To echo a few of the recent posts from others, people have become used to cheap clothing.

I've taught college classes. The undergrads who show up in sport coats are almost always members of the College Republicans, or asshole Libertarians who can't wait to interject some Ayn Rand philosophy into a class discussion.

(sorry to any Libertarians who may be reading this, but you're easy to spot in classrooms)

A conservative is a liberal who wants an excuse to wear coat and tie.

They wonder why the older generation won't trust them to manage real money yet the older guard continues to expand business, sadly even my office manager only sports a tie twice a week at best.

Myself I enjoy the ritual of suit/coat, shirt, tie, belt and shoes but as others have said it's going the way of the dodo.


The forums were built on posts like this.

I mean that in the worst possible way.

The traditional business suit has been in decline for years. Personally, I have a lot of trouble with this because I think the suit is one of the easiest things to wear when it involves work. Just to blend in I have started wearing navy jackets and trousers when it comes to professional situations, or any dressy situation, really. Interestingly, there was a recent thread concerning casualizing the suit. I like this premise but I think in the United States it's not going to work. Why? Because a suit is seen as a formal piece of clothing. This suit is becoming the tux, and the odd jacket is becoming the suit.

I'm sure everyone already got the email, but in case there are some who haven't, ASW has been relaunched. I think parts of the archive are still due to go up, but there are also some new posts by Hanger Project Era contributors. Worth a look:

Shame all the RJman articles aren't there. Guess those have been lost forever

Gwarg: you can still see the old ASW through snippets on the Archive.org -site. If the old forwarding code is still in effect, though, you will have to take screen shots before it activates and directs you away from the blog to the store. Such a bore, but RJ stuff can be read through this way...or you could just ask for the original texts from RJman himself.

Ugh. Those Rubinacci squares are awesome.

I picked up a bunch of great deals due to the sale. The socks are some of the best made anywhere and I especially like the D.R. Harris fragrances.
