    Any colors, pretty much! I'm amazed that all of you guys can narrow it down to just a few colors. The only colors I don't wear are 1) highlighter colors, 2) pastels, or 3) yellow. (I just don't look good in yellow. I've tried!)

    I used to wear a lot of brights (and I still do, kinda), but I've been leaning slightly away from that recently because they don't look as good against my skin tone as other colors do. But I really don't decide what clothes I get based on color, primarily. Because there are so few colors I actively dislike, I don't even need to think about color most of the time. I focus more on print, texture, and fit.

    Not STJ colors -- work attire colors. Conservative businessperson colors. Regardless of type, people will respect you more if you dress older, and older guys just don't wear pink (most of the time)! Professional men's attire is very limited, color-wise.

    p.s. Since when is dark green not a respectable color??

    Most dark colors are fine by me. I don't wear many/if any bright colors. I gravitate towards blues and grays.

    it is, so is darker purple, but as a younger person I want to look conservative and older than I am because I'm tired of having to verbally bitch slap old men and women who think they can talk down to me. dark purple and dark green are respectable, but I want to give the impression of "I'm here to be productive, not socialize. if you have or need important information, please be prompt" obviously I've been doing a good job, because I haven't needed to in over a year, but before, I had this problem of older people being very condescending with me. I wear dark purple, dark green and even pink in casual encounters, but if I'm dealing with any kind of formal encounter, I want to dress in the most powerful, unapproachable way possible. respect take priority about relatability in all my relationship

    Excellent. Seal of approval! I love it when guys wear creative clothes. If I were a guy, I would without a doubt push those traditional color boundaries, on a regular basis.

    p.s. What item of clothing was it?

    That, sir, is intense. I mean, whatever you need to do -- but in my case, I am so glad that I've never had to do anything like that. When I get talked down to (which is rarely), I usually gain respect by speaking directly and on the level of the people who were talking down to me -- and surprising them enough by doing that, that they immediately treat me respectfully (or at least as something small and impressive, instead of just something small). I almost always end up citing credentials -- e.g. if I have personal experience with what we're talking about, or if I learned about the subject in school (which means bringing up the fairly impressive college that I currently attend). Usually I don't emphasize that with people, but in cases like that, it's a subtle way to remind them that I am not inferior to them.

    Edit: But for the sake of full disclosure, I'm also an only child, and someone who has socialized with more adults than kids throughout the course of her life, so I'm pretty good at talking to adults on their level. Which is why the only times when people are condescending to me, is when they look down upon my gender, not my age.

    I've gotten a lot better at that myself this past year. the clothes are a good insurance policy though. I really had to learn to hold back initially from Te bitch slapping them, since even before I knew what it was, the sight of a conflict was like "yes! verbally sparring time!". with most old people though, if you're legitimately confident, ask them slightly interrogative questions inquiring into their condescending comment and don't let them phase you, they tend to leave you alone. secretly though, I often hope they won't so I can use the Te bitch slap on them

    Everything except yellow and patterns. I don't do patterns.

    The most prevalent color in my wardrobe is blue. It's the safest color.

    Colors on the darker spectrum typically, though usually not black (unless it's like a graphic T-shirt or something). Mostly dark blues and purples. Occasionally a few lighter or more vibrant colors but never anything obnoxious or that would stand out. I'm almost certain I would never, ever choose to buy and wear a shirt that was yellow, pink, orange, or (light) green.
