How to strike a blow for beauty and modesty

Believe it or not, you can do it even if you are a man by dressing well.  According to Tammy Bruce, the editor of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine said this about the current trend of wearing "yoga pants" and/or leggings to all kinds of events:

Nothing makes you rethink your wardrobe choice like the embarrassment of shaking hands with five people in suits while you're wearing exercise pants.

Want to help your female friends look better and avoid "giving too much information"?  Exchanging jeans for slacks, exercise shoes for work or dress shoes, or putting on a coat or tie might be just the ticket.  And even if it doesn't help with that, your wife might like it.

There are very VERY few exceptions to the rule of men wearing more formal clothes = better.

Or why I iron buttondowns for my husband, even though there's no real dresscode where he works.

Although jeans are pretty good, most of the time. But you may feel free to wear real shoes with the jeans, and a nice belt. :D

I've actually gotten a reputation of being the guy with the tweed cap and nice sweater at my kids' cross country and track meets. Unless I'm going to be working in the shop or something, there aren't a lot of places where a touch nicer doesn't fit.

One exception to the Conde Nast rule appears to be the decollette, but that appears to have been the case for centuries. Oh well.
