What I Am Wearing

If I could wear a 3-piece or double breasted suit everyday for the rest of my life, I just might consider it. And it’s not that I couldn’t, because it is simply just a matter of doing so, but in today’s world there are many events/situations that really don’t call for it. In the sense, that if I was to do so, I may be considerably overdressed in many situations. But then, I watch shows such as Boardwalk Empire, and it seems that back then they did not go anywhere or do anything without being in an elegant suit. And even though I am very grateful and happy to be from the era that I am, I always wish that we still dressed as such. There was a manner of elegance that was spread across society and even criminals were dapper Dons. But in today’s world, if you showed up in a 3-piece suit to watch the football game (whether it be the American or European version), you just might get told off. What a pity…..
