Rampant snobbery? In a thread about what to wear in First? On FlyerTalk? <insert HowVeryDareYou.gif>

Typed whilst sat in 1K, wearing First PJ top and jeans, and totally tattooed arms on display (tattooed chest also on display more than I would like - what is it with the ginormous neck opening on First PJs?!)

What to wear? A charmless sense of entitlement and an old bronze bag tag on a lanyard.

There is no shortage of people who don't wash their feet (and elsewhere) properly. Even if they do, after a day of walking around in leather shoes, the odor when they remove their shoes is notable. But's it's far better with flip-flops.

Why wear a seatbelt? How often do you really need it?

If you have sweating foot meat on ground, please do not expose it on the plane.
Most people can't tell which category they are i, or just don't care.

I'd be willing to bet I can find people wearing clothing--or the lack thereof--that most would find incredibly offensive.

How many don't? Based on the odors I encounter, quite a few.

Some complain about both.

Just as they complain about people clipping their nails on a flight or putting on fingernail polish.

A couple of weeks ago, I was boarding a flight and set my Venti Americano down on the center console. The person in the window seat knocked it over. So there was a lovely 16-oz on the floor.

Never been the lavs after a few hours into a flight?

There are also people who accidentally drop something sharp or break something made of glass and portions can remain on the floor. Not a good result when "protected" only by socks.

I think you need to "chanel" your inner Marilyn Monroe

The feet comments always make me laugh. Most people including those here do not wash properly their hands after taking a dump. Yet I do not see them wearing gloves at all times ….

I've got a pair of vibram furoshiki shoes that I often wear when flying longhaul. You can chuck them in the wash when they get dirty. They also fit nicely in an old CW shoe bag.

I typically wear jeans and a button down with vest (todays attire to Boston and will be spotted in the CCR this afternoon ) or a polo with a quarter zip. Will wear shorts if it is hot out. I think it strikes the right balance of comfort and looking decent.

Onboard consists of the PJs top and gym shorts.

Ill occasionally roll around with my Delta Silver tags (bronze equivalent) when on DL. I actually had someone tell me they were wondering how I managed to get an upgrade as a lowly silver on a JFK-LAX flight and wasn't going to mention anything until the FA came around to thank me for being a diamond.

​​​​​​If pants, shoes and pyjama are not comfortable, might end like with this British gentleman on JFK-LHR flight this week. So definitely comfortable.

Very bemused by this thread. I still recall as a young lad my mother insisting we (me and my brothers) all wore a suit and tie!
