I would not be around him for awhile. If he asks why, tell him that you are tired of him harassing you about your clothes and you will continue to avoid him until he stops. Just because he is a relative doesn't mean you have to see him or put up with that kind of crud.

Yes, expound please. What type of clothes do you wear? Normal, outrageous, fashion edge, preppy, dark side. What type?

None really (tips that is). This is envy and jealousy. Envy of what you are wearing, and jealous of your accomplishments (dominating the conversation). He will not change. Engaging him will only create family drama. If you can avoid him during family visits, do so. He's not worth your energy and his insults are starting to affect your self esteem (you're posting on CD about this, thus, thinking about it).

Sorry you have to go through this. Family envy and jealousy is HORRIBLE.

I'm probably too blunt for my own good, but when it comes to things like this, I say, "When I want your opinion, I'll ask for it."
