HoustonTEX said:I have read the fratty.net message board and I have been disgusted by the immaturity. It is a bunch of kids that want to prove to other kids that they are more privileged and "old money" then others. They look at movies like "American Psycho" and "Wall Street" and do not see the negative social commentaries made but quote and praise the characters. They are even horrible to other members of the message boards.
I loved my fraternity days. I am still close to many of my fraternity brothers and we still talk about our wilder days. I do like the fact that when I go to football games the fraternity men still dress basically the same way we did 10+ years ago. I hope fratty.net and all other boards in the same vain are taken down. I fear that impressionable 18 year old will see these boards and believe this is how they should behave.

It would seem that I’ve been posting on the wrong forum. (wink)
Sure the author’s piece is not the most eloquent and smacks of immaturity, however I would say that much of his posting could be used as the building blocks of “southern trad”. In fact, follow the provided links for several examples of “Southern Lifestyle Trad”. Of course, if you feel that trad is only about the clothes—stay away or this thread will erupt into one of “those” arguments. But, when these “young men” grow up and start posting on AAAC, which forum to you think they’ll use?
I was even tempted to list the Chevy Tahoe/Suburban as an example of a “southern trad” vehicle in a recent post on the subject.
Any others share these views?
and by the way I've got half a feeling somebody will ban me for saying this so I also want to add to the guy who was wearing a black jacket to his job interview and then wound up not getting the job. Black jackets are considered very poor taste unless your attending a funeral or in the mafia.
