When you have an arguement with a fit bird in a smoking area because she merks you for wearing a Burbs polo but then says she likes the more senior range but doesn't know it's called Prorsum. My mate afterwards was looking at me like quote gaz Laughing out loud

When you can hold your own in a conversation with a bird doing a fashion degree and chat shit about certain designers, silhouettes etc.

When you obsessively check your garms giving them a little 360 spin that you wore the night out for stains the second you wake up before having a cup of tea or a glass of water.

When you know postage prices and methods intimately.

When more clued up fashion mates ask you wear you bought some new gear from so they can swagger jack.

When you know your ginghams from your madrases, instant pattern recognition.

I used to work in a large nightclub in London. We hosted one of the largest gay nights on Sundays.
Without fail every week at least 100 punters would demand to see their coat from the cloakroom halfway through the night. They would look it over and hand it back.

They just wanted to check it was OK?

That's devotion.

so true all of these above !

When a bird walks into my walk in wardrobe and just goes 'oh my god'

when you have to double up 2 or three on shirts on your hangers

when your mates are always asking if your having a clear out so they can nab some stuff

Laughing out loud at that

ive only worn mibe out, once at a fashion show and once with my mates where we started in a really dodgy local which was all ben shermanators, i stuck out like a peado in a playground and my mates were giving me right shit. Was ok when i got to the safety of the nicer bars in town though.

Reminds me of a time when i went out for a mates birthday, joined them halfway down the mile (stretch of bars leading from the outskirts into town) I didnt know who was going and i wore dark grey skinneys, black tee and gold skytops, hair was abit wild too, walked in and it was full of the DLF (derby lunatiuc fringe) all out for my mates birthday, all hard as nals, giving me right shit, taking the piss big style. I felt like a right cunt, so gave em a bit of banter back, had a couple of lines with them and they were like best mates by the end of the night !

and also when you influence your old school mates so much with your fashion nuance, they even start dressing their pets in fancy garms.

My girlfriend told me my varsity looked "very Biker Grove" this morning. Don't even know what that means.

One time I was wearing that blue topman trench coat that a few people got and my mates called me Matrix.

And a lad in the pub asked me if I was Scottish cos I was wearing a checked shirt a few months ago.

You can't say anything back to stuff like that cos none of it really makes sense!

Hate it when parcels arrive at mine and people are here cos they wanna know what is is, want you to try it on and I'm just thinking "there's no point trying it on cos you need to see it within the context of a whole outfit". I never say that, obviously. I have to chuck it in my wardrobe, all the time waiting for them to leave to I can go and try it on Smiling
