    Bit of a dead thread...but I just bought myself a watch because I've been a good boy and I deserved a present!

    I went in to look at a Tag Formula one, but ended up buying a Carrera Chronograph. What a beautiful watch.

    Never had an expensive watch before, or anything showy really so I hope I don't lose it because I'm not used to wearing it!

    Anyway, very happy and it's a fine piece of engineering. (you can see through the back of it!)

    I hear you...
    I absolutely refuse to dress up to please others.
    I go to the Porsche garage looking like a sack of **** to most of their customers (jeans, t-shirt, trainers, tracksuit top etc...). My clothes may look scruffy but i'll be they cost as much as a cheap suit and a pair of plastic shoes that give the image of being 'well off'.

    I enjoy them looking down their noses at me...because I know I choose to dress like that, I know what my watch & car is worth.

    I just don't see the link between dressing 'smart' and being well off.
    I can afford to dress as I like...so shall do.
    As you say...our money is as good as that of a man wearing a suit.

    Sorry guys, I have to disagree about some points on the dressing part.

    It may not be common here, but back where I'm from you do get quite a number of people who do not know how to respect others with their attire at proper venues.

    I've spent quite a sum of money in a proper nice restaurant to enjoy a meal with my lady companion, and the last thing I need is a guy sitting beside with jeans, sneakers and polo t-shirt shouting that his ice-water is too cold. Trust you understand what I mean. Some of the nicer restaurants do not have a formal dress code, expecting customers to respect themselves and others, but sadly, it isnt working that well.

    ..and I fail to see how wearing something less formal than a pair of slacks and a pressed shirt means your money isn't as good as the next mans when spending good money on a nice meal + wine.

    Don't get me wrong...I do choose to put on a decent pressed shirt when going out somewhere nice...but usually accompanied by jeans and a pair of leather shoes (not trainers). I just don't see why I should be expected to.

    What does it matter what the person sitting next to you is wearing?
    If the clothes are filthy or smelly, fair comment.
    But just because they are jeans? surely not...

    At the end of the day, a Chav/Ned/Tosser/Ill-mannered lout is still a Chav/Ned/Tosser/Ill-mannered lout whether they are in jeans and trainers or a cheap suit and a pair of plastic shoes!
    Surely manners have more to do with it?

    It's not only casually dressed people who can be rude and arrogant, far from it! Surely theres no need to confuse good manners with dress code as that far from the reserve of the casually dressed!

    You lot are making me feel guilty, all i spend my money on is going out with my mates.

    It's actually frightening to think what i could buy each month with the money that i burn.

    Casual dressing is fine by me, as long as it's in the proper environment. It may be superficial, but a lot of people who bring guests to nice fancy places aim to impress, and lets be frank...some dude in a pair of cut jeans and "star****s" t-shirt would spoil the whole setting wouldnt it?

    I'm just saying a strict dress code will at least filter out people who dress too shabby. This is based on the assumption that people who take the effort to dress up might have a higher chance of behaving well.
    There are always exceptions of course, but hey, at least everybody looks good

    It is sad when petty house rules are needed to govern behavior, the days of unspoken expectations are well past imho.

    For example

    You're probably one of the blokes in suits that was looking down his nose at me when i rocked up at Chinawhites last friday in my jeans trainers and t shirt.

    I obviously still looked good enough though to talk my way round the 3 door staff and their strict no trainers rule that they have. Probably cos it ain't what you wear but how you wear it and most places in London recognise that. I'd look worse in a 129.00 suit and a cheap pair of shoes from Next.

    And the behaving well cos you're wearing a suit thing is bull****. I wear a suit to work every day and it in no way affects the way that i would behave, a thugs a thug no matter how they dress.

    I suggest you get out a bit more in the real world my friend.
