Let me have your take on this:
Times seem to have changed. I've about gotten over the shock of seeing blue jeans and tennies at the occasional church-type event I go to (these days, mostly weddings and funerals.). But I'm still shocked at seeing jeans shorts at graveside.
I wear a uniform a lot. Most of the formal events that I go to involve court, where I wear a Class A uniform.
Let me hear your take on appropriate clothing.
When is a suit mandatory for a man to wear?
When is a dress shirt and tie mandatory?
When are tennis shoes out of the question?
When are walking shorts out of the question?
You opinon on caps and hats?
Collared shirts (golf shirts, polo shirts) versus T-shirts?
Tucked shirt vs. untucked?
And finally, buttoned-down collars on dress-shirts vs. non-buttoned-down collars? (My old college roommate Bill, has a wife who insists that button-downs are completely out of fashion, and are altogether too casual. Really? Since when?)
