Reply To: Dress code for flights

Well done United for having dress code rules, just wish they and other airlines would extend it to to all customers.

Like PoshGirl I’ve seen quite a few examples of what I call “a triple F victim”

My list of Flying Fashion Frightmares starts with grown men, especially pot-bellied men triballing themselves up with overpriced walking adverts for booze, betting or loan companies.
This catwalk of sin is particularly prevalent at GLA, but the blue and green parade occasionally migrates along the M8 corridor and can also be spotted at EDI.
This ritual is almost bearable when departing the cool climate of Scotland, but absolutely intolerable when returning from sultrier sweaty hot spots.

Next on my list, requires dual synchronization, and I have to confess to breaking my girlfriends heart when I refused to participate in this fashion faux pas. Back in the day when shell suits weren.t just confined to the boulevards of Merseyside, the lovely Lorraine excitedly apportioned me with my half of the garish ensemble the night before our flight to Portugal. . Needless to say, my howls of laughter at the thought of matching shell suits for travel were met with tears and dismay at my lack of enthusiasm for this demonstration of love. This transgression has now trended towards track suits and sadly the victims still strut about like performing peacocks blissfully unaware that all around them, the rest of us are guffawing at their idiocy.

And finally a plea to all, it’s an aircraft not your living room . Some might think it’s acceptable just to stick an overcoat over your bed clothes for a quick nip down to Tesco, it’s not acceptable behaviour if your just nipping across an ocean or a continent.
