    Basically, if you can pull them off, are they stylish? Or are you simply a poser by wearing them?

    Still stylish, not wannabe trendy yet.

    I've wanted a pair for a while and I'm going to buy some. Any suggestions? There are so many styles.

    Am I basically safe with a white since they go with everything? Blue looks nice too...

    Meh, to me they're not a "bad style", but aren't "stylish" if that makes sense. They don't look horrible, but they're worn almost exclusively by yachting WASP fratboy faggots that will wear them with shorts that end 2 inches above their knees, a baggy tucked-in polo shirt, and bad sunglasses worn on the back of their heads. Ballcap optional

    Your call.

    I wouldn't be caught dead in them, but mostly because of connotations. you have options.

    I wear them. Who gives a fuck what others think, as long as you like them.

    I wear them because I like the connotation associated with people that wear them.

    I find Sperrys quite Fratastic. Most fits I've seen with Sperrys look fairly douchebag, save a few I've seen on TSL, but I find them to be average frat boy attire (this coming from a former frat boy).

    I've tried them on multiple times, can't pull myself to like them.

    Ive tried them on multiple times, owned a pair I never wore, and keep thinking about getting another pair but can't do it. I think they look good on other people though
