Nope, no man bun. I cut my long hair back in about 92 and never looked back. My old 2-60 a/c pickup truck blew it around and made a whip effect that stung my face...enough was enough!Abraham wrote:Do any of you who're sincerely interested in being gun fashion conscious wear a man-bun?
Are one of the few men you know who has has a degree in "Women Studies"?
Proud to know how to knit?
Constantly put lotion on your dry elbows and think the temperature wherever you go is set to low and need to wear a sweater even in the Texas summer?
Weeeeellll, my friend, go get that operation you've only dreamed of, hand in your man card and give your gun to your Mother who really understands you...
No pedicures. I don't like anyone messing with my feet. I occasionally get a manicure...it's the best way to "clean up" for a board meeting or special occasion when my hands are beat up from a backyard engine swap.
I don't have a degree in "Women's Studies" but I was raised by a woman who ran a $1M+ annual sales force in the Beauty industry. So yes, I understand color coordination, and can pick out good colors for anyone's skin tone (and I can make good makeup and accessory suggestions).
I don't know how to knit. But I can sew a button on my shirt, hem a pair of pants, and generally make "survival repairs." I can also sew up a cow or a dog if the need arises.
I'm as comfortable driving around in my Cowboy Cadillac as I am in my '72 RoadRunner, or my disposable '05 Aveo.
I don't need a sweater in the Texas heat. But sometimes a concealment vest seems appropriate...
And yes, I do sometimes change guns/holsters/accessories based on the overall look. I just don't like the way my utilitarian Glock rig looks when I wear it with my Hickey Freeman suit...the 1911 looks so much more proper--even if it's concealed.
My mother doesn't really understand me though. She told me a few years ago that she wanted to make sure I was always independent and didn't "need" anyone...but that she thinks she may have let it go too far :)
All funning around aside, I don't think matching your carry gear is strictly necessary, but there's sure nothing wrong with it. And the original question made me realize that I actually do so--I just never gave it too terribly much thought.
