When you step out into modern society, assuming you don't just step into a StyleForum meet-up every day (and never step into public society in between from your home to that meet up), you probably see everyone around you dressed in a range of clothing. Whether it's a mix of aesthetics or just your general Gap kind of clothing, what do you assume about those people? That they're all criminals?But that does not equate with the belief that slovenliness or the refusal to differentiate apparel depending on the occasion or wearing vulgar apparel are evidence of laziness or solecism or even rudeness.
When you step onto public transit and see nurses, doctors, graduate students, construction workers, laborers, tech workers, and whatever else, do you just assume they're all bad people? How do you look upon your own family members who are probably not wearing three-piece suits every day? (By family I mean your actual family, not your StyFo family)
I genuinely don't care about coarseness in behavior, to be honest. I find that stuff to be mostly classist nonsense. You can have coarse manners and still be a kind, compassionate, and sincere person. You can also be a very refined person and be a selfish dickhead.Coarseness of one kind begets coarseness of other kinds. Veneer is less important than underlying substance but it is not entirely unimportant.
