My advice:
Stick to living on either coast and you'll be fine. The middle of the country is a different view. More mixed culture on the coasts and more fashion.
A lot of men where jewelry in California, and New York, Florida, Washington. Not many wear it in Oklahoma, or the like. That said, I don't like bad attitudes so loosen up a bit first.

Sport it!! Johnny does.

Big Difference. Depp is in show business, and that's a part of his sales pitch, same as Lady Gaga and Madonna. Doesn't mean its normal or accepted as good fashion. Being accepted by Society as an intelligent human being, and being accepted by Groupies as a spectacle are two different things. In one, your an asset, and the other your entertainment, which includes laughing.

Your also wrong about the different parts of the Country. People are the same everywhere. You may blend in because there are more like you, in that particular location, but not because your like the majority.

If your so great where you came from, why are you here, among commoners?

Why did you come here and star a thread, asking us commoners why people think your a fruit pie?

It isn't so much about what you wear or how much (although I find your ostentatiousness offputting at best); it's how your flaunt it. I suspect you are in everyone's face about your show. I'm sure that LadyDoodoo and her ilk would love your flamboyance. Not so most of us "regular Janes".

Mangagement ring indeed. Enormous eyeroll and turning away of the head.

The problem is the meterosexuality, it is on par with androgyny.

Meterosexual

A person (typically male) who takes pride in his appearance, dresses impeccably, goes for facials, expensive hair cuts and things of that nature. They are often assumed to be gay.
"Sam? Oh he isn't gay. I know he fusses a lot about his appearance, but he really isn't gay. He's just a meterosexual."



Androgyny is the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics. Sexual ambiguity may be found in fashion, gender identity, sexual identity, or sexual lifestyle.

Why wouldn't people be confused at your appearance?

"If you had been to any of the top European boarding school's you'd have had a few lessons in"

With the amount and quality of jewelry the OP sports, "gay" wouldn't be at the top of my list. Here's what would:

- Mafioso middle management
- Real estate/legal shyster
- Jewelry shop owner (from a sketchy neighborhood)
- Insecure conspicuous consumer
- "Oriental" carpet store owner (which is a front for some other business)
- 'B'-list actor I've never heard of
- A guy begging to get mugged.

But not gay. Most gays I know don't wear much jewelry, if any.

Male or female, straight or gay, understated elegance will always trump overstated flash, and that's the case on both sides of the ocean.

Thanks for that post. Interesting, to say the least.

Seems I smell something, and it ain't from the "Collection of Personal Fragrances."

Reminds me of an old song. Went sort of like " I was trolling through the Park one day, In the very Merry Month of May."

Your right. I know one who wears more Jewelry than I would, but its all first class, very expensive, well placed, and is in harmony with all the rest. First impression would be a very rich playboy. No bling. Even his watch is clean, plain leather band, and expensive looking and unusual. Has a built in cool looking compass that works. Class and quality. I told him he could leave that to me in his will. Very good people.

The rest I know, aren't into Jewelry. So point well made.
