>"Why are you all dressed up Anon? Going somewhere important?"
I was wearing a tattered pair of jeans, Clarks Wallabies, and a stained OBDC shirt when somebody said that to me.
I literally looked like shit, and probably smelled the part too, when somebody asked if I was "dressing up". I stumbled back home from a party the night before.
This guy was a roommate of mine, randomly chosen by the management. He wasn't exactly a NEET, but if he wasn't employed by the local Wal-Mart he would've been. The guy was a mess--fat, slovenly, and smelly--and he thought my unkempt state was "classy".

The 21st century is literally the worst time to be alive if you give half a shit about fashion. Even the barbarians who sacked Rome cared more about how they looked than most people do today

I work at a tax office where the dress code is smart casual and nobody has ever complained about me wearing jeans even though i wear black skinny jeans every day. I am however the youngest there by like twenty years so maybe the middle aged failures don't know what skinny jeans are.
Some hood black dude asked me this exact question, exactly in those terms once.
I answered that i don't need a reason to dress well.
He laughed and agreed and now he's calling me Mr.Versace.
>why are you dressed like that? you sell dope?

I had to go buy some drinks from the gas station one time with my friends. When I was leaving I was completely torn between which sports coat to wear out, debating on the colors and matching with my apparel I already had on.
> why do you care anon? It's just a gas station!
The whole premise of the thread is people asking why others are dressed up when they're wearing things like button downs, not when they are actually are dressed up like in a sport coat. I'd have to side with your friends in that situation.
Maybe I should have clarified that I work at a law office and I had wound down for the day. I was only wearing a white undershirt (one of the damn near see through t-shirts) and slacks. There was no way I was going out in only that. At least I didn't put my tie and entire suit back on.
Dude, you can wear a button down if you dress it down with sneakers or add a hat. It's the le minimal basic bitches who are afraid to stand out who wear docs, black jeans, an oxford, and a pullover who look silly. It's like they want to go to goth prep school. Now if they had black nbs on to dress it down and add some dorkiness to that edge it could work.
I ended up putting this on over it. With the t-shirt under it, it didn't look AWFUL taking into account I wasn't a v-neck, but i definitely could have done better. What do you think? Right choice? I have a about 15 similar coats and suit jackets. I could have just done something funny any worn the blue pinstriped seersucker.
