Well here we are! One of my favourite subjects. Where have all the Gentlemen or 'Chaps' gone? When I returned to Scotland and went into my local town centre, I was struck by the number of young folks wearing trainers and 'trackie' bottoms - I thought
"boy everyone must be superfit here and be members of a gym!".....how wrong could I be. This was everyday dress uniform. Not a pair of brogues in sight, not a tie to be seen, never a hat to be doffed.
The only hats worn were American Baseball caps and
they were mostly on wrong way round vis back to front... And as with American culture never taken off even indoors and certainly never 'doffed' in the presence of a lady!..alas regardless of the situation they remained firmly in place.
now time that us men acted like men again and dressed to that end, suiting our apparel to our function. Keep trainers for training. Let men be men again and let's bring back the age of respect and romance!
