This evening I attended an Awards bash in the City, the details of which I’ll write about later. But the thing that caught my eye was the fact that almost none of the men wore ties.
I know that just twenty or thirty years ago, attending a similar event, every man would have been wearing a collar and tie. Not now. Many of these were senior architects and developers and historians and City staff, but only a very small percentage had neck wear.
This kind of casualness seems to be standard now, at least here in Vancouver. Good thing, too, as I couldn’t find a tie to wear and so just skipped it.
Thank goodness I didn’t inherit a tie shop!
