I am not a man who knows much about fashion and I care even less about it. I have a set of about five pairs of various color Dickies and about seven plaid shirts, all of which I mix & match freely for regular work wear. Weekends find me in jeans, a t-shirt and Chuck Taylors most days. On any given day you would mistake me for a vagrant, an engineer (the Dickies and plaid shirts are basically the non-elderly engineer’s uniform, which I’m totally comfortable with) or a mechanic. So I freely admit that I don’t know much about fashion, but I do know this:
Do you often do any of the following, singularly or in combination:
- Wear any single Harley-Davidson brand clothing or accessory?
- Wear non-fancy all-black outfits?
- Own more than one big puffy jacket?
- Walk around with your untied Timberland-style boot laces flopping around?
- Wear sunglasses indoors?
If you answered “yes” to any of these, then you might dress like a douchebag.
But I can also unequivocally say the following: If you ever walk around in public with a bluetooth headset in your ear while you’re not on the phone, then you most definitely are a douchebag.
