fashion police

so-called proverb

We were playing fashion police at Ms Mae's late on Saturday
night, on the way home, stopped in an emptyish bar for a minute,
and that was adorning the wall in the ladies room.

music: Doves

So the old spanish were hard on bad dressers too?

Apparently? It seems more fit to the Italians, really, but hey.

We were at least trying to point out the well dressed people too, the bars by my house, they're really crowded at 3am. (And generally highly entertaining.)

Spanish proverb. Hmmm.

Irish proverb - Ag duine féin is fearr a fhios cá luíonn an bhróg air.

The wearer best knows where the shoe pinches.


You would more than likely see these people walking barefoot, shoes in hand, at 3:00AM.

Heh. People stagger home at different times around here; that particular bar we were in does not close. (Ever. Not even Christmas; I live about ten blocks away and I drove past it on my way home.)

Only things that kept my shoes on New Year's Eve was the cold and that the streets in the quarter are terrifying.

Now is "well dressed" a factor of many inputs? Style, uniqueness, confidence, ... ?

I'm asking mainly for an education and to maybe learn a thing or two :)

Short answer: Yes.

I could go long here... but a few points. Confidence usually follows from style, but in the cases where it doesn't, it can make things work for one person that would look terrible on the next.

Well dressed in the general sense for a guy: classic style, good shoes, all of it fitting perfectly. (Addendum to good shoes: tennis shoes need to not be boring.)

Womens' fashions are a lot stranger, and what's well dressed one year may be outdated in two, but it's the cut of the clothes being complimentary, and nothing too tight or too drapey when it shouldn't be.

There were some well dressed guys in that bar, but the girls...(I mean, not like I had room to talk, dressed punk-style like I was, but at least I wasn't wearing a dress over tights and cheap wedges.)
