Stupid Question, please do not flame me

Recommended Posts

Nothing personal, but that doesn't make sense. Is it really that difficult?? Hmm.

 

I literally cannot even sew a button onto something, so for me it would be a challenge. I don't do well with fabrics, mending them or altering them. Besides, I can just get them in the store, someone already did the work for me!

More fool you for being conned out of so much cash. You could have just gone to a Thrift Store for some pairs and ripped them yourself, then you'd have had $195 or so per pair to enjoy spending on something else.

Boasting about buying expensive rubbish is rather sad.

C'mon jollyjones, you have never boasted about buying expensive rubbish? Jewelry, golf clubs, designer clothes, cosmetics, cruise ship art??? Or was it the glass walls of your house?

 

Hey, I'm one of the cheapest SOB's around and even I have proudly bought a few bits of expensive rubbish in my day. You admit yours and I'll admit mine.

Nope.

 

Don't wear jewelry, don't play golf, make my own clothes or alter thrift store ones, don't wear makeup and as for cruise ship so called art, I don't even know anyone stupid enough to waste their money on it, l certainly don't.

 

Happy to pay big bucks on something if I think it will be of value to me, but don't boast about it. Cultural difference perhaps.

On NCL, does a staff member actually stand by the,doors, checking everyone for dress code violations? It does seem like a waste of time. Hmm.

You can just get a $10 pair at Walmart that'll rip naturally within a month. ;p

 

 

 

A $10 pair of jeans vs a $200 pair of jeans are on total opposite ends of the spectrum regardless of whether or not either of them contain rips. Have you ever tried on designer jeans? There is no comparison.

The matre d stands at the front and seats you. They would be the ones to enforce the dress code.

Only couple of specialty restaurants enforce dress code. Everywhere else is Free to dress like you want. You will see shorts, jeans, any type of shoes. Please after your trip post here your experiences to share with others.

For all the people that like to judge others clothing choices and the ones that have no fashion sense, I have decided to wear my $200 ripped jeans, and ripped pants everywhere on the ship, every day, every night. I actually went out and bought a few more pairs, just for the nay sayers here. While I will be put together nicely and wearing my expensive ripped jeans/pants, I am bringing my camera along to document my ripped jean journey. I am hoping to capture some of the nay sayers reactions, the smirks, appalled looks and see just how many places I can dine in with my ripped jeans. Look for my post in the next few weeks, it will be titled "My Ripped Jeans & I Sail The Escape". BTW, I'm old, which makes this even more fun!!!

So how'd this work out for you?

Ok, so every woman I know is wearing jeans or even pants that are distressed, holes and unhemed at the ankle. I have one such pair of nice white pants that have holes in the knees. ( I know, nice pants with holes,,but they are super cute!) Do you think they will let me in the dinning room for lunch with these on? Same pants, in black, do you think they would let me in the dinning room for dinner wearing them?

 

Please no rude comments, it's a fashion thing. Thank you:o

 

Not for dinner on Celebrity or Royal. Not sure about others

NCL is more relaxed with dress code, from what I hear.

Yep, there were plenty of ripped jeans on our recent NCL cruise. And without exception, each person wearing them looked ridiculous.

A beautiful woman with a great figure can wear just about anything and still look as if she stepped out of a fashion magazine and others can wear designer clothing and nobody will notice them.

 

I couldn’t care less what people wear , I am not there for that.

Wear what ever is comfortable ( yes there is a dress code for torn jeans not being allowed for dinner in some restaurants) the worst that can happen is that you may need to go back and change.

 

Don’t worry about other people, you will most likely never see them again in your life anyway.

Enjoy and have a great cruise, whatever you wear.

Wow! People are so nasty! Why is it necessary to be insulting and call people names? Didn’t your mother teach you “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all”?

Do you mean like calling people "so nasty"?:rolleyes:

 

If you can express your opinion (even if it isn't "nice"), so can others.

Well if the “nasty” shoe fits, they should wear it! Calling people “fools” or saying they look “ridiculous” or like “Street people” qualifies as nasty in my book! Some opinions (especially hurtful ones) should be kept to oneself! Have a great (and hopefully warm!) day!

