Manuel, I am with you 100%. I dress for comfort, whenever possible. On formal nights, I reluctantly wore a coat and tie, but I removed them as soon as dinner was over. I do like he Carnival "elegant nights" where I can wear a nice comfortable sports shirt rather than a suit.
There once were an evil king and queen. She hated men and he hated women. So she invented the necktie, and he invented panty hose.
