1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

Is it ok to remove your jacket indoors when dining if you are also wearing braces?

    What's this got to do with anything? Braces on your teeth? [​IMG]

    one should stop reffering to himself in such a way as if he is writing an essay.

    I think (hope) he was just joking with the 'braces on your teeth' comment...

    IMO no. For dinner the jacket stays on.

    I don't think it is an option ever , braces or not.
    It just has to be extraordinary hot to justify taking off the jacket - but if it is so hot I'd probably expect the problem and would wear a belt. Braces and no jacket is simply a no-go.

    Huge 1+. Unless you are lending your jacket to a freezing woman, that jacket stays on regardless of what is underneth. And if you are wearing braces, the girl will simply have to freeze...[​IMG]

    My understanding is that one should not wear a jacket while sitting. Just like when one is walking around the jacket should always be closed and not hanging around...

    During dinners people will notice my scarlet red braces, but it is not allowed (etiquette) walking around and showing them. It is one of those pesky unwritten rules like not wearing button-down with a tie to work, etc.

    However people with a public function on the tv should wear their jacket sitting (Larry King and Jort Kelder look rediculous. [​IMG]

    Just my two eurocents...

    There is no rule that you must not wear a jacket while seated for a meal.

    In fact, many clubs have rules requiring that men keep jackets on...

    The real question is whether when wearing braces it is alright to remove one's jacket when on the commode.

    This is OK if you are an agricultural/animal husbandry worker.

    Sorry, no. Jacket ought not come off at dinner or when otherwise seated. You may be conflating the notion that one unbuttons a single breasted jacket when seated (but not a D/B). The wearing of braces is irrelevant to when one should wear the jacket. And, if it is likely to be so hot that taking off the jacket is a serious consideration, wear linen.

    unless it's at an outdoor cafe (or if you live in Alaska), I'd say off with the jacket [​IMG]

    Keep the jacket on, but despite suspended socks, feel free to lose the trousers:
