    I have had this happen several times in New York. It has always just been due to somebody's drunkenness and not culturally related.

    About two months ago I walked into a bar and this drunk took a swing at me immediately almost falling off of his chair while screaming "Asians!" Now, I am not Asian and I don't think I look close to being Asian, but I guess to a drunkard I must.

    Consider starting a thread devoted to this.

    I am 100% serious.

    Cheers,

    Edit: Holdfast's 'wide boy' thread, for example, dealt with a very specific cultural instance of the topic you're raising.

    I've come to the recent conclusion that I want to lengthen the sleeves on several of my jackets for this very reason.

    Clags: I feel ya. Even if you weren't in Korea, there's no question that what others perceive of you is important. I, fortunately, get a pass because I tell people I make suits for a living, so they don't think I'm self-important or whatever, but few have such a good excuse for overdressing.

    I have very few excuses past "I'm a weird guy".
