Hey you chaps...

Do you still wear suits or a jacket with trousers?

I remember the days when gents unbuttoned their jackets to sit down and fastened them when they stood up.

And, before sitting they pulled their trousers up at the knees (Why do that BTW? Surely the knee would still show 'kneebaggies' only lower down from the knee).

Do gents still do the 'buttons' or the 'knees' .... even if jeans are worn?

I think it's to avoid 'pinching' anything higher up in the male terrain.

Is it? I always thought it was to stop the knees being baggy

I love to see blokes looking smart casual, not vomit look smart, but nice look smart, subtle difference.
Rarely do I see it though as I rarely go anywhere now.

Every time I watch Foyles War I think wouldn't it be nice if people still dressed like that. Style.

Perhaps I'm wrong and it is ... I must look in different places than you.

And then there's braces.

My dad used to wear braces. Never see them anymore.
