That just sets a suit apart from the rest of the rat-race. Ironic really that I say that, as I was looking at a photo of the RAT PACK today, and was thinking, how sharp those guys looked in their suits, dark ties and straight hankies in the top pocket! As I dashed through Newcastle City centre (in the UK), I was the only guy I saw who had a jacket and hankie and even a shirt tucked into my belted trousers. Everyone else seemed to wear jeans (many with rips) and shirts hanging out over them. Is this really the slob society that so many of our former generations fought for..? or..is this a sign of me getting older, more crotchedy, less open minded, more formal..? I really hope not. I honestly try to keep an open mind on things and strive to live and let live. But generally speaking, there does seem to be a real slob culture developing in the UK and I dare say it is reflected in other western countries and cultures.
Maybe I do need to get my head out of the sand guys! When recently speaking with a friend in the US, I was talking about if ever I got across, staying in some nice little hometown villages and going to some little country churches painted in white and made from wood, ...etc, and I was told that my image of the US died many years ago, and villages disappeared after the Civil War, if not the post Revolution years! "wake up PADDY RUMPLESTILSKIN, you've been asleep for over 200 years!" LoL..!!!
