It’s pretty clear that not all Rowdy Gentleman apparel would be welcome at the revered Yale Club in Manhattan.
Members at the private club for Ivy Leaguers are irate after one of the younger members wore a t-shirt reading “Fuck Forever” inside the gym locker room. These “declining dress standards” are bullshit and old rich men are not going to tolerate it anymore.
From Page Six:
The storied Ivy League private members club, housed in a 22-story neoclassical clubhouse near Grand Central Terminal, is holding its annual meeting. But members are complaining about a failure in enforcing the dress code, which insists on “business casual” and that “neat, respectful appearance is required at all times.”
One member wrote in a letter to the club, “A horrifying example of this denouement, this sad decline in the atmosphere and spirit of the club, occurred on September 5 in the men’s locker room. A young man (a Yale law student) was wearing a tee shirt emblazoned in large letters with: ‘F - - k Forever.’ I was shocked and told him that it was offensive and inappropriate; that this was a club for ladies and gentlemen. He smirked. Why was he allowed through the front door? Why did those on duty at the desk at the locker room allow him to enter? Why was he allowed to walk around the club dressed as such? Is there no decency at the club anymore, no class? Will the management be held accountable (and members)?”
How I read his letter:
“Is nothing sacred anymore? The prestigious Yale Club will not be overrun with a bunch of goddamn disingenuous, arrogant millennials in their $25 swag. Maybe the Dartmouth Club allows this kind of nonsense. I’m sure the Cornell Club could even find a leadership role for him. But the Yale Club? If I see his punk ass in here one more time I will email the law school dean and make sure no prominent New York law firm looks at his resume after graduation. Please stop little fucks like this at the door next time, or I will handle it myself.”
Tank tops and shirts with the word “fuck” on them are not business casual. Please stop ruining the Yale Club with your garbage clothing..