That is your OPINION and you are free to express it.

Others who view something as "ridiculous" are also expressing their OPINION.

It's hypocritical to call people nasty and also state that "if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all”.

 

Some opinions (especially hurtful ones) should be kept to oneself!

If you actually feel that way, you should apply the same line of thinking to yourself. You calling people "nasty" isn't nice even if it is truly your opinion.

 

If you want others to keep their opinion to themself when it isn't nice, you should keep your opinion to yourself when it isn't nice.

If you want to express your opinion when it isn't nice (you can), others should also express their opinion when it isn't nice (they can).

Not trying to “flame” you, and I’m all for the casual environment on NCL, but holey jeans are just shabby. Pack some simple sundresses for the MDR.

It's certainly possible to say I don't like XYZ clothing and leave it at that, I suppose. :)

As free as people are to say hurtful nasty things I am also free to not like it and have an opinion about it....especially if it is directed at me. This whole argument is making my "eyes roll".

Of course, you can have that opinion. You are also free to express that opinion.

 

The problem is when someone states that "if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all" immediately after posting a comment that insults people.

Actually, Yes. My friend was sent back to his cabin to change from shorts to long pants. This was a few years ago in the main MDR. They may be more lenient now.

There are holes in the knees that look like this and like this. The smaller and singular hole in the knee pants may get in with a nice blouse/shirt accessorized with jewelry. The other pair...it depends I guess! 3aa73fe1e92c13a52f67cc73e91f0d75.jpgx354-q80.jpg

Just my opinion, this was not worth posting twice.

I saw extremely tacky evening dresses with Taylor Swift style cut outs in very cheap looking poly satin that in my view were a lot tackier than the ripped jean look. Fabric, cut, fit and how you wear it has a lot to do with in my view makes people look and feel good.

 

My son went to Bayamo at 6pm at age 12 in Lacoste dress shorts (knee length) and a collared button down with boat shoes and dressy socks. He was far better dressed than some of the Ross evening wear 4 sizes too small I witnessed throughout the cruise. To each their own but point is that elegance is definitely in the eye of the beholder.

 

Anyway, I'm a believer than when you agree to set sail with 4k passengers, you kind of need to respect the ambience other people expect. For some people, spending $2k on a vaca is very special and they want to count on the ambience they expected would be honored.

 

That said - I don't think lunch is anything to dress up for on Norwegian ships.

You seem conflicted as to what is appropriate. Maybe I'm reading you wrong?

I asked for pictures (for informative purposes..;)) waaaaaaaayyy back in post #2 but the OP never gave an example of what she wants to wear.

 

It's ultimately up to whomever is working the restaurant on a given night but I suspect that the top pants would be allowed but the bottom 2 would/should not be.

I wasn't aware that Taylor Swift had a style.

Is that a shot at Ross or at "plus-sized" women? :')

The expectation may not mesh with what NCL allows. Some ships allow shorts in ALL MDRs (for example) and some people get upset when they see shorts in the more "formal" MDR but if NCL allows it, there's no reason to be upset even if the "expectation" is that shorts shouldn't be worn in that MDR.

Yes - Taylor Swift made crop tops and dresses with cut outs very popular circa 2015 and 2016. She is tall, thin, and young and able to afford that look with taste.

 

No - not a dig at plus size. Ross sells awful fabrics - I’m personally a believer in less wardrobe, avoid trend and look more at quality and fit. But to each their own.

 

Yes - dress on ships seems always to be polarizing and I suppose I do come across as conflicted. I don’t think it’s black and white - and I don’t think distressed jeans at lunch really matters just like dress shorts for a 12 year old at 6pm worked because of how he wore them - he got compliments from cruisers for looking so nicely pulled together and age apppropriate.

I guess I just don’t get it. Why would anyone (other than a teen) want to wear ripped pants? Believe me, they are not flattering. Trust me, dear, a nice sundress in the dining rooms will look so much nicer. Leave the shabby clothes to the teens.

Are men and women treated equally when it comes to clothing? Are the standards the same?
