Having read Megs most recent posts it's good to know I'm not alone. As I have said before I like to push the envelope of what is acceptable male attire. tonight I pushed quite hard, and, no reactions anywhere.
My band was playing for a Mason's dinner, I was conducting, the agreed dress code for the band was all black, i.e. open neck shirts and trousers. As the conductor I feel obliged to be a little more flamboyant in my dress than the rest of the band. This evening that meant a black satin cap sleeve blouse, black laddies dress trousers, over sheer tights, men's oxford shoes and a dinner jacket. And guess what - no one noticed
After the gig I changed my shoes to some more, or less, appropriate open toed high heels, and lost the DJ I had a coupe of glasses of wine at one of my favorite, safe, bars. but no real interaction with any civilians. I want to chat, join in with any fun, maybe even be chatted up.....
I think that is my biggest disappointment, all dressed up and nobody cares
