    The thing that irritates me about enforcement of dress codes is that you can be in slight non-compliance and look much much better than most of the people who are in strict compliance.

    Yeh i really get that TC id much rather be wearing jeans t shirt and beat up nikes for that Black Tie Charity Function cos its a far better look IMO........

    You just dont get it my friend the dress code is there for a reason you may not agree so take your "much better look!" elsewhere....

    My club has been around for well over 100 years, why should some shit who (in his own head only) thinks he looks better be allowed to break years of tradition????

    Horses for courses my friend take your looking better to the catwalk

    Impossible, the clubs are used as canes and no old people can walk without those so an attempt at 5 iron attack would make the attacker fall before he got to me. I guess they could get into carts and engage in hot pursuit but since they don't see so well they'd probably drive into a ditch while I zigzagged on the field.

    I blame the geezer's comment on mild dementia.

    Its all about enforcement of dress codes and in this particular case the setting being a golf club ??? Is that right ???

    My point being if you know the dress code exsists why bother being a prick and breaking the code ?? Does it really matter if you "look better!" ?? Your breaking the code !!!!

    I know exactly what he meant and i am in total agreement with the statement but it just doesnt work when the code is there so whats the point ????

    This as we all know is rubbish as you cant "zigzag!" as firstly you wear those silly bespoke high heeled broguey things with scented patina or whatever you call it and secondly you are not in the slightest "sporty!" and couldnt outrun a fat lady trying to sing!!!!!!!!

    And thirdly what would you be doing in a "field!" (We call it a course but hey ho!) you plainly have far too tender a skin to be subjected to sunlight or god forbid some drizzle!!!

    Why have i got a picture of you as Niles Crane ?????[​IMG]

    Err, I believe you're mistaking me for someone else, must be the alzheimer talking. Oh and I have a terrific physical stature that allows me to emerge victorious when I fight old people, petite women and small children.

    People feel they need to inform me that I'm over dressed on certain occasions. I dont mind at all that an older fellow told someone that he needs to clean up his look for the golf course.

    strolling across the field for a bank holiday round of golf. some old geezer that i recognize as a club captain approach my group and although polite, asked my friend and bro. to tuck in their shirts!!! its the norm that i tuck but i still see it as a needless thing to demand from others. so my question is have you ever felt the urge, to correct someone else's clothing? is it wrong?
    Perhaps have the old man see this clip. Michael Douglas explains...
