Concerned About the Company

I was invited to attend a birthday party at a bar somewhere next week. It might be fun, I guess. But I looked at the invitation on Evite and I grew worried when I read this:

Jeans are OK but no sneakers please. But of course if you have a fedora you are encouraged to wear it.

I'm kind of worried that Justin Timberlake might be resting under the delusion that he's allowed to talk to me.

Fedora? Seriously?

People, listen to me: Fedoras are faddish. They look weird on most people. They're fine as a quirky accessory, I think, for a particular outfit on a particular type of person. But we should not mistake that to mean that they have been cleared by good taste to qualify as a fashion staple.

And this isn't a fedora party or a "Dress like Indiana Jones" party.

It's a regular party.

When did dress codes get so complicated and oddly specific?

I support the anti-Fedora stance here.
