    I fancy myself a 'scientist/practitioner' and typically wear suits to work. However, the norm is probably more casual, i.e., shirt & tie, blazer & slacks, etc.

    Just a statement, from which, I am not way advocating the participation of any respected and or established SF guys/gals.
    I love this website, it is a gold mind for those that are truly obsessed with fashion.
    I probably could have chosen my words better.

    I work in the Financial Industry within Private Banking Investments. I wear a suit everyday to work because hell, when you are dealing with 10+ million in investments for clients, it's a must to look superb. This isn't petty cash, yet rather the most important asset to these investors.

    Yes and no. Clearly, clothing is a uiversal human need, and better clothing can satisfy other wants (e.g. aesthetic, emotional, social) in addition to its immediate practical purpose. All of this is irrational, but is probably relatively harmless if kept within reason (e.g. does not consume material resources and time better spent on other activities/causes).

    While some lip service to frugality is occasionally paid on SF, I am personally growing increasingly jaded. Our society and the world is so riddled with problems, that the extent of time and money wasted on clothing automatically makes most SF-ers (myself included) turbo-douches. I.e. it is not a matter of whether you can "afford it" at all, but a matter of how could you possibly justify that against the backdrop of over-abundant ills. Grownass men should be devoting their energies and talents to something better than prancing around in overpriced stuff.

    Thus, in some sense, the absolute amount of clothing expenditures does also become a measure of douchbagery. If so, Vox is the ultimate douchebag, and you all should be ashamed for sheepishly bowing to this cocksucking poster child of the oligarchy.:fu:

    I would love a job where I would have to wear a suit every day!

    The gay porn industry uses a lot of butt doubles I would assume.

    Quite the contrary. Gay porn stars pride themselves on performing their own stunts.

    The mixing of metaphors alone borders on surreal.

    Interesting how you know how the members here devote their energies and talents. I don't pretend to. It's a clothing forum, clothing is, among other things, our hobby. We talk about clothing here. Do not presume someone is or is not doing their share to cure the ills of the world because he is not wearing sack cloth and ashes.
    I'm guessing you are Catholic. I was born with that affliction as well.

    i think you would most love a job where you could wear a suit every day without looking odd, but not have to. to me thats the best of both worlds.
