Why are you so dressed up? - Page 7

Not unless they pony up. Just saying.

I get this all the time at the office and when I dont even try to dress up!

Normal work days they say Im all dressed up because I wear a tie.

Casual fridays I get asked for wearing a shirt - even when I wear jeans and shirt untuckedand top button undone.

That said its all from the fellas sent here from the Phillipines whose concept of formal is any top with buttons and a collar and short sleeves and untucked perfectly acceptable in formal situations.

That gallery tells you everything you need to know about the well dressed in baltimore. I think i'd rather see tees and jeans.

Considering that is from The Sun I am not shocked. The quality level of anything related to that paper is bottom of the barrel. There are plenty of people in Baltimore that can dress well, I just didn't happen to see them featured in that slide show.

For obvious reasons, doggie bags are banned.

Thus, the spare volume within a topper is a wiley stratagem. This is why many a magician dines there before the full fruits of Vegas fame.

I have a picture of myself somewhere in my tails and top hat. I will have to find and post it (or take a new one) one of these days, just to show that Tibor is not the only member crazy enough to wear them in public.

I love the style of this one.

+1 The only time I encounter this is when I am in the States. I usually just reply, "This is how I dress," but surprisingly many people will persist with a comment like, "but why?" Sometimes I don't know if they are trying ridicule and be rude, or are just genuinely curious.

My standard answer to the question:

"BECAUSE YOU TOUCH YOURSELF AT NIGHT!"

If I had a dollar for everytime I heard this in a given week I could go to the mall for a mini shopping spree lol. it is a shame that things are so casual now. there are days that I have on just a nice shirt and slacks and all of the sudden people think i'm off to a wedding or something. It makes me sick really.

If you're being asked this question a lot you are either in the wrong business or wrong town, possibly both.

definitely I get the "whoa are you going for an interview" and why are you dressed up on a Friday? when I have jeans with a button shirt and maybe a sport coat. I do work in a lab so I guess people are surprised.

I seem to get it every few weeks. Even though our office has a dress code that requires shirt and tie for the men, people tend to comment on my attire more than others.

i got it a lot when i first started dressing nicer at work, then it tapers down and stops.

if you keep getting asked, may i suggest you are over dressing?

Most people on this board I think agree with what I said above because it's very plain and obvious. So now you need to apply that same logic and imagine the same situation except you are wearing a suit to run your errands. The people who are asking you "Why so dressed up?" see that guy in the tuxedo. For the people here who love wearing suits, that's a hard MF fact a life, but that's a fact of life your ass is gonna have to get realistic about.

I was meeting with a friend at a local coffee shop bar, so I could get a ride to a 1920's themed New Year Party. Most people at the New Years Party were dressed in a similar way.
