I think guys can say pretty much the same thing for women. As a whole in america women aren't exactly oozing with class. Where I live now in upstate NY, the women are about as original as can be "sarcasm". Either, they all look the same in this regard of the black north face jacket, blue jeans with those tacky ugg boots. Yeah, you women sure can point the finger at us, yet most of you act like sheep. Or if you do show a little originality you look tacky as hel l with your tramp stamps, pierced everything and easy look. Either everyone looks the same, slutty or weird. I don't see much class among women anymore either. P.S. if you are getting your style from Paris freakin Hilton and every other wannabe celebrity you probably are among the sheep.

I don't know about all guys, but I prefer my women with class. Please women leave the stamp tramps alone, stop piercing every darn facial part and the latter, and last but not least you could use a little discretion. We don't need to see every body part all the time. There is something to be said for allowing the imagination to be at play. If we want to see what every girl has, we can take them to Mc' donalds buy them a burger and rent a movie and chances are we might get a better view.

I saw a white girl the other day with corn rows and baggy pants with a sag...Now that's class.

I can't be the only one who thinks that men's (even boys) fashion is SO BORING!

(runs and hides from the "he-ain't-straight" police)

yea, you're definitely gay.

This.

Fashion is for gay men and women. Mens fashion (jeeethuth chrithe!) is preferred on men by fellow gay men and girls, not women.

If you want a girl, load up on the new-age shades and hipster apparel. If you want a woman, continue on worrying about solving problems and building things, not your khaki's.

Cambridge (if you can get in) is one of the best schools in Europe.. and it costs just as much as every other university in England.

"In 2010–11, the tuition fee for UK/EU students studying for their first undergraduate degree is £3,290 per year for all courses*, as outlined in our Access Agreement and approved by the Office for Fair Access (OFFA)."

Undergraduate Admissions: - Tuition fees

That's cheaper than resident fees for most State Universities..

I know loads of people that go to University in England and it's much much cheaper than the United States (food, rent, social life, etc).

I know people that go to University in the States and have graduated.. with student loan debt.

People used to dress up in this country--look at old photos. Today, they'd rather look like a bunch of street people.

Every once in a while I will see a dude with a unique sense of style. But very rarely. On the other hand, when in Europe I noticed almost every guy has style. Is it just taboo in this country for men to dress nice or unique in a casual situation? Thoughts?
I don't like the 'men dressing like boys' look either. I especially despise caps--whether facing forward or worn backwards. I can see wearing a cap if you're driving a tractor or playing baseball, but otherwise, it just makes most men look silly and undignified.

I like to dress pretty nicely but not over the top. I don't wear ridiculously tight clothing, skinny ties or huge sunglasses. However, I do like to wear shirt and tie to work....nice dress pants...nice shoes. On weekends, I like to wear a nice polo with either jeans or corduroys if it's colder out...and shorts if it's hot out. I think that's manly enough.
