Do you ever tone down your steez?

I was going through WAYWT thread, and realized that even some ensembles, while undeniably steezy, could be considered by many to be over the top or too contrived.

So, my question for you stylish bastards is: "Do you ever tone down your look for certain occasions ( job interviews, lower SES areas)?"

Yes. I am typically much more 'normal' looking at work, but with nice understated shoes and good fitting pants/shirts. I still look like a lady-killer, but no one could say it's over the top.


otherwise, I dress how I want.

It would be blasphemy for me to wear 70% of my wardrobe around my grandparents. So yes, I do tone down the steez.

Yeah, around extended family or if need be for work. My grandmother gets scared when I wear too much black.

No, I even dress up before I collect the mail or take out the trash. This is the only life I know.
