Weather in London and weather in San Francisco. Quite obviously, both places get a lot cooler, London more than SF, but that's missing the point. After a certain point, cold is cold. And I say this as someone who has spent significant amounts of time in both cities.

Why do people care what other people wear? Do you look down on people who can't afford expensive clothing? Also, you do realize some people simply don't obsess over fashion as much as you do.

I am here to inform that the pub closed down.

I stopped patronizing his business shortly after this thread began.

He seems to always wear shorts and crummy looking tshirts with some sneakers. He fashions some facial hair in a style I do not care to describe.


I cannot bring myself to patronize this pub any longer. He completely shatters the imagined idyllic English style I and many other Americans hold so dearly in the back of our minds whenever we wear the vestiges of fine English sartorial accomplishments.


Should I tell him that he should dress better or risk losing more customers?


I will forward him a link to this thread if I get the desired responses. Thank You.



Yes, because everyone in England wears a bowler hat and full three piece suit, even when working in factories.


Don't forget the black umbrella and brown leather briefcase as well. Some of my students think that's what all Englishmen wear, and they all go to work on red "London Transport" double-decker buses. Mind you they also think that all Americans wear baseball caps, t-shirts, jeans, sneakers and eat nothing but hamburgers, hot dogs and french fries.

Sure the reasons why the pub closed wasn't anything to with the publican not wearing a suit and tie. Probably more like he was serving stale beer, competition from Wetherspoons, smoking ban, too many police raids, etc. Was the former hostelry owned by a pubco?

I've known many pubs closed-down in the UK, non of them was anything to do with the landlord's choice of attire. It's usually becauser they can no longer make them viable, due to changing circumstances, local competition or local demographics.

I defy you to find any English publican who dresses smartly.

Luckily I am still in Uni, pints are cheap.

Some chain pub offer a pint for less than 2 pounds, it is not uncommon in outside London areas.
