Dress MANners

So, we had a great time thinking through those manners that are particularly necessary for men living in Toronto in 2009.

I began our time by listing some benefits for having and using MANners (some a little tongue-in-cheek).

You should use good manners for these reasons:
  • You will offend less people.
  • Women will find you more attractive if you are single.
  • Married women will not be so disgusted at you.
  • You will likely appear smarter than you really are and that may get you a raise.
  • It is a way to love others.
  • You will likely gain more opportunities for the Gospel.

The we looked at some manners for dress.

  • Dress suitable for the occasion. Funerals and weddings generally require jacket and tie. Your 1993 high school jacket is probably due for retirement.
  • Avoid wearing objectionable images on your clothing
  • Do not expose your underwear. The only one who finds your underwear-exposure or “plumber-butt” sexy is you. And that is disgusting.
  • Unless planning on completing some manual labour, why not dress like you would for a casual date with your lady.
What do you think?  Are we on the right track?


  1. when it comes to lettin your baggy pants hang down so your boxers are exposed its absolutely cool and there's nothin immodest about it since its just stylish and girls love it

  2. It may be stylish to let your pants hang down, but the world's defenition of style is usually not the best. I think that most girls appreciate someone who is dressed neater... it makes them seem more mature and responsible, and really, keeping your pants up can still be stylish. Often, my friends and I will wish we could get some of the guys around us to buy a belt!
    But more importantly, I would urge you to look at your heart first... why do you want to wear what you wear? what do your clothes say about your relationship with God? are you reflecting his glory? anytime the Bible talks about modesty, it starts with dealing with your heart.

    what motivates the way you dress?
