Yeah, but you're a stuffy old turd.

There is too much rigidity in old fashioned dos and dont's. Circumstances dictate.

Well said, sir! I couldn't agree more.

Ok great. I will take my coat off at the job. Follow up question is it too tacky to hang the coat up and cover it (with say plastic like from the cleaners, etc.)?

In a closet perhaps?

I'm in a pretty modern designed studio office space so no closet by me. I'm almost wondering do I need to leave a hanger at work and in my car from now on? I'll put on my jacket when I leave the office for lunch but when I get in my car I wish it was off again (I live in Southern California so it's warm all year here). Makes me almost think what's the point!

In warm weather, the jacket is decorative, not functional. If I were you, I'd probably just leave a blazer/jacket for those times when a jacket is needed (client meeting, etc.) instead of carrying it back and forth without really wearing it.

When I'm at work I'm always wearing my jacket, but I'm always standing. As for dinner you just put a bib over your neck and nothing will happen to the jacket.

Or you can just use utensils and make sure you take your bites of food over the plate. And also try to avoid food that has a tendency to roll - such as peas, meatballs, etc.

Common sense must be a foreign concept to me.

everyone at the office i used to work in hung up their jacket at work. this was a business formal environment.

there are certain restaurants that require jackets-on.

however, i largely agree with some members' sentiments that oftentimes, rules are what the mass creates through their actions...

Funny its in Boston. When I was In Boston the people that were wearing suits all looked like low level politicans. Not to mention their shoes were many times penny loafers or plain oxfoards. A very stylish shoes for that city. Well any city nowadays that quality would be rarely seen.
