It's ugly and annoying seeing American men wearing baggy pants, those annoying graphic tees, etc.
Wear slim-fit and try to be fashionable! Nobody asks you to buy brand-name expensive clothing
In this past, American men would have had a next to impossible time finding slim fit clothes. They simply did not sell them. Luckily, times have changed and retailers are finally offering slim fit/tailored fit/athletic fit, etc.

Do they dress in materials that are not natural, such as neither cotton nor wool?

Over the years, my choice of materials has turned to natural weave, mostly because of training against materials which are a bad idea to wear if there is a fire. Not always, mind you, but most of the time.

In another topic, there was talk about how flying use to be so formal. With a recent event that has reminded me of clothing materials, it got me to thinking if it were possible, reasonable in price, to be formal today in relation to fire concerns.

I'm sure one can eventually do it if they are willing to pay the price....but is it possible to do so without spending so much Dinero?

Does dressing nicely mean that one has to give up safety?
