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 to mention the Queen comes around for cucumber sandwiches and tea every Sunday afternoon .... better go, there's a knock at the door
