Before you deny or try and act cool, admit that we, fashion guys are quite pretentious. We make cheap look expensive, bullshit look cool, wrong look right and all because we think we can run away with anything. Reality check? Some of us end up looking like 'WTF?'. But whatever they may say, we enjoy being in fashion and use it as our wrecking ball. Since Fashion Week's around the corner and we're trying too hard (once again), here's a check-list you should be ticking on, before you that FW plunge! P.S. I'm guilty of all.1. Mr. Body Flaws
Check If: You've opted for 'summer layering' at least for one day.
Because: You could appear lanky, but you actually aren't. So you better hide those flaws!2. Mr. White Lies
Check If: You've trained your flea market buys to always say ZARA.
Because: Isn't ZARA the most convenient?
Check If: You've brought out hideous outfits, thinking they'll cause BIG FASHION STATEMENTS.
Because: Aren't trashy things the most popular?

Check If: You've chosen to wear B&W.
Because: Of course you can't experiment or are pretending to be fashionably minimal (is it because you're broke?).5. Mr. Where To Score?
Check If: You've brought out those rad shades, to hide stoned eyes.
Because: Scoring 'high' on fashion needs to be taken literally.6. Mr. Why Should I Even Try
Check If: You've worn bathroom slippers, because Normcore is now your official excuse.
Because: Why spend? When you can wear utter crap to Bend It Like A Fashionista.
Check If: You've told yourself to be around the biggies, always.
Because: The shutterbugs would be all around them, right?8. Mr. Social Standing
Check If: You know you have to sit one row lower than where you're supposed to.
Because: There's nothing better than pretending to be a Magazine Editor at FW.
Check If: 'I think we've met earlier' is your go-to statement, because making contacts will then become super-easy for you.
Because: You're fresh in the industry and sleeping around isn't doing anything for you.10. Mr. Sports Meets Lazy
Check If: In the name of Athleisure, you're wearing sneakers everyday.
Because: You aren't, weren't and can never be original.
