post #16186 of 31073

Yeah what's with this MC vs. SW&D debate? When I first joined I thought the MC casual thread was about biker casual clothes or something (MC=motorcycle club), then I figured out there were two different sub-forums and apparently there is some kind of rivalry between them. Um, why? First off, why even have two separate forums? It's all just clothes. I mean I like to mix and match more casual/street wear and more formal stuff-- for example, once rocked a dark gray silk/wool Perry Ellis pinstripe suit with a white french cuff dress shirt, silver tie, a black Kangol, and my suit trousers tucked into combat boots-- if I were to discuss that kinda "mixed" look, which sub-forum would that belong in? It all seems like an unnecessarily confusing (and seemingly antagonistic) dichotomy to me.

SW&D and MC used to be one forum. At the time, the split made sense, as MC focused almost exclusively on tailored clothing. The MC shift toward casual is a subsequent development, and I agree that the current "competing casual" setup (and the resulting tension) is rather bizarre.

You'd fit in SW&D. That is if this is a serious question.

It is a serious question, and I do not care for your high-handed, and, more importantly, uninformative response.

Then wouldn't it have made more sense to create a "tailored only" subforum? After all, tailored is a relatively concrete definition, as opposed to "street wear" vs. "men's clothing"-- seems like given the practical overlap between formal, semi-formal, business casual, casual, and street wear, it should all be on one forum. I mean I know I'm a newbie and all, and not trying to dictate to people how to structure the forum, just expressing my frustration at a set up that makes absolutely no sense to me.

I hardly think that is high-handed and you may re-evaluate that definition over time. You asked a question in there and I answered it. What about that is uninformative?

My reply to you was held in moderation and I have no idea why (unlike last one no external links included).

post #16193 of 31073

Next question-- why are some of my posts being held in moderation? I can understand one that I posted on another thread which had a few external links-- making sure I'm not a spammer-- but not sure why the one I just posted was.

While I'm not a very experienced member myself and still plenty wet behind the ears, IMO once the trousers were tucked into the combat boots you crossed over into SW&D.

Anyone know if the Rose & Born blog has an RSS feed? I can't seem to find one. frown.gif http://roseborn.com/blog/

I don't have a black suit, and I am going to a funeral on Thursday. 

What should I wear? I know that in such event, one should not care so much about how you look,

but I don't want to look like a douche or dress wrong for this event.

Do you have any dark suit. Charcoal would work too. If not, a navy suit would work.
