Help a socialist dress - Page 2
There is no dress code per-se, although I'm expecting most people will be wearing suits and I don't actually want to offend. I was perhaps thinking of wearing a sport coat of some sort, dark blue cords and a light purple OCBD. But would a sportcoat actually be more leftist than a suit? Any ideas? Since it's a month from now, I still have time to place an order with my tailor, so feel free to suggest anything I might buy(no Mao suits).
Wear a Mao suit, and be done with it.
A Socialist with a sense of irony? Or is it ignorance?
Your avatar is of Salvador Dali, almost alone in the Spanish
Arts community in his de facto support of Franco's Fascists in the Spanish
Civil War and the regime that followed.
I know, I do like the man's art and the way he dressed, not so much his opinions, but he was crazy anyway, so I take it in good humor.
It was a long time ago... today, it's costume.
....sober dark colour and nothing fashion forward. Plain white shirt. Suggest a plain red tie as well, no dimple and no pocket square either, as they might be considered bourgeoisie.

That's completely off-topic, but: consumer behaviour doesn't drive political change. Political action drives political change.
Back on topic: if you want to show that you support "local labour", that's cool, just make sure that you know what you're buying, and that you don't end up supporting just a particular segment of the local labour - the one catering to the needs of capitalist fat cats.
