    Are flat brimmed hats a greater sign of immaturity than judging someone by their attire or no?

    I'm not sure about that, but capitalizing the word "man" in the same sentence as the word "crying" is code for "Fabulous". Either that or gearhead is really, really into Barbara Streisand.

    Shit, I've seen so many styles come and go and I don't really give a shit who wears what. I wear what I put on in the morning and it has no puffy coat or a flat brimmed hat to it.

    And I did get out today. Three casts and a lost set-up to the bottom. I said to hell with it and went for a drive instead. I lost 4 bucks in flies. Sob

    I have no idea what the hell you guys are talking about. I feel like I'm in an episode of The Twilight Zone! And I broke my glasses.

    If you're on the water and are more worried about what other guys are wearing than the fish you should be catching, I do believe your priorities are out of whack.

    Really? People care about how fly fishers dress? I guess I'd better stow the puffy jacket and "Indiana Jones" hat. The hat did a great job keeping the sun off and the jacket has kept me warm all winter. I guess I'll freeze and get skin cancer just to please the bashers, right?

    Given his (mis)use of punctuation and capitalization I don't think you can draw any conclusions from those 'sentences'

    If I was to worry about the the way people look I would never have met some of my best friends.

    But your pants won't bulk up when you're putting your waders on... Does anyone know if Carhartt makes skinny jeans?

    It wasn't until I got to the bottom of page two that I happened to look down over my laptop at the coffee table....

    I'm still not quite sure about the stereotype being discussed here.

    Will someone please post pictures of the fluffy and flat things? I don't live in a hip Seattle neighborhood so I need some help here.
