  • Unboxing videos.

  • Gonna have to check out a bunch to see if I do too…
    Naw, I’ll just take your word for it.

    Unless you mean that you’re just tired of your job at Blockbuster.

  • Ah, I remember blockbuster.

    Novelty of going to the video store and flipping through titles and picking random shit to get the best 5 for 5 deal is missing from this generation. Fuck netflix

  • Blockbuster was awful. Epic numbers of 5 films and then a random assortment of straight to DVD.

    I miss the amazing indy video store near where I used to live.

    For our wedding we said something like suits and no ties. I think. Or maybe we said smart relaxed.

  • Actually I'm not sure we had blockbuster back home but definitely a few video stores - usually sharing space with a chip shop or pizza shop. Heaven. :)

    I'll be wearing a suit with no tie. If they want me to wear a tie, they can fucking buy it and tie it.
    I'm annoyed I killed my work shoes. Now I have an old pair of work shoes I need to clean and try out to see if they're not too mouldy to wear. I don't want to buy a pair of dress shoes for a weddding.

  • I checked and we said "relaxed" and "it would be nice if men wore suits and ladies dresses". We we felt implied no ties and whatever footwear. But also let people wear causal trousers and shirt if they wanted.

    One of my mates went in a full suit but tracksuit bottoms instead as they left their trousers at home.

  • At least the dress code isn't something ridiculous like black tie before 6.

  • I mean, I haven't actually eyeballed it yet.

    He's from California so I was kinda hoping thongs (flip flops to you lot) and a tank top with some kind of Hang Ten shit on the front would do. Nice pair of boardies to complete the ensemble.

  • My friend's engagement party recently had similar - gave ideas of things people could wear and said it would be nice if people dressed up. Dress codes are an absolute minefield in China though, at our work annual dinner someone wore a ballgown, another person was in joggers, and a few people were in fancy dress.

  • I find the whole notion of smart/formal/casual etc impossible as it seems so subjective to me. My brother in law only ever wears: a work suit, golf clothing or smart casual (shirts and polos tucked into jeans and sheaux). He simply cannot understand someone over the age of 25 dressing casually, and as a result seems to be borderline disgusted at me and my brothers’ clothing choices at family events - much to our amusement of course.

    Same goes for pals who have to dress smartly for work. If you wear a suit daily, it probably doesn’t feel that smart, so dressing smart usually means very smart. Where as I’m used to wearing work gear, anything without contaminants all over it is pretty much formal wear.

  • I find the whole notion of smart/formal/casual etc impossible as it seems so subjective to me.

    Traditional English dress codes used to be far less subjective and ambiguous.

    Smart casual, for example, meant formal trousers, dress shoes, shirt, tie but most importantly a blazer or non matching jacket rather than a full matching suit.

  • A lounge suit? I remember seeing that as the dress code for work awards nights, all the hacks were in their usual work attire, cheap M&S suits, etc, but us designer types would be pissed up in caps, baggy jeans, t-shirts and sneakers... How we lol'd...

  • Dress codes are an absolute minefield in China though, at our work annual dinner someone wore a ballgown, another person was in joggers, and a few people were in fancy dress.

    Wouldn't a minefield be if the code was really strict? Sounds like anything goes!

  • No, a minefield is where it is anything goes, except for one, undisclosed style. If you wear the proscribed outfit you get your legs blown off.

  • this conversation needs more jeansandsheux

  • Ah yes you're right. It looks clear but you don't know when you're going to step on an awful faux pas.

  • jeansandsheux

    I'm also keen to know more about this.

  • Anything goes except having boobs, which is kind of awkward if you can't help that you have boobs and you spend a non-inconsiderable amount of time looking at surgery to get rid of said boobs.

  • My sister's partner is a jeansandsheux.

  • There's a lot of it goes on when smart/casual is the vibe. Blazer x jeansandsheux.

  • Mine identified 😬

  • @hats, none of my beeswax, but I think it would be sad to be socially pressured into having surgery.

    Doesn't sufficiently tightly wrapped cling film (or similar) achieve the same effect?

    I have literally no idea what I am talking about, by the way.

  • Binding can be pretty painful and damaging if done badly (eg clingfilm), not sure if that was srs.
    You can bind/minimise safely but there's a limit to where you can put a more or less fixed volume.

  • cheap M&S suits

    Cheap ?

    My cheap wedding suit came from here ...
