Hi John,

Growing up in Brooklyn and working in Manhattan I had to dress GQ and look good, beleive it or not, I wore the most inexpensive clothing because I was so poor but I still looked damn good. I had to use a firehole to blast the babes off me. No one said I wore cheap clothing or a cheap suit.

Today I can go to Bellagio in Vegas and buy a 5,000.00 Armani Suit, but nope thats not me I would rather buy that suit off the rack at Walmart and still look good

Its more about how presentable you are in a resturant, especially on formal night.

I wrote an email to Mr. Bob Dickinson about re-wording or just adding the word "No Jeans" in the Clothing FAQ on the website to match what Princess has on theirs. He wrote back and said "We allow more casual attire in our dining rooms (than Princess) on casual nights"

Note, he stated on Casual Nights but didnt mention Formal nights. I have seen Mr. Bob Dickinson in Jeans but on Forma Nights he wore a Tuxs. So basically Jeans are allowed. Where I grew up, we used jeans at the farm and when we went to town we showered and wore our best threads possible. $300.00 pair of Jeans last longer at the farm.

great im a dead woman. I told my hubby no jeans, and he loves his jeans, so he went and bought expensive docker type pants. I'd have rather saved the money and let him wear what he loves to begin with.

I agree nice jeans (NICE) AND A NICE shirt can look good together with boots etc, but alas NOT on formal nights.
