Reading over the archives, I notice a lot of people come here for information on rules about dress for interviews (mainly) and formal wear. My father was a mostly typical boomer, if slightly on the conservative side. I learnt some things from him about how to polish my shoes, some basic dress etiquette and what-not but I never learnt about the fineries of Black Tie. I was never taught about what to wear to an interview, how to style a pocket square, to leave the bottom button undone and countless other rules. I'm wondering if these are all things that are normally handed down from father to son. To me they all seem like things that would be, essentially, "how to be a man". As I mentioned above, a lot of people come here to ask about interview and formal attire. Is it the case that many others didn't receive this knowledge from their fathers as well? Has it come to be that the internet is now teaching us in their place? Did the filtering of knowledge down through the generations stop at the hippie rebellion? Internet, are you my father?! Jokes aside, I'd like some input on these thoughts. Cheers.
