He works for a technology start-up where everyone wears t-shirts and flip flops. No thank you.

Actually, he likes to dress nicely and wishes men still dressed like they did in the 1920′s. I adore how European men dress. And I love to see Southern men in seersucker.

As good as it gets, in my opinion! Tell me you know of them! http://www.imogeneandwillie.com/

Even in 100 degree blistering heat – most of the men dressed impeccably. Beautiful suits – lots of blues. However, in my usual life, I am in a coastal town in Massachusetts where you see a lot of tee shirts and jeans and sneakers, blah. And occasionally whale decorated pants, double blah.

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 18:36:03 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=38621#comment-523814 Well from the sound of things your men will be well prepared for Oakland! Layers are pretty much a must,it is lunch time here and only 63 degrees! But it could also be 80-90 just a mere jaunt to the other side of the tunnel (read: walnut creek) the Faux. Hawk is popular with the indie kids. as is all styles of jeans for pretty much any age! My husband works for a Fortune 500 company as a senior art director and wear jeans every day. The kids here dress more toward what their musical tastes are… And the adults it is a combo of life style and work requirements but in general it is so Casual, as a New Yorker myself I have been over dressed many a time. Girls and women here wear very little make up, just an observation. I think you and your family will be stylish and fit right in.
Cheers

Paisley tie with a stripey button-down!). My parents are a bit more sedate and his fashion choices always catch them off guard, but I love that about him. :)

I love a man in a bow tie! I’m actually making one for my two year old to wear to a wedding this weekend and I may actually be more excited about the tie than I am about the wedding (don’t tell the bride!) :)

Older men will wear cowboy hats and bolo ties, too. Men- again usually old timers- will wear large silver and turquoise Spanish or Pueblo jewelry.

There is that small percentage who wear suits, and I often find myself thinking ‘I wish more men would dressed up.’ My husband works for a software development company and left the house this morning in plaid shorts and a t-shirt (both nicely pressed) and Vans. This is totally his style, but I love the opportunities when he does have to dress up and I think he does too, as long as it is not everyday.

That is the cutest thing I’ve ever heard. Preeeetty sure it needs to go in an Olive Us episode so we can hear it too (in case we ever need a faux-hawk in France ;) ).

We have an older friend who operates his own excavating business. This man wears, every single day, a dress shirt and a TIE! when he goes to work on his heavy machinery. He’s definitely a legend around here, but his effort at a fine presentation makes a very good impression on his clents.

It consists of Carharts, Duluth Trading anything and RedWing work boots. These guys consider their ‘dress” to be their identity, and they value handy-ness (meaning, they have tool boxes and know how to use them) and common sense. The accessory of choice of course is a pickup truck, but that’s a whole ‘nother universe of conversation!

I know many men who have ONE TIE and are saving it for their funerals. Amazing. I wish they knew how a little effort in dressing up would elevate them as gentlemen.

I live in Silicon Valley and I’m not sure that most of the men I see there even OWN a pair of dress shoes let alone know how to keep them polished. In fact, one of my friends only owns one pair of shoes – a pair of Birkenstocks! I spent nearly every minute of my time on the metro in Paris nudging my traveling companion and telling him, “Look at that guy’s shoes!”
