Same Thing

I don’t get why a girl would go out knowing she will have on the same clothing or accessories as other girls her age. I freak out when I’m wearing the same t-shirt as another guy, but if you go into any club you’ll see at least ten girls with the same purse. And they don’t seem to mind one bit.

A few months ago I went to Atlantic City and brought along this cheap Old Navy thermal with an eagle design on the front (it seemed so stylish when I bought it). I was wearing it in the Trump Taj Mahal when I saw him: a short, ugly 60-year-old Asian man wearing the exact same shirt. Fuck! I’m not one to get embarrassed easily, but it was the most embarrassing moment of my life. I pretended I was scratching my chest to cover up the design until the Asian man went back to play Pai Gow. For the rest of the trip, I was confused about my identity.

Same clothing sightings bring up the loser question: if he’s a loser and paid money for the same shirt that I’m wearing, what does that say about me? Replace shirts with women and you get the same problem, like this one girl I dated for a while who I’ve seen with nothing but losers. Sure I’m the exception, but seriously, the Senator? With so many clothing options out there in the world, you are a failure as a individual if you are wearing the same things that most other people have. I’m not saying you need to stand out, but can you girls stop sucking Coach/DD/LV’s dick for one minute? Can you white people stop giving North Face 100% market saturation for their cheaply made vests?

I can’t do anything about my ex’s, but I have solved the same-shirt problem: I only shop at Lord & Taylor. None of my peers would dare step into that store. Problem solved!

Lord & Taylor, eh? Fancy. I agree, though. I try to rock my own style, but thats a bit difficult to do when half the women my age shop at the same stores I do. I’ve only had to deal with the awkward situation of another woman wearing the same shirt as me once. It was at a concert. I looked better in it, but I rarely wore that shirt again. I don’t know what’s up with girls carrying around the same designer purses. I don’t even think anything that comes out of coach looks halfway decent. It’s a basic design with a bunch of C’s all over it and we’re supposed to drool and drop over a hundred on it? What the hell?

I’ve had similar upsetting experiences. On the flipside, its kinda gratifying though when you see someone wearing something you USED to wear but have since retired. I can only conceive that I must have inspired them to go out and purchase it in the hopes of imitating my image.

About the purses thats beyond me. I can’t stand stores like AE that plaster their logo/name over ever item they sell, if its subtle thats one thing, but I’d rather not be a walking billboard.

Girls dress mainly to impress/outshine/defend against other girls, with attracting men as a secondary aim. They buy the same purses and dress like one another to cut down on the risk of other girls giving them dirty looks and talking about them when they go out.

I think it’s DB – Dooney & Burke.

I am not proud of that knowledge.

What are you talking about? Sixty-year-old Asian men are the coolest.

Funny, but seems kind of at odds with your typical anti-capitalist rants.

You should join the military, or some other organization that requires you to wear a uniform. That would help you get past this pot hole on you path to self actualization.

Most people like the attention of having someone else recognize what they’re wearing, that’s why they buy into the whole Coach/DD/LV scenario. It boosts their egos and makes them feel important. I think it’s better to get attention for looking different.

“Same clothing sightings bring up the loser question: if he’s a loser and paid money for the same shirt that I’m wearing, what does that say about me?”

OOOOHHH!! Judging a man as a loser on first impressions… tut tut. I would have expected better from you!

Man I do not give a fuck if another grown man sports the same clothes I have on. I gotta agree, this goes against your anti-capitalists rants. Its fucking cotton, nylon, with a tag that reads the words “made in China” for gawds sakes…

Dam Imus might as well not even bother coming back. Procter and Gamble and Staples pulled their ads…

The bag thing (and I supposed the whole fashion/trend thing) is no less than genius. Convincing women to pay $100s to $1000s for something in which you carry other items is simply brand marketing at its finest. Even those girls who seem to be part of the (mainstream) counter-culture “like” nice bags. I’ve dated women who have given off the impression that money is tight (or that their expenses are numerous), yet still go out and buy the “real” gucci or coach purse….

If you just buy plain white, blue, grey and black shirts at Targeeet — you won’t have to worry about this.

You can get “3 T’s” for 10 bucks.

What a deal.

I got laid more wearing crappy clothes then I ever did in a suit.

Women’s fashions change every year. They have to, to keep women in the stores swiping those credit cards. This intense desire to have new fashion every season produces some seriously retarded stuff. Capri pants, for example.

Men’s fashion doesn’t really change, and there’s not that much variety. You have a sleeveless shirt, you have short sleeves, you have long sleeves. You can have collarless, collared, button down. You have jeans or slacks. In some contexts you have shorts. Maybe you wear a suit. But that’s more or less it. This means there really isn’t much variety out there at all. There’s only so many different color variations you can put on a shirt before it just looks like it got ruined in the wash. Sure, you can go with something unusual, like pirate shirts or boot cut jeans, but you’re pretty much consenting to look like a fruit loop.

It is funny that an alpha male cares about someone wearing the same clothes as you.
I don’t give a shit. It is not clothes which make you unique. And clothes won’t affect your notches score, unless they are dirty.

Not to mention men usually are more interested in what is UNDER women clothes than in clothes itself. Which is the source of great disappointement at the beginning when you start fucking girls at age 14.

I actually really like Lord & Taylor. I went there yesterday, and I was really impressed by the men’s selection they had and the way the store was so organized. Definitely beats those other cluttered department stores.

You see a guy wearing the shirt as you, just take yours off and walk around bear-chested.

Or rip the sleeves off and go WV style
