I don't like the small fitting cutesy clothes that are made for women, these days. I prefer to wear anything that resembles anything that The Kinks wore in the 60s, in particular Mick. I'd rather that people guess my gender. The Kinks logo also flatters my Mickish facial features durring the hot Langley summers.

I also think that I might have this obsession with my looks, bordering on narcisism.

Hate tight. Hate riding up and falling down. Hate scratchy tags. Usually fine with washed cotton, linen; silk anxd woo,l next the skin are not fun. HATE certain kinds of fabric that feel like fine sandpaper - hate sandpaper and nailfiles and hearing someone file nails.

Happy unclothed but don't like to be seen; don't much care to be seen clothed.

Let's see...I'm wearing a sweatshirt that is not bothering me. Everything else is bothering me. Underwear, jeans, socks, and slipper boots; I'm uncomfortable right now in all of them. I wish to always be dressed in a way that is very attractive (to my boyfriend in case I see him) and very comfortable at the same time. I almost always fail on both counts. :evil:

Pulling on me, preventing my skin from breathing.

I hate clothing tags and wool. I don't like too slick, stretchy or tight clothes. My favorite fabric is 95% cotton 5% elastane - the perfect mix of feel & stretchiness.

I HATE wearing jeans. The waistbands and seams are thick and I can feel them and consequently think about the jeans I am wearing the whole time they're on me. I really just prefer to wear high-waisted skirts and tights. Especially the tights -- I get control tops for the pressure, not for looks.

It also takes me a long time to lay down to sleep... I have to straighten my t-shirt and fold down all the seams and pull the bottom down as far as it will go, then do similar adjustments with my pajama bottoms until everything is on perfectly and evenly.

I've tried sleeping wearing less, but I do like having the weight of clothing on me at night...

Ah, I can't stand to wear wool or anything that's both fitted AND made of polyester, silk, or similar smooth/shiny textures.

There is a lot of clothing I like, though! One of my favourite things has always been dressing up in fancy things, so my interests were consequently lead to gothic lolita and Victorian clothing. It just takes me awhile to get dressed, because every article of clothing has to be on straight with all of the seams lined up appropriately, hahahah... oh, how much time I waste...

Hate stockings, tags, tight clothes, scarves.

Like loose fitting sports jackets, jeans, band t-shirts, long coats.

Sometimes I will wear clothing that is a little uncomfortable. Today I'm wearing tight jeans....in the heat. I feel like death!

I hate overly tight/overly loose fits, bad seams - I like flat seams, huge tags, looking like a billboard. I also hate the feel of certain fabrics, rough denim, and a few others. I like the feel of imported Italian or Japanese denim - a plus if its 98/2 cotton/Lycra blend. I also like the fabric my workout clothes are made of - either a nylon/spandex/X-Static blend or luon which is 87/13 nylon/spandex blend with a matte finish. Of course regular spandex doesn't feel too bad, and I can stand most other fabrics, unless it feels like 36 grit sandpaper or it feels stiff.

Socks, I hate wearing socks, and to a lesser extent shoes. I actively like going barefoot and actively dislike wearing anything on my feet.

I'm really tiny, I find it hard to find clothes I like that also fit. Also sizes are never the same in different shops. I have to cut labels out of tops, can sometimes stand them in trousers. Don't wear a bra, it drives me nuts... lucky I've got nothing to put in one, eh? :lol: Don't like stiff fabrics, or anything too silky and not tight at all. I prefer clothes not to be constantly touching my skin, does that make sense? so being baggier means they do but it's not the same as when somethings tight and clinging to you... I only wear trouser, mostly combat type trousers as I'm not keen on jeans as they are mostly to stiff or thick material. I also can't stand anything around my waist, which always gives me problems buying clothes as I hate the extra material hanging between my legs too!, has to be low rise/hipster type trousers.

mainly only wear trainers but I have really low arches so fins a lot make my feet hurt. I tend to go for the DC/skater style. Sock seams can be irritating and underwear has to fit properly, not thongs, g strings or tiny micro pants here :lol:

Clothes sizes are widely inconsistent--I bring a tape measure when clothes shopping. Also, most of the stuff at the mall doesn't fit or has widely inappropriate styles for my age.

I don't care for synthetics, I prefer all cotton when I have to wear clothing. Around the house I'm usually just wearing my boxers. I cannot sleep with socks on.

Exception: in some of my jobs I was required to wear special protective gear. While working on tankers, I was certified to use a hazardous environment suit (think space suit) which had self contained life support including climate control. It was heavy, bulky and uncomfortable, but it was my own little safe zone... I wore it even in areas where it wasn't required because it also shielded me from the harsh realities of my job... I used the excuse that if there was a leak or fire, somone needed to save their butts! (After one of our crews suffocated in a fire, no one argued with my logic)
