  1. No shoes - No shirt - No service
    A rule mostly encountered in shops, restaurants, and other businesses in the United Oh-my-Gawwwds of America. Where if you have no shoes, no shirt, you will NOT get service. Unless you’re a hot chick of course. Could a French milliardaire (pseudo?)-philosophe be another exception? Or could it just be a ridicoulous question that is supposed to function as the lead-in (bruggetje) to the actual topic, the four photos posted? Mmm. Now I am to much of a square and a prude to ever begin to understand why a jacket or suit worn totally 'commando' is considered to be attractive on man. And to make matters worse I am also a terrible hypocrite because I enjoy the (so would say: douchey) 60s Côte d’Azur playboy- 70s disco shirt contrivances which produce the same effect when worn with a jacket in summer. Time to consult a psychologist? Most likely. However, conspicous consumption is cheaper and less confrontational so I think I will probably try to find a Mandarin jacket as seen in the third photo - to wear with old ripped denim and suede chukka’s. And maybe acquire (another) white pop-over or (another) white summer shirt with Capri collar to combine with my thrifted bespoke Domhoff tuxedo jacket from 1934 (not unlike the unit in second picture) - to wear with faded ripped denim and a pair of suede chukka boots. Finally, depending on depth of the crater in my account, perhaps burn more cash on an utterly useless ‘summer scarf’ to pair with a field jacket - in order to wear it with faded… eh you get the idea.
