Great Idea, Kimono for japan !

I find a nice pair of cotton granny pants more comfortable than a thong, especially on a long haul flight.

Huh. I think it was on another similar thread that I saw this comment...we need an "OLD MAN SHOUTS AT SKY" sub-forum.

Fly in your own jet. Then you can set your own dress code.

I'd agree on a dress code in the lounges. There's no point in having a dress code onboard, since people change into PJs, and I don't care what the non-status plebs do in the terminal.

I am actually considering wearing a pair of oversized painters dungarees (as long as I can get them in black).
These may well be the ultimate in travel attire as they will have no waistband and plenty of pockets paired with a stripy top I can be mistaken for a mime so will have to be quiet in the lounge (no FaceTime conference calls for me . )

You have given 10,000 people fresh ideas on how to dress now.

Too difficult to undo after an emergency dash when the seatbelt signs go off.

PUCCI-darling, you've clearly not seen me at the weekends. What's the saying? Something about people in glass houses not throwing stones?

Of course there should be. What more could be more fitting than requiring passengers who wish to lounge in the luxurious confines of a 29 inch pitch CE seat and enjoy a gourmet Michelin starred Pannini to also have to dress for the occasion? Hot on the heels of the "Sleeper service" we will now have the "Dinner Jacket Servcie" for all departures after 16:59.

That's why I'm thinking oversized - just shimmy out of them.

Of course not, that would be a horrible step backwards.

However... a dress code might have stopped the individual I saw at LCY yesterday evening with a T-shirt proclaiming, "B**ches be tripping... unless I pushed her". Given the front pages of that poor lady being shoved in front of a bus it was in particularly poor taste!
