The Collar Thread
« on: July 20, 2008, 08:44:59 am »
Hey I was wondering, what type of clothing would collars go under? Casual? or everyday things like a watch? I am thinking of getting one.

I wouldnt say that they were casual, coz not many people wear them, but i've seen a few goths/emo's wearing them, so you might get away with not looking to out of place.

If you are known for wearing things out of the ordinary, then you could pull off a collar. It all depends on your area's social norm and how they accept things that aren't socially common.

Well, all of my friends know I am a little strange sometimes  :P But I belive in free expression and I really don't care what  the "norm" is.  but I think I will try a collar and see how I like wearing it out in public and such.

chavs? Never heard of them.
well I live in MA and that's dangerous enough for me. Lol these drivers are crazy, so I attached a boat signal air horn to my bike. some guy got killed on the road where I live and where I bike around. The driver actually bragged about it to his friends. Then turned himself in cause the shops wouldn't fix his car. I think you need a Psyche test taken along with the driving test.

chavs?

It's a British police term (never heard it outside the UK put it that way) that means "Council Housed And Violent". But it's become generic for a certain type of person who generally isn't nice. They don't care for the law. And they'll take expect to anyone for no reason whatever.

I can understand his worries. I tend to wear my Collar as much as possible. I've worn it when I've been out by myself. I've never had any problems but then again I might just have been lucky. Just have to think about if where we're going is the "right" place to wear it if you know what I mean. I won't wear it if I think it'll cause problems.

I live near Duffman and our city is very dangerous, especially my neighborhood, there are drug addicts everywhere, police cars constantly turning up at front doors (often having to bash their way into a house), there are also stories rather frequently about people who have thrown themselves off the nearby block of flats, Swansea (especially sketty park) is a really rough place.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chavs

More or less. Stupid, mindless, idiots most of them . Hate everyone (emos, goths, other chavs) and are extremely violent if provoked. So dont take the Steve Irwin approach, and poke them with a stick, unless your looking for a fight :D

Sounds really dangerous. That Wikipedia definition reminds me of some of those kids over in Mansfield and stuff, driving around shooting people. Nothing as dangerous as your place sounds though, you guys be careful. I say instead of increasing police force budgets they should be increasing their school budgets, teach these kids something.

They choose to be like it lol. They always start fights and stuff, like in our fave night club, a load of chavs came in, to start a big fight (its an emo/goth club). They just abuse people, so its fair if you slug them in the mouth (:

I have a collar. I wear it occasionally, but not often. Mostly because I don't have a lot of clothes that go with it.

I dont wear  collar, but if i did i would get in trouble. its just the nature of my area. i cant see any real problem, coz you dont have any chavs near you. the max you'd get, i'd say, is a couple of snide remarks, and many odd looks :D.

I have one with my fursona's names on it (Orla and Ixis)



I wear it wherever and whenever. Some people comment on it, ask what the names mean and where I got it, I've have no negative reactions.
