As a rule of thumb, wear only one GTH/edgy/in-your-face/etc. item at a time. By wearing one such item at a time, there's a least a chance people will smile at you; more than one at a time, and they'll be laughing at you. So wear "boring" shirts and pants with those shoes. Like, chinos and blue OCBD wouldn't be at all out of place. And seriously consider not wearing the shoes and the matching belt together. 'Course, I could take a really traditionalist view, and suggest...
Because when an American visits foreign lands, looking and thinking like an American, he's being ignorantly provincial.But when a foreigner comes to America, looking and thinking like a foreigner, he's being intriguingly exotic.This derives from the - admittedly, mutually incompatible - beliefs held by many Americans, that our ways reflect a confidently youthful vigor which makes them far superior to those of other cultures. And that our ways are rather infantile when...
First, decide precisely what you mean by not sticking out like a sore thumb. Do you mean you don't want to look like an American? That you don't want to give offense by how you're dressed? Or what, exactly?Some years back, I spent several weeks in London, on business. My dress marked me, in some of my colleague's eyes, as a visiting American. The stripes on my tie ran the wrong way. I wore OCBD's to the office on occasion. I was even caught wearing a pair of Allen Edmonds...
You seem to be assuming the wedding will take place outdoors.
The fact that the wedding takes place in the winter, at the Ace, in Palm Springs, doesn't really tell us enough. The wedding may be sufficiently casual that jeans and t-shirt are appropriate, or sufficiently formal that a tuxedo would by required. I'll assume there was no mention of a dress code on the invitation, since a simple "Black Tie Preferred" or "Casual Attire" would settle the issue, nicely. Could you contact the bride, groom, member of the wedding party, etc.,...
Given the very low budget, seriously consider buying off of your local craigslist. Assuming you live somewhere with an active craigslist. Irons and ironing boards always seem to be listed there.
Give it a try, and feel free to report back to us on the quality of the job done. It's only $4. And that's $4 Canadian, so it's not even really $4. And it's unlikely they'll do any permanent damage to your shoes. Remember to tip.
The jacket shouldn't be removed, while you're out in public. Once you're back home, who cares if the white shirt looks weird?Yes, I get that some men will remove their suit jackets at parties. But they probably shouldn't, and I'm suggesting you not be one of those men.You were told "suit and tie." Although most of the time, unless there's good reason to think otherwise, simply being told by the boss to wear a suit would imply "and tie." But here, it was explicitly added.So...
In a post of mine from a few years ago, on another website, I offered the following links to a number of previous conversational threads on that site which had to do with choosing an iron. Clothes iron technology likely hasn't advanced with such speed as to render the information worthless just...
In the US, HDTV penetration stood at just over 80%, nearly 2 years ago. It's likely around 85%, now.The number's from a pretty widely quoted Leichtman Research Group study.'Course, the number does vary somewhat between places, and between demographic groups. For that matter, some groups may get very little of their news off the tv, and instead rely on, say, their cell phones.Still, pretty much anyone making a scheduled appearance on the national news can safely assume he's...
