Aside from, I refuse to dress a part that plays no role other than to serve to pretend to be something one has no nearness to, and that thing is class. The only thing dress has to do with class is represent how fraudulent some will be to disguise themselevs to appear to have it.
I go places where it is expected that people wear a suit, and I don't wear one. I wear jeans. If its formal I will wear a new pair. If it is really formal I will wear a new pair of black jeans. But I'm not gonna spend several hundred dollars on a suit that I'm only gonna wear once, if I buy a pair of jeans I will wear them out. Only exception to that so far was my brother's wedding where I was a groomsman, I bought a pair of black slacks and a white shirt like the other two groomsmen. The slacks (and dress shoes that I wore just for the ceremony then put my regular shoes on) were never worn again and the white shirt I wore out working in it. It was never white after I got home from the wedding though.

Hahahaha

I love slacks, hell I love how I look in a suit, but I look good in everything, cuz I'm just good looking. But that aside, what one wears, ever, is inconsequential, always. Don't get me wrong, it's been mandated by company policy that I wear a suit, and I've done the slacks and dress shirt thing, but jackets are too much. Uncomfortable, ugly boxed shoulders, heavy, too hot, etc! I will never wear a full suit on purpose. Only fakes and sheep do that.

Good handwriting and the ability to form a grammatically correct sentence. This would exclude almost everyone I've ever met.

Suits are fine, I just never wear them if I dont have to! Weddings and Funerals are about it, ive got a few sizes and pick one that fits my current size when I have to. Otherwise, Chinese Levis are about it...

Ha, ha- thats just silly! Ive been wearing the exact same model of Levi since I was 19 years old (when I was on my own and got to choose my clothing), only thing thats changed is the price, the place they are made and my waist size.

My wife suggested a few weeks ago that Wranglers were half the price and asked if I would try them, still mulling that over. I like to keep things as simple as I can, I never have to wonder what I want, just tell her its time to buy a couple more pair!

The Levi Strauss family that owns the company are actually flaming anti-gun liberals who live in San Francisco (or at least they used to in the '80's when the family re-acquired the controlling interest in the company).

I have worn Levi button fly 501's since I was a teenager as well, and I have a hard time reconciling that with their anti-gun agenda. Just recently learned that Carhartt makes button fly jeans too. I'm gonna give them a try and see if I can manage to switch. It would be the right thing to do after all. Plus, Carhartt is made in the USA!

I wear Wranglers, switched from Levis, and love them! Way more comfortable and fit better too!
