A quick fashion quiz

ted | Uncategorized | Thursday, March 12th, 2009

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.


  1. Hi! It’s me again. Knowing that I have nothing better to do than to read your random comments must say a lot about my life these days. No…I actually have plenty to do I just choose not to right now. For some reason I find all of this very interesting. And just FYI….I personally own TWO big puffy jackets (one white/one black) and I am most definitely NOT a douchebag.
