There's nothing wrong with blue jeans, but there are some places I feel they don't belong. These are places I don't frequent much because I wear jeans all the time.
True, but there are places that wool suits don't belong, like anywhere south of DC between April and October. I've always felt that decent khakis and a light coat should be enough unless there is a corpse in the room (funeral or wedding, might as well be the same).

That's pretty much what I meant. Even down here where we are, Khakis and a polo or button down could still be nice and comfy.

But, right now, I'm not practicing what I'm preaching.

I'm with you on that. I went to a wedding in the middle of August, full suit, everyone was sweating and fanning themselves non stop.

I believe in wearing Jeans. I wear a skirt and heels to church or other such things but the rest of the week, I wear holes in my jeans.

I am a farmer and I don't own a suit or tie. If I dress up it is a new pair of jeans and a new Carhartt or Pendleton work shirt. I bought a bolo tie for my wedding and have worn it only a couple of times since, but I still wore a new pair of black jeans.

Wait, I do own a pair of wool dress slacks. My brother bought them for me to wear when he got married (in Hawaii! Wool pants!) but I haven't worn them since then. The white shirt he bought me was relegated to work duty and I wore it out. It was a little weird wearing a white formal dress shirt with pearl buttons out in the fields, but after awhile I got over it. It was nice and cool though!

I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea, I've got nothing against jeans! I actually have more suits than jeans, but the last time I wore a suit was to my grandmother's funeral Feb last year! It just means my jeans get washed much, much more.

I don't really count shorts as jeans, or cargo pants. I mean in the most literal sense, blue denim, of the cowboy (boot cut), straight leg, or relaxed fit. And maybe carpenter's or painter's.

I just remember pictures and home videos of my family from way back in the day. All the men wore a proper hat, slacks and button down shirt, or a suit and tie. They weren't banker types either. They were all farmers, but the only time they were wearing something other than what I mentioned was when they were actually out in the fields.
