AGJiffy's Wall Street Indiviudally Modified Conservative Business Dress Week Threak - Page 17

post #241 of 293
I didn't get any answer to one of my questions. Is security guard chique acceptable on WS? Is it considered as conservative as charcoal suit or will it result in pay reduction?

International soccer is amazing. National teams playing for their country rather than for some billionaire club owner. Rushed home in the heat and humidity to catch Germany game last night and rumpled my Friday Challenge suit severely. I think I'm giving up on fit pics. Too hard to get right.

Oh, soccer. That's why I haven't heard about it.

No, I think he was talking about football.

Will likley supplant football (the trogladytic American version) in a generation or two.

 

The players all dress like lounge lizards after the game, though. That or they wear Zegna Sport.

Caustic only speaks Murrican - the concept of "football" as it's played outside of the USA is totally foreign to him.

I've been hearing that for 20 years. Every time the World Cup comes along the story is always about how at some undetermined time in the future Americans will really get into soccer. Then after it's all over no one cares anymore. The problem as I see it is that Americans have no real soccer culture of their own. Every time I see American soccer fans they are always acting just like British people. You know, the scarves the chants, etc. The sport will only really get popular in this country if Americans ever decide to actually create something of their own with it.

On the contrary, my father is a Mexican national and forced me to watch that insufferable bore of a game on far too many occasions.

You obviously didn't hear the slurring of my words due to the fact that my tongue was firmly planted in my cheek. satisfied.gif

America rarely creates something of it's own. America takes things other people have started and makes it 50 times bigger, sometimes better, and certainly louder while completely refusing to acknowledge anything that happened before their interest...

 

I say all of this as an American soccer fan and there is a lot of truth in what you say about the Anglophile nature of American fans. The Premier League is obviously the most relatable to the US market as the announcers speak English and there is the "tradition" of the game there. Things are moving along though. I live in Cincinnati where the new minor league soccer team here is averaging 20,000 fans a game. Progress, eh?

Exactly! Anyway, math is math. Fewer and fewer parents are letting their sons play football from what I read. The concussion danger is too great. A little wishful thinking surely, but soccer is creeping up fast.

 

Anyway, back to modified CBD. I was angling to be a daily "fit pic" contributor but am waving off. I end up wearing fairly conservative stuff and act out on one item only per day. Suit, shirt, tie or maybe a PS can be plaid, loud stripe, funky pattern, etc.  but everything else ends up conservative. In winter I will wear plaid overcoats and loud scarves but nothing too unique. Tweed sport coats when I can get away with it.

 

I'm curious to know how much prep and/or spousal assistance goes into the pics for the serious posters? There are only so many hours in the day. Thinking of @Claghorn  @Andy57 @upr_crust  @DiplomaticTies

Anyway, US 2- 1 ECU. USA! USA! USA!

Ecuador has a soccer team?

Perfectly acceptable. Pretty much anything in conservative colours is acceptable. Khakis on Fridays only, but grey or navy chinos can fly under the radar the rest of the week. Brown shoes of any variety are OK in NY, black leather shoes of any variety in London, except for casual Friday's again, when anything goes.

It's not rocket science, and definitely not suit science.
