What has happened to self-respect? The outfits those choose to wear while flying are unbelievable:

Ball caps (many backward)
Cargo shorts
Flip flops
Glasses on the head
Joggers
Messy hair
Sports jerseys
Trainers
Un showered
Yoga pants

Even if you do not respect yourselves, please show some for those who must look at you.

    Always wanted to ask the guy in suit, why one wears suit? What does it represent? It is certainly not comfortable. Flying Business/First class itself shows that one is doing good. Why why why on earth someone wears a suit ? Is it because they need material to show that you have somehow made it?

    Most good Business class offers pajamas and tshirts to wear during the flight. So why does it make sense to wear suit to airport and then change to something casual on the plane? Why why why?

    • CliftonLarsonAllen / OtherSVGNDoor
      OP
      Why do I wear a suit? Well, I’m not a privileged white man who is helped in front in me at Nordstrom - while dressed in cargo shorts in flip flops. No, I am a self-made man of color who has earned everything I have. It is not about exhibiting material wealth, it is about respect, etiquette, and not wanting to be put on the curb by the police. You should spend a day in my skin.

      'It is about respect, etiquette, and not wanting to be put on the curb', ok, I acknowledge that situation sucks for you and it may be a reason for you to wear a suit. How does me wearing a suit help you ? Respect for what .. the airline ? The people who have to look at me ? How is that different at the airport ? Do you require me to wear a suit everywhere ? Seems like there are better ways to be an ally if that's what you're after ..

      I’m sorry but everything is not about optics. I fly in and out every week from Mondays to Thursdays, and I’m working in suits all the time. Don’t get time to get into shorts because have to get to client meetings right from airports, and trust me it’s not very comfortable to fly in suits. It’s okay and not criminal to look out for your own comfort. Be considerate and not judgemental 🙂

    Flights to Australia are about 16 hours. About the same back. Even if I wore dress clothes, and change into a sleeping jumper suit, I’m still not going to look anything close to rested or polished. Seats in economy are so tight, I totally get why people are in sweats and yoga pants. And if you have to take off your shoes and belt, why not wear pull up pants and slip on shoes? You fly much, mate?

    Sir, you are not very kind.

    If you don’t respect the younger generations, they will not respect you.

    If I think about what to wear, how to impress folks like you, then I will truly lose my self-respect. Coming to traveling by flights, please change your perception that the list you mentioned is directly proportional to affordability. You are no one to tell folks to travel by bus/flight just by looking at their attire.

    The human race has come a long way from slavery, control and dress codes to freedom and comfort.

    It’s better for you to adapt to change and appreciate the situation rather than complain about it.
