I'm Aidan and I'm from New York. I don't think I have a bad attitude about it, but other people are welcome to their opinions (and my opinions of their opinions, which I endeavor to keep to myself.)
I've been a lurker on the forum for a few years, and joined in anticipation of adding to the "state of black tie" thread tomorrow evening after a party for a squash tournament.
I'm mostly a button-down and jeans kind of guy because of my job, though I wear my shell cordovan oxfords anyway because I am obsessed with them. I hate 98% of modern clothes because they don't fit my waist or legs, and almost all shoes since I was blessed with paddles instead of normally-shaped feet.
