When I was a kid, flying meant Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes. And I still wear a suit and tie when attending church, although it is now popular to dress as if one if getting ready to change the oil in one's car.

If some really hairy guy wears a sleeveless wife-beater shirt, it grosses me out, and the thought of sitting next to such a person makes me want to vomit. So I do care what other people wear. If an airline were to have a "resort casual" dress code, I would be more likely to fly it. As for the bad smell, I do wish the airlines would just have a list of rules like they do for exit rows that remind people to take a shower, use extra-strong, unscented antiperspirant, and refrain from using cologne or perfume.

No!! Say it isn't so!

Surely a "lady" would not wear a T shirt !! What next, gentlemen not wearing a tie or even a cravat in first ! Some people seem to think travel should be comfortable ! I thin the COC should state the standards of dress to avoid offending some of the FT ers !

Indeed!

A couple weeks ago we were booked on a flight that ended up being 4 hours late causing us to miss our connection, etc. etc. This thread popped into my mind as I glanced around at my fellow waitees.

I normally never notice how someone is dressed. As long as they don't smell bad and personal bits are covered, I don't care.

I took casual notice of what people were wearing both during the waiting and boarding of two AA flights and a UA flights 8 days later.

What I noticed is at least 75% were in jeans or sweats and tshirts or other very casual. About 20% were in khaki/Docker type with tshirts, polo other pull over, etc. And I'm giving a very generous 5% that were in slacks and button down shirts with or without coat.

So bottom line DH and I do dress like the majority when flying, which means casual and comfortable wear.

I'm usually the most casually dressed person in J or F and often the youngest as well. FAs still treat me wonderfully. I do get looks sometimes from other passengers as I walk by them in line, or when they walk through the J cabin on their way to Y.

My travel outfit usually consists of sneakers (latest travel sneakers have been Adidas NMDs I picked up in Lisbon), comfy joggers, a t-shirt and a light jacket.

If I know I'm going to see some of the higher ups in my company on my flight, I'll usually dress up a bit. I once got to the airport in GVA and realized the CEO of my company was on the same flight back to LAX. He didn't even give me a second look, despite having met me several times...

Smelling bad is the worst and you have to put up with it anyway. I don't like sitting next to some hairy guy in a tank top, short shorts and flip flops, and there's nothing I can do about that either except gripe on FT.

Will you sit next to a lady wearing flip flops in F? I find the longer I am away the less I really care about dressing up. As long as I am neat that's all that matters.

I usually wear either a nice pair of dark blue jeans or Khaki Pants along with a button shirt. I have a nice J Crew, Brooks Brothers and just purchased two Stafford Travel Wrinkle Free shirts from JC Penny(one Rockefeller Grey and the other Oxford Blue).

To me one should look decent especially going to Europe. If the destination is warm then I will wear a nice pair of shorts and a nice short sleeve polo or sport shirt or my La Crosse polo shirt.

BTW check out the Stafford Travel Shirt here and let me know what you think about it for travel.

Nothing I can do about how anyone dresses, or doesn't. I just sit there and keep to myself. But as to what privately offends me, the sum total of exposure adds up. Flip flops alone wouldn't do it.

Too dressy for me. My husband would never wear a dress shirt as he'd think it is too stiff and not relaxed enough.

However if you like it it looks really nice.

Dress Code
 
Gang -

I hope this is the right place to post this. If not then perhaps a moderator can tell me where or move it him/herself.

I flew from BOS to RDU today on Delta. There was a millennial on the flight dressed in jeans and a 'muscle shirt'. The top made a traditional wife-beater look like a sweatshirt. Who wants to sit next to someone who is practically not even wearing a shirt?

Does anything go these days?

Yes. Any sense of class has been lost in the current world.

Welcome to Flyertalk to both of you.

Excuse me then while I pop some popcorn in the microwave.
