I never go to any formal event without my tux tee shirt.

Ah, the tux t-shirt. Timeless apparel - whether at a Met gala or shotgunning PBR on the hood of a '85 Firebird.

Well-played. Well-played, indeed.

Anyone who saw my pictures on that Diner thread will understand that anything more formal would veer into Fauntleroy territory pretty quickly.  >:D

Whatever I feel like wearing. I'm there to listen and watch, not to be watched and listened to. I don't mind or care what other people wear, it's their choice. If someone wants to prejudge me on what I'm wearing, well, to quote Rhett Butler, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."

I'm just there to listen to music, so I don't put on anything special, just what I would wear any other day, jeans etc. At least if it's a standard concert hall thing.. If it's the opera I might wear something slightly more formal, but still pretty casual..

In Paris, most people wear suits but without tie.
I'm not very disciplined with this. When I think of it, I wear a suit.

In Warsaw, people are much stricter with clothes. I take more care because my fiancee tries to oblige me.

In Santiago I usually wear a suit. Now that I'm in Paris, it depends on the circumstances (but as I like wearing suits, it's not a problem for me). ;)

Where is that?

Austin, Texas, USA... I think more Birkenstocks are sold here per capita than anywhere this side of San Francisco. Other than a few pockets of students (many of whom dress up as well), the symphony is filled with dapper dressers, so I feel more at home assuming their "code".

Why? You were comfortable and they were all itchy. I laugh at them all!

I am just as comfortable in a suit--nothing itchy about it. ;)

I notice some scruffy people...What about you? Smart or casual? :)

Scruffy, I'm afraid. I always wear my very best black t-shirt though.

I was thinking something more along the lines of this

What I mean to say is, I wear nothing at all!

It's been a long time since I attended a local concert (much more interesting music can be had on disc), but I quite happily dress as a gentleman should for such events (i.e., nice dress clothes). A little class, in both music and attire, would do a lot of people some good.

Here's me on my way to an Elgar concert:

I usually don't get many opportunities to attend many performances. That said, I usually strive to dress conservatively. Polo shirt/dress shirt with khakis. That way I can at least keep from falling into the scruffy category.

Another Texan who dresses up here. ;) It's always fun to choose what to wear to go to concerts, I dress close to formal to go to the (also Houston) Symphony, more formal for Saturday nights than matinees, and more for certain programs. Local concerts more dress casual.

I like chic pantsuits, fun dresses, and a la Carrie Bradshaw heels (girl reference :D) though they can be annoying to walk in. I wish I could wear designer stuff (Armani suits, lucky Bunny!) but I find great things at the department store for 1/10th the price, can't complain.

The big cities in Texas do dress, but you see all kinds though, the pic I posted was going to a Pops concert and I was sort of overdressed, yet for this season's Pops finale, I went dressy casual and saw pearls and people in prom dresses. So a wide variety. Classical series I often see ladies in taffeta or silk brocade skirt suits and lots of jewelry, very pretty.

In The Netherlands, I felt overdressed in what I would wear down here, even to see Der fliegende hollander. I wore a flowy skirt and boots when we went to the world premiere of the De Meij 3rd Symphony and it was just right. Dressy city chic and comfortable more the norm over there, the focus is a little more on the music than impressive outfits and jewelry.

I, like Greta, often envy the smarter stylings of some of my fellow concert-goers. But, I just can't bring myself to spend the extra dollars on more handsome apparel. Not when there are CDs to be bought!

For Elgar

I'd need something strong enough to counter the rampant Wellington Fever!
