mind, because at the end of the day, no one really gives two fucks what you wear. Just vein and simple people seem to think they do.
