A daytime wedding at the Jersey shore, and a weak moment at Brooks Bros. - this is the result . . .

Señor Crust, I would like this much more with a less saturated shirt. Otherwise, you go, girl!

I am confident in your ability to do what you think is best for your management of this thread. Out of curiosity, to help me learn how the society of this particular thread functions, if I had just said it looks bad (a common SF phrase), would you have deleted that as well? I recognize that true free speech is not allowed in this particular society, but must everything be positive? Feedback would be helpful via pm or on this thread. If this particular reply is deleted as well, I will not be able to learn the speech rules of this particular thread and your moderating of the discourse. Thank you!

If you had stuck to the clothes rather than the gender politics, I wouldn't have done anything.

Ok. So I can say that "This looks bad" without being deleted? I won't say "very bad" or "awful" as that would probably be borderline or crossing the line? Thank you!

That´s ridcoulous. You claim the free speech and on the other side you do not allow the lady to wear mans clothes. 

So you have to decide, where you want to live: In a free modern democracy or in system where it´s given what to wear and what not to wear.

I think that suit works very well with a pink shirt and a light blue tie.

A hot, but overcast, day in London

Thursday...

All kind of challenge related, one way or another.

TTO, all are great, as per usual. The third is simply brilliant. What a beautiful waistcoat.

 

But what is all that stuff hanging from your belt loop? Looks like keys on a length of string.

 

[edit: belt -> belt loop]

Don Cologne, 

 

You misunderstand me completely. How did I not allow a female to wear male clothing? I simply said she should not as it looks _____. Should not does not mean is not allowed to, let alone forbidden by law that is mandated by a force of actual power (we all have our little style laws that we only enforce on ourselves and try to get others to self impose don't we?). My deleted reply was in response to what this person posted. Did I fly to San Francisco and take her classic menswear away from her? Did I stand in front of her closet and hold her back? No and no. My statements were a perfect example of democratic free speech, even if you disagree with them. The particular individual could have responded very easily to my comments.

 

I have plenty of style rules, that have been posted on this site, and do you know what they are? My opinions/convictions discussed publicly. How is what I wrote earlier any different? My free speech was critical what the individual is wearing, that is true, but that is in part what this whole site is all about.

 

For example, there are things I could say about your clothing (nice, expensive looking, and quite a large number of items), as well as the fit (____). Likewise, there are things you could say about my clothing (whatever it is, it is not as nice, expensive looking, or significant in number), and that the fit is ____ (too tight etc). Our posts about each other could get more personal, i.e. you should do this and this to look better. All free speech.

 

I recognize this person's ability and willingness to dress like a man, which is an act of personal freedom of expression/freedom of speech, but so is my criticism (too harsh many would say) of her ability and willingness to do so.

 

So freedom of speech involves both the act of free speech/expression, as well as a response to such act or speech. What am I missing here sir? Likewise, if I posted a picture of me as a male dressed up as a woman on this site as an act of free speech, I would expect some comments back, including some or many negative ones. Free speech is two sided, as you said yourself. Do you understand?

Perhaps LA Guy and emptym will agree with you. It certainly was a judgment call on my part. But as I suggested earlier, you can further explore the issue here:

Also, please remember that the right to free speech protects you from the government. That's all.

 

As far as your initial comments:

 

They were not about her clothing. They were about the fact that a woman was wearing men's clothing. And you described that as grotesque. Now. If you have further issue, take it up in Transparent Moderation.
