Hell yes. Have two and wear them a lot. (had a 3rd which I wore well past its usefulness and was loathe to let go)I have never (and I'm pushing 50) been invited to a black-tie event, and given my social circle, likely never will be.

Me either -- never was able to figure out what "season" I was supposed to be. When I was younger I worried about anything that might make my already pasty-white/blotchy red Irishness more florid. Now that I am older, maybe my skin is just greying or something, because I don't notice it anymore.I have blue eyes and white (used to be grey, but who am I kidding anymore) hair, if that helps explain my colouring any better.So I voted some awareness and concern because I used to...

I think there were upsets earlier in the round-robin, and the Chinese were trying to avoid having two of their own teams face one another in such a way that it would eliminate one of them from medal contention. I think the other teams were trying to arrange to play against teams they believed would be weaker, and only by losing could they make this happen given the previous upsets. These sorts of shenanigans would be easy to eliminate if they would get rid of the...
