Your personal style, if applicable

totally random post. If you had to describe or explain your own "personal" style or look what would it be? this is personal, not photographically. If I had to describe myself I'd have to say more on the darkly romantic side, think mixes of gothic, victorian, vintage. I'm def not a flashy or in your face kinda person, I do not follow current trends not even in music. And although my perchant for things is not fashion forward or standing out whatsoever because frankly, I don't care what others think or like the quirkiness does make my style stand out a bit.

I'm about as style-less as you could find - checked shirt, jeans, boots and maybe a wax jacket if it's raining, and my hair clipped to #1 or #2 - that pretty much sums up my "style offensive" (closest I can think of is looking a bit like a farmer but without owning a farm :lol). I guess I must blend into the background, and that's how I like it In my business days I used to make a proper effort to dress well for work - good suits, double-cuff shirts with cutaway collars, leather-soled shoes and subtle neck-ties - because it was appropriate and expected. Those days are, thankfully, behind me, but out of habit I still wear a good watch and carry a decent pen I like all kinds of music with the possible exception of most (but not all) opera, and my romantic side disappeared in the not too distant past.

I'd make quite a lonely hearts advertisement if I actually *was* a lonely heart

I'd give up my pants before I'd give up my watches

I like to think of myself as an ageing old rotund hipster, now there's an image not to dwell on too long.

I have no idea what other folk think, nor do I care too much.

I always used to be very sociable, and my working life involved a lot of business-socialising. These days, I really value my solitude. I do meet up with friends - a few - for dinners and drinks, and to see the occasional band playing. And, when I take holidays, I invariably meet people and make new friends... but otherwise, I *love* being on my own

Yes, but spreadsheet take the joy of life :v , i really love the black humor, the satire and sarcasm, doble meaning and such (not the plain obscene, just to be clear) but sum that with a personality that in a party (if it go) he doenst care too much for find company or start the conversation... people usually think im bored or that im boring.

Its just a way some people see me, but i dont care too much as im not feel depressive as may people can think, i feel very energic.

I like my beard trimmed and my dress comfortable.....farm pants and farm hat with some well worn farm boots....but I'm not a farmer.




I like my women just a little on the trashy side....but don't mention that to Mrs Rupert...a very sophisticated lady!

I have been referred to as a "Rupert Type"....so I guess that about sums it up!


Regards!

Conservative.
My hair is short; I wear slacks/Dockers and button-down shirts. I don't own any jeans, shorts, or t-shirts. No beard or mustache; I shave every day.

It might have to do with differences between genders?
