It's the next big thing as long as the customers aren't big things themselves.

So what's wrong with 30 year old men in sports jerseys? Tell that to my late 50s parents who still wear jerseys to hockey games -- and therefore when they are out to eat before or after.

I have a simple philosophy. I'm a casual person. If a nice sweatshirt or golf shirt with khakis isn't good enough, it's doubtful I'd enjoy the place anyway, so I won't go there.

As far as summer weight jackets -- when it's 90, any jacket is stifling. I'll be in short sleeves, period, in that weather. Does it look any better for sweat to pour off my face, which would be the result if I wore a jacket?

Most people I know, even in my parents generation, are thankful for more casual dress. I mean, nobody is forcing anyone to be casual. Wear what you like. But don't force your standards on others, that's my opinion.

"Dinner jacket" is a very dated term. "Blazer" or even just "jacket" is probably a better term.

I admit, I've worn a blazer with an open-collar shirt and jeans to many nice restaurants in Chicago, but the jeans are always dark-wash. But if you go to a REALLY nice restaurant like Tru, Trotter's, or Everest, you should wear a suit.

I like my men dressed up but there is an appropriate time for everything.
Nothing wrong with casual wear in the right situation.
Houston is very hot and in the summer time you cant walk outside without immediately smelling like a wet dog and your face melting off but people still will wear jackets. I see your point about not being a sweaty mess. The jacket almost immediately comes off anyways. It does seem kind of silly but I appreciate the effort.

It's childish, immature and silly-minded, other than that I guess it's OK. Your parents appear to be Baby Boomers, a generation noted for it's childishness, immaturity, self indulgence, self delusion and silly-mindedness. I ought'a know.

Wouldn't matter what you wear; you already look like a fool for going to a Sox game
