I know there are a lot of folks out there who take the position that the folks who are doing the job with Occupy Wall Street (and any place else) should be able to dress however they like. I also know that there are folks who believe that their important message has been lost and not taken seriously because…they dress however they like.
This group, Suits for Wall Street takes the position that no one should allow appearance to act as a barrier to the world taking their ideas seriously.
Geronimo did it.
Emma Goldman did it.
Malcolm X did it.
Lincoln did it.
A. Phillip Randolph did it.
They all wore suits and they were all taken seriously. This group is looking for either contributions or people sending them suits; their plan is to show up with a mobile makeover unit (complete with radical barbers, I might add) on October 15th.
If nothing else, theatre requires appropriate costumes.
