Thousands of homecoming and prom stories shared and questions aswered since 2005.
There are plenty of males in this world that have a singular sense of style, namely wash and wear. Like it or not, style and guys are two things that definitely donâ€™t mix. It isnâ€™t that guys are generally ugly per se. It just so happens that in general, guys tend to dress ugly.
Big question now is, just how ugly is ugly? Thereâ€™s a thin line between ugly and standard, and then itâ€™s a quantum leap to the good-looking bunch of males, and of course youâ€™d want to go to the prom with one from the good-looking group. So the biggest asset you could hope to have in getting one of them hotties is to know the exact opposite â€“ guys from the ugly bunch.
Guys who canâ€™t handle going out on dates will most definitely end up wearing something like the photos, and weâ€™ve got some really bad specimens here. Note the powder blue tuxedo, and the smiling young lad both look like something that wandered out of a dye shop with a bit too much on the material. This is a classic example of how an otherwise normal looking boy can end up being the dork of the town with a bad choice of wardrobe.
The problems with rented material can lead to even worse situations when dealing with people coming from a culturally rich background. Scottish guys can look great in homemade kilts, but rented kilts can really end up looking rather dismal; and like the example of the great Colonel Sandersâ€™ â€“ of KFC fame â€“ son, Bob Sanders, arriving at a prom looking like you just fixed up a bathrobe to look like a coat can spell stupid in many, many ways.
And letâ€™s not get started with bad hair. Itâ€™s a given that guys donâ€™t normally wear long hair, but some kids tend to sport the â€˜do, most of the time ending up with something called the â€œdonâ€™t.â€ Anybody sporting something that looks like a mix between a birdâ€™s nest and an ornamental plant is an instant flop, while somebody who decided to grow his hair just so that he can shave letters into the back of his head shouldnâ€™t be touched with a ten-foot pole.
Good thing the girl didn't go blind with that glossy glare in front of her.
In this case, grey fails to impress.
Powder blue and prom don't match. Enough said.
