For cxsackie - some inspiration on where to wear that getup:Mods I think we can lock this thread now...
I had planned to go to Derby Day this year, and assembled a very traditional outfit for it. However, at some point I said to myself "as a matter of fact, I have no interest at all in actually attending Spring Racing Carnival events, but I do like the clothes".
So I dressed up and dragged the wife out to do a quick photoshoot.
I guess I'll probably never get to wear this outfit, anywhere, ever. A bit too dressy for weddings (and besides I never get invited to weddings any more, only funerals); and AFAIK the only institution which still insists on morning dress for men is the VRC, and that's only on Derby Day.
Maybe next year. But I have to somehow get excited about horses first.
To the office (working with children check optional)
To Lygon St
Taking a piss in the woods
To a speed dating event
Someone else’s wedding
...Though of course he should bear in mind that morning dress is simply not formal enough to get a holly jolly mocha and wearing anything less than white tie would result in your balls being stuffed in your mouth and your body being discovered on the outskirts of Tijuana by polica federal.
