    Are we or not? I hear the old rule about not wearing white after Labor Day is out of date, but I can't bring myself to do it. Old habits die hard, I guess.

    If nothing else is clean, I'll be wearing white. [​IMG]

    I thought the rule just applied to pants and shoes. I'll be wearing white shirts until it gets too cold for short sleeves. It's 96 degrees out there!

    I think this is a southern thing,
    but I don't wear white pants anyway.
    White flip flops maybe. But by the time
    I came out of the chicken coop, who would
    know what color they were?

    What is this white clothing you speak of? Only underwear is white, yes I wear it, but it stays UNDER my clothes.

    It really just applies to pant's/slacks and shoes, yes it's an old habit that is hard to break although I must admit I don't own any white pant's or shoes any longer. Here in the south it is a totally disregarded tradition as most around here have the style sense god gave a box of hair. Jeans and t-shirts or coveralls are about as dressed up as they get around here, well they might wash their hands if it's a wedding or a funeral LOL. As a displaced Yankee I still can't wrap my head around the whole dressing down idea or the younger generations ..........I don't care what I look like attitude, soon they will all be dressed as if your in a walmart........... don't laugh..... you know the ones LOL.

    So yes no White after Labor day absolutely not.
