When it comes to fashion, I really have no idea what I'm doing and my body's so weirdly shaped that finding standard clothes that fit me like a normal person is a pain in the butt. So I generally don't invest much money in my fashion choices and try to keep things as simple as possible.
And I think that I'm really afforded that luxury because of my sex. Dudes can get away with a lot more when it comes to fashion (or a lack thereof) than women. Everytime I go to a wedding with my wife and her family, or I'm sitting at a table with other women, I hear them talking about other people's outfits and sizing up their own against theirs.
Now some may chalk it up to "girls being girls", but I don't buy that crap for a second. It's a large-scale social problem and I'm not sure it's ever going to be changed. I mean when Heidi Klum rescued her son and nanny from drowning, The Daily Mail made the focus of the story on a nip-slip and not the heroic act of saving two people's lives.
