If you read Suit's attached article you would realize that what you are sayin is not true.

Its name is an acronym for "For Us, By Us," a slogan that expressed the founders' purpose of creating a line of popular clothing designed for African-Americans, by African-Americans. At the time of FUBU's inauguration, though numerous clothiers were targeting black consumers for their urban wear, none of these companies was black-owned or black-run.

That acronym, meant as a positive statement of black empowerment, was not always received as such. Some perceived it as a declaration of black racism, an exclusionary bit of sign-posting that effectively warned off anyone not of color from the raiment.

Racism was not intended, though. At the time they brought FUBU into existence, the five young trendsetters who started the company were unaware that anyone other than urban blacks also favored that style of clothing. "We thought only inner-city kids were into Timberland," said CEO Daymond John. Theirs was a world where clothing worn exclusively by inner-city kids (or so they thought) wasn't being designed by them. They set out to change that, along the way adopting a company name that proudly expressed that intent.

Anyway, it says on the picture's caption that he just got off the plane. I see nothing wrong with wearing something comfortable for a long ride. I'm sure he knows what's appropriate and what's not.

Now that, I agree with. Long plane rides in a suit and tie is not the most comfortable situation to be in. Can't blame the guy.

So when you go on a business trip and are meeting clients for an airport meeting or travel directly from the airport to the office after your flight arrives, you wear whatever is comfortable on the flight?

I am fairly confident that the decision by Hines Ward to arrive in South Korea wearing a T-shirt was all about the Benjamins and had nothing to do with comfort. Too bad.

Personally, I travel in the suit and tie if I'm meeting associates. If I'm going on a vacation, which I believe is what Ward is doing, I would be dressed down. I really don't see the big deal with this, but that's just me.

i hear you atl dan. i have no shame in lounging im my boxers on an oversea flight and slipping into a suit before landing. (not that ive done that but i definitely would. plus theres ALWAYS hotties in the airport). lets hope hines is all business and representing his american dream and country like a true dignitary when he meets with the so. korean president. this is much bigger than the average vacation for him.

I'm still trying to figure out something here before I make assumptions........

Once he got off the plane, was he directly going to meet the Prez or do you think he was going to head to his hotel and get situated first? If I had to speculate (basically pure speculation is what this thread is really about), I would say he's heading to the hotel.

Hines is a very respectful man but did prolly wear the Tee and hat for comfort. Do you really think Hines needs to dress up to get hotties......in Korea where he's insanely famous? He'll be properly attired for the various ceremonies he'll be a part of later in the trip.

Jeeeez.... It must be the offseason if everyone is worried about his dress attire! Have any of you ever taken a real long flight? The longest I have ever been on was to Italy and it was 10 hours direct flight from Philly to Rome. I can assure everyone that I would never take that flight in a suit.
