    Note that though some of these (such as the ice cream cone or the cowboy boots) are already known to be inadvisable for other reasons, I am only referring to tznius.

    Men set the rules, so they can set the rules to accommodate their requirements.

    Is it ok to eat ice cream in public without a spoon?

    Joseph, the Torah sets the rules, not men.

    That is in correct.
    The mitzva of הצנע לכת does apply to men as well.

    Joseph, I’m not sure you quite understand me. I referred specifically to ice cream without a spoon.

    Modesty, I think I disagree with you, but I don’t even understand that string of words.

    Uh-oh. Joseph just banned all restaurants. Wedding halls too.

    It is only the ignorant of Halacha that think that modesty is only for women. While there are stricter rules for men than women, the Shulchan Aruch clearly states modesty for men. Why do people think quoting wrong Halacha in this coffee room or anywhere is ok? If you don’t know….you don’t have to give others you ignorant answers. At least be honest and give a disclaimer that it is your own made up Judaism. Falsely misleading people….there is a price to pay.

    YY: Wedding meals aren’t public. Restaurants where the patrons eating isn’t visible to the street aren’t either.

    Actually, some people make sure their wedding meals are more public.

    More is relative. I’ve never seen a Chasuna seuda being held where people in the public street could see everyone eating. A Chasuna seuda is no more public that a Siyum seuda made in a Shul.

    What is the distinction between a person from the street and a person who walked from the streets into the hall?

    It says ….אוכל בשוק כאילו
    A שוק can Be indoor or our door, so why is it ok for hundreds Of people to eat in a wedding hall . the fact that it has a roof does not change the dynamics of a public areas.

    You think eating in your living room is “eating in public” if you have many guests over for the Shabbos seuda?

    Of course men have a mitzvah to be tzinus. In Jerus there are signs about this. Tight pants are a big problem today.

    there are rules in the shulchan aruch of how to eat, but they have nothing to do with tznius, which is the title of this discussion.
    ps. t22tango – can you quote a source for your – shuk being indoor too? doesn’t a shuk mean *out* in the streets. and the saying goes האוכל בשוק דומה לכלב. which by the way is referring mainly to mezonos, but of course eating in public is crass – WITH OR WITHOUT A SPOON!

    My Rav told me that the definition of שוק with regard to the rule of האוכל בשוק וכו is “a place that is not designated for eating,” so, for example, there is nothing wrong with eating in the food court of a mall, or at the sidewalk tables outside a cafe.

    What is wrong with cowboy boots? They are very comfortable. And stylish.

    CY, what would he say about a ball game?

    Joseph, many restaurants have windows. If the only available table is near the windows, do you walk out?
