Actually, Manton, I was not aiming my comment directly at you. I was continuing the thought from the post I quoted, which is why I used the same names he/she did. If you'll read the second part of my statement more closely, I do address the "acceptable" portion of the original question when I talked about how others receive one's clothing...I just furthered it by stating that there is a difference between being aware of how clothing affects others and dressing to one's own tastes. "For the reacord, Teacher, the original question which started this whole business was not 'Do black suits look good?' but 'Are black suits considered appropriate for business?'" -- manton Are you referring to the previous "black suit" thread? I don't remember, and you're probably right if that's what you mean. Seanandnik, however, said nothing about business; in fact, he specified that it's a casual suit and wondered if it's appropriate for an upcoming wedding. That's why I said nothing about business. I also avoided addressing the wedding question because others had done so in a way that I could add nothing of my own to that discussion. In a later thread he said somthing about going out to clubs...that's where the bulk of my concentration lay.
