My standard work wardrobe consists of black
or midnight blue medium weight shirts, a heavy black leather belt I’ve worn for
14 years, black straight cut jeans, and various Doc Martens.
My weekend wear consists of v-neck (shallow
V) sweaters or untucked linen shirts, leather belt, jeans or slim cargo pants,
and Doc Martens.
Depending on climate, I have a variety of
leather jackets and aviator shades.
And whatever situation I’m in, on me I
always have a multitool, a pocket knife, a flashlight, my watch, a lighter
wrapped in duct tape, and my phone.
Basically I dress the way I imagine a
character in a Tom Clancy book would dress. I bet you can’t imagine Jack Ryan
or John Clark in a polo shirt, retro sneakers, and celana 3/4 kan? There you
That I have personal values that are mine
and mine alone.
That I do what I want to do, and I live how
I want to live.
That I do not find it necessary to justify
my actions or preferences to anyone else.
That is what makes me feel manly.
Hmm. I’m not fluent on the subject, as I’m not the type who approaches women.. especially in public places. But hey, with enough vodkas under my belt and a few lingering glances, I’ve been known to strategise a method of approach which basically consists of asking “Hi.. namanya siapa?”
Though the other way around, where women approach *me* in bars… I’ve heard the line “sering kesini?” more than a few times. It’s an open-ended question that can lead to others things, which is all good.
(Bear in mind this only happened many years
ago… years of more hair and less belly.)
But.. if your question was more towards
“I see someone I know at the bar, and would like to ask him out”,
then just approach him and say hello. Once contact details are exchanged,
personally I prefer doing the “asking out” not on the spot but some
other time. Like via chat. Why? Because I prefer making it VERY easy for that
person to say no.
“Ngga rame ah.”
“Yang jahat yang mana?”
“Ah males, ada padi2 gitu di sampulnya.”
“I’m into french new wave cinema.”
