    Because I don't particularly enjoy being an engineer.

    Because I'm never compelled by others to dress up, so it becomes a way to take a break from normal attire. Just like if your job forced you to wear a fast food polo and khaki shorts (as mine did this summer), I'd bet you'd enjoy a bit more donning a collared shirt and blazer without anyone telling you to do so

    And as I mentioned previously, I plan on becoming a space lawyer. (0)

    Also, I'll be opening my own cryogenics lab, any early investors can shoot me a PM (2)

    Fuck the accusatory stares! Wear what you want, whenever you want. It´s just a tie man. Let me give you an example: I teach english for a living, and all my students are adults who work for different companies (mostly oil companies, so they are all big fans of the jean shirt + jeans + obligatory steel toe boots or shoes combo). So, whenever I show up to class in a shirt, a blazer and a tie, or just a blazer and a tie, or if I wear fancy sneakers, I get some comments from the guys. It´s mostly jokes and It´s all in good fun, but even if they stared at me or people would look at me funny, I wouldn´t care one bit. And even though I´m a teacher, the atmosphere in my institute is very relaxed, and since I´m a young guy (mid 20s) it´s like people don´t expect me to dress in anything other than jeans and a tee, which I do a lot of the time, but sometimes I like to wear whatever the hell I´m in the mood of wearing that day. That´s probably one of the downsides of living in a not very "fashion forward" city, no matter how douchey that sounds. I kid you not, it´s a fucking sea of sweatpants out there [​IMG]

    Look I ALMOST never wear a tie and I'm not a fan, I like the open collar look. At funerals and marriages you wear a tie, your President (who is not very elegant like most pols..) would wear a fucking tie to a funeral, if that matters. When you do your own dying you can change the rules.

    Did anyone buy the other Raf sweaters this season? I liked the white and navy fair isle / snowflake one. But never saw it in my size.

    Just trying to show it's not all about pastel silk paisleys or plain black skinny ties.

    There's lots of fun to be had: knit ties, cashmere ties, camel hair, linen, pleated, embellished, etc. They come in denim or leather if you're more out there, and I've even seen ceramic bowties I thought were pretty neat.

    Surely just about anyone can find one to like somewhere. Even reedobandito, here.
