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.January 24, 2018 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #1456451

That is in correct.
The mitzva of הצנע לכת does apply to men as well.January 25, 2018 12:46 pm at 12:46 pm #1456684icemelterParticipant
Joseph, I’m not sure you quite understand me. I referred specifically to ice cream without a spoon.January 25, 2018 12:46 pm at 12:46 pm #1456683yitzchokmParticipant

Modesty, I think I disagree with you, but I don’t even understand that string of words.January 25, 2018 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #1457345yehudayonaParticipant
Uh-oh. Joseph just banned all restaurants. Wedding halls too.January 25, 2018 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #1457348DisillusionedParticipant
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.January 25, 2018 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #1457366
YY: Wedding meals aren’t public. Restaurants where the patrons eating isn’t visible to the street aren’t either.January 25, 2018 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #1457428
Actually, some people make sure their wedding meals are more public.January 26, 2018 12:53 am at 12:53 am #1457453
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.January 26, 2018 6:16 am at 6:16 am #1457471
What is the distinction between a person from the street and a person who walked from the streets into the hall?January 26, 2018 7:37 am at 7:37 am #1457485

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.January 26, 2018 11:01 am at 11:01 am #1457565
You think eating in your living room is “eating in public” if you have many guests over for the Shabbos seuda?January 31, 2018 6:16 am at 6:16 am #1460336
Have you extended an open invitation to a large crowd?February 6, 2018 7:09 am at 7:09 am #1462966MTABParticipant
Of course men have a mitzvah to be tzinus. In Jerus there are signs about this. Tight pants are a big problem today.February 6, 2018 7:11 am at 7:11 am #1462967chilliworker2Participant
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!February 6, 2018 4:16 pm at 4:16 pm #1463818catch yourselfParticipant
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.February 6, 2018 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #1463973keithParticipant
What is wrong with cowboy boots? They are very comfortable. And stylish.February 6, 2018 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #1463990yehudayonaParticipant
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?
