What "Suits" Irish People
 
# 1 : Wednesday 23-10-2013 @ 12:08
 
 
During the Celtic Tiger (I decided not to add the "") there was a huge shift in how we saw ourselves. Smart, upwardly mobile, investor types who knew how to live and how to party. Were we all that though or were we like the reports of Yuppies in London in the 80s ie cocky assholes?
Does the recession suit our personality better?

Speaking of suits, A friend of mine visiting Dublin during the boom asked me why are there so many men dressed like they are on 1980's wall street with the stripped shirts and braces. Glad thats over. I doubt a recession suits any country but an artificial boom certainly doesn't.

I loathed the so called yuppie dressed down look....

Pinstriped shirts opened down worn with designer jeans and expensive sports jackets...Weemen dripped in a vat of Armani reeking of makeup and Gautier perfume.....Spare me from the yuppie tracksuits they were and still are gross!

I'm not going to say that recession suits us best but I am very glad to see the back of the brash, cocky, in your face arrogance of the Celtic Tiger days.

Stripy dark shirts with white collars. Might as well be an actual walking knob.

No it does not and only the dickheads became proper 'yuppies' during the boom time anyway.

...but what I think is that we became cocky self obsessed materialistic assholes. I really felt we had no soul and it was all new car, Gucci shoes and toys for Big Boys.

Everyone likes to look good but u don't need to drench urself in designer gear to do it, jus because someone likes to look good or buy expensive clothes doesn't make them a yuppie, some people are jus dickheads rich or poor,Celtic Tiger or recession
