Ding Ding Ding! You made a stunning observation. The main forum focuses on traditional styles of dress, so it should be no surprise that a beautiful, gray worsted three piece with a powder blue shirt is going to receive more praise than an LV advertisement featuring Pharrell decked out in gold and fur. Lumping Pharrell, Kanye, and OB into the same group is a poor generalization--Kanye is an ass without much fashion sense other than what stylists provide, Pharrell does the media-star/playboy look well, and OB caught a lot of flack in the past for his (loose) association with Savile Row. Richard James has provoked similar ire for his Slovakian made garments and "Savile Row" label, but I guess no one threw a fit because he isn't black. [/OUOTE]Im guessing you're (another) lawyer. I always thought an appropriate legal dress should be as unobtrusive as possible, especially if a jury is involved. I don't think it's a "poor generalization" at all. These 3 men seem to draw the ire of many posters for simply dressing in the manner in which they want. These 3 men put their own definition on fashion. And, yes they are all Black. Besides these 3 men being Black many posters on this board seem to take their criticisms of these men to a personal level. How can you say Kanye is an ass? Do you know him? C'mon that's weak. Some other posters were saying that OB is smug because he was driving his Bentley on his TV show. Another criticism that has nothing to do with the man's business, his clothes. I'm sure that no other poster said disparaging things about Richard James on a personal level. If so please correct me. If you all just criticized the clothing tastes of Kanye, Puffy, OB, Pharrell, etc, I would have no problem but many posters want to throw up cultural stereotypes and personal attacks. And that's why I think many of these "critiques" are racist. Oh, I dress how I feel. And, it depends on where the jury trial is located and the racial makeup of the jury.
