These images came across my Flipboard feed today from what senior member dopey calls the "blogosphere":

Gray flannels, a bottle of champaign, and a Playboy.

Ah, those days way before my time were the days, weren't they?

I used to type forum messages in the same formal English I'd write correspondence (I do have the odd occasion to handwrite a letter) or academic work with. However, developing a reputation for stilted "elitist" language on many forums is seldom beneficial. Now, I should have taken account of the "striver" undercurrents here and written accordingly. Oh well. C'est fait! Now, I'm off to my twice-weekly supper at Blenheim. With that username, I hope you'd appreciate the reference.

I agree. Now someone needs to tell that to the Trad forum on Ask Andy.
PhiPsi32: I appreciate your effort to write a "real" answer. No, I'm not concerned with flight attire. I was merely relaying an amusing anecdote that fired some neurons/synapses.

I usually end up playing the "straight man" on the forum.  I'm used to it.

I was just discussing some rather beautiful trousers in an e-mail/PM exchange. Although this thread was not the reason for the exchange ... I'm thinking a more sophisticated/adult verson of the outfits in the OP's photo:

I'm already looking for something similar for this summer.

And if you happen to be traveling by air and in first class on an international trip as per a reference in said same OP, being sockless will make it easier to slip into the airline's courtesy slippers. Donning the courtesy pajamas (althouth they more often look like sweats to me) will, however, still require a trip to the lavatory unless you are either very bold or adept at changing under the courtesy blanket.

From Wikipedia (Ecchi = H):
Quote:
Ecchi (エッチ) is an often used slang term in the Japanese language for erotic fantasy and sexual innuendoes. As an adjective it is used with the meaning of "dirty", "naughty", "frivolous"; as a verb (ecchi suru), with the meaning to do something dirty, naughty, frivolous or to sleep together; or as a noun, to describe someone that is seen as ecchi. It's a synonym for ero (from Eros) and does not have such a harsh meaning as hentai.

...

Its current meaning is still closely related to the word ‘hentai’.

Harvard men must be big in Japan.
