Average Americans dress like bums

With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American — even at work — dresses like a bum, no pride in one’s attire at all. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.

Without a doubt, Americans need to start taking pride in the attire that they wear, especially in the work place. In America, to be sure, fine dressing is a thing of the past, and it is a downright shame.

Back in the 1970s, I used to have a subscription to “Gentlemen Quarterly” (GQ, for short), because back then it was a given that men in the office would dress the part, and that means a dress suit and tie. I no longer have a subscription to “GQ.” I, now, wonder if that magazine is still in print.

Furthermore, I see the youth of today growing without a proper sense of attire. Not only do our youth tend not to dress well, but they also wear their ratty blue jeans way down below their butts, so low that their underwear is clearly seen — how horrible.

Indeed, Americans overall and Santa Clarita residents especially need to start dressing for success, and I do not buy the fact that they cannot financially afford a couple of nice dress suits and ties. If one checks out eBay and clothing warehouses, one can buy a tie for less than five dollars and a dress suit for less than seventy-five dollars.

Again, countrywide — and especially in the Santa Clarita Valley — one needs to dress for success, not in the ratty clothes that presently they dress in. Kids, to be certain, need to put a little money aside so that they can dress properly for the office whenever they begin in the workaday world.

The aforesaid counsel on proper attire goes out especially to our males in the office, not the females, for women seem to dress properly for the office.

Yes, a nice suit and tie — for men — gives one self-worth and a sense of personal dignity, and that leads the way to proper hygiene and grooming. Men, dress for the office like most men dress for their church services.
