My experience is almost exactly like Eagle's except that I have not moved out of the college town where I worked for 36 years. Daily wardrobe is washed khakis, polos in summer, LL Bean non iron OCBD in winter with sweaters and boat shoes or Timberland's with a tread for icy weather. Suits are down to five and sport coats are about ten in number and I've added a couple of "travel sport coats" that have several secure zippered pockets to hopefully ward off pickpockets when we're in Europe. I'm one of about two fellows who now wear a tie to church and our priest told both of us about two years ago, "hey- it's hot- you don't have to wear even the seersucker jackets now" Needless to say, we both resisted. Ive recently learned that he's not well and I may soon be the lone dinosaur in our parish. Not planning on checking out anytime soon but may well be a "singleton" in dressing for church.Hey, what do you expect? I am a retiree. I relocated to central Florida and purchased a home in a development that is ensconced in a golf course and what is effectively a nature preserve, with several beautiful nature trails that are just begging to be explored. Leisure rules and the clothing I kept (after the move) and wear regularly reflects that reality. My daily uniform consists of chinos, vented fishing shirts, with the sleeves rolled to the elbow (I think the count is up to 17 at this point), and boat shoes or penny loafers. Suits and sport coats are reserved for Sunday services and even then, I am part of a very small minority that is wearing anything more than the casual wear that I described as my Monday through Saturday uniform(s) or, even worse, shorts and printed T-shirts! Five suits and perhaps 9 sport coats remain in my closet, mostly unworn. I fear that inventory of more dressy garments will continue to shrink as time passes. Egad...I think I may be going native! LOL.
SO BE IT!
