I'll admit I'm getting old at 69 but sometimes I wonder if I'm living on
the same planet as everybody else.

I'm watching the local newscast and this crimestopper story comes on. A
well lit business is burglarized and there is a great picture of the
suspect in action. The anchor describes him as well dressed. WELL DRESSED?
This motherfucker is wearing a tank top, black jeans, tennis shoes and a
baseball cap. I can only guess they thought he was well dressed because
the baseball cap was turned frontwards.

I know more than half of you probably think this is well dressed but I am
old school.

My guess is 80%+ of RGP posters don't even own a suit and less than 1% have
ever set foot in a custom tailor's shop.
I used to have my suits and shirts custom made but, since retiring, just
rely on Brooks Brothers, Bullock & Jones and L.L. Bean. Of course, things
have changed, as well they should, from the days of John Molloy's "Dress for
Success". I personally like the more casual approach but what's considered
"well dressed" still depends on the company. I once worked for a Division
President who took it as an insult if you wrote him a personal note with a
ball point instead of a fountain pen. Another time, I saw a guy miss a
promotion because his prospective new boss didn't like the fact that he had
his initials monogrammed on the cuff of his shirt. Granted, it's pretty
tacky but, in my opinion, shouldn't be grounds for missing a promotion. But
then I like to wear jeans with Allen Edmonds lofers so what do I know.

The best way to rob and office is wear a suit. I see it all the time if
you look like you belong you don't need a pass.

When I worked for a trust company a guy stole 3 wallets out of purses. We
got him on camera coming in and out of the "secured area". You need a pass
to get in and a pass to get out. Both times he was let in by an employee.
The employee's reason was "he looked like he belonged here and forgot his
pass." Not one of them questioned who he was.

Hmmm. By your description, I'm pretty sure I dated that woman for
about 20 minutes back in the 80s.

In the 70's they didn't have surveillance cameras everywhere like they do
now. A woman walked into a bank in Shreveport Louisiana and gave the
teller a note that she was armed and wanted all the cash. They gave the
cash to her she got away. When the police came to investigate nobody could
tell them what she looked like.

The reason they couldn't recall what she looked like was because she had
on a fishnet see through top and no bra. I didn't follow the story, so I
don't know if they ever caught her.

I remember reading an article years ago about how important appearance is to
pan handlers. They had a guy in shabby cloths walk around Grand Central
Station and ask people for money, saying he had lost his wallet and needed
money to get home. The guy got next to nothing. Then they had the same guy
clean up and put on a nice suit and tie. He told the same story but had
very different results. I don't remember the exact figures but he got money
from a pretty amazing percentage of the people he approached. Must be a
lesson in there some where.

When I was in Cologne Germany we saw some gypsies begging for money. One
looked like a very old woman wearing this big black hooded cloak thing. She
was all hunched over with a cane. The local tour guide told us to look at
her hands, which were the only part of her that was visible. My guess is
she was in her early twenties. He said the women some times hold very small
babies when they beg. They drug the kids so they'll stay quiet and sleep
through the day's begging. They're also excellent pick pockets. The guide
warned us not to confront them because he said they aren't above cutting the
shit out of you if you corner them.
