Bricks and Breeks

 
Above: Gentlemen must be Properly Attired

So readeth the sign on the wall of one of Melbourne's inner city pubs. So remember Gentil Hommes, next time you think to enter and quench your thirst with a good, cold ale, be sure your satin knee breeches fit snugly and are in accordance with your matching westkit, your frockcoat buttons polished, your kid leather shoes with low wood stack heels and embossed steel buckles in good condition and your tricorne at the correct angle.


Today's quote: Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society ~ Mark Twain.

Great capture. I was wondering what defined "proper attire." These days there is a rather wide variation in definitions of proper attire. I've seen the "No shirt, no shoes, no service" signs before.

My father used to wear a suit with tie most every day. But in the 30s, 40s and 50s that was considered proper attire for gentlemen.

Today? It's up for grabs.
