I am of the mind that traditional thought must be accompanied by traditional dress. It shows respect for a given situation and the people involved and an appreciation for beauty. But even if one doesn’t dress in a traditional manner typically, they should always dress appropriately for whatever they are doing.
Here is a pretty versatile collection of clothing that will have you prepared for almost any situation. From work to play to those ambiguous situations in which you are not quite sure what to wear.
Comment if you have suggestions for additions, or two disagree with an addition or simply to laugh at the list.
