    Does anyone know of a similar event focused on conservative business dress?

    I think he answered your question with a question.

    Would that be considered a rhetorical question?

    Kasper, I'm not trying to be an ass, but what the fuck are you talking about? How is "conservative business dress" not included as a part of showing and talking about shirts, suits, shoes, and ties? Do you want to go somewhere where they only only have swatches of navy and grey suiting and only show white or blue shirts?

    Oh, doggone it. And here I thought you were just mocking an aging shirtmaker. Whew!

    Well, best of luck in your search. Let me know where the event is. I know a conservative or two who could use some business dress. Make sure to invite Steve B. [​IMG]

    I believe many if not all of the photos were taken on Saturday, when a proportion of odd jackets would be expected. Suits are worn on Friday.

    The gentleman in the checked coat with the yellow striped knit tie looks great.

    Is this event just held in a hotel room? How many people attended last year? Doesn't seem like a very large event from the pictures.

    Is it a suite? Perhaps, it's the penthouse this year.

    Sorry but I made my inquiry based on the photos of what the people were wearing. You really don't need to use curse words to get my attention and I wouldn't consider disrespecting you with such language. To me those words are like wearing one of those trout ties to the workplace as it lowers your taste level in much of the same way.

    Oops. I stand corrected.
