Yes, I'm forever showing up in full evening dress accidentally—and volunteering to shake hands with women and spearing olives while so attired. :shock: :? :oops: There, I've admitted it. I feel so much better with that off my chest.

Yes and I can just imagine you leading the way into the restaurant, theater, opera, a street car or a drawing room right ahead of your undoubtedly improperly attired date/wife. :lol: :o

This thread is the best.
