What's cool to wear off the bike?

At work we can wear whatever, so I usually don't dress up all that much, but earlier this week I ran out of clothes, so I wore slacks and a reasonably nice shirt. Four or five people asked me why I was dressed up, so I think I'm going to start dressing up a bit.

What's cool to wear?

I was / am a fan of the Converse All-star (not giving up my current pairs until they wear out) . Then I found these guys they make an exact copy (down to the same tread pattern on the sole) only theirs is 100% union made and not in a sweat shop. Oh, one more thing, the logo is different

At my job, its supposed to between casual and business casual, I usually wear a nice pair of jeans or khakis and a button up shirt or golf shirt. Sadly, I'm usually overdressed compared to everyone else, but at least all the VP's know who I am!

I hear shoelaces are out, unless you want to be brutally shunned by society. They'll probably make a comeback someday, but until then I refuse to be caught with laces in my shoes.

Clothes usually keep you warm. If you want to be cool off the bike, you have to get nekkid.

That shirt better come with a "happy ending" $195 for a Polo shirt?

Never mind that I hate polo shirts in the first place.

Since I escaped Catholic school, I've never worn a shirt or blouse with a collar.

Wear your team kit complete with road shoes and tell them "no I did not forget my clothes, these breathe exceptionally well" when they ask.
