You can't click on the interface buttons, Elyscape. It's a picture.
Now you just need Justice, Wealth, and Lovers.
Vulcan? Stampede? What are you, some kind of amateur?
Come, join us at the table where our guns have 144 dart capacities.
Hahahaha. An old friend of mine posted some pictures on Facebook from our trips to the San Diego Comic Con back in 1997 and 1998. This was me in 98.
Yep, totally feminine.
White sneakers! So American!
Lose the hat, better shoes and some chest hair and you could totally be a Eurotrash bro.
The white sneakers were not a style choice. Rather, my good black shoes developed problems either on the trip (I think) or maybe right before the trip, and I had to buy an emergency pair of shoes. Unfortunately, they didn't have darker shoes in my size, and I didn't have time to shop everywhere for them. I was not happy.
Also, I'm not sure if I should thank you or not. Was the Eurotrash remark a compliment? Heh.
The hat MAKES that outfit. Just the right touch of swag'.
It was more a comment on the stylistic mores of the Eurobro crowd. They shoot for macho but really end up amidst androgyny or at least effete in the clothing department.
And it was intended as a compliment, but looking at it it was really done in a rather cackhanded way. So I'll just say, yes, I totally get your point and you are completely correct in your assertion.
I'm good with that. I'm not shooting for macho anyway. :)
I love hats. I look terrible in them, but I love hats.
You misspelled awesome.
My first thought was "You look like Jon Cryer".
Which is to say "Yep, totally feminine."
Stopping to drink a tasty glühwein at the Stuttgart Christmas Market.
No, I look terrible in hats. My face is too short or something. I can kinda get away with backwards ball cap, but that's about it. No way can I pull off a fedora.
My Friday night will be spent shaving. Exciting! But I've never worn a beard in my life until now and this one only due to my safety razor being packed away in storage. This is three months worth of growth. If it wasn't for the job interview I have tomorrow, I'd go for broke and see how long it takes to grow a beard of Rev. Gibbons proportions.
go home face you are drunk
Edit: Well, might as well post the after.
After years of shaving with a DE I can easily say that disposables suck. :(
Yeah, you almost murdered yourself with it. Grats on stopping the blood.
That first shave after sporting a beard is always painful though. Hope you at least trimmed it first...makes it a lot easier.
That said, I think the beard suits you.
Bryce, did you leave long strips of beard, aka sideburns?
What kind of job are you interviewing for? Because
Barista, juggler/unicycle rider/tall bike rider, Urban Outfitters clerk: Keep the sideburns
Everything else: Shave the sideburns.
Nice pics. :)
But... but... I don't wanna look like Jon Cryer... D:
RSharp: Trim first? You are presuming I am a wise or smart man. This is an error. (My clippers are in storage and I thought I'd be fine without them. This too was an error.)
jerri blank: Yep, cocaine era Neil Young burns. The interview's for a gig at Whole Foods (yikes), so I think that qualifies for the "keep" category.
Thanks for the kind words and (likely sympathetic) likes. :)
Whole Foods? Carry on, then. Maybe also wear a jaunty bowler.
The beard would have been bonus points for Whole Foods.
Coincidence? Here's me at the Lübeck Christmas Market - Glühwein already consumed:
Now I want to go to a German Christmas market and drink mulled wine. Thanks,
IainC and Google, for broadening my cultural horizons.
A Bud Light would do in a pinch, right?
You are someone (as a straight male) whom I would totally not hit on but talk to as an interesting-seeming person. hopefullly this is close to what you would like to project!
And here's another christmas market photo after consuming some tasty Glühwein.
Here's me hanging out with some lovely ladies! :)
Last one. Concert tonight, the band threw out shirts. They were girl shirts. Put it on anyways
Got on stage with the band and the look is not too bad. ;)
Nobody above the age of, say, 19 should attempt to wear a backwards baseball cap.
I'm willing to allow for a bit of youthful indiscretion. You have to have at least SOME amount of "oh god, I can't believe I used to wear that" looking back on you teen years.
Besides, if I'm gonna get picky I'd claim that people ought not wear baseball caps unless they actually play. It's almost as bad as the dudes who wander around all day in basketball shorts.
At that point I'm just waving my cane around, though.
These two gentlemen beg to differ:
Hotlinked image rehosted locally:
A backwards baseball cap is wholly appropriate for keeping your hair out of your face, and the dirt out of your hair, when crawling under the house.
That's a euphemism, right?
also I just want to say that Glühwein is the devil and totally like drinking Satan's piss and both
Hanzii should be ashamed of themselves.
Surely that's not really a situation where your primary concern is fashion, though.
Hey, speak for yourself.
I'm trying to think of ANY situation where my primary concern is fashion. Not coming up with anything.
Strolling down the catwalk?
Promise I am done with the liquored up attention whoring. At the time, a skin tight t-shirt pic seemed like the perfect fit for this thread with the rest of you lovely people, but i fear I am bordering on being an obnoxious douche.
I liked it. I just felt creepy expressing HOW MUCH I liked it.
Did you get all my PMs?
