i've done the 'popping' thing (never heard of that term before) and it all depends on the shirt I'm wearing...it might look better that way so i'll wear it like that. sometimes shirts look extremely stupid if the collars are folded down conventionally.

i must be a 'douchebag' but a part-time one at that.


oh look, everyone is agreeing.

I agree ewen it depends on the shirt.

But alot of polos you just look plain fucking geeky with the collar down. And damn straight, I think people are jealous because they don't necessarily have the bottle to pull it off like us.

This was popular at least 2-3 years ago when I was in undergrad and I've always hated it. And still have to deal with on it my new campus now which is predominantly undergrads

to judge someone on how they dress is elitist. i remember hearing Bono on an Irish talk show back in 1989 (lol, the 80s!) having a go at an audience member who had raised the question about how U2 fans dress or were having a go at him for how he dressed.

paraphrasing Bono:

"I don't think U2 fans would be laughing at you for how you dress, I think you were probably laughing at them. it's elitist"

Why do people pop them? Is it for protection from vampires? To keep their necks warm? If so, why not just where a turtleneck.

There are simple rules in life:

Don't put ice in beer
Don't piss in the wind
Don't pop your collar

...and why do people not just dress in the dark or bother looking in the mirror before they go out?

what a silly question.

maybe they raise the collar on a particular shirt because that particular shirt probably looks better with the collar up!

duh.


why are so many people around here preoccupied by how other people dress or look? what is it? i don't get it.

Show me a shirt that looks better with a collar up, I will give you $100. I don't think it is scientifically, metaphysically, or humanly possible for this to be the case.

What?! Do you tuck your shirt in your underwear too? Who made up this rule? You...

There are no rules when it comes to clothes, wear them when and where you have to...that's it.

Ok, maybe the whole popped collar thing is an example of a bigger problem I have with the Bobby Trendy type people. The people who seek to be doing something simply for the sake of being cool. Examples - popped collars, lance armstrong bracelets (i know many people wear them for the cause, but many do not), trucker hats.

It's the people that have no real identity about themselves other than seeking out what is "cool" at the given moment. The people that if you look below the surface, there is absolutely nothing there. I know this may come across as offensive or irratating to some people, but it is the way I feel.

to each his own. But if I ever did that, I'd want to punch myself in the face.

Doesn't offend me because I don't do it to be trendy. It is just one thing I prefer, I see no one else around me wearing pull overs or flares like I do. No one at all.
