Brownshoe said:I think a lot of what reads as "pathos" to you is actually pretty tongue-in-cheek; we get painted with the "you take yourselves too seriously" brush pretty often, but I don't see it. More like gallows humor in a Men's Wearhouse world.
Anyway, a stiff upper lip is no more "trad" than any other emotional profile--let me sing another chorus of "Trad is Something You Wear, Not Something You Are." A personality test/background check is not a prerequisite for wearing J Press. The idea that we on this board subscribe to such a notion is, I believe, largely a misunderstanding.
We love the clothes. We love the history. We like to kid around. And I would wager we all would find the idea that this "trad" stuff is some kind of badge of moral/social/whatever superiority patently ridiculous.
At least I pray to God we would.
Do you mean to tell me that wearing bow ties does not make me superior to those who don't? :icon_smile_wink:
