I was thinking more of the seasonal black tie social events. I have been seeing fewer of those (but as poorsod notes, that doesn't mean there are fewer of them, only that I am invited to fewer).

While this one was not, in my memory, black tie, a few years ago suits would have been the...
You are probably right so I have to blame my declining social relevance.
I've been wearing this a lot lately. p.s. Someone explain to me how you get those good watch pictures on an iphone.
