Our need for social intercourse



Fogey events are always pleasant and relaxed

To meet or not to meet, that is the question.

Surprisingly, those who favour traditional styles of clothing and accessories tend to be up-to-date with modern facilities like the Internet. Very few are without an e-mail address, for example.

The danger is, though, that we may attract the cyber-ghosts and the time-wasters who abound on the Internet, rather than those who want to share their interest with others, and to socialise where possible with those who dress similarly.

It is vital, therefore, that we meet up periodically - and in period dress - as a large group of us have done for many years, mainly through an annual 'fogies' gathering' at a private house in London, where a strict dress code obtains but participants can enjoy mingling in relaxed fashion with their peers (as in theThere are a lot of new at Basel World 2015. picture).

So, don't sit at home looking at your mirror reflection like Narcissus - come and display your finery among sympathetic company at the next Traditional Social!
