Not if you're posing for the invite, lol!

But that's the excuse one guy was given when the doorman turned him away from the new gay club I wrote about this week.

("You should be more dressed up for a Friday night.")

And he was very surprised because he knew other guys had gotten in in T-shirts.

"I have never been turned away from a club in my life," he wrote in an email.

"I hate to think that the doorperson did not let us in because we are over 30.

"He looked at us twice before asking what we were wearing [under our jackets]."

I looked into this and the club publicist told me, "There's no dress code at xl and T-shirts are definitely welcome."

Well, so are over-30s -- in fact, over-90s in my case -- but I guess not all of them!

PS: Amusingly, the guy wrote his complaint to the wrong Brandon Voss.

(He sent it to the writer, not the Friday-night-party promoter, and somehow it got to me.)

I'm glad there isn't a Michael Musto who's a club promoter or I'd be fielding kvetches all day.

By 1968, the field of environmental physiology had advanced and expanded significantly, but the science of clothing in relation to environmental physiology had changed little.

enjoy the big new Corporate Circus! Ugly Oldies not allowed. And even that's played out.

I'm guessing that through the dress code (and high drink prices) they are doing a pre-emptive strike to weed out any element that won't bode well with the soon (?) -to-be-open adjoining hotel. And with an NYPD precinct right next door to the club, the policy probably will be in effect for some time....

What's the difference what anyone wears in a gay club? Either way, you're treated like an invisible nothing by characterologically damaged people.

I hope, if they're turning men away, they're banning lezzies altogether.

Clubs are always picky when they're the new girl in town...not so much six months (or less) later.

Yeah, I always wondered that. Don't clubs pick their crowds all the time based on looks? Don't some clubs have "two-for-one ladies night" or whatever? Not much you can do about it--not that it's right.

Well, doesn't a club have a right to pick and choose?

I doubt lezzies are lining up to go to this place. But at least they'd wear button down shirts, lol.
