Lose the SC. Lose the PS. Lose the sunglasses (how can you see your cellphone screen)
and... boys with handbags... dont know where this is all headed personally. Brief case yes, but handbag no.... I don't think so!! Definitely not cool for boys to wear handbags.

Hand bag or a bag for something else? Around here when shopping stores put bought items in a bag or more.

I've seen this done at banks such as the Bank of N. T. Butterfield & Son Limited. They have offices in the Bahamas, Barbados, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and of course Bermuda. And yes, this look could expand to include other locations where temperature and humidity run high.

As you note, times change and dress changes with it. The look of today's business garb is quite different from what it was when I was a boy. It has been forever changing over the years and in recent times that change has occurred at an ever faster clip. This is not to say that every change is for the better, but one would think that in today's fast-paced world -- where the new is sometimes 'old' even before its introduction -- that change would be less intimidating. Sadly some (and I'm thinking especially of those who respond rudely) will forever cling tightly to what they know as a safe haven -- a security blanket of sorts -- as change for them seems frightening on some level. I suppose that due to human insecurities and a limited exposure to the greater world, there will always be those who want desperately to remain tightly locked within their small microcosm of familiarit with it's rather limited horizon.

Now, as to shorts ... we do have cloth today that isn't as heavy as it was in times past. We have materials that are more 'breathable.' From that point of view, shorts are less necessary than they might have been in past years. Still, when done correctly, it's a great look.

Damn, Now why did you go bring politics into this. No dear, politics and sexualtiy are not the same thing, Ok

Oh, and... did you mean Nazi, rather stick to words you know about can spell,

The unknown is fraught (look that one up, yes that means google it to you) with danger for the unwashed masses.

Oh, come on, darling. Crass homophobia is so 90s.

Welcome to the horrible new world where men can dress like dandies without even worrying a tiny bit if they might be mistaken for queer.

SF and the Blackberry Bold don't mix well as the screen is too small to see what you are typing.

However, I'm glad that you can get caught up on a pointless fat finger and miss the point that if he chooses to have a different lifestyle than the one you project to the public you see a problem with it. Being that you are from South Africa, I'm surprised that you don't express your "concerns" with his other attributes. Perhaps it was thinly veiled in your sexual orientation comment.

Then it's even less likely our paths will cross anyplace but here on the Internet.

It's not that I really get lost, it's that I fall asleep on the plane and when I wake up I find that we've landed at Farnborough. FAB to insiders.

In a parallel universe maybe the shorts and blazer look for men can work in a corporate setting.

Yes, but as with anything those who matter are the one's who know as a result of their daily life and not from reading a list.
