Patty, maybe not the best analogy but I've never understood how swimwear companies can justify charging more money the skimpier the bathing suit is.  Interesting how they provide less material and charge more.  Obviously it works because people buy them.  Oh well this is what makes the world go round.  😱

 

Come to think of it I am not sure if I've seen a thread on what types of swim suits are permitted on-board.  Ummm, maybe for another time/discussion.  LOL.

I was severely chastised on another board for joking about 70 year old, 250 pound European men and women in Speedos and bikinis!!

I've never understood $500 purposely ripped jeans. Now, if you look like Melania (no politics please, just commenting on her physical appearance), you can "pull it off". I have an 8 x 10 glossy with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back (you have to be a certain age to "get" that) of me in the same outfit!!!😱🤡😎

I know the reference, I can even hear the person saying it, but I will be darned if I can remember what it was from! 😣 I want to say Alice's Restaurant?

Oh you shouldn't be chastised. 

 

Often at sea, and even where we live the ones I see in speedos would do better to wear those swimsuits from the early days when men wore a one piece swim suit that covered not only bottom but tummy.  :classic_laugh:

We saw jeans with holes on several nights on our recent (ten days ago) Serenity cruise.  

I do not understand  that concept

I have thrown out jeans that looked better than some I have seen people wear  in the  name of "designer jeans"  😲

Times have changed

Party - Was that photo of you taken on the Group "W" bench?

 

Funny, I didn't get her reference (and I AM of a certain age) until I read yours!

I had to laugh at this! We had a pool party for the family earlier this summer, and my older sister, who has not worn a bathing suit in MANY years, informed me she had bought a burkha-kini for the occasion! 🤣

Jean shorts are ok for casual night, correct?

No shorts for dinner on casual nights.  Jean or any other fabric.

Actually I have seen a very short pair of tidy cutoff Jeans worn by a leggy lady (a full World Cruiser) in the Crystal Dining Room on a Crystal Casual night last year - and if I may say so she wore them very well. She had her meal and left without incident so I’m not so sure they are banned

Maybe the dress police looked the other way (or actually in the way) for a "leggy lady". Not so sure it would be the same outcome for a knobby-knee'd gentlemen...(I know, I know, misogynist double standard here...😊)

Lol - I think you’re right - yes I and I’m sure others observed purely in a professional capacity to ensure standards were maintained 🙂

This reminds me of an incident in another luxury line when a gentleman in a cowboy jean and denim shirt attire was politely escorted out of the main restaurant, while a lovely lady in a white rhinestone encrusted jean and matching jacket was escorted to a table.  Men might want to consider bling....

Apparently now very dressy shorts jumpers and/or matching shorts/tops are in style now with those who can carry it off (and some who can't.) My young guest on the cruise this summer wore flowered shorts with a long flowing matching jacket wrapped with a belt and another younger woman wore a one piece lacy jumper shorts with heels. Neither was denied entry to dining venues or and nothing said to either one.

Well that's not 100% true. The one in the jumper shorts and her escort were asked to leave the white night because they were doing more, um, bumping and uh, um grinding, than dancing but it had nothing to do with her outfit.

At night guests are asked not to wear shorts to the dining venues.  However, as we all know just like on a BTO night in some venues this is overlooked.  In others it is not.  

 

I think we can all point to seeing some not in the recommended attire in the evenings (or maybe lack of attire 😁) and I think many of us have seen some very unique outfits over they years.  Then again when you choose to travel with 800 to 1000 people almost every cruise will bring out something unique  often having nothing to do with attire.  😁

For those of you new to Crystal this is one of the items covered in the before you sail booklet which arrives with your cruise documents or you can also find it on-line on the Crystal Cruises website.

As I mentioned not all items are enforced all the time across all restaurants.

Well to be honest, I preferred the very dressy shorts outfits (they are not shorts like we think of shorts) on the two girls than the open to almost the belly shirts on two of the male dancers on the white night!

Should a large framed tall male wear skinny jeans?  Asking for a friend.

Well your friend absolutely could, but then the question was should they? How comfortable would they feel in skinny jeans? 😉

A couple of years ago we actually saw a woman come into the Bistro in her bathrobe and slippers and get her breakfast to take to her room! Truth!!!

 

Frankly I've never understood the insistence on jeans in the dining room. One must put both legs into a pair of trousers, why can't they do it with nice slacks instead of jeans? But then, as I grew up, jeans were Saturday wear, and in school there were no jeans allowed off campus or in the dining room. Yes it was a long time ago and times change, but such a fuss over a pair of pants!

Is they a double entendre?  😉
