    Um, I wear jeans 365, unless someone gets married or dies.  So, while perfectly acceptable, I would probably better dressed than you are to win "The Amazing Race."

    Well, I'm sure the majority of the forum thinks I dress poorly. I stay away from 'old man' cuts like Brioni, Kiton, etc. And I would not be caught dead in English Shoes.

    Ummm... I hope the flight is only like 20 min, cause it seems like you'd be a bit uncomfortable.

    I like to wear linen when flying, or something else comfortable like oxford shirts and old jeans.

    I'm less worried about comfort, but I'm more worried that some people on the flight may think we have come out from a mental asylum, or on the other hand, are models straight off the runway

    Will do, it's about 4 am here, we leave for the airport in a couple of hours, so I will do it once we get changed.

    yup with you on that - the most comfortable thing I can find for flying. Dont really care how I look while aboard or while waiting at the baggage carousel. I basically hate cargo pants on general principle, but have to say, they are great for flying - soft, comfortable and lots of large pockets so Im never that guy at the front of the queue holding everyone up while rummaging through his bag for the ticket/passport/whatever-he-didnt-think-he-would-need at the gate.

    I didn't say anything, but that was my thought since the introduction page, and it's references to a villa in Dubai....

    How can you wear a tie and french cuffs with a crewneck sweater, unless of course you fold the cuffs over the sweater's sleeves looking like a total jackass ? tie + crewneck [​IMG] .luc
