In a previous post, I wrote about the new suit that I bought last summer. It still fits awesome. A few days before I left for Vegas, I watched Ocean’s Thirteen. There are some nicely dressed characters in that movie, mainly dudes in suits. Though I didn’t believe I could pull off a Clooney or a Pitt, I decided nonetheless that I would wear my suit on my flight to Vegas.
On departure day, I didn’t go the shirt and tie route but wore a decent looking black polo shirt underneath my charcoal grey suit. It’s the fanciest I’ve even been at the airport but I got to admit, I like wearing my suit, it just fits so well.
Almost everyone else on my flight was pretty casual in dress, except for one older gentleman, he was wearing a suit too but no tie with his shirt. It’s the older dudes that always dress up for things and you gotta give them credit for that sometimes.
When I arrived at McCarran International, I had to stroll quite a distance and take a tram to get to my baggage carousel. As I made my way along, I began to think people take you more seriously when you’re all dressed up to travel than if you were in sweats. Maybe that’s not fair but I think there’s some truth to it. Why do you think these guys wear suits when they travel?
Anyways, I enjoyed it so much, I wore the suit on the flight back. When I got back home, I wanted to wear the suit everywhere. Then I realized if I did that, it wouldn’t be special, that’s why I wouldn’t want to wear a suit to work everyday.
I’m thinking of buying a black suit now.
