modern dinner jacket
I have no clue what I'd look like in these, but the Earp family in the movie Tombstone are wearing frock coats most of the time, and they look great. I'm considering one for Winter.
Groucho Marx said it best:
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying all the wrong remedies.”
...which seemed perfect for his seedy, beetle-ish character.
I like many of thre old styles, so there isn't much I'd not wear, at least not without a try-on first.
I do know that I would never wear a boater in public. And as much as I like the way that bowlers look on others, I don't like way they look on me, so I would not wear one.
I would also not wear an ascot.
'There is a fine line between art and fondling.'
A dickie, an ascot, a homburg, a boater, a flat cap, sock garters, spats.... the list is long. I have owned & worn a derby but doubt I'll do it again.

I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these to other people and I require the same from them.
