Bah I cannot do anything about that but I understand your point with the mismatched brands. Unless other shoe manufacturers start producing 4E shoes for my Sasquatch feet I am stuck with New Balance sneakers.

Personally I do not care about brand names; I just care about comfort and if it fits me without looking like an eyesore.

I get through life just fine. I'm just continually in dismay at how little effort people in this country put into their wardrobe. How we dress influences our society. If we dress crassly, those around us are going to act and behave accordingly and not expect to do better. However, if we dress with class, respect, and like we have money, that's how people are going to act and expect thus setting the bar high for societal behavior and performance.

Really?
Well I don't dress like a hipster in the first place. And Yes. There is an age where you need to just put childish things away and grow up. Men over 30 wearing shirts that are too small for them, skinny jeans, chains, graphic tees, converse, gauges, and high tops look ridiculous. Especially when they have children. What is the cut off age going to be for such a fashion sense? Surely these men aren't going to be trying to pull off the badass look at 40, 50? It's a dead end. For both men and women. And with all those tattoos they're permanently putting on their bodies, I predict there's going to be record numbers of depression in the future. Some people don't think past a day.

I don't even date men who wear polo shirts. Disgusting, yuppy, turn-off. I guess I'm low brow too...I like wearing vans with my jeans.

If only the terrorists knew how easy it was to take down our society. It only takes sneakers and t shirts. For the love of god don't tell them.

Well I and the rest of the world can attest to the fact that American attire has taken a turn for the worst. We are world famous for drabby public attire. People literally go shopping and go to the airport in sweatpants now. Ugh. This is completely unacceptable for the first world.

I agree with everything you've stated in this thread.

I have never been to the airport in sweatpants but seriously, if a person is on a 16 hour flight, would they want to be dressed up? I know I wouldn't.

For myself, sweatpants are only worn as comfy clothes in the house and I only wear yoga pants to my chiropractor.

Times are just different. I know how you feel because I have issues with plenty of things. The things that bother you just don't happen to bother me.

Now, pajama pants on a plain may be stretching it. I don't think they should be worn outside the house. The furthest outside the house they should be worn, in my opinion, is maybe on the deck out back or to get the mail......

Are we talking about going on a date or running errands? Running errands I wear my Merrell hiking shoes, shorts and a tshirt. For going out to dinner with my wife I'll put on a collared shirt and some dress shoes if the weather warrants a pair of jeans.

If my boyfriend were wearing that on our first date, there would not have been a second date. Why should men have to wear something like that for running out to the hardware store or something like that?

It is just too much.
