Since I have started dressing in the PUG/Vintage style again I have noticed something: People treat me with more respect. Now, I do not mean to indicate that people were disrespecting me before. It's more that now people do little things that they didn't do before, like holding open the doors, bowing (weird at first, but I'm get used to it), and using honorifics (ma'am, Ms., etc).
I have also noticed that the compliments that I get are different. Rather than some cheesy lines like "hey ma" or "let me holla at you for a minute", guys now say "You look gorgeous" or "dignified". One guy even said he wished his daughter dressed more like me. To me, this is evidence that I am putting out the image that I want to.
How does everyone else feel? Opinions?
