10 to 20% wearing tuxes is about right. Bama is wrong. It is not a matter of expense at all. I have a tux, but I've left it home the last two cruises. My business suits cost on average $4 or $500 more than the tux, they look nicer and I like them better. Tuxes are seen as pretentious. If you want to wear one, fine -- but don't deride others (the clear majority) who have a different view of the subject.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
