Default Re: Dress code questions

Felicia,

IMO, comparing people who I describe as the "Fashion Police" to Nazi's is like comparing a garden snake with a rattlesnake. And I didn't like Seinfeld's "Soup Nazi", either. The thing is, you don't know who may be reading your posts, and I'm sure you wouldn't want to offend anyone. You just don't know-they might be a survivor of the Concentration Camps or maybe most of their relatives were killed in the Camps.

Just so I don't avoid the subject, I think that people should make an effort to dress according to the dress code on formal night if they are going to eat in the main dining room. I'm not saying you have to bring out the prom dresses or bridesmaid dresses (as if anyone would!), I'm just saying wear something appropriate. Personally, I wear nice black pants, a "sparkly" top, and black flats, and have never felt underdressed.

It's not like it's a big surprise that there is a formal night. Everyone knows about it and if they don't want to get dressed up, there are other places to eat.

At ANY function, it's just good manners to dress as requested.
