Stop wearing suits you twats
wear one then
on the way back on the train
there were four suit wearing, laptop wielding teenagers
i can't fathom what they were up to
other than playing dress-up
The more 'product' they have in their hair, the worse they are.
but I agree that young blokes in suits just don't look right. They either look like they are off to work experience or a young enterprise conference.
or being a tall skinny fucker is what makes a suit look bad.
And it IS what makes a suit look bad. There should be alternative dress for the likes of us. You need a bit of meat on you to fill out a suit.
careful in choosing one. It doesn't help if you have shoulders like a milk bottle
My shoulders are fairly square. I don't think it helps. Probably my suits don't really fit.
Such a tricky line to walk to wear a suit. James Bond is, like, the only person who can wear a suit. In fact, anyone who isn't James Bond who wears a suit looks like a numpty in one at some point.
James Bond and Tom Waits.
Being tall and skinny can make a suit look good. Anyway it's all about the thing actually fitting correctly regardless of your size.
I always feel like I'm 14 and wearing one of Dad's, on my way to work experience. Unfortunately, most Young Men are the same but have no self-awareness. If I wear a suit it has to be tailored mercilessly.
stupid working cunts. They should get a proper job in new media or PR. Or sit at home all day blogging.
A nicley fitting Suit can look brilliant. A badly fitting suit will always look shit.
A bit of effort goes a long way.
bobby grindrod or something? he does it well.
i've only worn a suit about three times and each time i've looked alright, but a bit like a used cars salesman.
I sometimes just wear pyjamas. Embarassing.
bit weird, but it does get you used to wearing one, so that you don't feel massively uncomfortable when you go to uni interviews etc.
it was lame
It was a grammar school, though. And it wasn't strictly suits - it was meant to be anything but denim for trousers, and any kind of jacket + shirt + school tie (+ optional jumper) combination. This pretty much limited everyone to three categories:
1) £40 washable suit from M&S
2) Looking like a used-car salesman in some kind of attempt at individuality gone wrong (usually involving pinstripes).
3) Looking like a character in a Woody Allen film.
I had so many corduroy trousers, it was ridiculous.
Suits are fantastic.
Funny thing about age-based zing attempts: in a few years time, you will be my age. You're basically also zinging your future self.
And my brain will have dribbled away so I probs won't care.
Assuming you live longest.
<3 grandad fashion.
Being old, if I make it, will RULE.
I am going to order heavy cotton trousers from the back of the newspaper and take up smoking again.
woo! I like you better like this. We could be best friends.
It would end in tears.
as someone who needs to wear a suit to work everyday, and has now been told to dress down for the next couple of days due to the G20 protests, and are feeling scared just simply because of the job they do, this is a really ignorant response.
a top hat and tails tomorrow like Monopoly Man. EVEN THOUGH I DON'T WORK IN THE FINANCIAL SECTOR.
But I'll probably just wear my normal suit.
When I get dressed for work tomorrow I'm wearing a double-brested suit, a monocle, cane w/oversized diamond knob, and some ninja stars. First stop: Moorgate THE BLOODENING
I AM THE CHANNEL
But why on earth are you scared?
the latest feed on the BBC is that the protestors have broken into the RBS building.
i'm v glad that i don't work in the city - the wharf is completely calm at the moment
One of our principles is to dress smartly.
I still hate wearing one. On dress down days I wear jeans and a Pig Destroyer Hoodie. This causes a few comments because I'm on Senior Management.
Which surprised me. They told me there are only two ground rules to working at the BBC:
- you must have a TV license
- you must never have sex on BBC grounds
