fish out of water but not on my plate

I can now say I’ve been to the ‘South Beach’ area of Miami. Twice actually, two night in a row on a business trip this week accompanying a customer out for a meal both nights. Mainly because of my attire I can also say I felt totally out of place. Not that I looked like a total goober, but it was clear my wardrobe was not in the same style worn by the affluent, young, hip crowd which dominated the scene. And since I don’t eat seafood my menu choices were limited.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

  1. What DO the hip, affluent & young crowd wear anyway?

    • marcsuttle says:

      men – jeans with the size sticker/labels still attached, loose fitting long sleeve cotton pullover shirts(looked like central america inspired clothing) or long sleeved silk shirts with french cuffs, wide pointed collars and mis-matched suit jacket.
      women – clothes so tight you couldn’t slip a needle between what they are wearing and their skin.
      birkenstocks on their feet, mussed hair-dos or shaved heads and they all drove the latest BMW or Mercedes.
