If you have an ascot fetish, wear it in private, at a costume pary a wedding etc. fkg. etc.
Some rich older guy maybeeeeee
This may be different in other countries or certain events may lend themselves.
It looks pretty natty, but the world just will not get it.
If the Corleone thing is an ascot, I think I used to wear them maybe 10-15 years ago (not for business).
1) I believe to recall that I got laid once or twice. And I certainly don't get laid more often nowadays, in spite of my nice ties (I guess I should blame my wife).
2) I cannot recall beng ridiculed (I guess that people took care not to let me notice).
3) No dude ever kicked my ass.
I do not wear ascots nowadays and I agree that they may seem "affected", but I actually think they look nice. But, yes, maybe rather on elderly men (and yes, especially if they are rich; I am actually looking forward to wearing ascots again when I eventually manage to get rich; and I do believe that an ascot demands a nice sport car).
