Well, I know its not a generational thing. I'm only 34, and I bring a suit for formal night. Its an upbringing thing, pure and simple. I'm sure I will get flack for saying this, but its true. How you are raised is reflected in how you are in society. When I cruise, I wear a nice pair of slacks and a button down (usually long sleeve) for dinner in the main dining room. And on formal night I will wear a coat and a tie. I am a firm believer in the idea of how you look/dress is a direct reflection in how you feel/are as a person. I live in Florida and I love my shorts in the summer. But I also know how to "dress to the nines" and when I look sharp, I feel sharp. Its just that simple.
