Well Phil Mickelson had nice payday yeasterday, but had to conform to PGA DRESS CODE. Would not have been allowed on close in flip flops, t-shit, and cut offs.

I know one guy that made a fortune of wearing wife beaters. And he didn't need to be good a sports in real life.

Vin wears the piece with a bit of strength and masculinity not displayed inside of a suit.
The ability to accessorize definitely shows his humble upbringing.

Contrast that with Paul's outfit, which is wrinkly AF.

Are you dense? That's a costume in a movie.

Talk to me when he wears that to an industry event or a meeting with studio execs about a new project.

People in Hustler dressed well. Jackie Gleason looked like successful businessman.

Today most people do not own suits.

So its ok for a woman to go sleeveless but not a man?

But the lady looks like she is going to Prom.

I've seen outfits like this in places other than a Prom too.
The main point being if the fashion discussion is just to promote the game, then have some fun with it.

Everyone is so serious about the dress code, that there is no pause to just reflect on what has happened.

Men need to learn to shave their arms and armpits.

Well Willie Mosconi always dress well.

Back in day Flip Flops were for taking shower in community shower room.

Idea was less athletes or jungle rot.

Today Flip Flops are a fashion statement, or my shoes I wear went on patio.

The main point is let today's generation be part of the cultural norming of pool.

Dictating for pro events is good but at least have guidelines for a few steps below.

And leave some room for people to share their "personality"

Well most Sport have dress codes, codes of conduct, and individual team also have their own set of rules.

NCAA has a standard of GPA to participate in sports.

If want was to attract main stream sponsorship. The player need look more professional.

If not well money will never be like other sports.

That means committees and more participation from the community on how to structure professional pool and gateway leagues to larger pool events.

When was the last time the WPA held a members meeting and voted with players on governance issues?

A way of ‘sharking’ male opponents? The ‘50s poolroom I grew up in didn’t allow women. Few of it’s regular patrons could have held concentration against HER.

Pool is recreation, it is something to do to make you think, and make your mind work.

Local bar tournaments are for fun, honestly if you go home with First place money. Could have made more in a similar shift at Taco Bell.

That means the sport has helped advanced progress for women.

The sport did something for a large generation, and those women can continue what they've been doing because of the community they created.

The younger players formed the Euro tour and that became a new generation.

Is there a "dress code" or an interpretation of a dress code? I have an analogous argument with my other groups.

The dress code speech should be a weekly article. Its an advice column.
Have people call in with complaints?

I worn a polo but they didnt let me play because of the graphic on the back said "OFFENSIVE STATEMENT"

Honestly it does take a lot to get under my skin, your are approaching that zone.

if you see a problem, instead of just point your finger, then crying problem, problem.

show if your a man, or mouse. Men attack problems, mice just point and expect other to fix everything for them.

Are you a man? Or Mouse?
