Nicely pressed stone washed jeans? Jeans with holes in the knee or rear? Sagging? All can be nicely pressed. If other people were there wearing jeans why would you be singled out? There must have been something different about you versus the other casually dressed people assuming you were not wearing some nicely pressed crazy looking jeans.

I'm not straddling the fence. I said the guy was wrong.

You got a free meal. Kwitcherbitchin.
I'm a rebel but I decided not be a rebel about a freaking restaurant. I didn't dress with the intention of bucking a trend. I just kept my current outfit on because I wasn't bothered enough to change clothes. I just wanted to eat. I feel great as I did get a free meal. A meal if I paid it would have been about $120 for. So yeah I did win.

However, I wonder if the other patrons wearing similar clothing as me received similar grief.

Stone washed jeans yes. I also wore my Lucchese handcrafted cowboy boots (which are quite unlucky as something bad always happens if I wear them). My shirt was a Soundgarden T-shirt and my shark tooth necklace. I had a jacket which I wore as it is cold now but I removed it upon entry into the restaurant.

I don't get what you are complaining about?

You bought the biggest steak on the menu and wine, and it was all free, because your feelings got hurt. I think the restaurant did a stellar job, yet you are still butt-hurt. What is the problem, again? What was your loss? What more should they have done for you?

I'm not butthurt at all. I'm happy with the response I've received. I've said that I feel great but it was annoying having to deal with it entirely and asking if anyone else has been in a situation. I wasn't asking for people to criticize mine.

No, that has never happened to me. I've never shown up at a nice restaurant looking like 90s stoner trash.

I mean, come on now. A Soundgarden t-shirt? At a steakhouse/wine bar? You were asking to be harassed. Sounds like you expected it just to make a stink to get a free meal. Stay classy now.

You're telling me that I did all that for a free meal? I can pay for that meal no problem. I have more class than that. I looked like 90s stoner trash? I wore cowboy boots ffs. Cowboy boots are definitely in the wardrobe of stoner trash .

I know him because he is a common customer at the auto shop I help run. Anyway, I surprised her by taking her out to Fleming's Steakhouse tonight which I had a reservation planned.

We arrived at the restaurant. If you guys aren't familiar with Fleming's it is more of an "upscale" restaurant where you dress formal but I just decided to where nicely pressed jeans with a nice shirt (not collared though). None of the whole overly formal suit and slack stuff though my partner dressed lovely then again she came to the restaurant straight from work. She stayed back to go grab something she forgot when walking up so I walked in by myself.

I stood there waiting to be brought to our table but the frontman asked whether "we had lost our way". I politely said no but before I could say anything else, he interrupted me and requested security to see me out. My partner walks in asking what is going on. The security officer and the manager came up to the front and asked what was going on. The frontman was like "this......man won't leave the restaurant". I told the manager that I had a reservation. He asked me whether the doorman requested my name for a reservation and I asked the doorman did he. The doorman said yes. The manager told him not to lie because the camera already recorded the entire thing. He then confessed that he didn't so I gave the manager my name and he pulled up the reservation and apologized. He then sat us to a more private table and told us our meal was on the house.

I was embarrassed and felt bad for my girl who had to go through all that to be honest. I just wanted to be spontaneous and have a good evening with her. Without being part of a scene in front the other patrons. I made sure to get the biggest steak on the menu and a bottle of wine. I took the plate of leftovers home with a few toothpicks and boy was it good. I did see the frontman get called over by the manager but I don't know what happened to him. The manager did mention that this wasn't his first time doing this. It's a pity that was. Anybody else been prejudge by anyone ever?
I felt that the restaurant was 100 percent wrong to treat you that way. That being said, if you made a reservation then it really wasn't THAT spontaneous, now was it?

If I had been your girlfriend, I'd have been insulted that you didn't feel that the occasion was important enough to dress up for. It was a nice gesture, don't get me wrong, but just think how BLOWN AWAY she would have been if you had dressed up nicely in a pair one of those "suit and slack" things. It would have said... "I care enough about you to look really special for your birthday". It's the kind of thing that really IMPRESSES a woman, don't you know.
