Fast fashion is the second largest cause of climate change. Perhaps boys/men and indeed girls/women should stop being so keen to follow some latest fashion, which is just a way to try to get people to spend more money on clothes than is needed. Look how two years ago people became so keen to have trousers three inches too short, or how 'Love Island' swimwear is suddenly so important for a holiday.

I don’t agree with fast fashion either, I don’t think I buy clothes that often and I don’t throw away stuff awfully quick either.

Supremely unimportant, IMO. I've owned the same ~10 articles of clothing for many years.

Also what clothes should I add to my wardrobe, cos right now it’s not the most out there thing. It’s mostly Fleeces, hoodies, jeans, joggers and trainers.

I think this pandemic has resulted in people caring less about clothes, which is a good thing IMO. People who judge others on their clothes are shallow.

So if the boy wore dirty clothes/ not presentable clothes to dates etc, it’ll be unimportant then?

I mean, there's fashion and then there's basic hygiene. I'm not opposed to replacing clothes when they're completely worn out, and obviously if your clothes are dirty, you should wash them.

If I was on a date and my date decided against me because my clothes didn't look brand new, then good riddance.

Alright, so, if the boy decided to wear something you didn’t particularly like, so like a tracksuit to a date, still wouldn’t matter?

It depends on the context and your age.
Appearance, personal hygiene and choice of clothes will all play a part in a stranger's first impressions of you.
As a person- in terms of your personality, priorities and lifestyle preferences.
Looking your best and aiming to give reasonably positive first impressions can be very important when it comes to things like employment & dating.

I wouldn't dislike a tracksuit on a date; in fact it's hard to think of any kind of clothing that would bother me, obviously excluding over-revealing clothes, offensive slogans, Nazi armbands, etc... I guess what I'm saying is, it's hard to be too casual in my eyes.

I think it depends what you like and want to be. Clothing can be an extension of your character onto something

If you're asking for a girls perspective, chances are she will very quickly see through you putting on some kind of fashion sense that isn't genuine or makes you less uncomfortable - that won't help you

I personally like wearing basic clothing that is atleast a little complimentary since I appreciate nicely dressed people, male, female, young, old because I'm physically minded and generally like objects that present some beauty and sense of life

You don't need to care about much about clothing (and if so it will probably benefit you)

Fair play to these answers. Personally, two things come to mind. Firstly, wearing nice clothes (not necessarily fast fashion items) and presenting well is an interest of mine, so if a prospective date were to not care about how they present I'd consider that a misalignment of interests. If you're not into that then it's fine, but if you are, all the better. Same as any other hobby.

Secondly, as I consider that style and beauty are linked and that beauty transcends into the objective, "looking good" will only work in your favour. Objective beauty standards will die very hard indeed, despite the constant shift down in dress codes since the early 20th century, with notable developments even in my lifetime (I'm 30).

I think its fairly important, it is a way of self expression and is the first thing other people will always notice about you.
Depends on the person though, looking good and dressing well matters to some people more than others. Its not a requirement to care about what your wearing, really no point in wasting money and time trying to sort out a 'style' if you couldnt care less.

I think Covid is the main reason to wear the fewer clothes, otherwise, everymen or women should wear the different types of Brands to showcase the personality and dresses.
